To me Bridget Bardot has always been the hair idol, the one with the most perfect hair. Blonde, long, full of body and with that "effortless" look. I spent four hours at my salon on Friday for color. I typically get highlights and low lights. But I recently decided I don't really want the golden shades of blonde I usually get. I want really blonde, white blonde, hair. After a long morning at the salon, I got it! Bridget Bardot Blonde.Uploaded from the &<span class= Uploaded from the &<span class=
I love Instagram pics, but you can't really see the level of blondeness I now posess (feeling stupider already.....), so I posted two pics!

With part one of my "Bardot mission" completed, two products are required to achieve the sexy fullness of Bardot's hair. Enter Oribe.Oribe, or Mr. Oribe as I like to call him, though Oribe is his first name, has a full line of wonderful hair products. I'm sure they all work well and are worth the investment. However, my amazing stylist never tries to sell me on products just because the salon carries them. I use Clairol Purple Shampoo to "keep the yellow out" and it cost $5 at Sally's. So, when she told me the Oribe Dry would change my life, I figured she meant business. This product is amazing and truly works! It adds body without flaking, smells amazing (if you've ever stayed at The Swan at WWD, these products literally smell like the hotel lobby. Seriously! it's the only way I can describe it, and when my husband smelled it, he immediately said, "This smells just like The Swan!") and works to add texture to freshly washed hair, boost the roots and also works as a dry shampoo between washings.

The other product my stylist uses herself and suggested to me is a Kerastase at home treatment. It's actually for meant thinning hair, but has added so much body and fullness to my hair, I think anyone with thin/fine hair will benefit from it! It runs $60 for a full kit and since I wash my hair twice a week (you should not be washing you hair daily*. I know, I know, you think you need to, but you don't! Start with every other day and you'll be happy to notice your scalp will get less and less oily. You just have to get through the first few days at every other day and then go to every third day. HONESTLY, washing every day is actually causing your oily scalp because you strip your hair of natural oils. Once your scalp gets used to fewer washings, you'll notice it'll be way less oily and the texture will improve....) it's more than a month's worth and I'm seeing serious results.

Both of these products are available on amazon or your salon if they carry these lines.
