How To: Spring Hair Color And Quick Curls

Y'all, I am so excited about today's post, because I've got a little hair makeover for you! Since spring is on the way, I thought it was time to freshen up my hair. I've had really dark hair for the past couple of years, so I decided to lighten things up and show how I quickly curl my hair. Have you thought about changing your hair for spring? It's so easy, thanks to  Schwarzkopf Keratin Color.

I chose Schwarzkopf Keratin Color--isn't it pretty? This is Intense Cocoa 4.6.

I purchased mine at Walmart. So why did I choose this one?

I chose the Keratin Color because it offers 100% gray coverage. I went gray in my 20s (thanks genetics) so to find something that actually covers my gray is a miracle. I really love the pre-treatment step in this for an even color result.

Let's get into a little before and after. Here's a before.

And here's my after! I love how the Schwarzkopf Keratin Color gives me less hair breakage too. The color is so intense and gorgeous. Plus, the kit was easy to use! But back to the less hair breakage: that's a must since I curl my hair. Speaking of, here's how I get my quick curls:

You'll need--
1.5 in curling iron
brush or comb
texturizing spray

I like to comb or brush my hair and separate it in half. And then I like to grab about 1 inch sections and work from the back to the front. I'm showing the sides because it was easier to take a pic of.  

For the first section, flip the curling iron so the barrel is facing up and the clip is at the bottom, as shown above.

I like to leave the tail of the section out and clamp and roll the iron to my roots. I hold mine for 10 seconds. Release curl and let cool.

For the next section of hair, make sure the curling iron clip is up--the opposite of how you did it before. This will make the curl go away from your face. Repeat the step of 10 seconds for heat.

See how the curls look and how they are opposite of each other? This assures that your curls will stay separated. 

Once curls have cooled, I like to separate them with my fingers to break up the curls and lightly mist them and scrunch with a texturizing spray. It makes them a little messier, which I love!

And now, my hair is ready for spring! To try out Schwarzkopf Keratin Color for yourself, click here!

  16. Your hair looks really nice with a golden hue to it.

  18. I have a lot of grays (damn genetics) so color my hair regularly at home.
    I have naturally wavy hair so I'm more of a straightner girl than a curls girl

  19. I love how your hair turned out! Super pretty Elle, and I love how it looks curled too. I miss coloring my hair!

  20. Thanks for sharing - your hair looks great! I have natural curls, but I also get a lot of frizz so I mostly just have to manage it. haha


  21. I love Schwarzkopf products! My mom is actually a wholesaler for them so I get all sorts of free hair products. Your hair looks fab with the fresh color and loose curls!

  22. I have grays too and while I don't have to dye my hair to hide them just yet, I know that day is coming. Genetics is on my side too, dang it! These pics are so pretty and I'm glad to know about this stuff

  23. Your hair looks great! I wish I could color mine at home but being a blonde is so high maintenance!

  24. Love the color! Your hair looks so pretty :)

  25. I wish my hair curled so easily - never found the perfect curling tong yet. Your new hair colour looks lovely too, you picked a great shade!

    Hope you are having a great start to the week!
