Why not try out some of the following ideas…
Home Hair Colour Advice
- Toners. There are plenty of toning shampoos you can recommend to help keep colour looking fresh.
- Over-washing. This is pretty standard advice for hair colour clients. Skipping a few hair washes can help preserve colour for longer.
- Use the correct shampoo. Use a colour-safe shampoo, but make sure they it is the correct one.
- Take a break. The truth is, sometimes our hair can actually benefit from a break from the chemicals in hair colour. Maybe now is the time to have a colour consultation catch-up with clients? Maybe grow some natural colour back in ready for a gorgeous new ombre look? Or maybe now is the perfect time to make that colour transition back to their natural shade?
- If you are feeling self conscious of root growth, maybe there are some easy hairdos. Head bands, braids and updos can help.
Home Hair Cutting Advice
- Stop heat styling. Swapping hair dryers, curling tongs and straighteners for air drying is top advice for maintaining hair at home. Breakages make ends look scraggly much quicker, so let hair rest for a while. For curls and frizz, a moisturising shampoo and smoothing serum can help out, or a hair scarf to keep untamed locks out of the way.
- Hair masks. Again, maintaining a healthy condition is essential for when a trim isn’t possible. Hair masks and hair oils to help treat your hair.
- Keep using Olaplex. If you had Olaplex treatment in the salon, you can maintain it at home with the Olaplex shampoo, conditioner, bonding oil and bond smoother.
Looking After Hair Extensions at Home
Depending on what type of extensions they are, they could need replacing anywhere between 4 weeks and 4 months.
It is never usually recommended that extensions be removed at home, as it can cause damage to the natural hair – particularly in the case of individual bonded extensions or sewn in wefts.
Tape-in extensions can sometimes be carefully removed at home with oil based products, but we wouldn’t recommend doing it by yourself.
Extension care process. Gentle regular brushing with a wide tooth comb, careful washing and conditioning are the best things you can do until you get your extensions replaced. Maybe keep them loosely tied back in a low ponytail with a scrunchie for minimal damage.
