ALL THINGS HAIR, AUTHENTICITY + BEING A NICE PERSON
with justin anderson
BOY WAS THIS A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED EPISODE.
And it certainly delivered.
Today on the podcast we have the one and only JUSTIN ANDERSON.
I’m sure you know his name (if you don’t, follow him IMMEDIATELY), but Justin is the BEST of the BEST in the hair world. As one of the most coveted celebrity hair colorists in Hollywood, he is the wizard behind our favorite blondes – I’m talking Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Kristin Cavallari, Gwyneth Paltrow…I could go on, but we’d be here all night.
From the moment he walked into the studio to record this conversation, he was just a huge ray of sunshine. And this conversation is sure to put a smile on your face and a pep in your step today.
In our conversation, we cover A LOT:
- How the heck is he always this happy!
- How to keep our blondes BRIGHT (yes, he’s spilling all the secrets)
- When he told his parents he was gay
- His dpHue brand + products that continues to grow
- His empathetic approach to cyber bullying
Justin is literally everything you could ask for and more. If you’re a blonde – you’ll really want to tune into this episode. If you’re looking for a way to make the world a better place – you’ll want to tune into this episode. Basically, you’re going to want to tune into this episode.

How are you so enthusiastic in the morning! Tell us your secrets!
I’m up at 4:00 AM, with no alarm! I’d love for it to be 5AM, but it’s always 4! Music is so important to me, and I feel like that’s the best way to start your day. If you pick a song and you blast it in your car, first thing – it sets the tone for your day.
How do you get through a hard day?
I have conversations in my head where I’m like, ‘If you stress out about that, then you’re going to start stressing about this.‘ Then your day is going to go down that path. What is the purpose?
And I really talk to myself. I’m like, ‘You have so many things to be grateful for’ and get into the gym and sweat. You feel better after. I do believe that we are all in control of what our day looks like.
We all come from different backgrounds. I know that there are problems that happen in life. And let me tell you, I have my issues that have been in my life, but I am good at facing them head on – having conversations about them. I love talking to people, so if I have a problem with somebody in my life, I will call them immediately.
Tell us about your Apple Cider Vinegar mix in the morning!
Here is the typical mix I make in the mornings!
- Heavy splash of ACV
- 1 whole lemon squeeze
- Bunch of water
- cayenne pepper
So wake up, not have anything yet and get that down really quick.
How do we get the brassiness out of our blonde color?
We just launched the Brightening Powder and it is amazing. You use that in the shower and it pulls hard water out of your hair. And then you could treat your hair with like a purple shampoo if you want.
If you want to get that yellow out of your hair, put the purple shampoo on your hair on Friday, then by Sunday, your hair will be perfect color. Just let your hair be ashy for a day or two in between.
Can we do anything for postpartum hair loss?
This is something I don’t feel like is talked about enough! When it starts to shed, just let it shed. It WILL come back. I do believe in Biotin pills and collagen.
And when your scalp is really tight or you have a lot of product buildup on your scalp, it’s clogging your pores and your hair is not growing as good. So I really believe in people using my ACV Scrub on the scalp. You scrub your scalp once a week and hands down – I think that everyone should do that. Even if you don’t think you need to, we don’t realize what waking up your scalp does. Like your hair grows in thicker.
How often should we wash our hair?
I think people should wash their hair once a week.I think that people over wash their hair in general. I think that’s why everyone has crappy, dry hair.
And then I work out every day and I sweat. So I use my ACV rinse. It’s a rinse – a shampoo substitute – use that as much as you can. And then whenever you need that deep clean that you just want, we all love that one shampoo night where your hair smells fabulous. It feels really clean. Do it once a week, you know?
Can brunettes use your products?
My products cover all colors, so we have red hair, black, we have brunette colors and they all come in different shades in the products that are color specific. Yes, we have every, all the different colors. I just talk about blonde so much because I’m blonde.
