The more vibrant the colour, the more it will fade, which means red purple balayage can quickly lose its luster through a brunette mane. So how do clients maintain their shade? Recommend they try these hair care switch-ups…
1. Wash with a Vibrancy-Boosting Shampoo
For regular washing, your client should swap traditional shampoo for a colour-kind formula. Our favourite for boosting shine is INVIGO Brilliance Color Protection Shampoo. Infused with lime caviar, it levels up shine and nourishes coloured locks. Suggest they follow with the Vibrant Color Conditioner to complete their routine.
2. Top Up with a Red-Tinted Conditioner
There’s another conditioner that clients with red purple hair need in their kit; introduce them to Wella Color Fresh Mask in Red, so they can quickly top up their tone at home. Designed to be used in place of their usual conditioner when colour is looking dull, they should focus it through balayaged sections, leave on for three to five minutes, then rinse thoroughly. Their berry shade will appear revived.
3. Add Extra Gloss with a Shine Spray
Red purple balayage looks its best when it’s glossy and gleaming, so point clients in the direction of a shine spray they can spritz through mid-lengths and ends. EIMI Glam Mist offers a weightless glow, while protecting locks from frizz-inducing humidity, so it’s a great finishing touch for their violet-tinted mane.
