Natural or coloured: how can you enhance your hair colour?

Is your colour looking dull, tired and down in the dumps? Rest assured, your lacklustre locks are not a lost cause. Here is our advice on reviving your hair’s radiant shine, whether it be natural or coloured.

Contrary to what you might think, just because Mother Nature has blessed you with a beautiful hair colour, you still can’t get away without giving it some maintenance. Just like your friends who love to colour their hair, it is recommended you establish a targeted beauty regime. We recommend the following:

Brush your hair regularly:

As mundane as it may be, brushing your hair is actually really important for ensuring your hair has a glossy appearance. It allows you to remove residue accumulated from styling products and dust, both of which tend to dull your colour. Just as important, it promotes a more even spread of sebum. This natural body oil makes the hair fibres shiny for glossier locks.

Use a shampoo targeted to your colour…

You can’t beat products that respect the nature of your hair. A shampoo containing henna is the best bet for a natural red colour, whereas blondes should use an anti-yellowing formula such as those from the Jean Louis David Go Blondie range. Finally, those who have gone for a colouring treatment will benefit from protecting their locks with a shampoo and mask specifically formulated for coloured hair.

…and pigmented treatments

Whether you have coloured hair or not, pigmented treatments are ideal for reviving lacklustre locks. Available in several colours, these products boost your colour’s intensity and shine for two to three weeks. Magic!

A final rinse in cold water

Not all that enjoyable yet undoubtedly effective, a cold water rinse helps tighten the hair’s cuticles. As these are smoothed down, they reflect the light better.

Getting a Gloss treatment for ultra-shiny locks

The secret trick for shiny hair? The Gloss treatment of course. This semi-temporary colouring treatment was designed to warm up highlights and add shine to your locks. When applied subtly, this treatment is suitable for all hair types and is an exclusive technique by Jean Louis David.
