Tips and tricks
Getting your hair coloured is only half the battle won. Even the loveliest shades fade ungracefully if left without post-colour care. Invest in a shampoo and conditioner meant for coloured hair; using the same brand as the hair colour ensures that the pH levels of your scalp remain balanced. Tinted hair can be adversely affected by rain, chlorinated water and excessive exposure to the sun, particularly shades of red, blue, purple, etc. Make that bottle of protective leave-in conditioner your best friend and make sure the product is enriched with SPF. Make time for regular keratin treatments; not only are they relaxing but the treatments also ensure that the colour retains its lustre longer.
