Pink, green, blue, and purple. Those are just some of the many colorful heads of hair roaming around campus.

The past few years have shown a major trend in colorful hair, but dyeing your locks these fun crazy colors may have some consequences if not cared for correctly.

Breakage, brittleness, and dryness are some after effects of constantly dyed hair. That’s where I come in, I’m here to help you keep those strands bright, luscious, and healthy. I’ve had every hair color in the rainbow and in between, and suffered the aftermath each time, until now.

First, stop washing your hair every day! You may cringe at the thought, but that’s where dry shampoo comes in.

Washing your hair every day not only strips your color, but it also strips the natural oils in your hair that it needs, and can actually make your hair even more oily in the process.

Wash only three to four times a week, at most. Second, make sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners your go-to. Sulfate-free products will prolong your beautiful color longer. As mentioned earlier, dry shampoo is what can be used between washes, and soon it will become your best friend. I have no idea what I’d do without mine.

Last, hair masks are a crucial part in keeping your hair healthy from the damage of the dye. Used once weekly, they can restore moisture and bounce to over-processed hair. They can also help keep split ends and breakage at bay.

Now that we have the basics, let’s talk about which brands to actually use. There are thousands of brands out there and it can be extremely overwhelming to find the exact one to choose for your own hair type and need.

I can attest, the best brands of hair care currently on the market are Aveda and Oribe. They carry everything you need, specifically designed for any and all hair types, and they have transformed the game for me.

Thanks to them, I no longer have to dye my hair every few weeks.

The specific items I’m using have catered to and healed every hair concern I’ve ever had. Another significant feature is that Aveda’s ingredients are all natural and organic. Their mission is to help the environment by setting a business standard in environmental sustainability.

Aveda also promotes the use of plant-derived materials. Helping the environment while keeping your hair healthy in the process is something to certainly get behind and promote.

Oribe’s philosophy is highperformance, treatment-based products, founded by celebrity hairstylists Daniel Kaner and Tev Finger.

The packaging is designed with ultimate glam in mind, and what’s inside the bottles are pure magic for your hair. The creative minds of Kaner and Finger have essentially created a brand that feels and looks luxurious every single time you use it.

Aveda and Oribe can be purchased online or in specialty salons right here in Bakersfield, your hair will truly thank you.
