1. DIY Purple Hair Mask
I shared this little DIY tutorial over on my IG Stories highlights (still there under HAIR if you want to watch) that I use to refresh my blonde. I mix up my own purple hair mask and let it sit for about 20-30 minutes to cancel out any brassiness while deep conditioning at the same time. My blonde tends to turn a little golden yellow/orange in between highlights – can be caused by different water types, product build up etc. So to neutralize those colors, you have to use it’s complementary color on the color wheel.
A little art school lesson for ya: Purple cancels orange, blue cancels yellow.
Here are two of my favorite concoctions for my DIY Purple Hair Mask:
Kerastase Reflection Mask + Kerastase Reflection Touche Chromatique
Any regular Hair Mask + Amika Bust Your Brass Conditioner
Bonus: I LOVE the Alterna Color Hold Shampoo + Conditioner for regular color protection.
2. SodaStream Obsession
Don’t get me wrong, I will not be giving up my LaCroix infatuation anytime soon. If anything, it’s only amplified my obsession with carbonated water. So much so that I now also make my own using SodaStream. I love SodaStream because instead of casually drinking a LaCroix here and there, I’ll fill up my water bottle and have it next to me while I work. And I can tell myself “Okay Krystal, you have to finish this bottle of water before EOD.”
The bottle also makes it super easy to put the cap on and pop it into the fridge without losing the fizz. I can’t tell you how many times Jordan has put a half-full LaCroix can into the fridge thinking that he can go drink it later… NO FOOL, the bubbles will be gone. What he doesn’t know is that I throw it into my SodaStream bottle and then re-carbonate it. 😉
The flavor drops I like the best are the raspberry and lemon – so yummy for spring!
3. Capri Blue Products
If you have ever walked into an Anthropologie store, than you already know what Capri Blue Volcano smells like. It’s literally the scent of Anthro. Literally. They are always burning it in there. See this post for more about my Capri Blue candle obsession.
BUT what I want to scream to the world is that they now make a Capri Blue Volcano PERFUME and SOAP. My gosh, I can finally bathe myself in my favorite smelling candle of all time.
