Brown Hair Maintenance
Some of the struggles brunettes can endure are experiencing warm tones in the hair such as red or orange, due to the underlying pigment of the hair. Brunettes may also experience faster colour fade, especially in circumstances where a colour correction has been done to take the hair from blonde back to brown or black. Overall in either of these instances, we notice that the hair loses its vibrancy, starts to look dull, & lacks lustre. Finally, there are those couple weeks leading up to our next appointment where we wish we could conceal that regrowth!
Let’s look at some products that can help us to maintain these challenges right through until your next appointment.
The Redken Color Extend Brownlights is a blue pigmented color depositing shampoo & conditioner for brunettes that are prone to warmer tones in their hair. Blue pigments help to prevent & neutralize brassy, orange & red undertones. The sulfate free shampoo gently cleanses without stripping colour while the conditioner gently moisturizes. Together they are a progressive toning system to help prevent brass & maintain cooler tones in coloured, highlighted, & natural brown hair.
Davines AlchemicChocolate Shampoo & Conditioner help to intensify & illuminate shades of dark brown or black hair whether it is coloured or natural. The colour enhancing formula is sulfate, silicone, & paraben free, & directly deposits color into the hair without an activator. The Chocolate Conditioner includes hydrolyzed milk proteins to condition & protect, as well as Jojoba oil to add softness & shine.
Joico Color Infuse Brown Shampoo & Conditioner is formulated for light to medium brown hair & golden highlights. Alternate this color depositing shampoo & conditioner every other use with your regular shampoo & conditioner until your desired results are achieved. From there use as needed to maintain that radiance. For maximum intensity and penetration, leave on for five minutes before rinsing.
The Moroccanoil Color Depositing Mask in Cocoa is a great option to enhance vibrancy or extend your color in between salon visits. Suitable for light to dark brown hair, this temporary color treatment includes the benefits of a deep conditioning mask. Moroccanoil’s ArganID™, Amino Acid Blend, & Apricot Kernel Oil all work together to repair & strengthen, improve color retention, hydrate, detangle, & add shine! Distribute evenly & generously through shampooed towel-dried hair, leave on for 5-7 minutes depending on desired intensity, & rinse thoroughly.
Color WOW Root Cover Up is the perfect solution for root coverage in between root touch ups & comes in all shades. It covers greys, dark roots, & extends highlights without being stiff, sticky, or waxy. The brush creates a precise, no-mess application unlike root cover up sprays, & is even water resistant! With its very natural look, this product is perfect to fill in hairlines or any gaps to create a thicker look to the hair. Apply to dry hair with the brush by pressing into the roots starting at the scalp. Do not use a sweeping motion, & apply more powder as needed.
