Hair Transformation: Khaleesi Platinum

I have a short attention span and I love changing things up – From my apartment decor to my hair color.

This latest hair transformation was a dramatic one though, even for me. So we decided to document it in a Hair Survival Guide of sorts.

Here are the basic stats:

3 – Appointments with Natalie Keklikian {Read her tips on Salon Etiquette here}

1 – Overnight hair mask a week

2 – Maximum shampoos a week

3 – The number of Khaleesi references I’ve gotten so far

6 – Inches we cut off on our last appointment to leave me with the healthiest hair possible

Curious how I’m keeping my newly platinum locks healthy despite all the treatments? Moisture, moisture, moisture. Check out my favorite products below!

I legitimately couldn’t live without any of these. The hair masks are so hydrating and I always add argan oil when my hair is wet. I use the Kevin Murphy purple set every other week and the Pureology Precious Oil line the other times.

Hair Transformation: Redhead to Platinum Blond

A hair transformation is always a challenge, and undertaking a darker-to-lighter shift isn’t for a faint of heart.

After a few years as a redhead I recently made the decision to give a silvery platinum blond a try. Just, you know, to find out if blondes really do have more fun.

Three appointments and a lot of at-home hair treatments later I’m thrilled with the results. What I’ve learned from this experience is twofold.

First and foremost, anyone who wants to “go blond” should have to sign a release waiver. It’s a serious process and the upkeep is BANANAS, it would be pretty devastating if you didn’t know what you were getting yourself into. {Check out my Salon Etiquette post for other salon-related suggestions}

Second, keeping your hair healthy is your number one goal. I became the master of hair products over the past few months and have been using dry shampoo, oils, and masks like nobody’s business.

Read on to see some of the products that I’ve fallen head-over-heels in love with this Spring to keep my hair healthy and manageable:

On a daily basis L’Oreal’s EverSleek Precious Oil Treatment goes on the ends of my hair while Alterna’s Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo in Bamboo Leaf Scent goes on my roots.

Whenever I need a little boost I turn to the Hair Chemist Coconut Oil Deep Repair Masque or the Macadamia Natural Oil Deep Repair Masque.

And while I’ve been trying to wash my hair as little as possible, when I do I’ve been using Pureology’s Precious Oil Shamp’oil and Precious Oil Softening Conditioner.
