Earlier this year, I did something bold, and I chopped all my hair off. I’ve felt so liberated since doing that. And, my haircare routine has been the easiest its been my entire life. I have a standing appointment with my barber every 2 weeks to keep my fade fresh. I’ve been slightly tweaking my cut every few weeks. This fall, though, I wanted to do something a little bit bolder. My hair color has been looking a tad dull, so I wanted a refresh. Given how quickly my hair grows and hence changes, I wanted a color routine I could easily maintain at home. So, I took 5 easy steps and got my fresh hair color, y’all!

Step 1. I visited the hair color aisle at Walmart and picked up the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime system.

I was drawn to the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime system because of its selection of vibrant, fashion shades. The colors are rich, perfect-for-any-season hues. I love browns and reddish browns, so I debated a few color options (Mahogany Red, Cocoa Red, and Velvet Brown) before deciding on Velvet Brown. Since I wash my hair so often, it was important that I chose a color system that resisted fading. And, the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime system promises to defy fading for up to 9 weeks!

Step 2. Once I purchased my color, the next important step was to closely read the instructions. Of course, I wanted to be safe and to achieve optimal results. And, I’m so here for the simple instructions included, complete with images.

Step 3. Once application day arrived, I put on my gloves (included in the box), and I blended the color cream with the developer lotion. I sound like a pro, don’t I? Actually, the instructions leaflet included in the box makes this entire process so easy. And, everything I needed was included in that box.

Step 4. The next step was to apply the color. As you know, I have dense, coily hair. So, it was crucial that I made sure to apply the color evenly along every strand. Of course, with curly hair that can be a chore, but it’s totally worth it.

Step 5. After waiting 30 minutes for the color to work its magic on my hair, I simply rinsed the color, shampooed, and then applied the Schwarzkopf Color Ultime Conditioning Treatment.

And, that’s it! With 5 easy steps, my dull hair got a color refresh. It’s amazing how simply adding color makes my hair appear so vibrant. With curly hair, it’s hard to see shine, but this fresh hair color has given my hair a beautiful vibrance.
