Why do I never seem to learn my lesson that summer weather and highlights just don't seem to mix? I mean, they look great, and they definitely lend a beachy vibe to my everyday looks, but man they are hard on the hair. I have a stylist I love, and she did a great job taking me super blonde, but I really miss the shine, flexibility, and bounce that my hair had when it was closer to its natural color.
Every haircare line has products that boast to repair the type of epic damage that has been inflicted upon my tresses, but I don't buy it. Well, I mean I do buy it--them--routinely, and I try these products, but so far, few of them have done much. Here's what hasn't really helped my crispy, cotton candy textured hair: Aveda Dry Remedy (the new formula), Kerastase Elixir Ultime, and L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil. Here's what's made a dent in the problem: Bumble & Bumble Mending Shampoo, Masque, and Leave-In. Here's what actually seems to be fixing it: Shu Uemura Ultimate Remedy.
