1. Paint the Colors Brighter
This maintenance trick starts in the salon, before painting has even begun. If your client wants their pink and blue hair to last longer, ask if they’re willing to go slightly brighter than they initially planned. Rainbow hues fade over time, so they’ll soon reach the color they were hoping for, but, the fact that they started out more pigmented means the shade will stay fresher for longer.
2. Recommend Protective Hair Care
Remind your clients how important it is to use colored hair care products at home. One of our favorite combinations for shielding pastels and bolds is the ColorMotion+ Color Protection Shampoo and Moisturizing Color Reflection Conditioner. Together, they keep dulling aggressors at bay with a boost of antioxidants, while keeping hair softer, smoother and stronger.
3. Top Up the Tones Between Appointments
If your client’s blue and pink hair is starting to fade, they can apply color-depositing conditioners, which top up the tone at home until the next appointment rolls around. Recommend they try the Color Fresh Mask, which features both a Blue and a Pink shade. All they have to do is apply the right color to the right section of clean, damp hair, and allow it to develop for 10 minutes. Simple.
