TIPS ON HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR COLOURED HAIR

Keeping your colour looking great for as long as possible and ensuring your hair feels healthy and looks glossy requires a little TLC 

WASH HAIR LESS OFTEN

It may sound obvious, but the more you wash your hair, the quicker colour molecules will fade. Whenever hair gets wet, each individual strand swells and a small amount of colour pigment seeps out, which is why extending the washing cycle is a must to keep hair looking fresh. 

HOW TO CARE FOR BLONDE HAIR COLOUR

Whether you’ve gone for a rich caramel blonde or ice white blonde, use blonde shampoo and conditioners, their Violet-tinted, colour-enhancing formula brings out the best in blonde, white and silver hair banishing any brassiness whilst adding shine. Our Forever blonde products also help to replenish moisture, repair damage and seal the cuticle.

HOW TO CARE FOR BROWN/RED HAIR COLOUR

Over-processed coloured hair can often appear dull a few weeks after a salon visit due to daily washing and environmental aggressors. Add an extra glow to rich brunettes and classic dark shades with a glossing treatment in between colour visits to add shine and refresh your colour. Our colour protect shampoo cleanses colour-treated hair while it moisturizes, protects against UV, strengthens and boosts shine and the conditioner protects hair from sun damage, detangles and smooths colour-treated hair, so locks look and feel soft and hydrated.

APPLY A WEEKLY HAIR TREATMENT

The key to maintaining even, glowing hair colour starts with well-conditioned, nourished locks. Like using a weekly treatment in a skincare regimen, hair masks and conditioners are essential for keeping your  locks healthy and its colour vibrant. After washing with your colour protect shampoo and conditioner.use a deeper conditioning treatment once a week. Our colour protect treatment repairs, conditions and hydrates colour-treated hair, and helps prevent damage and split ends. Sunflower extract intensely shields hair from the sun, while conditioning extracts leave locks hydrated and shiny.

HAVE REGULAR TRIMS

To achieve the most even-toned, healthy-looking colour possible, book in for regular trims alongside your colour appointments. Split ends create a dry, sensitised base for hair dye, meaning the colour may not absorb into hair properly or penetrate deep enough. Keeping ends freshly trimmed means a healthier hair base for your shade of the moment. 

BE GENTLE WITH HEAT

When it comes to heat, be gentle on your hair. Whether blow drying, curling or straightening, heat can cause hair to become sensitised, resulting in a dry, unmanageable texture. In terms of hair colour, this can leave colour looking flat and dull, as colour always looks at its best on shiny, healthy hair. Heat protectant spray will safe-guard hair from heat. 

PREP FOR COLOUR

Get ready for your next appointment. Use a clarifying shampoo a few days before heading to the salon to remove all residue ahead of your next colour treatment. We’d recommend to not wash your hair the day of the appointment, as natural sebum oils will help to protect the scalp during the colouring process

OPT FOR OLAPLEX
