I partnered with John Frieda® Hair Care in this sponsored post.
Good morning lovelies! I’m so excited to share this sponsored post with you today, because John Frieda® Hair Care has been making my hair routine so much easier, and I know you’re going to love all these time saving hacks for maintaining gorgeous hair this summer!
1. boost your color at home
When I recently chopped my hair shorter and dyed it to a darker brunette shade, I loved the new look, but I didn’t love constantly battling the color fade. I work full-time and in my free time I like to be out enjoying summer fun… not stressing over my hair!
So when I was asked to try out the John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Collection (find it at Walmart) I jumped at the chance! Now instead of frequent trips to the salon (seriously who has time or money for that?) I’m using Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Colour Deepening shampoo and conditioner to deepen my color in the shower with zero extra effort.
My color was already faded when I started using Visibly Deeper™ shampoo and conditioner, so for instant gratification I also used the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Colour Deepening Treatment for 10 minutes (can see results in 5 minutes as well) in the shower. It was just what I needed, adding a richness to my color while deepening my highlights. All three products in the Visibly Deeper™ line are non-damaging & safe for natural & color treated hair, so adding these to my summer hair routine was a major win-win!
2. wash your hair at night
Morning shower girls, I have no idea how you make it out the door at any reasonable hour. I always wash my hair at night which gives me time to let my locks air dry while I go about my bedtime routine and a little more time to spend styling it in the morning.
3. blow dry only your mohawk
This is a top secret trick that my stylist taught me! To save time only focus on blow drying the “mohawk” section of your hair. Why? Because that’s the area the frames your face. When your face framing layers are on point then you can get away with a little laziness on lower layers of your hair. I use this trick when I want to rock that messy-but-not-too-messy bedhead look (this is also a great trick to turn to while traveling).
4. sleep in a braid
I’m generally a curling iron addict, but when I want beautiful waves with zero effort this is my favorite trick. Towel dry your hair at night, braid, then head off to bed! Try French braid pigtails for smaller waves, or one bigger braid for loose beachy waves. This is another favorite hair styling hack of mine while traveling or camping during the summer!
5. get 2 days out of your ‘do
When your hair is looking fabulous, don’t waste it! Get an extra day out of your hairstyle by securing it in a loose twisted bun (or a braid) before bed. Pro tip: wrap your hair in a scarf to prevent frizz from pillow friction!
These are my favorite time saving hair hacks, but what did I miss? Share your tips with me in the comments!
