Most of us have been there, trying to keep our salon treated hair looking as fresh as the day it was done. Eventually, we realise that unless we book ourselves into the hairdressers in six weeks time, colour will fade and roots will start to make an appearance. But there’s no need to panic. Just use some of our tips to help your salon treated hair last even longer.
Make sure you do your best to preserve hair colourings
It is important to look after and use the right products for salon treated hair. If your aim is to preserve colour then the best tip we can give is not over washing hair. While we can have the urge to wash our manes every day, colour treated hair needs some extra special attention to keep the colour locked in and looking bright and beautiful.
If your colour begins to fade, then we recommend Color Wow Root Cover Up. They help to keep that salon quality hair by topping up colour to your roots. A powder rather than a dye, Color Wow’s Root Cover Up doesn’t contain any peroxides – which is heaven for hair that is dyed regularly as it means no nasty chemicals will break regrowth or damage the root.
We love that the powder clings to your hair without being sticky, oily or making it look dry (like we all know dry shampoo often can). With water-resistant qualities, the powder won’t run when you shower and it will last from wash to wash.
Overusing heat to style hair can reduce the life of salon cuts and treatments
Salon treatments aren’t just restricted to colouring. If it’s a new length or texture you’ve opted for then it is equally as important to keep it looking fresh. If you are prone to heat styling your hair, then drop the straightener, curling tong or heated brush now. When hair has been newly cut, it doesn’t want to be over-styled with heat, as it will cause your ends to split and your hair to become more flyaway and unmanageable.
Yes, there are some of us who need to use heat, but it is important to give yourself some days off. Instead, use sprays to hold style, and maintain with gentle brushing to get rid of those damaged hairs and to help your style remain for longer.
Making your salon treatments last longer shouldn’t be a chore, if you follow these simple ideas then keeping your treated hair looking as stylish as the day it was done will be easy.
