And keep your hair hue richer for longer

Your hair colour is amaz­ing right af­ter you leave the sa­lon, then it dulls. To keep it look­ing richer for longer, try this!

Wash gently

Heads up: every time you sham­poo, some of that gor­geous colour goes down the drain. “Any­thing that re­moves dirt and oil is also go­ing to re­move colour mol­e­cules,” ex­plains hair­styl­ist Kyle White. He sug­gests do­ing just a water rinse post-gym to give your strands a break. When you do wash, use a colour-de­posit­ing for­mula a few days a week. TRY [1] L’oréal Paris Pure Colour Daz­zling Colour and Vol­ume Sham­poo (R139.95). Scared it’ll be too much? “Di­lute the colour sham­poo with your reg­u­lar sham­poo or con­di­tioner,” says Kyle.

Brighten up

High­lighted hair can turn brassy be­cause of UV ex­po­sure, over­wash­ing or min­er­als in your shower water, re­veals Kyle. Ap­ply a leave-in spritz that nour­ishes hair to make it more man­age­able, like [2] Sch­warzkopf Blondme All Blondes Spray Con­di­tioner (R262). If you find that colour too warm, use a vi­o­let-toned sham­poo “to neu­tralise yel­low tones and keep those lighter streaks sparkly,” rec­om­mends Kyle. De­vel­oped for blondes, [3] Gary Rom Blonde Bril­liance Sham­poo (R335) re­stores vi­brancy with­out strip­ping your hair of mois­ture.

Treat weekly

Reg­u­larly nour­ish your hair with a mask. “A deep-con­di­tion­ing treat­ment will seal your cu­ti­cle so it re­tains colour longer,” says Kyle. [4] Red­ken Color Ex­tend Mag­net­ics Deep At­trac­tion Mask (R455) helps keep your colour vi­brant. Or use Kyle’s DIY trick: su­per­charge your con­di­tioner with a few drops of co­conut oil so it’s even more hy­drat­ing. And al­ways layer on pro­tec­tion be­fore heat-styling. [5] ghd Heat Pro­tect Spray (R210) is light­weight, mak­ing strands gleam. The re­sult: colour that’s good as new.
