5 Better Colour Haircare Tips from Madison Reed
|% Tips for Better Hair Colour - Madison Reed|
Hair Colour Tip 1. Just the RootsDid you know permanent hair colour works by opening your hair cuticle, lifting out the current colour, and depositing a new one? If you repeat this process over and over on the same hair, it will begin to lose protein and become more porous. This affects how your hair colour applications turn out: porous hair takes on a lot of colour easily, but doesn't hold onto it well. Does your hair get really dark when you first colour and then fade very quickly? Then you have porous hair.
The best way to prevent this is by only colouring your roots, the new hair growth, after your initial application of a new colour or shade. That way, you will avoid reprocessing hair that has already been coloured. Wait until you can see a clear band of outgrowth for a more accurate application, about every 3-4 weeks. Overlapping when touching up can cause variations in colour.
Worried about your roots showing between applications?
Use Root Touch Up to get great colour coverage that lasts from shampoo to shampoo. To refresh colour on your lengths and ends, pull permanent colour through your hair every fourth or fifth colouring session. Or you can refresh with semi-permanent colour, which corrects tone and acts as a long-lasting stain on hair that has already been opened.
Hair Colour Tip 2. Gloss it UpSemi-permanent colour, also known as hair gloss, is a beautiful hair multi-tasker! You can also use clear gloss to deep condition and add light-reflecting shine, or tinted shades to brighten faded colour and add shine, tone and dimension. Check out all the new Colour Reviving Gloss from Madison Reed - available in 8 great shades.
Hair Colour Tip 3. Use it or Lose ItI know what you’re thinking: will I have to throw away all that extra hair colour if I only colour my roots? This is very important: only mix the developer and colour that you are using immediately. Do not keep any colour that has been mixed with developer. When they are mixed together, it sets off a chemical reaction. Mixed colour will not be effective, and it can also be dangerous to store. Now for the good news. Unmixed, both developer and colour have a longer shelf life: 3 years unopened and 6 months after package has been opened. Just be sure to keep them separate until you’re ready to use them!
Hair Colour Tip 4. Cut the Harsh ChemicalsA healthier formula makes all the difference when frequently colouring your hair. Harsh chemicals damage hair, making it stripped, dry, brittle, and dull. Colour that is free of ammonia, resorcinol, and PPD is much easier on the scalp and hair shaft. That’s why the Madison Reed Radiant Colour Kit is free of those harmful ingredients and packed with nourishing elements that repair and strengthen hair, leaving it soft, shiny, and bouncy.
Hair Colour Tip 5. Protect Your ColourPicture your hair colour as physical pigments that need help to stay in your hair. Madison Reed's nourishing colour enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner Set is designed to extend the life of hair colour by being more gentle and healthier for your hair. This enables the colour pigments to stay longer because they’re not being stripped out of your hair. Over time, using haircare that repairs and protects your hair also helps it become less porous (remember my explanation at the top?). All of these tips work together to help your hair look and feel better the more you use healthier products!
