How I make hair color last

Guys, guys guys!! I have discovered the secret to more affordable hair products, okay well maybe my hair dresser helped a little….

Are you sick of spending money on $$ hair products like me? Using those color-care only products like our hair is made of gold is getting riduculous.

So what’s the big secret you ask?

  • dye-free
  • sulfate-free
  • paraban-free

I’m not kidding–you can put down the Bumble and Bumble, Nexxus, Redken, or whatever $15+ bottle of color-care shampoo and conditioner you are currently using. Seriously put it down.

Anyways, it all started when I was telling my hairdresser how I was mostly using the brand Fairy Tales, because of that unfortunate head lice incident I found myself in twice last year (you can read that story here). Prior to this, I myself was using Nexxus, but ended up switching so that those darn bugs would leave my hair alone. My hair dressers response? Oh yea, all those “free” products, are color-protecting in itself. WHAT???????????????? We are being fooled people, fooled!


So needless to say, the other day in Target, I wasn’t about to buy more Fairy Tales because it’s seriously ludicrous; as I was browsing the “organic” section, I found some fantastic and reasonably priced hair products.

Currently I am using ‘Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak’ shampoo and ‘Aveeno’s Restoring Conditioner’. Both of which are sulfate-free, dye-free, and paraban-free.

Because I am a product snob/lover, I am using the brand Davine’s hair serum for a little extra post shower.

PS: That brand of shampoo is only $5 and the conditioner is $6…they both freakin’ rock! Click to check out my YouTube channel and these products in the flesh!

Here’s a question for you all: did you know this secret? or was I the only one being fooled into spending more money? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
