As a society and as a salon, we love hair color! Light, dark, rainbow: we love it all! There are unfortunate realities when it comes to color though. At the end of the day, you are putting strong chemicals on your hair and altering it on a molecular level. As intimidating as that may sound, color doesn’t have to be a scary or damaging process. There are several guidelines you can abide by if you color your hair to protect it and keep it as healthy as possible.
Regular hair cuts! Trimming your hair on a regular schedule will help prevent breakage on your ends and prevent breakage from moving up your hair strands. 6 – 8 weeks is recommended.
Cool water! Rinsing your hair with cool to cold water will preserve your color longer and will be more gentile on your hair. Hot water opens your hair’s cuticle letting your color fall out and making your hair more susceptible to breakage.
Color safe shampoo and conditioner! Using the right products will go a long way with your hair. We provide color safe shampoos and conditioners during your service and we have several options available for retail from Neuma and Pulp Riot.
Conditioning mask! Last but certainly not least, we recommend during your color service to also receive a conditioning mask. It’s as simple as sitting for an additional 5- 10 minutes at the shampoo bowl! You can also add a conditioning treatment onto a hair cut appointment or even a blowout appointment. For this service we use Oligo Blacklight Intensive Replenishing Mask. Specifically designed for color treated hair, this strengthening mask uses the power of argan oil and 11 amino acids to moisturize and repair while also increasing shine and color retention. It will bring life back into your hair! Love it and can’t get enough? Not only is this mask available for purchase but it is also our March product of the month! Buy this mask during the month of March and receive 10% off!
You love your colored hair, so act like it! We want to help you have your dream hair so book a conditioning treatment asap! You can do so by calling, email, or the Book Now tab above.
