I think Katy perry might be my hair spirit animal. Wigs or the real thing, she's always got something fun going on up top. If I could be constantly whipping my hair into a new style, color, and cut every day (or even multiple times a day) I totally would. 

I'm not on Katy's level, but I try to change my style up at least fairly often to keep things interesting. I kept my hair my natural dark brown color for our wedding, just because I didn't want to make any rash hairstyle decisions that I would look at in wedding photos 20 years from now and regret.

Once wedding day was over, I decided it was time for a new lighter summer style. My hair is pretty dark, so it takes a few sessions to get it light. I'm not quite done yet, but I'm showing off a little before and after to show you the progress, sharing a few favorite products that I'm using to keep my looks silky and soft, and spreading the love a little with a hair mask giveaway.

CURRENT HAIR PRODUCT FAVORITES

Let's talk about these awesome products from Hask that are currently in my shower, then we'll get to the giveaway and big reveal of my new look.

1. Orchid & White Truffle Shampoo & Conditioner 

Between the dry Denver climate and my newly-added blonde, my hair needs all the moisture I can get. This duo is extra rich and free of most all of the bad stuff (sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten, drying alcohol and artificial colors). I did notice some added shine to my locks compared to the shampoo and conditioner I had been using.
 
Oh, and it also smells super good, and if you're anything like me, a lovely smell is near the top of the list as far as deciding which hair products to buy.
 
 

2. Coconut Milk & Organic Honey Hair Mask 

I've never really been that into hair masks...until now. My first experience with them was after moving to Colorado and getting some first hand experience with how a dry climate really can suck the moisture right out of my hair. I used to complain about my hair being a ball of frizz in the southern humidity, but in Denver it's totally bleh...aka dry and flat. I'd take the crazy volume from the humidity any day.
 
This mask is one of the first things I've tried that gives my hair lasting softness even after it's totally dry from the shower. I've been on a little bit of a pre-summer coconut kick lately, so this mask was a great fit for my routine. It's actually something I can use daily since my hair gets SO dry. Although, for friends with healthier locks, this would probably work best for using 1-3 times a week.
 
 

3. Blue Chamomile with Argon Oil Blonde Hair Mask 

My one tip with hair masks would be not to use the same one every time. My favorite (above) is one I use daily, then add this blue chamomile one into the rotation about once or twice a week.
 
It's formulated just for blonde, to neutralize brassy and yellow tones. The mask also has argon oil to help moisturize hair that might be dry or brittle due to lightening. They also have a shampoo and conditioner from this formula line available as well.

MY NEW LIGHTER LOOK

Disclosures: (1) It's not totally done: I'm still going to go lighter & it needs a cut...like real bad (2) You can't really get a feel for how awesome it looks IRL, because of these iPhone pics, but you can go creep on my insta story to see it in motion or stay tuned for some upcoming posts to see some better photos.
 
My stylist was Gaby from the ZenSalon in Denver and she was so much fun. I gave her a huge arm workout with all my hair, but she did an amazing job. I can't wait to go back and let her finish her work to make it perfect. 
 
Without further adieu, here is the before, during, and after:
