Having had bleached hair for 2.5 years, I should really have more hair product faves and recommendations at this point — but TBH, I don't put as much effort into hair care as I do for skincare (and collecting way too much makeup, for that matter). But I'm trying to change that and have a more thought-out hair routine! However, do you realize how many products require you to towel-dry your hair, put the product in, and then RINSE OFF AGAIN? I have relatively long hair and the thought of adding extra time onto my usual shampoo and conditioner makes my lazy heart tremble. I'm sorry, maybe one day I'll get there. Or chop my hair off first.
Anyways, after some experimentation, all of the quickie, three-minute hair masks (I'm talking Pantene 3 Minute Miracle, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle, etc.) seem right up my alley. And well, this L'Oreal Rapid Reviver Conditioner only takes a MINUTE (ok, I'll leave it in for two if I'm distracted by music) and it's specifically for color-treated hair. It contains 20% conditioning serum, antioxidants, and pomegranate to hydrate, detangle (a big issue of mine), and "revive." It's a lightweight formula so it's super easy and quick to comb through my hair and rinse out in no time.
Whereas before I'd just use color-safe shampoo, pink-toned conditioner, and maybe apply some oil to my ends, my hair looks neat and managed and feels soft to the touch as soon as I get out of the shower — and now that I'm consistently blow-drying my hair instead of mostly air-drying, I also feel like my hair stays lookin' sleek and doesn't become a frizzy mess after drying.
