When it comes to my overall hair, skin, and beauty routines, I will fully admit that my biggest beauty splurge is my hair. While I am naturally dark blonde (aka "dirty blonde"), I feel that highlights are essential to making me look and feel my best. At this point in time, my hair is very heavily highlighted and is very light blonde. Because my highlights are very expensive, I like to go as long as I can in-between highlights. So, I currently go about every 10 weeks.
With the investment of my highlights, I really like using good quality hair products to keep my highlighted hair looking and feeling its best. When it has been weeks since my last highlights appointment, sometimes my highlights are left looking brassy or dull. So, I love to explore shampoos and conditioners formulated specifically for highlighted hair.
With Honey Extract for Color-Treated Blonde or Highlighted Hair:
I recently got a travel sized pack of this Shampoo and Conditioner combo from Rene Furterer. These little tubes (1 oz conditioner and 1.69 oz shampoo) were just enough for about 4-5 uses (4 uses for the conditioner and 5 for the shampoo). This set came in a clear plastic zipper case which is great for carrying your airplane travel liquids! The shampoo gently cleanses hair and enhances highlights. These products contain Okara extract to help repair hair as well as natural Acacia Honey. I like the clean feel that this shampoo gives my hair. The conditioner restructures and detangles hair while further enhancing your highlights. After using these products a few times, I do feel that my hair looks a bit brighter and my highlights are more refreshed. Like many highlight-enhancing shampoos and conditioners, I do feel like these were somewhat drying to my hair (in comparison with my usual moisturizing products). However, I do feel that this is the sacrifice you have to make when using a highlight-boosting product. I think the best bet is to use these products in rotation with your other shampoos and conditioners (once a week maybe) to keep highlights looking fresh while not over-drying your hair.
