Six Golden Rules

With the mercury rising
and colors (colours) shifting from chunky contrasts to softer, yet still vibrant
hues, let fashion go straight to your head, or rather your hair, this
season by wearing the latest warm weather shades. The newest colors
(colours) are
like adding cream to your coffee. If you wore a chocolate brown hair
color (colour) this past winter, you can easily step into this season’s
palette with a soft mocha hue.

The newest hair fashions
resemble a slice of pastel paradise. Colorists are doing this by adding
panels of closely related colors (colours). For those who crave pate hair, this
means wearing a trio of lighter shades such as caramel, gold and pate
golden blonde. If you are a brunette, a warm brown base that is
overlaid with auburn and light golden red is guaranteed to energize your
appearance this season.

In stark contrast, salon
professionals are also busy creating a brighter side to this
warm-weather palette by playing up to the strength of reds whether they
are warm, coot or somewhere in between.

If you have wild hair that
you would never dream of taming, consider making a big splash by adding
just a piece or two of citron, fuchsia or blue. You can do this and
still took up to date.

The key is moderation. The newest hair color
(colour)
trends are all about being eye-catching and interesting, without
screaming for people’s attention.


Hair dye can fade from
view long before you are ready to bid adieu. Even so, Joel Dyer,
international. colorist and educator for PureOlogy, says that you can
easily have brilliant hair color (colour) in-between regular salon visits simply
by following these six golden rules:

  • SHAMPOO YOUR
    HAIR LESS FREQUENTLY
    , and when you do, use
    a color-safe (colour-safe) shampoo .
     

  • CONDITION YOUR
    HAIR WITH A PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT


    for color-treated (colour-treated) hair. Always look for label claims regarding
    antioxidant and/or sunscreen ingredients to help protect your hair
    against UVA-UVB rays.

  • RINSE YOUR HAIR
    WITH COOL–NEVER HOT–WATER

    to
    close the cuticle (the outside layer of your hair) and encourage
    real staying power.

  • GIVE YOUR HAIR
    SOME COVERAGE

    when you are
    having fun in the sun by wearing the latest head gear–like a wide
    brimmed hat to deflect damaging UVA-UVB rays.

  • WET YOUR HAIR
    BEFORE SWIMMING
    to prevent it
    from absorbing too much chlorine or salt water.

  • SEE YOUR STYLIST
    REGULARLY,

    and always follow
    his or her advice when it comes to preserving the vibrancy of your
    hair color (colour)
