Approximately 75% of women color their hair in some form and you’re probably one of them. If so, chances are you can use a little help every now and then. Maybe you’ve missed a color appointment or are trying to stretch out the time between appointments to save a little cash. Maybe you’ve got better things to do with your time than be a slave to your roots every few weeks. Maybe you spend a lot of time outdoors and are looking to prevent the color fade that takes place due to the elements, or maybe your hair loses its luster between colorings and you want your locks to look rich day in and day out.
To help keep your hair rich and vibrant 24/7 you’ll want to install a filtered shower head to remove harsh chemicals like chlorine which can speed up color fade and lead to drier locks, too. You should also consider a styling product with sunscreen to protect your hair from the damaging elements.
If you’re looking to hide roots, extend your highlights, make sparse strands seem lusher or brighten and refresh your color, these are the products that will help you do just that:
Color Wow Root Cover Up ($34.50) temporarily colors roots and can even be used to touch up or add temporary highlights. This waterproof formula stays put when you sleep, swim and sweat but shampoos out easily so it’s the ideal way to touch up your hair and forget about it. It’s highly pigmented and has reflective particles so it looks completely natural, multidimensional and blends seamlessly. To cover your roots, use the small end of the brush, pulling hair flat and just press the brush down into the roots working your way down the hair shaft. Apply more powder to brush as needed. To extend the life of your highlights, use the side edge of the small brush and use the same pressing down motion.
Bumble and bumble Bb. Hair Powder ($36) is available in Blondish, Brownish, Black and White. This dry shampoo will refresh color as it absorbs excess oil and adds volume and texture to your strands. You’ll want to hold the can about a foot from your dry hair and spray thoroughly.
evo Fabulous Colour Intensifying Conditioner ($39.95) is the ideal way to give your color a boost between appointments. Besides getting a color refresh, it detangles without weighing hair down, adds shine and nourishes dull, dry strands in need of repair in as little as 3 minutes. There’s also a full range of shades to choose from. The Platinum Blonde helps remove yellow tones so you get a clean blonde tone. The Light Beige shade helps you achieve a light beige tone. You can also choose Caramel, Copper, Purple-Red, Mahogany and Chestnut.
