|A deep moisturising masque twice-a-month will change your life — you know, relatively speaking. . .|
Instead of a melange of my favorite hairstyles and products, I decided to go with just the products today.
Tomorrow I’ll show you why and how I like mid-lengths and at the same time a few pictures of women who break all the rules and it works for them. Their hair underscores their personality and many never changed their cuts and color.
|The shampoos really do come out of the tube or bottle in this gorgeous, yet startling color. Do not fear.|
Let’s talk violet shampoos. Their mission is to erase brassy tones whether in natural or coloured hair. I use the one from L’Oreal at the recommendation of Michelle, my colourist, but I have used others. Mine, although it says blonde on the bottle, works equally well for grey and white hair. I’m told it also gives depth to dark hair.
|Both are great. I’m currently using the L’Oreal.|
balayage Michelle tells me to wait three weeks before using a violet shampoo and she recommends it as the second shampoo after a neutral product.
|A few choices for masques that will, I promise, make a difference.|
|Specifically for grey and white hair. Michelle tells me it works wonders.|
Many years of experience have taught me that deep masques are essential to have shiny — and yes “bouncy” — hair. Now, one can apply the masque as directed on the product, but all the experts tell me if we’re looking for spectacular results (slight exaggeration), leave the masque on for at least a half-hour and cover the hair with a wet towel, wrung out, placed in a pyrex baking dish for example and nuked in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.
If you’re up for it, sleeping in the masque produces even better results. Cover gooped-up hair with a shower cap, cover your pillowcase with a clean towel and try to sleep.
