Highlight
Season!

Preparing your hair for lightening services:

Before lightening your hair, it's essential to have healthy hair to achieve the best results. After all a health canvas will hold the color best and is a great insurance policy on the brassy fade associated with the summer sun.  Start by using a deep conditioning treatment once a week to strengthen and nourish your hair about a month prior to your appointment. Trim any split ends and avoid using heat tools that can damage your hair.  If necessary, be sure your thermal protector is high quality

Tips Tips Tips:

Here are the best courses of action for preserving your color for the spring/summer:

  1. Use a color preserving shampoo and conditioner fortified with SPF, B-Vitamins: Choose products that are formulated to hydrate and nourish the hair vs the scalp. Avoid products with surfactants and alcohols, as these can wash out the dye molecules.

  2. Avoid hot water:  When washing your hair, use lukewarm water instead of hot water. Heat and UV rays are by and far the most damaging elements to the color of your hair. City water and chlorine are no exception so avoid the lovely 25-30 min shower.  Get in, get out. 

  3. Use an SPF DESIGNED FOR YOUR HAIR: After lightening your hair, it's crucial to protect it from the sun's UV rays, which can cause damage and fading. Wear a hat or use a hair sunscreen to protect your hair when you're outside.

  4. Add a color preserving treatment to your appointment! Most hair color preservatives contain ingredients such as silicones, keratin, or other proteins that help to strengthen and protect the hair. These ingredients coat the hair shaft, forming a protective layer that locks in moisture and prevents the color from fading. By using a hair color preservative, you can extend the life of your hair color and keep your hair looking vibrant and healthy for longer. However, it's important to note that hair color preservatives are not a substitute for regular hair care and maintenance.

  5. If you are a dark blonde or a brunette, schedule a gloss to combat the brass.  Look, I know that bonding shampoo is popular, but it is also extremely drying, and can buildup on the hair creating a super drab result over time. Blonding shampoos are also totally ineffective on brunettes. Should it stain, it can be really difficult to remove.  And for the cost of a bonding liter, and color correction, you can get a gloss that can add an additional 8 weeks to your color.
