September Blog: 5 Rules for Perfect Haircolor Once You Leave the Salon

Updated: Oct 24, 2018

I spend my days giving my clients lustrous beautiful multi-dimensional color. One thing I enjoy is educating them, on how to care for their new haircolor once they leave my chair. Check out my 5 tricks you should know to have great haircolor.

1 Get creative to disguise roots.

Change or part, or use one of the popular over the counter roots sprays. I'm a big fan of these sprays because they don't break the bank (usually under $10), and you can keep on in your purse car or at work.

2 Don't over highlight.

The reason for highlights, is to add dimension to your hair, so your face looks younger & brighter. If you get too many, you're back to an all over blonde look - one single color. Sometimes this can leave you looking washed out.

3 Shampoo once or twice a week.

Collective gasp! I know, you're saying, I couldn't possibly do this. Yes you can, if it meant more moisturized hair & longer lasting color right? Washing too often strips our hair of it's natural oils, leaving hair dry & limp. Opt for a side ponytail with some dry shampoo on day three or four. I promise, you'll get used to it.

4 Go opposite your skin tone.

Gold can be a bad idea if you have pinkish skin...the gold will bring out more of the pink. Try a cool icey blonde instead. For us olive toned women, ash can makes up look washed out. Opt for warm, sandy honey tones instead.

5 Don't overdo the protein hair treatments.

Hair masques can add moisture & shine, but because of the high amount of protein in many of the masque/treatments, you can over do it and dry out your hair. Once or twice a month is enough.
