Our Top Tips For Colouring Your Hair

Try Not To Sleep With Wet Hair

Always make sure to dry your hair thoroughly before you hit the pillow. Because when hair is wet, it’s super fragile. When you sleep on wet hair, it dries unevenly, meaning it’ll be unruly and knotty come morning, causing more styling work and more damage to your hair.

Never Wash Your Hair Straight After Colouring

Give the hair at least 24 hours before shampooing and conditioning so the colour can absorb and settle in the hair. Remember your newly coloured hair is delicate, so treat it with care.

Protect Your Hair From The Sun

Sun causes damage to your hair, burns your scalp, and can mess up your color, so make sure you protect your hair in the summertime. Hats or head scarves and a sun protectant spray are all beach necessities.

Be Wary Of Fads & Trends

When it comes to finding the right hair colour for you, it’s important to consider your skin tone, eye colour and personality. Think about how high maintenance you’re prepared to go and be realistic – the more detail you can give your colourist the better.

Use A Purple Shampoo

Purple shampoos are excellent for blondes and brunettes who have highlights. It’s great to use as often as you personally feel ‘the need’. Try alternating the purple shampoo with a daily shampoo for colour treated hair, so you don’t get an ‘over toned’ appearance.

Sulphate Free Shampoo & Conditioner

It’s worth buying a good-quality shampoo and conditioner. Avoid the likes of sulphates, silicones, conditioning agents and pearlising agents in shampoos, as they can leave behind a residue which will dull the hair.

Your Hair Health Matters

Brittle hair won’t accept color the same way healthy hair does. If you’ve been skimping on your cuts, get a quick trim before you colour to trim away any damaged strands and make sure the new shade goes on evenly.
