Chocolate brown, ash blonde
or light chestnut... you love to change your hair color with the seasons. Follow our pro’s advice to ensure your constantly changing shade doesn’t damage your locks.
Frequently changing your hair color is not dangerous in itself. ‘It all depends on how well your hair takes on the new color. Quality is key: if your hair is healthy, changing your color should not be a problem. However, if your hair is fine or dry, regularly changing your color is not advised. There are two different types of hair coloring: those which darken a lighter base and those which lighten darker base shades. The first is much easier to achieve than the second’.
Nevertheless, each time you color your hair there are always certain consequences. ‘Make sure you allow a professional to take care of your color transformation to ensure optimum results. Once your color is complete, you’ll need to make regular salon appointments. Your aim should be to create a long-lasting shade and prevent fade. Listen to what your hair is telling you; if it feels coarse or fragile, try not to change your hair more than 4 times per year’. Our advice:
If you do change your color regularly, opt for gentler formulas which are free from oxidants, such as a Gloss treatment
. This technique is not damaging to your hair and will gradually wash out as you shampoo. On the other hand, you should avoid repeatedly stripping or bleaching your hair as this will weaken it considerably. In terms of which products you should be using, targeted formulas are your best option
