WATER COLOR HYDRATING HAIR MASQUE

Just when you think the rainbow and pastel tint trend is coming to a close, someone comes out with something like this and you just can’t wait to get your hands on it. It’s pretty safe to say that most of us got our hair color fix from HAIR CHALKING last year. And though hair chalks are really fun, they can be a bit drying because they’re made from a pigmented powder. This year we’re about to flip the script and get our color on using conditioner. The concept is nothing new– as you may know we were obsessed with the color conditioners by Davines, but there was really only one shade that made a major splash and that was PINK.! Luckily, WATER COLOR HYDRATING HAIR MASQUE has come out with a gorgeous array of pretty pigmented conditioners. I’ve tried them on a couple of clients over the past week and have loved each one so far. We mixed some of them together (like the yellow and seafoam to make mint) and they turned out amazing. For my girls with super light ends, I’ve added a little regular conditioner into my hands to make a hue that’s more pastel than pop. They’ve lasted about 2-5 shampoos and the big bonus– they don’t rub off on your clothes!! They work better if you have some lighter pieces in your hair but I was happy to see that “Ocean” showed up on brunette hair as well. Overall, these are getting the TBD stamp of approval for fun with color this summer!

Lauren’s pink cotton candy bun was pretty cute! As you may know, hair chalking has been around for a little while now and it’s a great way to temporarily add color to your locks. Above you see that chalk can create a very similar look to dye without commitment. But… with every action comes a reaction. There are several things you need to know about chalking your hair. Below are some tips + tricks along with some very important advice for before and after…

  • Twist the hair as you chalk. The texture from twisting makes the chalk release more pigment. (more…)
