When it comes to colouring your hair, it’s important to get it right! We’ve gathered our top expert colour care tips to allow you to embark upon (or continue) your colour journey in the salon-recommended way.

Make sure you also always seek a professional’s expertise when taking care of your coloured hair; according to 

It Starts In The Salon: Protect Your Hair

A principle reason why you should always turn to your hair stylist when colouring your hair is to prevent damage. The experts will know what the limits are for your hair and what products will work best for you. Now, professionals have access to technology in the form of bonding systems, take L’Oreal Professionnel’s Smartbond, a salon-only, protective treatment that is applied during the colouring process. The result is strong, healthier-looking hair that retains its colour for much longer! We’ve seen the likes of Redken’s pH-Bonder and Matrix’ The Re-Bond products also offering this same level of strand support to take colour to the next step.

For those of us who regularly like to change up our hair colour, it’s a true game changing step in the colouring process. With at-home care systems available too, we’re never looking back!

At-Home Maintenance: Choose The Right Shampoo And Conditioner

If you love the gloss, swish and volume of freshly-coloured hair, you'll want to preserve it for as long as possible. This is where a colour shampoo and conditioner like Kérastase Reflection Chromatique are essential. The shampoo cleanses the hair fibre without stripping the all-important colour, preventing fade-out and dullness, while the conditioner provides protective moisture and boosts shine. What's more, Kérastase's Touche Chromatique (available in four colour-specific treatments) can be added to the hair mask to inject your perfect shade of colour, breathing a new lease of colour life into your tresses.

Touch Up Your Roots

Even if you make regular trips to the salon to top up your hair’s colour, it’s often impossible to avoid roots rearing their heads at some point. However, thanks to L’Oréal Professionnel’s new Hair Touch Up, you don’t have to hide under a hat in between visits! With its concentrated pigments inspired by makeup, its diverse range of colours will have your hair looking beautifully natural all of the time.
