The Perfect Tone of Blonde
- by Cheree Clayton
Wella Blondor for colour. I like close, fine foils for a natural look and alternate between half a head and a full head every five weeks. My hair grows super fast so I opt for 5, but you could definitely get away with every 6 weeks. The Olaplex No.1 is mixed into the colour to kick start the bond multiplying process and work to strengthen every strand (more on this in a minute).
Tone it baby! I HATE anything brassy or golden so T tones with Wella Colour Touch to bring out that beautiful cool shade of blonde that I love.
Ahhhh the secret ingredient – Olaplex baby! Olaplex is designed to stop breakage in chemically treated hair. Step 2 is popped on after the tone and works to repair hair from within by strengthening, repairing and multiplying the bonds in your hair. I also use the take home step 3 once a week to maintain strength and healthiness. I have been dying my strands for over 15 years now and I can honestly say, it’s never been healthier! P.S Kim Kardashian uses it so it must be good right?
Pop some Wella Luxe Oil through the ends for instant shine and smoothness. We then use EVO Root Canal for extra oomph at the crown – mist it on the roots of hair at the top of your head for extra shape and volume and then blow-dry with a round brush. Voila!
Taliya and the girls at Harper’s only use Cloud Nine Irons for the perfect waves. They have temperature control which can be adjusted for hair thickness (so you don’t burn the bazookas out of your locks) and the technology of the plates gives the perfect waves every damn time!
You can purchase these in any Cloud Nine Salon or via the link below:
*EVO Ritual Salvation Care Shampoo.
*EVO Mane Attention Protein Treatment (as I only wash and and thermal dry my hair twice a week, I use the protein treatment instead of the conditioner for extra moisturizing)
*Olaplex Hair Perfector – Step 3, once a week. This is the last step in the Olaplex system and works to maintain the strength of the hair between salon visits.
*Wella Luxe Oil before blow-drying.
