Anyone who believes that "blondes have more fun" has obviously never met Ree Drummond. She's been sporting vibrant red locks her entire life—and it's safe to say she's usually having the most fun of anyone.
But there is one aspect of the bold-and-bright hair color game that's a little more serious: the upkeep. After all, it takes work to keep those scarlet strands looking, well, scarlet.
Enter Ree's favorite shampoo and conditioner, both of which help to maintain her red hair color and keep it from losing its oomph.
"I'm a natural redhead but I get a lot of help from the bottle," Ree says. "So I use Aveda's Color Conserve shampoo and conditioner, which are extra gentle to keep the color from fading."
Not only does this product pairing work to extend the life of color-treated hair, but it also maintains underlying hair health. Thanks to an infusion of plant and flower essences like organic lavender, geranium, and grapefruit, you can expect a silky-soft shine and a light, organic fragrance.
Of course, Ree does welcome a color change every now and again. Depending on the time of year, she's been known to switch things up ever so slightly with a new Amber Southern says, explaining that she gravitates toward darker reds in the winter months and lighter reds when summer rolls around.
Ree also loves using a red depositing conditioner once a week between getting her color done, like this John Frieda conditioner.
Ree even jokes in the below Instagram caption about how a compilation of her "best of" TV show episodes will showcase "various shades of copper, red, and neon orange 😂" hair.
Generally speaking, though, she never wanders too far from that telltale red hue—and we're glad about that. Like her undying love for basset hounds and Ethel Merman, it's simply, quintessentially "her."
