If you are going to spend a lot of money at the salon you might as well invest in the aftercare of your hair right? I mean going to the salon isn’t cheap. I’ve been to some of the best salons in London and ALL of them advise products to help prevent hair colour from fading. Here are some of the best products and treatments for colour-treated hair that I’ve found so far – read on to find out how to keep hair colour from fading!
Have you ever noticed that your hair goes naturally warm over time (if you have had it coloured or highlighted blonde in the salon) and especially if you have had your colour-treated hair in the sun? Mine tends to go warmer as more time passes in between salon visits so have recently discovered the Kevin Murphy Sugared Angel which is a fabulous colour enhancer that you can use in between salon visits to tone down any unwanted warmth in your hair. This product can be used on colour ranging from sandy blonde to biscuit brown (my hair falls somewhere in the middle). It really works too! What it does is add beige hues to your hair (you can also use this on non-colour-treated hair as well) so you can use this alone or as a top-up for colour in-between visits to the hair dresser.
There is also Cool Angel (for an ash colour enhancing treatment) and Blonde Angel (a colour enhancing treatment for blondes). The products not only work but also look great on a shelf.
Hair looking dull and dehydrated? If you feel like summer has literally depleted your hair of its shine (that’s what has happened to mine) then I would definitely recommend trying the Kevin Murphy Crystal Angel Illuminating Gloss Colour. This adds a shiny gloss to your hair and also refreshes colour at the same time. My hair has recently gotten quite dull-looking after a series of holidays in the sun so I used this as a treatment when I came back to restore my hair to pre-sun vitality!
It’s always sad when you have to wash your salon colour-treated hair for the first time because it’s most likely that you had a blow dry with it so sometimes, it’s hard to let that go. I KNOW. Josh Wood, colour master and king has launched a Josh Wood Colour Everything Mousse that you apply on freshly-coloured hair to lock in the pigment from the get-go. It also helps to re-hydrate hair as well because we all know that the colour process can be slightly traumatic to hair, but it is getting better these days in regards to minimising damage. So, if you want to lock-in your colour this mask is your go-to. Use it weekly from when your hair was colour-treated.
I’m loving Color Wow products at the moment – I’ve been using their Bionic Tonic for some time now. The Color Wow Color Security Shampoo is perfect security for those with colour-treated hair. I mean there is no point in spending all that money at the salon if you are just literally going to rinse it down the drain right? This shampoo uses a Japanese amino-fortified complex to help prevent colour from fading, increase strength whilst at the same time cleansing gently.
Again, if you want to nuetralise any warmer tones in the hair then the Hask Blue Chamomile and Argan Blonde Care Shampoo and Conditioner is a bit of a Godsend. The colour of the formula is a deep violet so it’s no surprise that it’s going to help nuetralise any unwanted yellow hues or brassiness. It’s also hydrating and works to strengthen hair at the same time as it removes brassiness. A double win.
