Salons may currently be closed while we wait on nationwide COVID-19 restrictions to be lifted, but that doesn’t mean your hair can’t enjoy some TLC. L’Oréal is here today, sharing their top tips (and game-changing products) to prolong the colour of your hair and keep it in the best condition. Read on, your luscious locks will thank you later!
1. Pick the Right Shampoo
Whether you’re a gorgeous brunette, fiery redhead, or a fabulous blonde beauty if you want to prevent your colour from fading then you need to choose your shampoo wisely! First, look out for a low-sulphate formula, as this can help your colour last longer. Then there’s the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo which works hard to protect your colour, helping to keep any hue - whether pastel, vivid, or metallic - looking beautiful and vibrant. Or, to maintain blonde hair between salon visits, be sure to pick up the L’Oréal Elvive Purple Shampoo to help tone down any brassiness that tries to come through.
2. Condition, Condition, Condition!
When we colour our hair, it becomes more fragile, so by applying plenty of conditioner it can help prevent the colour from fading. Look out for a conditioner packed with hair-loving ingredients, like oils, butter, and conditioning polymers to help form a protective barrier and prevent your colour making a bid for freedom! Try the Garnier Banana Hair Food Conditioner to instantly nourish stressed-out locks and to detangle your tresses.
3. Heat Protection
Heat protection sprays are a must-have in your hair care arsenal, especially if you expose your locks to heat styling on a regular basis. As well as heat protection sprays, which can reduce heat damage, treat your hair to the L’Oréal Elvive Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Protection for up to 230-degree protection and luscious, glossy locks!
4. Mask Mania
For intense nourishment and to increase shine, treat your hair twice a week to a hair mask. All it takes is 5-10 minutes, and the results will astound you! Try Garnier Hair Food 3 in 1 Watermelon Hair Mask to help repair damage and boost the volume of your hair!
5. Get Your Salon Finish
You may not be able to sit in the salon chair and chit-chat away with your hairdresser right now, but a salon-worthy treatment isn’t as far away as it may feel! We have two words for you… Wonder Water. The L’Oréal Elvive Wonder Water is the latest game-changing hair care formula from the experts in haircare that transforms your hair in just 8 seconds! The rinse-out liquid conditioner, that’s powdered by Lamellar Technology (you can read all about that here), will leave your locks 10 x smoother, with a glassy shine and silky touch! And all from the comfort of your very own home!
