The Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Schwarzkopf #KeratinColor #KeratinCaresSummer is one of my favorite seasons for several reasons! Number one being able to go to the beach whenever I want thanks to the beautiful weather, number two is because I can wear short flowy dresses all the time and number three is that I can take advantage of the heat to experiment with different hairstyles. Although I always create different hairstyles, the ones I love most are with braids. That’s why today I’m showing you my Go-To Half-Up Braid Hairstyle which is perfect for summer. But first, I’m want to share how I dye my hair at home as it has been a request from many of you.
In case you did not know, recently I discovered that I had gray hairs( ¡Yep, Sorpresa!) that’s why I went to Walmart and bought the Schwarzkopf Keratin Color in Midnight Black 1.1. I’ve used Schwarzkopf products in the past and I always fall in love with their products so I knew I would love this hair dye. This is a professional quality color at home so it’s perfect for us who want to save a little money and look fabulous. What I like the most about this Schwarzkopf Keratin Color is that it covers gray hair 100%, has a Pre-Treatment that care for your hair, prevents hair breakage and makes my hair look fuller and beautiful. Also, its application is super easy, here I show the process.
Step by Step: Hair Color At Home
Note: It’s Important to do a patch test before you use the product.
Before I start, I apply conditioner around my forehead and ears to avoid stains. I also like to wear an old t shirt just in case some of the dye gets on me.
Step 1: First, I wear the gloves that come with the kit and following the instructions I apply the pre-treatment on the ends of my hair.
Step 2: I squeeze the entire 2a tube into the 2b application bottle (Smells good, which is a plus!). Now, I make sure the application bottle is secure and “Shake, Shake, Shake” the bottle until everything is mix! I apply the entire bottle of Schwarzkopf Keratin Color in Midnight Black 1.1 onto my hair and make sure everything is covered. After that, I leave the color in my hair for 30 minutes.
Step 3: Then, I go to the shower and rinse the entire product, and use the Keratin Hair Complex Conditioner, leaving it for 2 minutes and listo.
I love that it covered my gray hairs, the intense luminous color and how shiny/soft my hair looks! Schwarzkopf Keratin Color in Midnight Black 1.1 has a beautiful blue undertone but it looks natural at the same time, it’s definitely a high-quality product, I recommend it!
The best part is that it’s affordable and accessible. I bought mine on Walmart and was located with all the Schwarzkopf hair dyes. If you would like to try one of Schwarzkopf product for free click here!
Now, how about we start with the hairstyle tutorial?
Step by Step: Half- Up Braid Hairstyle!
Step 1: I prefer to wear this hairstyle with straight hair but you can wear it how you prefer. I parted my hair to the side; grabbed a piece of hair in the front and I started making a dutch braid (I do the same on the other side.). With a bobby pin, I secure both braids!
Step 2: Once you have your braids, pull them apart!!! They look the best when they are “undone and messy”.
Step 3: Secure them together with bobby pins and you are ready to go!
I wear this hairstyle all the time because it’s so easy and cute, perfect for the summer! Hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know your favorite hairstyle during summer and if you have tried Schwarzkopf Keratin Color before or if you are planning to try it out!
