Posted by Rachael Wheeler in Hair
As a Beauty Editor I am often treated like a dermatologist/hair stylist/colourist/podiatrist etc etc by my friends, who all want to know what products I recommend to fix their latest beauty woes from tips for healthy hair to skincare and more.
A recent question that cropped up over dinner the other day was from a friend who recently got married and had a gorgeous vibrant auburn for her wedding day and only 3 weeks later the colour has already faded. There may have been a 2 week honeymoon to some exotic location filled with sun, salt water and not a care in the world to think about a hair SPF which probably accelerated matters in the fading department, but it was her honeymoon, so let’s forgive her..
Anyway, this seems to be quite an ongoing topic for those who colour their hair, especially for those who choose red tones, as they are the fastest ones to fades on the colour spectrum.
We have all been there. Fresh new colour that looks so vibrant in the salon, slowly fades, and your roots show through just two weeks later. with your roots growing out only two weeks later. However, the good news is this is not the be all and end all. There are ways to prolong the life of your hair colour, and here’s how...read on for our tips for healthy hair colour.
Blondes – Go Purple**
Purple shampoo is by far the best option to keep blonde hair, actually blonde. Because let’s face it, brass is nice on furniture, but not on hair. Neutralise brassy tones with a purple shampoo. Tigi have nailed their formula with Tigi Dumb Blonde Purple Toning Shampoo £11.30 Blondes who use this, aren’t so dumb after all...
Red Heads – Gentle Cleansers
Reds fade the fastest sadly, so it’s worth investing in a good shampoo otherwise you’ll end up paying to go the the salon more often. This salon sized beauty, Davines Alchemic Shampoo for Red Hair £49.50 deposits protein rich pigments onto hair to keep it looking fresh until your next salon visit.
Brunette – Hair Mask
Boosting a dull brunette is easy! Dark pigments can often look dull f the hair shaft isn't laying flat. So smooth your follicles with a nourishing mask and watch your colour perk right up again. Kiehl’s Sunflower Colour Preserving Deep Recover Conditioner £27.50 smells absolutly incredible and leaves hair with a rich shine. What’s not to like?
