Color Shield Oil Recipe

Planning a day outside in the summer sun?  Loading up curls with a leave in before you head out in helps keep them soft and tangle free. Try adding some natural oils to your leave in regimen to make it even more effective!


Mix these items the night before.  Add a tsp. The Red Raspberry oil to the dose of conditioner -it has UV protecting properties, which can help keep your color from fading or turning brassy. In a separate container, add a tsp. of Cucumber Seed Oil to a "serving" of your regular conditoner. Pop it in the fridge to chill. Cucumber Seed Oil has soothing and regenerative properties, it will feel amazing on a sun kissed scalp!

When you return inside for the evening, cleanse your curls and massage the chilled conditioner into your curls and scalp. Rinse out or leave in. Style as usual.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH. It's not harsh on your hair, though - the acidity of the vinegar is actually very gentle on the cuticle helping to close it down as …
