1. Cool Down Brassy Tones With Purple Shampoo
If there are blends of bronde or blonde highlights in your client's balayage, remind them how important it is to maintain their colour with a purple shampoo. The violet pigment helps to neutralize any brassy or yellow tones, so when locks start to fade too warm, they can cool their colour back down again. INVIGO Cool Blonde Color Refreshing Shampoo is the perfect pick, loved by colourists, as it refreshes highlights in 3-5 minutes while keeping hair silky soft.
2. Keep Hair Healthy with Colour-Safe Care Products
When they aren't using a purple shampoo, your client needs hydrating hair care heroes in their kit. Point them in the direction of Ultimate Repair for the most nourishing ritual. The Ultimate Repair Shampoo cleanses away damaging aggressors, like pollutants and metals in the hair, while kick-starting the bond-rebuilding process in even the most sensitized strands. Then the Ultimate Repair Conditioner replenishes locks from the inside out, leaving hair visibly moisturized but never weighed down.
The final step is the Ultimate Repair Miracle Hair Rescue, which repairs signs of damage through all hair types in just 90 seconds. All you have to do is mist it through clean, towel-dried tresses and let it absorb for the full time period. After that, your client can style their hair as they usually would, with straight hair appearing sleeker, and natural curl patterns appearing sleeker and more defined.
3. Refresh Their Balayage Hair Colour With a Pigmented Mask
Another must-have in every colour care kit is the Color Fresh Mask. It's a tinted semi-permanent treatment that refreshes salon colour in no more than 10 minutes. Your client can take it home with them, and reach for it whenever tresses start to look faded or dull. Tell them to smooth it through, clean damp hair, let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse out thoroughly.
Bonus: there are a range of shades to choose from, making it easy to boost any high contrast balayage. Help your clients find the perfect mask for their mane...
For golden or caramel tones: Up the warmth but skip the brassiness with the beautifully rich Golden Gloss or Caramel Glaze; two radiant hues that look great with a bronde colouring.
For a blonde blend: Correct orange and yellow tones in blonde locks by applying Ivory Blonde; an ultra cool and icy hue for brassy emergencies.
For chocolatey locks: Get brunettes back on track with Chocolate Touch. It's a decadent brown that nixes any brassiness from dark hair, while adorning tresses with a radiant gleam.
For rainbow brights: From fuchsia Pink to blazing Red, the Color Fresh Mask collection even boasts a range of brights for clients who opted to add rainbow ribbons to their look.
