Every so often, we all feel that itch for change. A little something that goes a long way in uplifting our spirits. And for some, this rejuvenation lies in something as simple as a change in hair colour. Even here, some are more about taking risks whilst other prefer to play it safe. However, whichever way you choose to go, there’ll always be a set of rules you need to adhere to if you want to sport your fabulous new look for as long and wide as possible. While some of you might be seasoned hair colour experts, others are less aware of what to expect. Which is why we as a beauty salon in dubai who specialises in a variety of hair colour treatments, have taken the liberty of sharing a few important tips to help maintain your colour and ensure your hair has life.
No matter what the colour, or how much or little you’ve coloured your hair before, we think this list should come in handy. What they typically mean when they say hair gets ‘damaged’ after colouring is that it becomes more porous. Which in turn means that your hair can lose colour molecules quite easily, especially when it’s wet. Hence, why you should follow the tips below:
WASH YOUR HAIR LESS: Though you might’ve recoiled at that, this is one of the best things you can do for coloured hair: particularly if you’ve just coloured it. Honestly, it isn’t that bad. 2-3 times a week is acceptable. This is mainly to ensure you retain the naturally nourishing oils that are in your hair which helps reduce dryness. Furthermore, some hair colours now come with oils infused into the formula as well, so you want to make sure you don’t get rid of them either. If you have excessively dry hair in general, consider coming in for a hair botox treatment in dubai first.
USE PRODUCTS FOR COLOURED HAIR: You’ve probably seen those shampoos and conditioners in supermarket aisles looking all vibrant and bright. Well, you should be picking those that clearly have labels specifying they’re for coloured hair. Other types of shampoos and conditioners will clean your hair alright, but won’t do anything to protect it. Concentrate on the ends of your hair since this is the oldest and therefore most exposed. Products that are specifically made for coloured hair help bring out its shine and are made out of ingredients designed to preserve it for longer.
MINIMAL USE OF STYLING TOOLS: Seeing as how we’re a beauty salon in dubai, make no mistake this breaks our hearts too. However, you’ve got to pick your battles sometimes and in this case you’re going to have to lay off your straighteners and curling irons as much as possible. Not that you can’t use them at all of course; you just need to limit their use. The heat from these products can adversely affect your hair colour, sometimes damaging already dry and brittle hair even further. In good news though, you can still use your blow dryer.
