Carlos Vera & Clairol Natural Instincts

Do you know about your hair? How much do you know about your hair? I was invited to learn from a celebrity stylist about hair, especially my hair, hair color, and what's in for this holiday season.

I learned about Clairol Natural Instincts and how it can help you and me transform our looks this Holiday season. Celebrity stylist Carlos Vera, who is currently Thalia’s hairstylist and has worked with celebrities such as Kim Kardashian and Shakira, gave us tips on our hair, shared stories, and talked to us about hair color.

-When dying your hair. Make sure you wash your hair first.
-Only dye your hair, 2 shades lighter than your own for a more natural look.
-Air dry is better than blow dry.
-For the fall, go natural with your natural color or close to it.
-Stop using gel, I was a culprit of this but luckily I have stopped.
-Wash your hair at least every 2 to 3 days, so you don't dry it out.

He even checked out my hair and gave me a one on one.

-I dyed my hair for my bestfriend's wedding like 2 weeks ago. Carlos was able to tell me it was a bad job. I actually have 2 colors in my hair. It doesn't look natural. It has dried my hair out.
-He also showed me how to wear my hair. Swoop to the left, or swoop the right, split in the middle.
-He also told me to wear my curls without adding product to it.
-To help my dried out hair after shampooing, conditioning, air drying, get a small amount in my hands of conditioner and add it to my hair for extra moisture, and conditioning throughout the day.

The evening was so nice getting all the secrets from a celebrity stylist.

***Disclosure-No compensation was received. I was invited to this private event to meet & greet, listen to product knowledge, and I received a Clairol cape, and coupon for Clairol Natural Instincts.
