Musing and happenings from our salons with tips and tricks thrown in!
Pick the right products
There’s a reason we recommend salon professional shampoos and conditioners for colour treated hair. We know they’re more expensive than what you pick up at your local Superdrug, but trust us, they are so worth it. You’re spending money on your colour so you may as well look after it and make sure it lasts.

We stock Redken Color Extend Shampoo and Conditioner in the salon so you can grab it after your appointment.
Skip the hair wash day (if you can)
When you wash your hair less, your colour lasts longer. If you can go a day or two between hair washes, your colour will thank you. Save your locks between washes with a little dry shampoo at your roots.
Turn down the heat
A hot shower opens up your cuticle releasing colour and moisture. It’s sad, we know, but turning the temperature down in the shower when you’re washing your hair will make your colour last much longer. We’re not saying you need to stand in a cold shower, just wash your hair as cool as you can.
Conditioner is your friend
Smooth on a deep conditioning mask once a week to keep your locks hydrated and healthy. In a previous blog we explain how to use coconut oil to condition your hair to keep it looking fab.
Avoid hot tools
Hot tools such as hair dryers, straighteners and curling tongs speed up the process of colour fading. We suggest avoiding them for the first week after your appointment if you can. When you are applying heat to your hair, be sure to use a heat protection product as this will protect your hair and help reduce colour fade.
In short, if you want your colour to look fabulous long after you’ve left the salon, look after it. Avoid chemicals and heat where possible as these will speed up the process of your colour fading. But most importantly, have fun with your new hair!
At lk hair we love to keep people up to date, either with a text message/email before to remind you of an upcoming appointment or sometimes a quick question about your experience at the salon. We hope you enjoy using our services and please always feel free to let us have your thoughts.
