I recently colored my hair. It’s a lavender-slash-silver. My daughter asked me to do it, so I did. This change of color and all the maintenance is something new to me. Last July, I wanted to give my hair a break. I took all my extensions out for the first time in 10 years and for seven months I was rocking only leave-in conditioner and a slick back. I was giving my hair a chance to breathe because I do a lot to it. I color it and I do a Brazilian treatment. So I went from nothing to this color. It was a big jump.
With colored hair there are a lot of rules I’m learning. I just switched to this new natural shampoo by Davines, and I use a color conditioner that my hair colorist, Danny Moon, who works at Andy Lecompte salon, makes for me. He mixes up a combination of conditioner and color so that it deposits a little color each time.
Andy cuts my hair, and has since I was 19. He’s, coincidentally, one of my best friends. We’re around the same age and started out, in a way, at the same time. Because I’m his friend, he can experiment with me. Every major haircut I’ve had is one that he’s done. My attitude with beauty and hair is that it’s temporary: you can always change it. It’s how I feel about fashion as a whole. It’s fun to see Andy and experiment and do it for over 10 years. Danny is also great and crazy-looking; his hair is like a clown’s with so many colors. Danny colors Joel’s hair, too. He also gave my son a mohawk and gives my daughter hair chalk to play with.
