Whether you're a seasoned colorista, or taking the color plunge for the first time, research is always important when thinking about changing your hair (so reading this blog is a step in the right direction). Here are some uber-important points to consider before you hit the salon (or the bathroom sink if you're a DIY diva).
About two years ago, I decided to take the dive and do an icy silver pixie cut. I loved it, truly. But I am constantly trying to change up my style, and unfortunately with hair, its not so easy to bounce back and forth from 12 inches of long locks, to 2" messy spikes and a completely shaved undercut. (unless you've got some extra cash flow for hair extensions). With my recent move to Salt Lake City 6 months ago, I decided it was time to finally commit to growing my hair back. I would endure the awkward mullet, the baby 1" point tail, half of my head being uneven due to the undercut, the whole journey of growing a pixie, in my opinion, was NOT glamorous. Not to mention the breakage I had from damage that was preventing strength in my hair follicles. Cue my saviors: Sugarbear Hair Vitamins and Olaplex.
We've all heard it time and time again: "you must wear sunscreen everyday!" The beauty gods will harp on this until the cows come home, but the truth is, it's actually REALLY GOOD advice. A harsh reality is that 90% of all skin aging is caused by sun exposure. Sunscreen can be a pain, and the typically thick goopy stuff you've grown up with clogs your pores just by looking at it. But it's 2018 ladies (and gentleman) and the realm of sunscreen has become far more advanced than you're used to. Many cosmetics and CC creams have sunscreen built in, so there's no excuse to not protect the largest organ in our body that just so happens to be exposed to the sun every single day. If you're going to be wearing makeup anyway, why not go the extra preventative mile and cut down on aging from sun exposure while you're at it!
It's 2018, and amongst endless preventative health trends, beauty hacks, and trade secrets, there is still one classic, affordable solution to many beauty and health ailments that can be found in your pantry at home: Apple Cider Vinegar. It might sound like an old wive's tale, but its true, apple cider vinegar is a miracle in a bottle thats got health and beauty communities raving. ACV can boost your metabolism, clear up acne, lower blood sugar levels, and even clean your hair! Allow us to show you a few examples as to you why you've got to add Apple Cider Vinegar to your daily routine!
