A Secret Weapon To My Great Hair Looks: Keratin Color and Gliss

Getting a short haircut six years ago was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The cut suits my features well and is extremely easy to care for and style.  Most importantly it is part of my identity now. I get a lot of questions of whether I will ever grow it out. The answer is no, I am not going back any time soon.

With short hair though, comes a major setback, the maintenance. It is pretty much a constant battle of either having to cut it or color it, and this usually must happen every two to three weeks.

While I love my hair salon treatments, I am at a point where the fight to keep the gray away on my sides is costing a pretty penny. So, I decided to explore the opportunity to dye my hair at home. I have had great experiences with Schwarzkopf products. When Schwarzkopf® approached me to work together, I jumped on the opportunity. I headed over to my local Rite Aid, which is the place where I stock up on all of our family’s beauty supplies and products. It has such a huge range of Schwarzkopf products. I picked up the Schwarzkopf® Keratin Color in the light golden brown shade. I also grabbed Gliss Repair Shampoo and Conditioner plus a few other beauty essentials and headed home to give them a test run. 

I get highlights a couple of times a year, so I only wanted to color my sides and the back of my head. These are the places my cut shows most of my gray. I prepped my hair with Keratin Color before applying the freshly mixed color.  

I was able to sip on a coffee and get some emails answered while the color was processing. Unlike being at the salon, I felt more productive getting this treatment in the comfort of my own home.

The Schwarzkopf Keratin Color box comes with a conditioning treatment that leaves your newly colored hair soft. Rite Aid is my go-to for beauty products, so I also picked up the Gliss Ultimate Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. This high-performance shampoo formula with 3x liquid keratin precisely repairs damaged hair and replaces lost keratin leaving your hair ultimately restored.

After styling my cut after color treatment, my hair felt and looked like I just walked out of my salon.

I am very happy with the results! Keratin Colors K●BOND-PLEX® Innovative, salon-inspired anti-breakage technology provides 100% gray coverage – which is what this girl is after! This is going to be such a lifesaver for me in between colors and highlights. I had no idea I can get salon-quality treatment like this at home. 

Have you guys ever dyed your hair at home? I would love to hear your tips and experiences below. 

Thank you for reading and keep styling,

    I used to dye my hair at home, but I stopped doing it. It always came out looking so brassy. I could never get it right for some reason.

    it looks so much easier than I thought it would be. I always thought I would be mess covered in chemicals. I really like how simple they make touch ups
