No matter your hair colour, we all want to ensure our locks are looking fresh! When it comes to brunette tones they do require some care and attention to maintain their richness and beauty. Check out some of our top tips on how to maintain rich brunette hair that looks fabulous all year round.
1. Use Colour-Safe Hair Products:
One of the keys to maintaining rich brunette hair is to use hair products that are specifically formulated for colour-treated hair. Regular shampoos and conditioners can strip away the colour and cause your hair to fade. Opt for products that are specifically designed to protect and preserve hair colour and contain ingredients like keratin, argan oil, and UV filters, which can help to lock in the colour and keep your hair looking vibrant. We're currently loving ORI Lab Restore Cleanse & ORI Lab Restore Condition!
2. Limit Heat Styling:
Excessive heat styling can cause damage to your hair and fade the colour faster. Try to limit the use of heat styling tools such as flat irons, curling irons, and blow dryers. When you do use them, apply a heat protectant spray to your hair first to minimize damage. Instead of heat styling, opt for air-drying or using heatless styling techniques like the Mermade Heatless Curl Kit to achieve your desired hairstyle. Hot tip: Use something nourishing before and after styling to keep your hair looking shiny! One of our go-tos is the Moroccanoil Original Treatment.
3. Deep Condition Regularly:
Keeping your brunette hair hydrated and nourished is essential to maintain its rich colour. Incorporate deep conditioning treatments into your haircare routine at least once a week to provide your hair with the extra moisture and nutrients it needs. Look for products that are specifically formulated for colour-treated hair that help to strengthen and protect your hair while preserving the colour. The NAK Hair Colour Masque in Coco is a great option for brunette hair to hydrate, nourish and keep your colour looking fresh!
4. Schedule Regular Salon Appointments:
Regular salon appointments are crucial for maintaining rich brunette hair. Schedule touch-up appointments with your stylist every 4-6 weeks to maintain the vibrancy of your hair colour. Your stylist can also provide you with additional treatments like glosses or toners to keep it looking fresh.
5. Avoid Harsh Hair Care Practices:
Harsh hair care practices like rough towel drying, tight hairstyles, and frequent brushing can cause damage to your hair and lead to colour fading. Instead, be gentle with your hair by using a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt to blot dry, avoiding tight hairstyles that pull on your hair, and using a wide-toothed comb or a detangling brush to gently comb through your hair. If you haven't already - make sure you try the Ugly Swan Scream-Free Detangling Brush - no pulling or tugging helps to prevent split ends, breakage, & frizz.
