Highlights and dyes can damage your hair. Check out our stylists’ hair colour ideas and tips to keep your strands vibrant and strong.
||Always use products specifically designed for colour-treated hair. Only colour-safe products have the technology to help you protect your colour and keep it vibrant and fresh.|
||After you colour your hair, wait two or three days (if you can make it) before shampooing to allow the colour to be absorbed completely. If you want to shower, use conditioner in place of shampoo to give extra moisture without stripping the colour.|
||Be especially gentle with colour-treated hair — colouring weakens hair and makes it more prone to breakage. Only use covered elastics to tie it back and brush it with a natural bristle brush when it's dry.|
||Never go swimming without protecting your colour. Before going into a pool or the ocean, apply a leave-in conditioner on damp hair to prevent the chemicals and salt from stripping your colour.|
||Don't go to a tanning bed or sit in the sun without covering your hair. The UV rays will react with your colour and may alter it or cause it to fade, so cover your hair with a scarf or hat.|
||Don't forget to condition your hair daily! Coloured hair needs extra moisture to keep it soft and smooth.|
