It’s all about taking care of yourself during this #quarantine ✨ We are using products from the March monthly & Deluxe boxes to pamper our red hair. This is what we are doing: 1️⃣ @cleure Conditioning Mist can be used on wet or dry hair. Softens hair and controls frizz. We love to use this as a detangler and leave in all day! 2️⃣ @julienfarel’s Defrizz Conditioner is fabulous! We use this after shampooing and conditioning in the shower. Leave on for 2 minutes and rinse. 3️⃣ @biosilkhaircare Silk Therapy is good for those days when you feel like your hair needs a little more shine. Apply a small amount from scalp to ends. 4️⃣ @sooae.official Intensive Hair Mask is another mask we love applying in shower after shampooing and conditioning. You can leave this on for 5-10 minutes. 5️⃣ @watercolorshair nothing makes a redhead feel better than vibrant locks! Mix in with your shampoo and conditioner when doing these conditioning treatments ❤️👩🏻‍🦰
