I partnered with John Frieda® Hair Care to bring you this sponsored post.
Naturally Beautiful Hair
I always get asked how do I get my hair to look so naturally pretty. How is it so long and how is it that I don’t have my hair dyed. I’ve been dying and cutting my hair since I was in the 6th grade. So ever since my first year in college, I stopped “messing” with my hair because I wanted to see how much I loved (or hated) my natural hair. I’ve used John Frieda® Hair Care products for a long time. The John Frieda® Secret Weapon® Touch-Up Crème has been my favorite when it comes to calming frizz. So I was excited when they released a line of products that let you slightly change the color of your hair in a non-damaging way. The John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ and Visibly Deeper™ Collections are available for purchase at Walmart.
Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Collection deepens your natural hair color for lush, rich tones. This is the one I tried. I wanted to try it out and see if my hair really would look richer in color. I love my naturally dark hair, and the opportunity to give it a deeper rich tone without drying out my hair is great.
The first two photos in this post are how my hair looked before and after I used the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Deeper™ Colour Deepening Shampoo, Conditioner and Deepening Treatment. I did see my hair color slightly deepen in tone, and overall my hair looked much richer in color.
I like that John Frieda® Hair Care products also have a lightening collection in case I want to lighten my hair subtly. In addition to the Visibly Deeper™ they also have the Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ Collection, which give brunettes a natural-looking sun-kissed glow. The products gradually brighten without brassiness, which I’m a little curious to see what it would do to my dark hair. While the treatments provide a more instant change after one use, the Shampoo and Conditioner need around 3 to 5 uses to notice a change, so if you’re looking for an easy and non-damaging change to your hair make sure to check out these products.
My 3 Favorite & Easy Summer Hairstyles
In the summertime, I don’t usually like spending much time styling my hair. I like my hairstyles to be simple, quick and get the hair out of my face. If it’s really hot, I usually wear it up in a high or low ponytail.
These are the three favorite ways I style my hair in the summertime.
In a full ponytail; this, of course, is the simplest hairstyle, but the key to getting it to look stylish is the ponytail itself. I like having a full beach curl ponytail, so it has that summery vibe and has the look of being put together and casual at the same time.
In a side braid; when I want to go completely carefree a low side braid is usually how I style my hair. This hairstyle looks great with summer fedoras and baseball caps. Make sure you give a slight tug on the sides of your braid to create a thicker braid.
In a halfway part with a simple braid; it might be slightly difficult to see, but when I want my hair to look a little more “fancy” I leave half of it down and sweep small sections of my hair back and bring them together with a braid. This is a great hairstyle for summer date nights where you want to look stylish and cute.
How are you styling your hair this summer? If you’re looking to give darker or lighter hair a try, make sure to check out John Frieda® Brilliant Brunette® Visibly Brighter™ and Visibly Deeper™ Collections, they are pretty awesome!
