I've had pink hair for a couple years now, but I've always struggled with finding the perfect products for treating ultra damaged, bleached hair. I'd try products and like them, but I wasn't really blown away by anything, you know? But finally, I feel like I've found a really solid selection of hair products I love enough to recommend!
Hair Care Products
Having pastel hair is hard, but these products make it easier! I still haven't found the perfect shampoo that doesn't make my bleached, damaged hair feel TERRIBLE, sadly - if you have any recommendations please let me know!
Ritual Salvation Repairing Conditioner *
About a month ago I was sent some evo hair products to try out, and the first time I used the conditioner I was immediately struck by how lovely it lathered up, smelled, and my hair felt after rinsing it out. Over time, it's helped my hair stay tangle free and has become my holy grail conditioner!
OverTone Pastel Pink Daily Conditioner *
Truly a must have for any vibrant or pastel hair owner, OverTone is PERFECT for keeping your hair color vibrant in-between dye touch-ups. Besides dry/damaged hair, having the color rinse out fairly quickly is one of my biggest pastel hair related pet peeves, but OverTone's conditioners and products help so much! (If you are wondering, the Pastel Pink is a little blue toned. Down the road I'd like to mix the Pastel Pink with an orange shade of their conditioners for a more peachy toned shade).
The Great Hydrator Moisture Mask *
An incredible mask that adds so much moisture to my hair! My hair hasn't been anywhere near as dry since using this mask, and makes it so much easier to comb through every night! Their product description is pretty spot on too: "This product is like a patient friend, gently combing out the knots in your hair while another friend lays petals upon the ground to soften your walk to the morning bus".
Mane Attention Protein Treatment *
A protein treatment that strengthens your hair and I've been having such incredible luck with!
Trader Joe's Coconut Oil
Like everybody else I am OBSESSED with coconut oil, and my friend Roanne's recommendation of Trader Joe's coconut oil was spot on - it's been working wonders! (please excuse the grubby jar - I've had it for a while now and I got it out of the shower for this photo!)
L'Oréal's Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm & Total Repair 5 Extreme Instant Therapy Mask
These aren't pictured because I *just* ran out, but I've had great luck with the affordable and accessible L'Oréal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm and Total Repair 5 Extreme Instant Therapy Mask! And they both smell PHENOMENAL.
Hair Styling Products
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Primer
Now if you also have bleached hair, I DO NOT RECOMMEND USING HEAT STYLING. But sometimes, I don't have time to pin curl or put foam rollers in my hair - so I have to make do! That said, I feel like this Bumble and Bumble primer does a pretty good job as a heat protective! Besides that, it's a great all around hair styling product - it soothes frizz, has a sweet, gentle scent, and is formulated without paragons and phthalates.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
A recommendation from my sister, we both are incredibly impressed with Batiste's dry shampoos! Another must have product imo - affordable, easy to find (I get mine at Ulta or Target), and it WORKS. I had tried a few in the past and didn't get why everybody loved dry shampoo, until Batiste! The cherry scent is my favorite 🍒
Sebastian Shaper Plus Extra Hold Hairspray
Finally, this is the hairspray I've been using. I actually started using it because it was my mom's favorite in the 80s! I like using this for extra volume. (NOTE: please use in a well ventilated area...!)
Phew - I had more to say then I thought haha! I get so many questions about my hair, I really hope this helps some of you! I am not an expert by any means, but these are the products I've been loving lately. If you have any hair recommendations, comments, or questions, please leave them below! I also am planning on sharing some hair tutorials soon - so let me know if you have any requests!
