The Essential Guide To Keep Your New Hair Colour Amazing!

If you want your new colour to last then your hair after-care plan is crucial....

Let’s face it – what is the point in investing in that fabulous colour if the beautiful depth and vibrancy doesn’t last ? 

When you are setting your budget for your new colour job try and also factor in the cost of post appointment care. In this article we will set out the essential after care products to keep your new colour amazing!


Day to Day Hair Routine

As your after care takes place at home we have selected products that are easy to use and you can fit into your normal hair routine.

An easy win to prolong your colour is to make sure your day to day shampoo & conditioner is not stripping all the goodness away – try and go for an anti-fade brand and there is no better than Pureology for this.

Why We LOVE Pureology:

From the moment hair is exposed to color, it changes. It becomes more vulnerable to damage, its natural shine begins to dull and it takes on a rougher, drier texture. Each of these factors also affects hair’s ability to retain color vibrancy... and Pureology is here to protect and help restore what color-treated hair needs most! Plus they even have a 100% money back guarantee!
  1. Sulphates Are A Big Zero In Their Book.
    Pureology concentrated ZeroSulfate® shampoos use a blend of corn, coconut and sugar to gently cleanse without stripping color.
  2. A Little Goes A Long Way.
    Since Pureology formulas are so concentrated you only need to use a quarter-size amount! That means 70+ shampoos from one bottle – so much to love!
  3. They Have A Complex About Fading
    Pureology exclusive AntiFade Complex® contains antioxidants and full spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens to protect color vibrancy unlike anything else.
  4. Pureology Were Vegan Even Before It Was Cool.
    There 100% vegan formulas are made with sustainably-sourced natural plant extracts and without animal products or by-products.
  5. They Are All About Multi-Tasking.
    Their dual benefit formulas not only provide color protection, they’re formulated to provide whatever else the hair needs — moisture, volume, strength, smoothness — for customized care without sacrifice.


Get Rid Of Brassy With Purple Shampoo

If you have gone for a blonde lighter look, a key worry is that you will get brassy tones coming through.This does not mean a brand new colour is required as we can cancel out those brassy tomes by using a purple shampoo.

Before & After With Redken Blondage

There are lots of fantastic purple shampoos on the market now and we recommend adding a purple conditioner too. These will last a while as you only need to use a couple of times a week. Make sure you leave in for a few minutes to let it do its work. The end result is that the tones and vibrancy you originally walked out of the salon with will be extended.

Protect Your Hair

With any chemical treatment, especially if it is not the first and you follow one colour with another you may find your hair starts to show damage and where and tear.

If you don’t protect and repair the integrity of your hair – we're talking the actual hair bonds and molecules, the next next colour job you have may be the final straw and the damage will require serious intervention in the salon and your future colour choices may be limited.

If you wonder how celebrities like the Kardashians can flip between light and dark it is all down to using a bond re-constructor so their hair can take the constant chemical process.

We have 2 fantastic products we recommend to repair your hair bonds:

Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector works dynamically to help repair damage to all hair types, and it can also be applied once a week between chemical services to further lock-in the results of any given salon treatment. 

Redken ph Bonder, Post Service Perfector is an incredible treatment to use once a week before shampoo to help maintain your hair's natural pH at home


Style It Right

Once you have your wash and condition routine sorted, next think about what styling may be doing to your hair. If you use any kind of heat tool such as a dryer, wand or straighteners we strongly recommend a heat protectant spray which as the name suggests will act as a barrier and protect your hair from heat as heat can affect the vibrancy of your colour.

A must-have product is the Pureology Colour Fanatic Spray which will help cut down on the number of bottles in your bath room as it is multi purpose – it is a heat protectant spray, protects from UV and also delivers shine as well as 19 more benefits!


Wrap Up

We advise trying a shampoo & conditioner from the Pureology anti fade colour shampoo and conditioner range and potentially a purple shampoo and conditioner if you fear brassy tones. 

Also add in the Pureology Colour Fanatic Spray for heat and UV protection and shine.

If budget allows also invest in a bond maintenance product to keep your hair strong and breakage free.
