PROTECT YOUR HAIR COLOUR WITH THE ULTIMATE HOME CARE.
24 September 2019 Maria Ardino
Coloured hair will look its best when cared for properly. Think of the time you spend at home looking after coloured hair as protecting your investment!
I have always said I’m into the simplicity of home care. Let’s look at a few products to ensure your colour grows out beautifully.
Darker tones are best enhanced with protection and hydration. We love the Pureology Hydrate range with AntiFade®Complex.
Pureology Hydrate Superfood Treatment is 5-minutes of high-quality investment time for colour-treated hair. Formulated with essential oils and nutrients, this treatment nourishes and moisturises while strengthening the surface of the hair. The aromatherapy blend of orange, citrus, pineapple and leafy green smells fabulous.
The Superfood recipe is created with colour-treated hair in mind and works to create a smooth, shiny and frizz-free look and feel.
We recommend using it at least fortnightly – weekly if you can!
Warm copper tones and red gradients bring beautiful depth and life to hair. We love these shades especially as we have two natural redheads in the salon! We recently transformed a client’s hair from black to lush warm copper and recommend home care with La biosthetique Glam Colour Treatment.
We can recommend the best treatment for your colour such as .40 Copper, .21 Espresso or .50 Red. These three shades in particular have been given a pigment booster by La biosthetique for even longer colour vibrance.
Glam Colour uses micro-pigments that anchor deep into the hair shaft for brilliant shine and toning that goes the extra mile.
FOR LIGHTENED, HIGHLIGHTED AND BALAYAGED HAIR
Blonde and highlighted hair needs strength and toning.
I love and recommend Pureology Strength Cure Best Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner, designed for all shades of colour-treated blonde, highlighted and lightened hair.
The shampoo is sulphate-free yet still super creamy. Violet-toning properties neutralise and brighten ashy, brassy tones and refresh yellow tones. It is designed to strengthen and prevent dryness and breakage, adding shine and moisture to hair.
After completing a patch test, I recommend using this every wash, followed by Pureology Strength Cure Best Blonde Conditioner.
Try to invest in the recommended leave-in time at least weekly – lightened hair needs time and love - you need to be committed.
Another favourite is Pureology Strength Cure Best Blonde Miracle Filler Treatment.
This 1-2 minute treatment is 100% vegan and is designed to heal and restore cuticles on all shades of lightened, highlighted or balayaged hair.
With continued daily use, it provides increased strength and softness, whilst protecting against heat and styling damage.
For super dry hair I get my clients to use the masques every time you wash your hair!
For platinum blonde, I recommend La biosthetique Glam Colour .07 Crystal Treatment.
Use after washing to reduce yellow reflections.
The processing time is between 3 and 10 minutes – depending on the tone and condition of your hair.
Again – think of this time as an investment!
We can help to recommend the correct length of time suited to your hair.
