Hey guys this is Mi-Anne and this is Beauty With Mi. As you guys know I dyed my hair in January and I went pink. And since then I have been on a hunt for products, that will A) maintain the color of my hair and B) maintain the health of my hair. And I feel like I’ve gotten to a good place with the products, so I decided to do a little hair update cause you guys have been asking for it.
But first don’t forget to subscribe down below. Beauty With Mi comes out every single Monday at 11 a.m. Please make sure you are part of the family. Without further ado let’s get into Before I dyed my hair, I wash my hair pretty much every single day. I had had a very oily scalp but now that my hair is a lot drier, my hair is absorbing a lot of the oil that my scalp produces. So I only need to wash my hair about twice a week. So before I even get in the shower I always put on a hair mask. It’s called Masque For Beautiful Color. I just put it in my hair dry. I can’t be bothered to put a mask in, in my wet hair, and sit around in the shower for 10 minutes while it absorbs, naked and cold. So I get a huge scoop full of it, and put it into my hair, put it up into a little bun. And then just kind of do stuff around my house until it’s absorbed.
This mask is really nice. It is ridiculously expensive but I do think it keeps my hair really soft. Then once I’m in the shower is when I will wash my hair. I use this shampoo. It’s called the Ouai Repair Shampoo and it is so good. I don’t know if this happens to you guys with double processed hair, but now that I wash my hair a lot less I get more dandruff. So what I do in the shower, which I didn’t do before is I really give my scalp a good massage and a good exfoliation when I’m doing my shampoo. But if you guys have any tips or things that I should be doing to keep the dandruff away, please let me know in the comments because I definitely haven’t found a good solution for that yet.
So after I shampoo my hair I usually move onto conditioner. Now I know that I’ve already masked so I already have the moisture that I need in my hair, but I use conditioner to inject more color. So I use this conditioner from Overtone and it’s called the Daily Pastel Pink Conditioner. And I mix it with this other conditioner that’s purple, from this brand called Function Of Beauty. Now Function Of Beauty is a really interesting brand, because they customized shampoo to your hair type. So not a single shampoo and conditioner they’ve ever made is the same.
I’ll put a little bit of the pink conditioner in my hand and then a couple pumps of the purple conditioner in my hand. Mix it together and smooth it through my hair really working it in to every bit. And then I leave it in my hair for about two to three minutes, like while I’m washing my body or shaving and then I rinse it out. It won’t dye your hair the two or three shades darker, but what it will do is inject just a little bit of color, so that what you’re losing when you shampoo your hair gets put back in when you condition.
And that’s pretty much my entire hair washing routine. I get out of the shower and I typically air dry. Madison my colorist at Spoke & Weal, told me that after I got my hair bleach I would notice a bit of textural change. So I have. My hair is a bit more wavy, it has a bit more of that beachy texture that I actually really like. I’ll usually spend about two to three days just rocking my air dried hair, but then on the third or fourth day is when it starts to get a little bit greasy. So I’ll use a little bit of dry shampoo. It is the Klorane Dry Shampoo with oat milk. This is a non-aerosol version. So instead of having an aerosol spray, you squeeze it out and powder gets in your hair and you kind of rub it in. I do find this does a good job of controlling oil. It also gives your hair a little bit of grittiness that’s nice for styling. So toward the third or fourth day when things start getting a little greasy, a little flat, a little dull that’s when I will pull out my straightener and style my hair.
So before I straighten my hair I’ll use Nature Lab Perfect Volume Texture Mist, which is basically a liquid texturizer that also doubles as a color and heat protectant. So I’ll just put this in my hair let it dry and then throw in some flat iron waves. I use this straightener. It’s a Bio Ionic Straightener and it vibrates. You can press a little button and it goes zzz.
And it helps move the plates along your hair. I like it because it is a nice one inch and it has a tapered end here it makes it easy to curl. So Jon Reyman, who’s one of the founders of Spoke & Weal where I got my hair colored, actually taught me this technique. So you can do it like this where you’re kind of creating an “S” wave in your hair pulling it back and forth down and keeping the end straight.
Or take it and twist it like this and then twist it twice. So what’s so great about this technique is that it’s supposed to look a little messy and a little tussled. You can do parts of your hair but you don’t have to worry about getting every last piece. And since my hair is again more textured than it was before, I find that I can just really focus on the front and get a bit of the back. And it’ll be a passable look. As the last step of my hairstyling routine I’ll throw in a little bit of texture cream. If you guys have watched my videos before you might recognize this guy. This is the Verb Texture Cream. I did a whole video talking about those products. But this is just a very lovely texturizing cream. It’s very soft, you put it in your hands. I usually scrunch up in my hair to give me a little bit more texture and volume.
And then I’ll take the excess and smooth down my flyaways. And what I love about this cream is it does give me a little bit of piece-y texture, without weighing down my hair, without making my hair feel crunchy and that’s what I love about it. So that’s it folks, I think I’ve done a pretty good job of paring it down. The routine itself doesn’t take me that long to do, but I’m still constantly looking for new things to try. So if you guys have color treated hair or if you know any products that you think I might like please let me know down below. Because I always want to try new things.
