Survival Guide for Bleached & Damaged Hair


I’ve been bleaching my hair since a very young age and it’s really important to me that my hair looks healthy after everything I put it through. Maintaining bleached blonde hair is not an easy task but with the right products and care you hair can still be strong and healthy.  

 Here are so of my go to products that I use on a daily basis to take care of my blonde hair. This is what is currently works for me, everyone’s hair is different. Please share with me what works for you! 


For Dryness and Damage:  

 - Olaplex No. 3, $28,

This treatment helps strengthen your hair bond and prevents your hair from looking like a pile of dry straw.  



For Moisture: I normally will try to treat my hair to a hair mask at least twice a week, especially with this Miami heat, check out some of my faves below!

-it’s A 10 Miracle Hair Mask, $31,

This Miracle mask is not only for blonde hair but for dry hair in general. The name says it all, it’s a miracle! This mask has a mixture of oils that help hydrate your hair to give it a shiny, smooth & frizz free texture.  


-Moroccan Oil Restorative Hair Mask $43

I swear by this mask to give my hair an instant boost of hydration. The best feature of this product is that it’s for every type of hair. This mask is rich in Aragon oil and nourishing ingredients, it helps improve texture, elasticity and shine.



To maintain you Blonde color: 

The color of your hair will, always, look it’s best when you first dye it and a couple of days after that, the Honey Moon Phase. After a couple of washes, you may notice that your starts loosing the desired color and can turn yellowish. For this reason, you should be using  purple shampoos, to help bring out the desired color, which in my case is more ashy. A brand I love to use is: 


Tone it down shampoo $12


Tone it down Coditioner $12



I do not recommend daily use of this shampoo because purple shampoos dry your hair, instead use two to three times a week.


Favorite Hair Oils: 

 Use oils to help moisture your hair after using heat to style it. These oils will give you the perfect shine and have you looking selfie ready.

Pearl Hair Oil, $28,

This oil is perfect to use at the end of your hair. It will enrich and nourish your hair with natural oils and it will, also, protect it from UVA/UVB.


Ouai Oil, $28,

I use this oil everyday! After I blow dry my hair I put it on to give me a little shine and to smooth my dry ends. This product will make your hair look and feel silky while it hydrates, it doesn’t feel heavy, and you won’t feel like you have greasy hair at the end of the day.


- Diamond Oil, $32,

I use this product before I blow dry my hair daily. It protects the hair from the heat of my styling tools and it will major shine.  If there was one product that I had to chose to use it would be this one since it’s preventative in addition to helping giving my hair life.


 For the Buck:

Homemade hair mask that helps restore and hydrate your damaged hair:

Mom’s recipe (no joke), my mom was the one who passed this hair mask down to me.  

Eggs have the perfect nutrients that your hair needs to be healthy and olive oil has amazing moisturizing properties, while the mayonnaise gives you hair strength.

 Leave for 1-2 hours and wash your hair normally.  See recipe below:






My Experience with Hair Extensions!

As I said in my previous blog about hair extensions, I have tried many hair extension styles, clip-on, sew-in and lastly taped. So far I have had a great experience with Hair System Extensions’  taped extensions. I had it for a couple of months and my hair had never looked so amazing and natural. It’s actually a very fast procedure to put the taped extensions on and you just go to them retaped them every 2 months. The maintenance is also very easy, just wash it normally. I recommend to use Siu Tse Shampoo and Conditioner treatment with Argan oil so you can preserve a silky glow to your hair.

Hair System Extensions Experience


More than having my hair long I was I need of getting volume since my hair is so thin. That's why I decided to try one more time hair extensions! I have used hair extensions since I was seventeen, believe me, i have tried it all. First, i tried the version where they braid your hair and sew you the extension, yes you read well they "sew it to your head" but don't panic they sewn it just through the braid. I find this version very uncomfortable, first because of the pain the day after is horrible since the braid is so tight, you get a lot of knots down there and when you don't want it anymore I felt I lost have of my real hair when I took it off. The other version I tried was the clip extensions since I didn't want a permanent thing. I like it because you can take it on and off but at the same time throughout the day it start to hurt and you can feel it when you touch your head, how grouse. So having those experiences I decided to get the tape hair extensions and I think I took the best decision, I just can't believe how natural they look and how you can't even feel them when you are touching your hair. The brand I had applied are Hair System Extensions, they are 100% remy virgin hair and this version lasts over two months and you just go back to get retouches. Totally worth it now I have an amazing length, fuller hair, and most important natural looking hair.

