Strawberry blonde highlights applied via foil shows that brunettes can easily go blonde(ish). You might find that when you color or highlight your hair, it becomes drier. Go for a shampoo and conditioner that moisturizes hair while keeping color vibrant, like Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose Shampoo and Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose Conditioner. Made with Amazonian Murumuru butter and Bulgarian rose petals, these hair care products smell amaze and leave your color glossy and shiny.
