You don’t always realize how the small choices made each day can have an impact on your hair color. While booking regular salon appointments for touchups to refresh your shade or trim ends can make a big difference, sometimes this biggest color upgrade comes from regular care routines. From paying attention to how often you use hot tools to UV exposure and the quality of the water you wash with, all of these are contributing factors to the overall health of your hair and therefore the appearance of your color.
The Service: Single Process
Single process hair color is one of the most common color appointments in the salon and often the most satisfying. From root touch-ups to cover grays to all-over shades to enhance hues for dramatic effect, these appointments occur often and consistently due to regrowth. Apart from touching up new growth, keeping your mid-lengths and ends looking their best takes a bit of TLC. A color-safe and/or color-enhancing shampoo and conditioner is the first step of defense against premature color fade.
Redken Color Extend Brownlights Shampoo and Conditioner is one of the best ways to enhance cool brunette shades and improve the health of your hair. This sulfate-free blue-toning shampoo, this duo rids hair of brass and fights fading by prolonging color.
The Service: Highlights & Balayage
From traditional foil highlights to balayage to foilyage, anytime lightener is used extra steps should be taken to combat damage and prolong the life of hair color. When hair is lightened, the pH of your strands is altered leaving it in a more vulnerable state. Following up any lightening service with Shades EQ or Shades EQ Bonder Inside and Acidic Bonding Concentrate is the perfect way to normalize pH levels and add necessary moisture and condition to highlighted hair.
The Service: Shades EQ Gloss
Shades EQ is already known as a stylist favorite in the salon, but there is good reason for it to be a client favorite as well! As hair color or highlights grow out and gain exposure to environmental stressors, Shades EQ can counteract unwanted tones and refresh color for a shiny, conditioned feel. Additionally the new Shades EQ Bonder Inside is made specifically to strengthen sensitized hair. The latest innovation from Redken, Shades EQ Bonder Inside is designed for sensitized hair to rebuild strength. This is an ideal service any time and especially following any lightening process for its ability to add strength while also improving tone, shine and condition.
Gloss appointments can be as frequent as you need and the perfect complement for any color or style session. To keep your gloss looking its best, color-safe shampoo should always be used to cut down on excess fade. Redken Color Extend Blondage for Blondes, Redken Color Extend Brownlights for Brunettes, and Redken Graydient for natural or salon-created grays help prolong the benefits of your gloss.
