Because they’re soft and subtle by nature, pastel colours have a tendency to fade out fast. That’s why it’s crucial your clients know all the right tips and tricks to lock their pigment down for longer. Here’s the advice you should be sharing with them before they go…
1. Protect Pastel Hues with the Right Shampoo and Conditioner
Colour care starts in the shower. Your client needs a shade-saving shampoo and a hydrating conditioner, so point them in the direction of ColorMotion+ Color Protection Shampoo and Moisturizing Color Reflection Conditioner. The shampoo rinses out aggressors that are prone to fading out pigment, while the conditioner moisturizes the mid-lengths and ends, giving pastel hues a dose of shine.
2. Top Up the Tone with a Colour-Depositing Hair Mask
With the Color Fresh Mask, your client can inject a fresh dose of pastel colour at home, using a mask that matches the shade of their candy balayage. In this collection of colour-depositing conditioners, they’ll find Lilac Frost, Pink, Blue and Mint – meaning a range of rainbow and pastel shades are covered. Tell them to use it when colour needs refreshing, in place of their usual conditioner. All they have to do is apply it to wet hair, over pastel colour only, let it develop for 10 minutes, then rinse thoroughly.
3. Mist on a Heat Protection Spray Every Time Hair is Styled
This is key: if your client doesn’t want heat damage to fade their pastel colour, they should use a heat protection spray every time they start styling. EIMI Thermal Image is a shine-boosting staple, designed to veil hair in a weightless shield. Recommend they mist it on before blow-drying, straightening or curling, on top of any other styling creams, mousses or oils. Simple.
