One of the frequently asked questions I get from blondes is always how can I keep my hair looking bright and non-brassy. So many people struggle when it comes to maintaining that freshly colored or highlighted just-out-of-the-salon look, and end up with their hair looking dull and brassy after just a few weeks. The reason for this is from the toner that was used after your highlighting or coloring has started to fade, or it could be from mineral deposits from your water which can leave hair looking faded.
My number one most important must-have product for any blonde to help bust brass and keep hair looking bright would absolutely be to invest in a good purple shampoo. read on..

Where are my coco-nutty girls at? Coconut is high on my list of most favorite scents ever, along with vanilla. And lemongrass. Oh, and tea tree oil. Yes, I am aware this probably makes me seem like an ADD kid on a field trip to the scent factory but, anyway, lets be real.. if smelling like a freshly cracked coconut or an island piña colada is wrong, then I don't want to be right!
And don't be ashamed for wanting to smell like sunscreen all year long either, I've definitely been known to slather myself with Coppertone and coconut oil for a scent pick-me-up mid-winter when it's been raining for two weeks and all I want to do is fly somewhere warm and feel the sun on my cheeks.
