1. Use the Right Shampoo
First up, you need to give your ombre bob a little colour maintenance, so make sure you’re washing with a shampoo that keeps your tones glossy, while protecting hair from shade fade. If there’s blonde in there that’s starting to look a little bit brassy, use a purple shampoo, like the INVIGO Cool Blonde Color Refreshing Shampoo. The rest of the time, use INVIGO Color Brilliance Color Protection Shampoo, which keeps tones fresh and shiny while preventing shade fade.
2. Apply a Tailored Conditioner
If your bob is prone to falling flat or frizzing up when humidity hits, it’s important you have a conditioner that’s tailored to your unique needs. It also needs to maintain your ombre colour, which is why we’ve created two versions of the INVIGO Color Brilliance Vibrant Color Conditioner: one for fine/normal hair, and one for thick/coarse strands. Make sure you pick the right one for your hair type, then apply to mid-lengths and ends to damp, just-washed hair. Rinse thoroughly.
3. Mist On a Heat Protection Spray
No matter what other styling products you’re using – a gel, a salt spray or a volumizing mousse – you should always add heat protection before you put hot tools near your hair. Our favorite for weightless shielding is EIMI Thermal Image; a bi-phase formula that gives you shine and protection in a single step. Apply it over the top of any other styling products, so it’s the last thing you use before you turn your hairdryer on.
