How To Refresh Your Hair Colour Between Salon Appointments
2023 has already been deemed the year to have fun with your hair colour. We are seeing more experimenting with a variety of hues — natural and vivid — to create a more playful finish than in past seasons. If you already colour your hair, you know how amazing it feels the moment you step out of the salon. There’s an extra spring in your step as you snap selfies of your new ‘do, and suddenly even grabbing coffee feels glamorous. The thing about dyeing your hair is that no matter the shade, there is a fair amount of upkeep required. Fear not; we’ve got a few tips and a must-have product pick to help you on your hair colour journey.
From highlights to global colour, balayage, or gloss treatments — anytime you colour your hair, you’ve got to think about the upkeep that goes along with it. It requires regular root touch-ups and glossing treatments to keep colour looking its best between appointments and, more than anything, home care.
Home Care Tips for Coloured Hair
Turn Down the Temps
Hot water and heat styling are two of the main culprits when it comes to colour fade. Anytime you wash your hair with hot water, the cuticle is opened, and hair dye can start to escape. If cold showers are out of the question, think about turning your temperature down slightly or even adding a cool rinse before getting out.
When it comes to heat styling, excess heat without proper protection can damage the hair, raise the cuticle and lead to a lacklustre appearance. We’re not saying to give up heat styling completely, but be choosy with when you style and consider air drying in between.
Use a Sulfate-Free Shampoo
Each time you shampoo, it is vital to use a formula that gently cleanses the hair to wash away impurities without compromising your colour. Use a sulfate-free formula, like Aloxxi Hydrating Shampoo, Essential 7 Oil Cleansing Oil Shampoo. Or opt for Aloxxi Instaboost® Conditioning Color Shampoo when you want to add golden tones while nourishing, protecting and infusing the strands with colour and shine thanks to Aloxxi’s CDP Complex®. This shampoo is also the perfect prep for Aloxxi Instaboost® Conditioning Color Masques.
