Hey guys! So the other week I got my hair done and did a little Q&A on Instagram stories. For today's blog post I put together the top questions and went into a little more detail. If you don't see your question below comment on this post and I will try to get it answered.
Q: What salon do you go to?
I have been seeing him for a few years now, and he has kind of become the hair stylist of the team... a lot of the wives now go to him, and we all LOVE him!
Q: How often do you color your hair?
A: To maintain my current look Alex recommends getting my roots done every 5-8 weeks. I don't mind rocking roots though so I push it at long as I still like the look of my hair. Sometimes that means I color it only 2 or 3 times a year.
Q: If you don't live in Montreal and can't see Alex what should you tell your hairdresser to get your color?
A: Alex recommends going to a salon that uses L'Oréal products. Please note that damage to your hair is virtually inevitable, but, if you have a hairdresser that takes care of your hair through the processing, you can minimize it.
To achieve my color you will start by bleaching the entire head with the use of L'Oréal’s Smartbond which helps protect the hair during lightening. He then uses a toner to achieve the final color which is L’Oréal DIALIGHT shade 10.12 frosty pearl milkshake.
Q: Is it safe to color your hair while pregnant?
A: This is something you should talk to your doctor about.
Q: How often do you wash your hair?
A: I try to wash it only once or twice a week. I get asked all the time how do I keep it from getting greasy. This is a blog post on it's own but I will give you a quick run down.
- If your hair is naturally more greasy you can try washing with a clarifying shampoo. Shampoo really well, maybe even twice while you are in teh shower.
- Only condition the ends of your hair.
- Avoid touching your hair, your hands have lots of dirt and oil on them.
- Use Dry shampoo, but not the first few days. My favorite brand is bumble and bumble.
- Pull your hair back when you are not out. When I am at home 95% of the time my hair is pulled back in a clip.
- brush your hair, this helps distribute the natural oils from teh scalp to the ends, which can help break up oil that collects at your roots. I brush my hair morning, midday and at night before bed.
Q: What hair products do you use?
A: To keep my hair from getting bronzey looking I always use a blue shampoo, hands down my favorite is Oligo Professionnel Blue Shampoo. It is the only one I can find that can keep my hair looking white. I also keep Keratase repairing shampoo for damaged hair in my shower for when I feel like my hair needs a little extra TLC.
For my hairbrush, I use this 'WetBrush mini'.
To curl my hair, I usually use a curling wand. I go back and forth between 25" and 32" just depends on how tight I want the curls. The most important thing is getting a curling wand that gets really hot. My old Nume wand which I loved broke and I am not a big fan of their new wands so I am currently on the hunt for a new one...I will keep you posted!
Q: Do you use extensions?
A: I don't or haven't in a long time. I do have a clip in extensions that I would use to give my hair a little extra volume, but I don't have any that match my current color. Mute Salon is starting to carry Balmain Hair extensions which is tempting to try!
Q: What is your natural hair color?
A: I would say that I am naturally a dirty blonde. As a kid, I had white blonde hair but it has darkened up as I have gotten older.
I hope this answers most of your questions!
