Musing and happenings from our salons with tips and tricks thrown in!
In the salon we often get asked questions from people considering changing their hair colour. Here are the top seven you should consider before your trip to the salon.
Book a consultation
Tea and advice is always free at LK Hair so book a consultation before booking your appointment to talk about the style and colour you want to go for. We can talk you through how long your desired look will take and the best way to achieve it. Just get in touch to book a consultation.
Bring pictures – of what you like and what you don’t like
Showing us pictures of your desired look helps us to understand what colour and style you want to go for, and what you want to avoid. We can advise you how that particular style and colour would look on you.
How often do you want to visit the salon?
It’s important to decide how often you want to colour your hair and how much maintenance your colour will require. If you don’t want to be doing your roots every few weeks, tell your stylist and they will suggest colours and techniques that require less maintenance.
Use a conditioning treatment
Apply a conditioning treatment at least a few days before your appointment to moisturise your hair and prepare it for the colour process. Healthy hair will take on your hair colour and and keep it vibrant, so always look after your locks! We recommend an oil treatment every couple of weeks to keep strands moisturised. We have lots of tips on our blog about how to keep your hair healthy.
Washing your hair
Avoid washing your hair the day of your colour so that you don’t strip away the natural oils in your hair, this will help give a more even result when it is coloured. When you do wash your hair, use a clarifying shampoo to remove build up from products.
If you are worried about the colouring process damaging your hair, ask for an Olaplex treatment, it helps to protect and repair your hair. Read more about the miracle treatment here.
Avoid box dyes at all costs
If you want your hair coloured, do it safely and visit a professional. Box dyes can damage your hair and can leave traces of the damage for years afterwards.
