Her specialty is the full range of saturated color work, from mermaids to blondes and everyone in between. But hair color health can be a challenge. So what is her secret?

Hair Color Health Tips From Stylist Kenzie Fear
1. Hold off on the heat.
It’s always good to regulate how much heat that hair is exposed to, whether it’s been colored or not. Kenzie recommends: “Remember with blonde hair, do not use your thermal tools on the highest settings — Always, always always use a thermal protectant, and keep the heat on low-medium settings.”
“Here’s one of my favorite ways to wear my hair when I give my hair a break from heat. Using my @agaveoil to smooth my hair and add shine.”

But having healthy hair doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it! Known for her whimsical cuts, colors, and styling, Kenzie brings a fresh glow to her clients through her color work and her personal joy and enthusiasm. From dainty pixie cuts to cascading extensions, Kenzie brings a diverse knowledge and passion for the craft to the table! She’s also a big fan of our Agave Healing Vapor Iron (It’s a 2-in-1 hot tool that conditions your hair while you use it!) Kenzie wrote: “You guys, it’s sooooo cool! You can style your hair while giving your hair a treatment at the same time. Who loves healthy hair?!”
If you do need to frequently style your hair using heat, try to use a tool that protects and heals your hair while you use it.
2. Moisturize hair well.
It’s important for any kind of treated hair to be moisturized and hydrated correctly. Achieving hair color health means incorporating a solid product or hair care practice into your routine, besides just washing it and cutting down on the heat. Kenzie recommends a hair mask that ensures thirsty, colored hair is saturated with moisture. “Do a deep conditioning treatment once ever 1-2 weeks, depending on how dry your hair is,” Kenzie says. (Check out the Agave Hair Mask — It’s out of this world.)
3. Use a plant-based hair oil.
An alternative to a moisturizing hair mask is another secret to Kenzie’s awesome hair color health: a natural, plant-based hair oil.
Organic plant extracts incorporate naturally healing effects, so there is visible softness, shine, and restoration, even after one use. Many hair oils out there are nut-based, which makes them greasy or heavy. It is important to find a hair oil that is light and ultra-absorbent, to cut down on weight and dries.
Kenzie uses Agave Healing Oil not only for her clients, but for her own hair as well. Agave Oil has a plant-based formula. She incorporates our super healing oil into her hair routine, because of how healing and hydrating it is for all hair types — colored and natural hair alike. It’s a major secret to hair color health. While other hair oils are nut-based, Agave Oil is plant-based, so it is lighter and more absorbent than any other hair oil out there.
“The Healing Oil Treatment is definitely my favorite product to use. It’s so hydrating and shiny, it makes any hair color shimmer.”
