Since spring is here, pink hair seemed like a good idea, and I still think it is because I am obsessed with it. But originally, it was full on no Bueno. You see, I forced my hair stylist into doing my hair pink, and at first I didn’t think it was pink enough. So, we redid it after calling the hair color company to see the best way to get it to stay and, well, it sure as heck stayed and made a home in my hair. When my hair stylist washed out the hair coloring it was terrifying; my hair was flaming fuschia. FUSCHIA! Yes, fuschia. This is fine for other people, but it wasn’t what I was going for.

The good news is, before this fiasco I had been religiously using my Madam C.J. Walker Ultra Moisturizing Co-Wash, Ultra Moisturizing Detangler, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, and Deep Conditioning Mask. I know without a shadow of a doubt that because I had been using these products, my hair could handle the torture I was about to put it through. Let’s just say that for the next two day’s I was washing my hair like a mad woman with color stripping products and then would restore my over processed hair using the Madam C.J. Walker hair care products. I did this over and over until I got to the hair color you see above.

Now that I have confessed my hair sins to you, I will show you the hair products that totally redeemed and saved my pink hair and my sanity and my spring hair care routine that I regularly do now.

Routine Step 1: I use this every 5 day’s usually because that’s how long I go between washing my hair. I just get my hair wet and then applied the co-wash. It doesn’t really suds up as much, so I made sure to really wash well and then rinse it out.

  • I love your hair and have considered going pink with my color so many times, but I’m so nervous of just killing me hair, ha! I have read so many really good reviews of that masque that I’m going to have to pick it up for sure!

  • I adore the pink you ended up with. Thank goodness your hair was healthy going into the pink dye process. I can only imagine it would have been so damaged if you hadn’t been using this line. The masque is pretty amazing. I love it too!
