1. Pick the Right Shampoo For Their Hair Type
Gorgeous hair color deserves premium formulas to keep it locked down for longer, so make sure your client is using a salon-approved, color-kind shampoo to maintain their wet balayage. One of our favorites is ColorMotion+ Color Protection Shampoo, which is packed with antioxidants to shield strands from dulling pollutants. If they have a blonde balayage, a purple shampoo is also key to preventing brassy hair. Recommend they use INVIGO Blonde Recharge Cool Blonde Color Refreshing Shampoo once per week, leaving it on for around three minutes to nix any unwanted warmth.
2. Nourish Locks With a Hair Mask
Lightened lengths and ends need extra care to stay hydrated, so remind your client to treat their locks to a weekly hair mask. ColorMotion+ Structure+ Mask is perfect for nourishing color-treated hair, as it's packed with our WellaPlex bonding agent to keep strands smooth and strong. They should apply it to clean, towel-dried hair, leave it on for five minutes, then rinse thoroughly before styling locks as usual.
3. Apply Hair Sunscreen to Protect Color
UV rays can take a balayage from blonde to brassy over time, so make sure locks are protected from sun damage with a hard-working hair sunscreen. Suggest your clients try EIMI Glam Mist, which gives their mane a glossy glow, while shielding it from the effects of humidity and UV rays. It's perfect for a year-round dose of shine.