Laser Hair removal with Body Details


I wanted to share with all of you my experience with Laser hair Removal at Body Details. So I did my under arms and bikini area and so far I have had amazing results. My first session was almost 6 months ago and now I'm am about to get my 5th session. I can tell you that by now I have almost no hair and no necessity to shave. It's been life changing since shaving is so annoying and so bad for your skin, especially at the bikini area. Living in a city that almost all the year is like summer you must be hair free almost everyday. My experience with Body Details has been great their staff are very professional, they have the last technology and the best thing is that they provide you with a lifetime garantee that if any time one sneaky hair decides to grow out they will take care of it! In terms of pain the first two sessions are a little painful since the hairs are thicker but Throughout 3-4 session you almost feel no pain since the hair starts getting weaker and weaker. This experience is totally worth it and I don't understand how I didn't do it sooner!


How to get a perfect Blonde Hair


So let's talk about hair. I been dying my hair Blonde since a very young age and I can not imagine myself having other hair color, believe me I have try darker colors and always end up back to blonde. From personal experience is very difficult to find a hairstylist that does the blonde I like, I been to a million salons and as much as you explain how I want it "PLATNIUM BLONDE" they ended giving me orange or yellow hair. Who wants to have orange or yellow hair? Right? I have lived in Miami for almost five years already and the only person that I fully trust and know that I'm gonna get a perfect hair is to Adrian, a professional hairstylist and balayage specialist who is been in the industry for more than 8 years.

-Tell us about the Balayage technique?

 "Balayage is a customized, hand-painted, sun-kissed look is a coloring technique utilized to create naturally highlighted appearance the technique creates great depth and dimension."

What's particularly attractive with this style is the out-growth. You don't have a dramatic line of demarcation when your hair grows out !!

"Balayage is omid, hand-painted sun-kissed look – a coloring technique utilized to create naturally highlighted appearance. The technique creates great depth and dimension. You have don throughout the hair, as posed to dimension just oann the tips of hairansch is common with anmb."

-What is Olaplex?

"Olaplex is a hair treatment that lights your hair without causing damage to it. This product is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, gluten and is never tested on animal hair treatment. Olaplex reconnects broken disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair. Hair bonds are broken during thermal, mechanical and chemical services."

"Olaplex can be used as a reset button for your hair and by doing so allows you to rebuild the strength, structure and integrity to the point where a color or chemical service would then be feasible once again. This treatment may be done before and/or after a chemical service and may be applied in the salon once a week or more. Compatible with all hair types from virgin to extremely compromised chemically treated hair."

 -How I can take care of my hair after to keep the color and hair healthy?

"After a color service Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector is what you need to keep your hair healthy, Olaplex n.3 contains the same active ingredient as both the No.1 and No. 2. This enablesto repair and maintain strong, healthy hair in between services as it continues to link bonds within the hair."

-How long should you wait to do it again?

"Typically, you can go up to two to for months between treatments, because your hair will blend with your natural look but it depends on where you are starting and where you want to end up . The need to color less often is a big part of what makes this technique so popular. The only scenario that is challenging is if you are dark Brunette and you want a very light ombre’d ends, you just have to take your time in getting there in stages. Even then, it's not any more damaging, you just have to do it right and have a stylist that is knowledgable and trustworthy and is willing to tell you the truth.. that 1you can't have the end result immediately, at least not without risking damaging the health of your hair."

Why Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant is an essential upgrade to your daily beauty routine!


With summer coming up around the corner we have to be prepared to take good care of our skin!   One body area that is most affected by these climate changes is our underarms! Okay, how many of you really takes good care of this specific area? Not many right? Well, I'm sure that a lot of you feel uncomfortable and less confident when you have wetness, odors or rough skin under your arms but like most things in life, there's a solution.

Last week Simply Stylist invited me to Dove event at the Barba Skin Clinic in Miami. It was a great experience where I learned that you can not take for granted the skin under your arms & pampering this area is a must. Now with Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant, I can feel fresh, confident & comfortable since I don't need to worry anymore about sweaty underarms. My favorite thing about this deodorant is that it offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection, and also has skin benefits due to its NutriumMoisture formula that leaves your underarms feeling smooth and soft. The best part is that it helps with the color tone of your skin In that area! I know that a lot of people like me shave their underarms and this can cause your skin to be dry and dark. That's why I think that Dove Advanced Care just fits perfectly to my daily beauty routine. So what are you waiting for to make the #EssentialUpgrade? Don't run out of time, summer is almost here!
