One of the things that I treat myself to ever 6-8 weeks is a visit to the hair salon. I love everything about the salon experience, from the pampering to meeting new friends in the process. But my favorite part of going to the salon is looking in the mirror after my hair has been re-colored and styled by a professional. The pros have a magic touch, you know?
While I can’t preserve the beautiful blow out that my stylist gives me past a week, I’m pretty savvy at keeping my hair color rich until my next color touch up. Being the daughter of a cosmologist has taught me a thing or two about hair through the years, and learning how to keep color treated hair luxurious between touch ups is one of the best lessons my mom has taught me!
How To Keep Color Treated Hair Luxurious Between Touch Ups
Only Let Color-Safe Products Touch Your Tresses– When you have color treated hair, you have to switch your hair care routine to include products that are color-safe. Typically, those products are sulfate-free and are designed to keep color from bleeding or fading between color touch ups. I use a color-safe shampoo and conditioner, as well as styling products design for treated hair.
Give Your Hair Some A Little Extra Lovin’– Truth be told, coloring can be damaging to your hair, especially if you have lightened your hair. When I jumped on the purple/grey hair bandwagon, I stripped my naturally dark brown hair to platinum blonde. It was a very stressful process for my hair, so I knew I would have to commit to giving my hair some extra TLC.
I love coconut oil because of it’s many beauty benefits, especially how soft and silky it leaves my hair!
To keep my hair moisturized and to prevent split ends, I pamper my strands with coconut oil once a week. A few hours before I wash my hair, I coat my ends in coconut oil and work my way up towards the roots. Coconut oil has molecules small enough to penetrate the shaft of the hair and effectively adds moisture to hair.
Conceal Roots And Gray Hairs Between Touch Ups– My current hair style is “rooted,” which means that about 2 inches of my natural hair color melts into a shade of magenta. While my new growth isn’t exactly my problem with this style, a few renegade grey hairs (not the pretty purply grey that I dye my hair) grow in. I’m not a fan of this type of grey hair, so I cover them up between color touch ups!
During one of my weekly Target trips I discovered a cutting-edge John Frieda product called Root Blur™ Colour Blending Concealer Chestnut to Espresso For Medium to Dark Brunette. The temporary root cover-up powder makes it easy to disguise my grey hairs (also works on roots) in a totally natural-looking way. The Color Blur instantly erases roots and signs of grey, and will not rub off until my next shampoo.
You can find this product at Target on the endcap display (available 12/27 – 3/5) and best of all, if you buy 3 products, you get a $5 Target Gift Card!
