Achieving the Look
Apply Conditioner to hair,
Brushing in opposite direction that the hair grows.
Press bristles firmly
against scalp, Continue for 10 mins then Rinse.
Apply conditioner to the bottom
2/3 of your hair first, wait 10 mins,
Then put it on your roots and
Rinse altogether after another 5 mins.
Always shampoo with lukewarm water. Hot water will speed up color fadage.
Use hair products
specifically designed to protect colored hair. Remember that some shampoo
products designed to add volume will actually "blow up" the cuticle
and thus cause hues to fade much faster.
Use products that are specifically
labeled as "color safe" Shampoo less often. Even permanent colors will
fade faster with frequent washings.
Limit the use of hot styling tools
as much as possible. Heat from either appliances or the sun will speed
up color loss. When possible, air dry colored strands. Wear cute headgear
when out in the sun or when swimming in a pool. Sun, surf, sand and
pool chemicals may leach out precious tones or in some cases, cause
color to fade or even worse, turn brassy or odd shades of green or orange.
Treat colored hair with tender loving care (TLC).
Use the best products
your budget can afford and remember to deep condition on a regular basis
to counteract dryness.
Resist the urge to recolor again before at least
2 weeks has passed. Remember, less is more. Keep in mind that perms or chemical
straightening procedures may cause hair colors to be altered.
SHAMPOO: Shampoo with a color
CONDITION: Apply rich conditioner to ends.
HYDRATE: Once a week apply a deep conditioning mask to hair from just
below roots to ends.
STYLE: Protect hair from blow-dryer or irons with a heat shielding spray.
If going out in the sun, apply a UV-protecting spray.
Your Blonde, Blonde
Use a clarifying shampoo once
a week to remove chlorine and hard water buildup.
(Brunettes and Redheads
should stay clear of these, sulfates can strip color)
If your hair turns
orange try a purple tone shampoo once a week, they are designed to reduce
brassiness. (Try Paul Mitchell Platinum Blonde Shampoo)
Keep Hydrated, a hair mask will help restore softness and
