With auburn blonde hair, you’ve got two of the trickiest tones to maintain in one captivating look. Reds are prone to fading, and warm blondes tend to go brassy, so at-home care by your client is crucial. We don’t recommend they play with home glossing, as the balance of colors is quite complex for a flawless result, but we do suggest they add a few nurturing staples to their hair care kit.
1. A Color Care Shampoo
Your client’s key essential is a shade-saving shampoo, like INVIGO Color Brilliance Color Protecting Shampoo. It’s the same formula we recommend for washing their color out while they’re still in the salon. They can choose between the Fine/Thin Hair or Normal/Thick Hair editions, meaning not only does this shine-boosting shampoo make their color glow; it works with their hair type too.
2. A Shine Boosting Conditioner
Recommend clients follow up their shampoo with the INVIGO Color Brilliance Vibrant Color Conditioner and, once per week, the Vibrant Color Mask. The conditioner is perfect for light detangling and enhancing the shine in auburn blonde hair, while the hair mask lends deep hydration to colored hair, so it stays healthy-looking between salon appointments.
3. A Heat Protection Spray
Because too much heat can cause blondes and reds to fade brassy – and fast – a spritz of heat protection spray is essential when your client styles their hair. Introduce them to EIMI Thermal Image, which infuses mid-lengths and ends with light-reflective shine, while protecting hair from heat up to 220 degrees Celsius.
4. A Glossing Boosting Hair Oil
Auburn blonde hair looks its most Instagrammable when it’s ultra-shiny, so clients may want to treat their strands to hair oil, like Oil Reflections Luminous Smoothing Oil. Not only does it level up radiance when massaged through mid-lengths and ends; it also treats colored hair to a beautifying cocktail of macadamia seed and avocado oils.
