HOW TO MAINTAIN BRUNETTE HAIR
They say blondes have more fun, but we beg to differ. We think the party is where the brunettes are and warmer tones are definitely making a comeback this summer. The only downside of brunette hair is the inevitable dullness once your colour starts to fade. Split ends are also a lot more obvious on brunette hair than blonde.
But not to worry! Whether you are rocking delectable chocolate tones or luscious caramel and chestnut swirls, we want to see you shine. We have put together some useful tips on how to maintain your brunette hair and keep it glossy. And also a little bit extra… enjoy!
Step 1: Shampoo
We worry so much about blonde hair turning brassy, but we forget this also happens with brunette hair over time when colour starts to fade. Maintain your brunette with chocolate shampoo to reduce brassiness and add ash tones to your hair, keeping it vibrant and alive. Colourance Cool Chocolate Shampoo does exactly this while its wheat amino acids provide nourishment for increased body and lustrous shine.
Step 2: Mask
Hair masks work wonders for your hair as they are a more intense version of hair conditioner designed as a leave in treatment to nourish your hair. One way to keep your colour vibrant is to use a hair mask that performs a restorative action while also reviving and intensifying your colour. Inebrya Chocolate and Chestnut mask are great for different brunette tones and breathe life back into dull and lifeless hair.
Step 3: Heat Protectant
Heat has the ability to alter the colour of your hair because it is essentially burning the colour while you blow dry or straighten. This heating action over time will make your colour a bit more lifeless, so it is important you take action in preventing the damage by applying a thermal protectant. 18in1 Smoothing Cream is a great thermal protection as it not only protects your hair from heat, but is also light in consistency making for easy styling and flexible hold. Style your hair to perfection while protecting your hair from heat.
Step 4: Argan Oil
You may have taken all the right steps to taking care of your hair, but notice it still looks a bit worn down. This is due to many factors including chemical damage, environmental influences, diet and your overall health that can affect your hair quality and condition. Argan Oil has been commonly referred to as a miracle oil for hair treatment, especially dry hair. This is due to its ability to help prevent split ends, control frizzy hair, add shine and repair damaged hair. Oro Therapy Rubino Puro has all the benefits if Argan Oil with added Sweet Cyperus Oil while also fixing and enhancing the brilliance of cosmetic colours, its anti-oxidising action helps prolong colour life. It films and smooths cuticle scales, restores structure, tone and silky softness to chemically treated hair.
Makeup to pop
To really make your brunette pop, stick to richer colours of makeup. Spicy reds, peaches and coral colours are fabulous with brunette locks with deep eye shadow tones for your eyes. You can also stick to the more neutral tones for everyday wear.
