HOW TO MAINTAIN ITS COLORING?
You have just redone your coloring , it is beautiful, shiny, the reflections sparkling … Now, you have to be able to maintain it and make it last as long as possible and for that, it is essential to use the appropriate products.
Already, the first rule to apply when you have colored hair is not to use oxidative products so you opt for mild shampoos! We absolutely avoid detox shampoos even if they are “super trendy” at the moment. Their role is to purify the hair shaft, which is not the case when you have colored hair.
Easy + advice: When you go to do your first wash just after you have achieved your color, make a mask on dry hair that you leave on for ten minutes to set the pigments. Then apply a shampoo suited to your color.
If you have dandruff, adapt your shampoo to your scalp and choose a treatment that will take care of your color.
Another ideal product to maintain its color: the pre-shampoo! The advantage is that it adapts to all colors. The PH helps restore radiance to your color. Apply once a week to the hair shaft. We avoid applying it to the scalp and above all we do not abuse the quantities: a small amount is enough.
To be completed of course with a shampoo for colored hair.
If you want an effective, 2 in 1 product, Revlon Pro has developed the Revlonissimo range that you can adapt to your hair color. These are easy-to-apply, practical treatments, which include shampoo and treatment for a guaranteed 45-day maintenance.
To be completed with Uniq 1 spray , without rinsing.
For bleached blonde hair
Here too, we will find products from the coloring specialist Redken. One product in particular is going to save your blonde about to turn yellow, or worse, green: the Blonde Idol Daily Treatment .
Inside: two creams that will deliver the very precise amount of pigments you need according to the evolution of your color, thanks to the adjustable ring. Handle with care. Perfectly complement it with Blonde Idol shampoo from Redken.
You will find the same type of treatment in the Reflection range from Kérastase with the chromatic touches that are used in addition to the mask. It will play a role of vector there and makes it possible to bring light and reactivate a tarnished coloring.
Choose the key according to your color: brown, copper, red …
Protect your hair color from UV rays
The sun’s rays will help to tarnish your coloring. If you want it to last as long as possible, protect it with a leave-in spray. To apply just before drying.
CURLY HAIR: THE RIGHT ACTIONS!
You should know that each curly has its own way of taking care of its mane. Do you have your tips? We give you our advice!
Some want to let their curls live their life, others keep wanting to tame them. However, curly hair is beautiful but it still requires a minimum of maintenance.
Washing curly hair
Washing your hair daily, whether it is straight or not, is not recommended. When you have curly hair, it’s simple, you wash it as little as possible. And we wash , focusing mainly on the scalp only , with a mild shampoo adapted to the problem.
The ideal before washing is to make a bath of oil the day before that you leave it on overnight or at least 1 hour. The choice in oils is not lacking: baobab, jojoba , castor, argan, olive, coconut oil.
After the 2 regular shampoos, we always make a mask and detangle our hair with a wide tooth comb or a brush for wet hair then we rinse thoroughly.
From time to time, do not hesitate to do a deeper treatment. Once a week, you can mix oil + cream and leave it on overnight.
The next day, it will be necessary to favor a very nourishing and slightly sulphated cleansing base , and then detangle with the fingers with a conditioner (conditioner).
Styling curly hair
Curly hair is very demanding when it comes to drying.
Hair dryers are often to be banned . We wring gently with a towel, without rubbing them. Add a small amount of mask or leave- in treatment to wet hair and dry in the open air. When, in winter, the dryer is necessary, we choose the lowest temperature and we use a diffuser in cold air mode.
Little trick: put your curls in a micro-fiber towel or an old t-shirt, (this will allow less frizz than with a cotton towel) and roll up the towel: this is the “plopping” technique. .
Apart from shampoos, we avoid wetting our hair at all costs to style it. Instead, we opt to apply care products dry , after heating the material in the palms of the hands.
In the morning, you can wake up the curls with a curl wake-up spray . It m ixture a dab carefully with a little water to make it lighter and applies it upside down in “scrunchant” curls upwards.
You can add a few drops of vegetable oil for shine.
With the approach of the summer holidays, the sun, the swimming, and all the enemies of the hair, you can in preventive care, apply moisturizing oils, rich in proteins and protective against UV.
Applied morning and (or) evening, these emulsions coat the curl and protect it from moisture while allowing it to retain its spring.
In short, we favor hair oils , which are nourishing but not necessarily moisturizing, we avoid alcohol-based styling that is too drying for the fiber, or even ultra silicone serums that could seal their appeal.
Lately, laboratories have revised their copy a lot to offer new treatments that are both intuitive and effective. To avoid the very glossy side of the oil, they came up with new light and malleable ” day creams “, based on essential sheathing and moisturizing vegetable oils, but also proteins that cling to the cuticle, or even , as at Redken , sugar crystals which fix and memorize the shape of the loop without weighing down or cardboard.
Finally, if you want to do a slightly lighter treatment in terms of the products, you can test for the Curly Girl Method. A method that is becoming popular and which advocates a return to naturalness for curly hair by removing sulfate shampoos and heating devices from your routines. Basically, we focus on conditioners, mild natural cleansers and emollients like vegetable oils and shea butter . If you want to try this method, be patient, you will certainly have to try several products before finding the ideal routine.
