If you happen to have any left over champagne and you’re looking to boost a little life back into your highlighted or dyed curls, consider adding a little bubbly to your strands!
The secret to brighter blonde is in a champagne rinse! The effervescence helps to plump the hair strand to give volume, promote shine and most importantly, boost those golden tones! The only downside, this rinse does dry out the hair a tad so following up with a conditioner is a MUST! ALSO, big tip to consider before doing this rinse. I chose to use a spray bottle for convenience, because – you know – dropping a champagne bottle in the shower, accidentally stepping on it and slipping to your death is frowned upon. Also, letting the spray bottle sit under warm or hot water helps to “dechill” the champs. Spraying chilled champagne onto your hair and letting it land on your body is enough to make you want to unsubscribe on account of you thinking I was just trying to torture you. I promise I’m not, and I’m warning you now… dechill that champs!
Here’s all you have to do:
- Wash those curls as you normally would. A simple co-wash should suffice to avoid further stripping curls of moisture when washing. The added moisture helps with the next step
- Pour (or spray) champagne onto the areas of your hair that are light. If you have a whole head of blonde, get to dumping! If you only have highlights on your ends like I do, just focus on those areas! Carefully comb the curls that have been doused in champs and leave it in for no longer than 5 minutes.
- Rinse the champagne from your hair and follow with a conditioner or deep conditioner of your choice. I would not recommend skipping this step as like I mentioned above, the alcohol could dry the curls.
That’s basically all you have to do! Check out the video below if you want a more in depth tutorial! Let me know if you have ever tried a champagne rinse on your curls. I’m excited to share more DIY hair tips!
