25 Nov How to Make Your Salon Colour Last Longer
Whether it’s a sultry bronde or a fabulous fuschia, a change in hair colour can make you feel like a new person. The feeling of walking out of that salon oozing with new-found confidence is hard to replicate! If you love your new colour, you’ll want it to stick around for as long as possible, and we’ve got the tips to help you. Here’s everything you need to know to make sure your hair colour lasts longer.
1. Opt for a Natural Look
The first trick to long-lasting colour is picking the right style. If you go from blonde to brown in one block colour, you can guarantee that your roots are going to start peeping through in just a couple of weeks! But, if you use a technique that blends your natural colour with your new look, roots are going to be much less of a problem and you’ll need touchups far less frequently.
At Paollo Sagerah, we use a melted technique for our guys and gals who want low-maintenance colour. This beautifully blends your roots with the colour of your choice, using a balayage or babylight technique for a soft finish.
2. Switch Up Your Shampoo
The right shampoo is vital to maintaining vibrant, long-lasting hair colour. If you’re currently using shampoo that contains sulfates and salts, ditch it immediately! These harsh ingredients will strip the colour right out of your hair. If you can, choose a shampoo that’s gentle, nourishing, and designed for coloured hair to help your newly-dyed locks last longer.
3. Turn Down Your Water Temperature
Did you know that a hot shower can put your hair colour at risk? The heat opens up the cuticle of your hair, causing all of that gorgeous hair dye to seep straight back out. If you want your colour to last, turn down your water by a couple of degrees and keep fabulous locks for longer.
4. Keep Your Hair Nourished
Protein and moisture are two essential components of healthy hair. If your hair is lacking in either one it’s going to become damaged and dry, which can increase colour fading. So, keep your hair healthy with a weekly nourishing mask or come in for a salon treatment and your colour will thank you for it!
5. Protect Yourself From the Sun
Most of us protect our skin from sun damage, but are you protecting your hair? The sun’s rays can have a dreadful effect on coloured hair, causing it to change tone and fade faster. If you’re heading out for a day at the beach or live in a super sunny spot, make sure you apply a UV protector to your hair, wear a hat, and try to stay in the shade.
Once you know how, maintaining coloured hair really isn’t too hard. Just make sure that you’re using the right products, protect your locks from damage, and opt for a melted look for a long-lasting style!If you’re looking for an experienced hair colourist who can make sure your colour lasts, get in touch with our team at Paollo Sagerah.
