How to: Care for your Hair After a Balayage
How exciting! We just spent like four hours together and now you’re leaving with a GORGEOUS balayage! Totally worth the wait right 😉 hehe.
Here are some hair products that are going to help your hair and balayage stay looking fresh and beautiful :
This shampoo is gold. Your hair just went through a lot, in order to lighten your hair we had to break through a few layers of your hair cuticle. Don’t be afraid! This shampoo is here to help rebuild your hairs strength and integrity.
> This shampoo is going to restore your hairs strength and elasticity, while adding vital moisture. The Cell Perfector Technology provides additional care – repairing the hair by filling structural gaps, restoring elasticity and imparting deep shine throughout.
I know what you’re thinking “should I use this shampoo every day??
YES! Absolutely, this shampoo is safe to use daily! I’m not saying to wash your hair everyday, but every time you do wash your hair its safe to use 🙂 Use it up, your hair will love you for it <3
“Sealed Ends” exactly how it sounds. This product is going to keep your ends healthy. The ends of your hair are always the most fragile because, if you think about it, its the hair thats been around the longest.
This product can be applied to dry or wet hair. I’d suggest to apply it on towel dried hair before you blow dry and style. I’d even go as far as saying, use it again after your blow dry and just use a small amount on the ends! Your hair will soak this product up like crazy! Your hair loves this as much as we love coffee. Any time, any day, any where, am I right!
Suitable to be used daily as well. With the shampoo and sealed ends you’ll be feeding your hair tons of vital nutrients!
One more for the Brass Attack Clients.
If you know your hair already, that you naturally fade into a brassy color, then YES you’ll need this. This is a purple shampoo, literally, that will help tone your hair in-between hair appointments. If used correctly, this shampoo will keep your hair looking the way it did when you left the salon.
HOW TO USE:
This is always used incorrectly because it is called a purple “shampoo.” However, this is not a shampoo thats going to clean your hair and scalp, it simply tones your hair color. So wait, when do I use it?
After shampooing your hair twice ( once to clean your hair and remove any products or oils, and again to clean your scalp and purify your hair follicles ) then enter the Purple Shampoo, eh em, toner. Apply all over your hair and allow it to sit for at least 5 minutes, up to 10 if you really wanted to. It won’t hurt your hair if you leave it on for longer amounts of time, but if rinsed too soon it may not have the chance to actually tone your hair. After the allotted time, rinse and continue with your conditioner as normal.
And wah lah! Your hair is clean and toned!
When will I have to come in again to retouch my Balayage?
Balayages generally last up to 3 – 6 months or even a year!
It honestly depends on when you’re ready to move your blonde closer to your roots again or want to take your balayage to a lighter color.
I’m trying to achieve a light blonde, and don’t feel like this time was light enough, when can we go even lighter again?!
Yes, achieving a light blonde from being a darker brunette, or having previously dyed hair may take a few sessions. It’s safe to lighten again after at least 6-8 weeks.
This will give your hair to build back its strength again to be lightened. If you use the products listed above then you’ll be more than good to go!
How long until my color fades?
This is a tricky question because we all wash our hair at differently. Some wash their hair everyday, some every other, some wash their hair once a week!
In general, you’ll start to notice your hair fade after about 7-8 weeks. To be honest, sometimes women like the way their hair lightens up and don’t feel the need to tone again. Like I mentioned before, if you know your hair fades brassy then you’ll probably want to come in at about 7-8 weeks. Right about the time you should come in for your haircut anyways 😉
