4. Rinse and Dry
Once the lightener has lifted to the correct level, take your client to the sink and rinse their curls. Use a color-kind shampoo, like INVIGO Color Brilliance Color Protecting Shampoo, followed by Blondor Seal & Care to neutralize the pH levels in the hair. Towel-dry to remove moisture.
5. Tone and Glow
Even if you’ve reached a flawless level of lightening, adding a toner is a must for refining the results. To reach your client’s dream hair color, choose their product depending on the level of commitment and finish they’re going for. Pick permanent Koleston Perfect for long-lasting, intense color, Color Touch for demi-permanent, glossy tones, or Color Fresh for a semi-permanent, zero-damage tint.
6. Coif Their Curls
Once color is fully rinsed, follow a styling routine that suits your client’s curl type. Prep for drying with the EIMI Curl Shaper 72h Curl Defining Gel-Cream, followed by the EIMI Boost Bounce 72h Curl Enhancing Mousse to highlight shape and texture. Make sure you use a diffuser when blow-drying curls then, for a little extra bounce, tong sections with the Pro Curl Conical Hair Curler. And, you’re done.
How to Care for a Curly Balayage
Make sure your client leaves the salon with tips for maintaining their balayage. What they need is a color-kind routine that pampers their curls and locks down their highlights in one. Suggest a gentle shampoo, like NutriCurls Cleansing Conditioner For Waves & Curls, which delicately cleanses from root to tip, without stripping away color.
Then, if their hair is dry, recommend they follow up with NutriCurls Deep Treatment for Waves & Curls. If their curls have more elasticity, a lighter cream, such as Nutricurls Detangling Conditioner for Waves & Curls is perfect. Meanwhile, the NutriCurls Curlixir Balm is a defining dream cream that lends bountiful bounce. It’s a must-have for parched curls, designed to be applied to towel-dried hair before blow-drying or air-drying.
