Proper Hair Care Routine for Balayage
- Invest in sulfate-free shampoos and colour-safe conditioners to prevent colour fading.
- Limit washing your hair to a few times a week, and use cold water for rinsing, which helps seal the cuticle and lock in colour.
Protecting Balayage from Sun and Heat
- Shield your hair from UV rays with UV-protectant hair products.
- Consider stylish hats or scarves for added protection when spending time in direct sunlight.
- When using heat styling tools, apply a heat protectant and use the lowest heat setting necessary to style your hair.
Regular Trims and Touch-Ups
- Schedule trims and toner every 6-8 weeks to remove split ends and maintain the style.
- Consult your stylist for touch-ups every 6-12 weeks to refresh the colour and ensure a seamless blend.
- Trust a professional for colour touch-ups to avoid damage.
- Balayage is known for its low-maintenance look, so avoid excessive colouring or lightening.
Proper Post-Wash Care
- Gently towel-dry your hair to avoid roughing up the cuticle.
- Apply leave-in conditioners or hair oils to maintain moisture and shine.
- Use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush to prevent breakage and preserve your colour.
Balayage-Specific Products and Treatments
- Explore toning masks or glazes to refresh your colour between salon visits.
- Consider salon treatments like glosses or colour refreshers for added vibrancy.
