Maintaining Hair Colour

  • Try not to wash your hair every day, and it slowly washes out the toner that we put onto your hair, which results you to having to come back to the salon sooner then usual to get it re toned. Try and wash your hair around every 3 days, the longer you leave your hair unwashed the better as it has time to produce the natural oils in your hair. If you have oily hair and feel like you have to wash it almost every day give dry shampoo a try. 
  • Regular hair trims every 6-8 weeks maintains the healthiness of your hair and gets rid of your split ends to make your hair grow, also bleach of any kind can dry out your hair because in most cases you have to bleach your hair to get the correct result, and bleach almost always leaves your hair slightly damaged this is why haircuts are recommended.
  • Use the irons less because your hair is at the poorest stage especially after you first get your colour done, and can be damaged quite easily. Blowaving your hair instead of using irons will make a massive difference as it can be less harsh on your hair. Before using any heat equipment on your hair use a heat protector spray, this will protect the top layer of your hair from the heat from the irons/blowdryers.
  • Hair treatments produce great results. Applying treatments once a week leaving it on for 10 minutes on your coloured hair can help repair breakage & dry hair. Hydrating, reconstructing and any treatment with protein will give the best results.
  • If you find that the tone of your hair (in most cases if your blonde) starts looking brassy and don't have time to get it re toned in the salon, you can purchase a blonde shampoo from any retailer and use it on your hair just like any shampoo once a week this will help maintain the clean blonde your wanting to keep in your hair.
  • If you have really vibrant red of purple hair, there are ways you can maintain this as much as possible at home. As you may know reds and purples can fade quite quickly especially if you find you are washing your hair quite often, you can purchase a shampoo specifically for the colour of your hair which prevents the colour from fading.
  • Try and avoid swimming in chlorine water, in some cases chlorine has turned blonde hair to slight green tinge, because the chemicals are so strong it grabs on to poorest hair first. To avoid this always rinse your hair straight away after swimming. Salt water tends to strip your toner if you are blonde and can make your hair brassy, can easily be fixed by applying a toner or using blonde shampoo.
