Brunette to Blonde | Hair Care

Hair 4 .JPG

About 3 months ago I began the process of gradually going blonde. I wanted color that isn’t a ton of maintenance; so my hairdresser and I decided to lighten my overall color just a shade or two, and then she went in with heavy highlights in a range of blondes from caramel to ash. I will be getting more highlights soon, but I have really been loving it! Even as the color grows out and my roots are more noticeable, the color still looks great.

I am using some new hair products to keep overall health of my hair and keep the blonde strands from becoming brassy. Over these past months I have fallen in love with the Matrix Biolage line of products my hair dresser introduced me to; so much that I started branching off from just the shampoo and conditioner she suggested, and I have been using their leave in conditioners and stylers daily.

Current hair care products below:

Pre-Shampoo: Olaplex - This thick cream is a bond builder. I apply generously on damp hair before shampooing and rinse completely out. This has been a game changer, I was actually using this product before I colored my hair because I had heard such great things, now it’s a staple in my routine and I use it weekly. (more on the complete Olaplex process here)


Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Scalp Care anti-dandruff shampoo - contains salicylic acid that is gentle and not irritating to my sensitive scalp but leaves it feeling clean.

Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Shampoo - gently cleanses while preserving color and tone.

Matrix Biolage R.A.W. Color Care Conditioner - nourishes and adds shine to keep my blonde strands soft and smooth. My hair feels like butter after using this conditioner.

Leave in/Style:

Matrix Biolage Keratin Dose Renewal spay - I use this straight out of the shower on wet/damp hair. I spray it generously to help detangle and moisturize. It is also lightweight enough to use throughout the week, if my hair feels dry in between washes.

Matrix Biolage Styling BlowDry Glotion - This cream is a must if I am going to blow dry or steam straighten my hair. It provides heat protection and leaves my hair soft and manageable.

Matrix Biolage 3 Butter Control System Day Cream - This has been my go to styling product, it is thick, so I only use it after a fresh wash, but it is so creamy and moisturizing; I also haven’t experienced any product build up with this like I have with other heavy creams in the past.
