Colour is a temperamental mistress. How many of you have a beautiful colour? How many of you find that it doesn’t quite last the distance, or for the blondes, goes brassy? Lets start with the non-blondes.
When your colour fades it can be due to any number of factors: resistant hair, environmental factors (wind, sun, salt water), hard water and (God forbid) cheap colour products or bad colouring techniques. The answer? Let’s now look at blondes.
Your beautiful blonde hilites look great, then they start to go brassy and look flat, why? Again it can be envirnoment but add in chlorine from the water, water going through old pipes which can contain any number of nasty things and of course build up from product. This is where a clarifying shampoo comes in handy as it draws out all the impurities. Now let’s look at the solution.
Coloured Mousse. My preference: Goldwell Color Soft. It’s so easy to use and lasts for upto 10 shampoos. A coloured mousse can add tone and depth to fading hair or tone down unwanted brassiness. Why do I love it? It extends the life of a colour so that clients get a lot more value for money and need not get their colour done more than necessary.
But here’s the warning; don’t try and pick it out yourself, get professional advice on which one is best for you, if you pick the wrong one you may end up with a grey blonde, ewww.
