Colour Protection from Winter Aggressors

It is such a novelty now to have the luxury of a salon visit, it is important to protect your investment. Although we have touched on this topic quite recently, colour fade and lack of vibrancy and shine can be a real nuisance for the colder, harsher winter months, and so is worth visiting again.

Although some people embraced their natural hair after lockdown it is safe to say most women still colour their hair, be that with blending babylights, or a vivid, eye-catching fashion shade. So, of course it is important to make the absolute best of these efforts and keep your vision, and your stylists’ skills, as you intended; looking beautiful, bright, and full of shine. So, in addition to our previous colour in winter blog, below I have listed several haircare options for all types of coloured hair. Enjoy.

This gift set is the ideal match for those with coloured hair, who struggle with frizz. The damp Irish conditions we endure are less than ideal for maintaining sleek and sexy hair, and 20 minutes after leaving your house the wet misty weather can make your hair frizzy, dull, and double the size. The frizz fighting hero here is the Color Wow Dream Coat which is a heat activated anti-humectant, repels water molecules to seal in your sassy style.

It’s the Color Wow shampoo and conditioner which will champion your long-lasting colour though, with a sulfate and silicone free formula. It will illuminate your colour, protect the colour molecule, and reveal stunning shine. Suitable for all hair types just select your optimal conditioner for your hair thickness, and reap the rewards of healthy, glossy colour from root to tip, with zero product residue.

Pureology Hydrate and Pureology Hydrate Sheer

I spend a lot of time wittering on about how important hydration is throughout the winter months, but that’s because it is vital to develop and maintain the health of your hair. Pureology have hit the nail on the head with the Hydrate family, not only does is weightlessly nourish your hair, it also protects your gorgeous colour from fade and damage. This concentrated, 100% vegan formula defends against harmful external factors, adds moisture, revitalises your hair, and is suitable for medium to thick hair types.

If you have a finer hair type but require these qualities from your haircare Pureology have also created the weightless Hydrate Sheer for  fine to medium hair types.

Within the Christmas Gift Set you also receive a full sized Pureology Colour Fanatic Spray leave-in conditioner which offers environmental and heat protection, detangling, shine, and hydration.
