How to wash your hair properly

Completely soak your hair with water by rinsing it for around a minute. Use a medium water temperature that does not burn you because if the water is too hot if will strip your hair of its natural oils which you don’t want to do.

Rub a small amount of the shampoo of your choice (not too much) into the palms of your hands, then massage onto the scalp area of your head.

Completely rinse your hair until water runs out with no bubbles.

How can I prevent my highlights from turning brassy

The sun interacts with every shade of hair color and causes them to oxidize (even in winter), so it’s smart to wear a hat whenever you’re outside. When my champagne-colored highlights start looking brassy, my colorist mixes me a purple/blue-based shampoo (the tint takes out those coppery tones).

While it won’t make my highlights champagne again, it does turn them a soft brown. Wash with it at least once a week to keep your highlights (whatever their color) from turning on you. Or run back to the salon for a toner—it won’t cover grays, but it will extend the life of your highlights.


I hate my bangs. What can I do?

It’s one of those things that’s happened to all of us. Aside from wearing a hate or headband, I’ve found that it helps to style bangs all piece-y (using a tiny dab of styling cream). Once they get longer than your brows, you can pin them to one side with a bobby pin. Another idea to get them off your face: Hold the bangs together up in the air and twist back over your head, then cross two pins over them to secure. Be patient—it could take at least four to six weeks for bangs to (noticeably) grow out.
