Enjoy Spring & LOVE Your Hair with these Easy Hair Color Tips!

Spring is a perfect opportunity to brighten up your look with a little hair color. Whether you’re going on the lighter side, by adding highlights, or getting bold with a hot new color, it’s always in style to keep your hair bright and shiny. With the right hair care routine, you can embrace beautiful color and still enjoy healthy, vibrant hair.

Lighten Up

Spring can often inspire blondes to go blonder, or brunettes to embrace shades of caramel, cocoa, or other soft highlights. But with lighter color, can often come extra damage. To keep your hair healthy, it’s important to do weekly conditioning treatments. To protect from damage from color, be sure to find a conditioner that’s rich in protein to help rebuild hair structure. For best results, apply conditioner on towel dried hair; hit it with the blowdryer for thirty seconds and wrap in a towel; rinse with cool water after 10 to 15 minutes.

Brighten Up

This spring, vibrant hair color is a definite hit. But nothing is worse than when your bright, beautiful color turns dull and drab after a few washes. Be sure to keep color bright by paying closer attention to your hair washing routine. When shampooing hair, try to keep the water cooler, as hot water opens the cuticle and causes color to wash out more quickly. Also, using color protect shampoo and conditioner is a definite must! If you have all-over bright color, you can try a color enhancing shampoo, that actually deposits color back into your hair while you wash.

Freshen Up

If you’re soaking up spring at the beach or pool, you’re skin may be glowing, but you may notice your hair color looking duller. Freshen up your color with a glaze to add shine. You can opt for a glaze with color, to enhance your natural locks, or go for a subtle change of color (add a hint of cherry to dark brown hair), a clear glaze is another option just to add shine. Ask your hairstylist about the benefits of a glaze–and you may get hooked even after spring is over. (Redken Shades EQ; Paul Mitchell PM Shines)

Change it Up

If your blonde is taking on a shade of gold, or your once honey colored locks are looking drab, a toner is a great option to make blonde hair look healthier and richer. It’s amazing how a subtle tonal change can turn a dull complexion into radiant skin. The best part? A toner can be done at the shampoo bowl in 15 minutes or less! Consult with your stylist on whether a toner is the right option for your hair.

Beautiful, vibrant hair isn’t just for hair models and celebrities. Your hair can be healthy, bold, and shiny with just a few extras in your beauty arsenal. Enjoy spring, and love your hair with these easy tips for healthy hair and beautiful hair color.
