Coloring your locks, or removing existing color build-up, is a chemical process which can weaken and damage the hair’s fibres. Hair salons
always have at least one color specialist on hand who knows the ins and outs of the hair coloring process. What’s more, these specialists can create a bespoke hair color depending on your hair type, styling habits and skin tone. They will be able to advise you on which tones will suit you and which won’t before you make your final decision, using the highest quality products for optimum results. Maintaining your new shade.
Voila! We hope you love your new shade! Now, it’s all about maintenance. Your color is probably vibrant and glossy at this stage, however if you fail to nourish and care for it properly, color-fade is inevitable. Fight back and maintain your red color by going for regular root touch-ups in the salon. You should also be using specifically designed products for colored hair, such as the Colour Therapy Range
