Editorial Intern Charisse keeps her blonde hue bright with a little help from this color protecting wonder.
While we don’t completely agree that Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (see: Mad Men’s Joan, Rachel Weisz, and the list goes on), we do think that Marilyn’s character in the movie had a point when she proclaimed that maintaining brightly colored locks produces eye-catching results.
This spring we’re getting smart about protecting our pricey highlights with a simple solution: shampoo designed for color-treated hair. Prep your strands for sunnier days (and keep them safe from dulling UV rays) by loading up your shower caddy with one of our most recent favorites: Nick Chavez® Beverly Hills’ Color-Saver Sulfate Free Shampoo.
Your average shampoo formula uses drying sulfates to create a thick lather. While we certainly love our bubbles, sometimes their scrubbing tendencies can lead to dry, brittle strands. Instead, this ultra-gentle shampoo uses all-natural alternatives like antioxidant-packed white tea to keep your color glossy well into the dog days of summer. The formula also scores bonus points for its built-in UV filters, which keep your chosen shade looking like…well, your chosen shade.
For all you ladies with gorgeously dyed-locks we’re excited to say that we snapped up this recently launched product. Here’s how to test this new formula on your own locks:
Squeeze a quarter-sized amount of the fruity-smelling elixer into your palms, then massage into your scalp and throughout hair. Rinse thoroughly, style as usual, and prepare yourself for a flood of questions along the lines of, “did you just get your hair done?”
To create voluminous, red carpet-ready ‘dos—even if the only event on our calendars is a trip to the grocery store—use Nick Chavez’s Volumizing Extra Hold Spray.
