I dye my hair pretty regularly, or at least, I use to. Now I might dye it once every 9 months or so. I have been dying my hair blonde since I was 14, but in recent years had started dying it dark brown. A few months ago, I decided to go back to blonde and used a bleaching kit. My hair has never been that healthy from all the dying and this wasn't the first time I had bleached my hair. At one point, I bleached it and then immediately dyed it bright red.
I loved it, but because it wasn't permanent, the red faded out pretty quickly and since I had already bleached it once, I didn't want to do it again so my only option was to dye it black and gradually go back to a normal color.
I definitely was not a fan of the black and dyed the heck out of it until it went back to normal. Honestly, I am pretty surprised that my hair didn't fall out because this is NOT healthy to do to your hair.
Through a lot of hot oil treatments and regular trims, I managed to get my hair somewhat healthy again.
On top of the constant coloring, I also have naturally curly hair, but I blow dry it and straighten it constantly. My natural hair is just way too frizzy when it's air dried and anyone with naturally wavy or curly hair knows, a blow dryer sometimes isn't a very good option either. Even when I use products in my hair to manage the frizziness of it, it still looks a mess. Through the years and two kids my hair just doesn't hold a defined wavy to it anymore. I get a half wavy and half straight head of hair.
As you can see in the first photo, there's not much going on with my hair. This is what my hair looks like on a good day after I've done a hair mask or hot oil treatment. The second photo though, is the reality of my hair when I let it air dry and don't run a straightener through it. Ugh. Like a crazy lioness.
This brings me to Pureology Color Fanatic leave-in treatment.
I received a sample of this to review and, oh my gosh, I think I may have found the holy grail of hair products!
This is what my hair looks like when I use the leave-in treatment.
Not only does my hair look brighter, and healthier, but my waves are more defined. All I did was dry my hair with a cotton tshirt (trust me, this seems odd, but it's so much better for your hair than a towel), spray the treatment into my damp hair, and wrapped my hair up in a different, dry, tshirt for a few hours. All that was done last night and these photos were taken this morning.
Needless to say, I am in love!
I'm not entirely ecstatic about the price. I think $38 for a 13.5oz bottle is a little much, but when you consider that this is what major salons use, in addition to how great it is for your hair, I really think it's worth it.
It doesn't leave my hair sticky or greasy or stiff and it smells awesome!
