Need to Get Out to the Salon...? Use These 3 Easy Tips to Get You By:
- Try parting your hair in a zig-zag pattern or flip mostly to one side to create the illusion that your hair color or highlights are less for wear than they actually appear! This can be done best with a comb and try flat-ironing if needed once you've parted your hair.
- Go for an at-home gloss or color treatment enhancer products that can be washed and then rinsed out. Gloss treatments that work well with conditioners are those which have worked best from my own experiences and have really brought life back into color-treated locks.
- Apply a root touch-up product that provides temporary coverage to showing roots and works in a snap! The great part about these products is that aren't permanent and easy to apply- plus, they work like a charm. One of my top picks: Style Edit Root Touch-up Binding Powder with Color Binding Complex [check out more about it below!]
