Protect your hair against heat

Every time you use styling tools like straighteners or blowdryers, you put your hair at risk of damaging the hair follicle if you haven’t used an adequate heat protectant. By protecting your hair, you’ll reduce colour fade by keeping the integrity of your locks in good condition.

Avoid hot showers

Hot water can decrease the intensity of your hair colour, as the higher temperatures open up your cuticles, releasing precious colour and moisture. Shampoo and rinse with room-temperature water, towel dry, condition, then rinse with the coldest water you can stand to seal that cuticle shut. This will provide longer-lasting color, keep your locks hydrated and eliminate split ends.

Use colour intensifying products

To keep your hair colour fresh for longer, we recommend using products that are specifically designed to enhance your colour. Ranges like Fabuloso Pro or Kerastase Touche Chromatique are perfect for adding vibrant colour back into your hair, so you can avoid the washed-out, faded colour look.
