On Washing My Hair

on washing my hairOn washing my hair… Who washes their hair every day? No, just me? How come I didn’t know this as a child, that you’re not supposed to wash your hair every day? Where was I on that day in school when they talked about that topic in general hygiene class; on washing my hair?

I am nearly 51-years old and I only recently found out that I am not supposed to wash my hair every single day. What? It was about two years ago when I started working retail in the cosmetics section of a department store when I discovered this information.

Purple Shampoo

Cost Cutter's Silver Shine Shampoo
Since becoming a blonde it was recommended to me to use a purple shampoo to help cut down on the brassy yellowness that can easily happen when you have processed hair. I don’t know if any ole purple shampoo will do but I am swearing by my Cost Cutters brand called Silver Shine.

I love my platinum and extremely short hair. I even want to go a little more silver-ish than blonde in the future and we (my hairdresser and I) are working towards that goal. I’ve learned that it takes time, it is a process. Google Pink’s silver hair in images and you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Anyway, in the meantime, I am having to hold down the gold and yellow the best I can in between appointments with my hair stylist. My stylist told me to use Cost Cutter’s Silver Shine. I was of course skeptical in the beginning but I was willing to try anything. I am after all a product junkie.

Oh my goodness gracious! This purple shampoo is awesome and I would pay for it in gold and silver if I had to. I am not a chemist but whatever is in this shampoo definitely works, the shampoo does what it says it will do. It helps neutralize brassy and yellow tones on gray and blonde hair. Brightens and provides moisture for gray and color-treated hair.

No more brassy yellow trying to creep its way back while I am in between appointments. I pay $16.95 for a 33.8 fl oz bottle and I swear it lasts for 3 to 5 months. Since I have short short hair I don’t need a lot of shampoo. Yes, I do normally shampoo twice a day. I can’t help it, I just do. But I only really need one pump from the bottle but seeing as how I am a strong believer of “more is more” I normally pump out 2 to 3 small dollops.

The Silver Shine shampoo by Cost Cutters is one of my must-haves. As long as I remain a blonde I will not use any other shampoo. Period.

This is not the first time I’ve written about Cost Cutters.
