On the agenda is keeping your perfect color on lock for as long as possible, while ensuring your hair feels healthy and looks glossy. These tips will help you care for their colored hair like a pro at home.
USE AN ANTIOXIDANT SHAMPOO
The perfect formula for fighting shade fade? An antioxidant-rich shampoo. ColorMotion+ Color Protection Shampoo is packed with antioxidants to protect your client’s shade, as well as Free Radicals Protection Technology. This product works by encapsulating metals from water, reducing the formation of free radicals which are responsible for color fading. Using the right kind of shampoo is a key to reap the color-protecting benefits in between salon appointments, leaving hair with a smooth, high-shine finish.
APPLY A WEEKLY HAIR MASK
The key to maintaining even, glowing hair color starts with well-conditioned, nourished locks. Hair masks and conditioners are essential for keeping your locks healthy and your color vibrant. After washing with your go-to color-locking shampoo, work Color Motion+ Moisturizing Color Reflection Conditioner through mid-lengths to ends to revive color and shine. For a deeper conditioning treatment once a week, apply Color Motion+ Structure Mask to sensitized areas and stressed-out ends, which will help to intensely strengthen and smooth the hair.
WASH HAIR LESS OFTEN
It may sound obvious, but the more you wash your hair, the quicker color molecules will fade. Whenever hair gets wet, each individual strand swells and a small amount of color pigment seeps out, which is why extending the washing cycle is a must to keep their hair looking fresh. We recommend to lather up their hair less often and add EIMI Dry Me dry shampoo to your kit; a refreshing mist that keeps hair looking and feeling clean in between washes.
PROTECT FROM ROOT TO TIP
Did you know the sun can also lighten and fade your hair shade? To protect your color in the sun, spritz INVIGO UV Hair Color Protection Spray onto damp or dry hair. This formula contains vitamin B5 to promote strong, healthy hair, while blocking the sun from fading color.
GIVE REGULAR TRIMS
To achieve the most healthy-looking color, book regular trims alongside your color appointments. Split ends create a dry, sensitized base for hair dye, meaning the color may not absorb into hair properly or penetrate deep enough. Keeping ends freshly trimmed means a healthier hair base for your shade of the moment.
BE GENTLE WITH HEAT
When it comes to heat, be gentle on hair. Whether blow drying, curling or straightening, heat can result in dry, unmanageable texture. This can leave hair color looking flat and dull. EIMI Thermal heat protectant spray will safeguard hair from heat while smoothing the cuticle with a two-phase system: first by protecting, second by nourishing. Also try embracing your natural texture by skipping heat and allowing hair to airdry, scrunching EIMI Ocean Spritz through mid-lengths to ends to boost a natural wave.
PREP FOR COLOR
Is your color appointment coming up? Use a clarifying shampoo a few days before heading to the salon to remove all residue ahead of your color treatment. We’d recommend clients don’t wash their hair the day of the appointment, as natural sebum oils will help to protect the scalp during the coloring process.
INVIGO Aqua Pure Purifying Shampoo will leave locks fresh, clean and prepped for your new shade.
OPT FOR WELLAPLEX
This helps create a healthy-looking finish for any hair type. The smart formula helps to reduce damage and add strength to every strand by reinforcing the hair bonds from within. WellaPlex is included with all lightening services to reduce damage.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR BLONDE HAIR
Whether you've gone for a rich caramel blonde or ice white blonde, INVIGO Blonde Recharge Conditioner is available in a warm or cool formula to revive your shade at home. Use this color-depositing conditioner once a week to keep blonde looking fresh in between appointments. For cool blondes, recommend the INVIGO Blonde Recharge Cool Blonde Shampoo, perfect for hair that needs an icy boost.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR BROWN HAIR
Over-processed colored hair can often appear dull a few weeks after a salon visit due to daily washing and environmental aggressors. Add an extra glow to rich brunettes and classic dark shades with a glossing treatment and make sure you’re using a brunette shampoo when washing. Book your appointment in between color visits to add shine and refresh their color in one.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR RED HAIR COLOR
To keep red hair color as vibrant as possible, INVIGO Brilliance Vibrant Color Conditioner is your go-to. It contains Histidine and Vitamin E to help control the oxidation process after coloring and to protect color, keeping that fiery hue fresh for longer.
