Stepping out of the salon with fresh color, you might not be thinking about the upkeep you’ll need to adhere to before your next appointment. However, day to day habits like adding heat protection and leave-in treatments can greatly improve the natural fade that occurs after you color your hair. If you’re looking to stop discoloration, unwanted fading or brassiness in its tracks you’ll need to step up your routine with products targeted at keeping your hair color looking its best between salon appointments.
Depending on your shade and specific service there are various tips that you can utilize the improve the appearance. With Wella Professionals, there are plenty of options to improve color whether you regularly cover greys, have vibrant pink streaks or prefer to enhance your natural tone.
Fashion Shades & Vibrant Hues
Creating fashion shades or vibrant hues can be a challenge to begin with. However, after you’ve achieved a pastel pink or bold blue, the real feat comes in keeping them looking fresh between appointments. Washing, styling and external stressors can easily cause colors prematurely and are more noticeable when it comes to brighter hues.
Luckily, there’s a new way to enhance tone and improve condition in a single step whether in the salon or at home — Wella Professionals Color Fresh Masks. With the ability to deposit color while also conditioning, Color Fresh Masks can upgrade your hue or keep them looking bold between visits.
In addition to adding color and condition, a daily color-specific shampoo and conditioner system is a must-have anytime you color your hair and is especially vital to vibrant shades. ColorMotion+ Shampoo and Conditioner is recommended for normal usage in addition to Wella Professionals Color Fresh Masks to extend the longevity of color while also strengthening strands and providing endless shine.
Highlights or Balayage
While placement and level of lift differs between highlights and balayage, they are both services that require a lightening agent to lift. Depending on the starting level, desired tone and porosity of the hair, you’ll want to develop a healthy routine between highlight appointments.
If color fade or unwanted hues are a problem, start by scheduling toning Color Touch appointments between highlights. By adding a gloss with demi-permanent Wella Professionals Color Touch between regular service appointments, your stylist is able to counteract unwanted tones and add multifaceted shine.
If fading is an issues, don’t leave the salon without a Wella Professionals Color Fresh Mask to use between appointments. With shades such as Pearl Blonde, Chocolate Touch or Caramel Glaze, you’ll easily be able to add a hint of color or counteract brassiness from the comfort of your own home.
