Summer is vibrant and glowy. It kicks off a season of strappy dresses and linen everything and is often touted as everyone's favourite time of the year. As we peel off layers and spend more time in the sun, our skin isn’t the only thing that needs protection. Whether you’re planning on pool or beach days, nights out, or golden-hour hangs, vibrant hair colour needs extra care this season.
The Top Tips to Care for Vibrant Hair Colour
Start by achieving the look:
Whether you’re rocking a bold rainbow or have just touched up your platinum, all shades can benefit from a fresh salon service at the start of summer. Chat with your stylist about a plan for your summer hair colour, especially if you are choosing vibrant shades. The best way to achieve a perfect vibrant hair colour is with Aloxxi ULTRA HOT® Semi-Permanent Fashion Colour. With direct dye technology that creates a magnetic attraction, your stylist is able to achieve longer-lasting colour results and precise application.
Next, upgrade your home care routine:
It starts with the shampoo and continues with every step of your style. From cleansing to heat protection, elongate your vibrant hair colour by adding products from start to finish.
To fight colour fade, shampoo only when necessary. When you cleanse, use a gentle formula that removes buildup without stripping the hair. We love Aloxxi Essential 7 Oil Cleansing Oil Shampoo for all hair colours or Aloxxi INSTABOOST® Conditioning Color Shampoo for golden tones.
Booking consistent appointments to have your Aloxxi ULTRA HOT® tone retouched is one of the best ways to keep your colour vibrant. However, between appointments, using a colour-enhancing conditioner like Aloxxi INSTABOOST® Conditioning Color Masques can enhance and prolong your vibrant shade. With CDP Complex™ to condition, deposit and protect, this conditioning masque will add intense colour in just 3-5 minutes while also nourishing your strands. Available in 13 conditioning shades, the tones become more intense with each use and last 10-15 washes.
Whether your colour your hair or not, consistent heat styling and UV exposure can lead to dull and damaged strands. By adding heat protection before leaving the house, diffuse-drying, blow-drying or the use of hot tools, you’ll greatly cut down on colour fade and protect your cuticle layer to enhance shine.
When air-drying, we suggest applying Aloxxi Essential 7 Oil Leave-In Conditioning Cream after cleansing and conditioning. This cream will detangle and hydrate dry, unruly hair while taming frizz and reducing static and breakage for a smooth, silky finish. It also contains Aloxxi’s Colour Care Complex with anti-oxidant extracts to block UV rays.
For heat styling on damp or dry hair, Aloxxi Bombshell Volumizing Grip Styler is the ideal choice to protect against temperatures up to 450˚F while also creating show-stopping volume and body.
Extend Your Style to Prolong Your Colour:
By shampooing and styling less, you’ll effectively extend the life of your style and your colour. The easiest way to do this is by adding Aloxxi Dry Shampoo to your routine. This unique invisible dry shampoo cleanses and refreshes your hair without leaving a residue or heavy feeling — a must-have for vibrant hair colours. In addition to refreshing and conditioning the scalp, it also contains UV protectants to safeguard your colour, making it a win-win for any ULTRA HOT® shade.
