When changing up your mane with fabulous color, there are a few things to keep in mind to help maintain your cool new hue…

  • Keep It Up “Using a temporary color shampoo at home can refresh your haircolor,” says Michael Kunz, All-Nutrient Regional Educator. ‘These are water-based, direct dyes that will not lighten or permanently affect your natural pigment. Using products that prevent fading is key to maintaining haircolor. You want to look for ingredients like sunflower seed oil and grape seed extract, which protect against UV damage and other environmental factors.”
  • Root Fix If your roots are showing, Kunz recommends covering them with temporary haircolors in the forms of crayons, creams or powders. “They can be brushed on to blend and conceal the contrast,” he explains. Keith Ferguson, All-Nutrient Regional Educator, also suggests trying a zigzag parting. “This hides roots up to six weeks!”
  • Pick A Technique “Ombré and balayage allow clients to go longer between colorings,” explains Lana Soussan, senior stylist at James Joseph Salon in Boston, MA. “I’m also doing reverse ombrés where the color starts off blonde at the roots and gets darker on the ends. Those fun colors will come into play with temporary color techniques like hair chalking.”
