PREP!

Make sure you are prepared before making that big change. To avoid unfavourable results, take time before your appointment to create a little inspiration board for your stylist. Find images of what you want or as close you can get to the colour then the stylist can give you a more professional and realistic take.

DON’T BE SHY

Whether it’s your first time colouring your hair or not, there are always new products and procedures in the hair industry. Don’t be afraid to ask questions about anything. Ask about after care products and level of maintenance so that you know exactly what needs to be done for you to care for your mane.

DO IT YOURSELF

Hair colouring and after care products are becoming better. Colouring human hair is much easier and you can go as light as you want as long you do it in stages to protect and keep the integrity of the extensions. Your own natural hair, on the other hand, is more challenging; we recommend visiting a salon to achieve colours like red and blonde.

HOMECARE

To maintain that salon-finish, you absolutely have invest in the correct aftercare products that are especially made to care for coloured strands. For that you’d have to widen your search beyond the hair aisle you’re used to. If you’re working on a budget rather splurge on your conditioner and skimp on the shampoo.
