I have what you might call a tricky relationship with conditioner. With fine hair that tends to get weighed down and greasy easily, I am inclined to avoid it. But unfortunately for me, I also like to get my deep brown mane highlighted every 5 months or so. And the consequence of this vanity is not just the necessity to keep my hair hydrated and protected from damage, but also to preserve my not-too-warm-not-too-cool highlights the way I want them to look, which is decidedly not orange.

The problem: oxidization, hot showers, and just plain old time can cause my hair to go a little brassy. I'd rather not have to ask my friends and loved ones, "be honest... does my hair look orange to you." I know the answer and yet my feelings are inevitably hurt when they respond with the truth. But it turns out, I've had the fix for this problem sitting in my shower for a while. Leonor Greyl Paris Soin Repigmentant Color-Enhancing and Nourishing Conditioner—it's neither a purple-toning shampoo/conditioner, nor is it a heavy duty treatment. It's the perfect hybrid of what my hair needs to stay healthy, with minimal damage and a flattering hue.

This not-too-heavy-but-just-moisturizing-enough formulation consists of a blend of meadowfoam seed oil, babassu butter, and rice proteins to yes, keep my strands from feeling like straw, and perhaps just as important, hold onto color more effectively. This means, that the pigment in the treatment is actually absorbed by my highlights, so they stay dark blonde/light brown. It's like getting my highlights regularly toned from the comfort of my bathroom.

And while this product won't cover any stray grays or stain my shower or skin (crucial, TBH), it does ensure that I can keep my color pristine if I regularly treat my hair with it every three washes. It just works and gives me one less thing to think about. I'll never go without it.
