My original hair colour as you’ll know was a light brown colour so it wasn’t that hard for me to get to a really bright colour as my hair was already light. I got my hair done by the amazing people at Belle and Belle and Blackley, Julie did such an amazing job on my hair ive never been this happy with a colour this bright
First off we had to lighten up my hair because if you want really bright and vibrant colours unless your hair is blonde you won’t be able to reach the level of brightness that you want. Julie used a low strength of lightener because my hair was already quite light and tends to lift really easily. After the lightener was left on my hair until it pulled up to a pale yellow shade it was washed off and cleansed and then the next step was to add the Elumen Prep to my hair to get it ready for the colour.
Its been about 3 weeks now since ive had this done and ive had no fading at all its as bright as the day i got it down which is pretty amazing because you’ll know if you get your hair done this bright usually it fades away or even fades into a different colour entirely.
I think its really important to also take care of your hair more so when its like this because its been bleached up and colour so your hair will be impaired and not as healthy as it was before so there are a few products i use to help return my hair to what it was before.
I use a number of different things from shampoos to styling products. First of all you’re going to have to look for either a colour safe shampoo and conditioner or one with no sulphates also don’t use any clarifying shampoos as they will strip your colour from your hair which is not good. I use the Ojon Rare Blend Infusion Shampoo and Moisture Therapy Conditioner, both will help to repair the hair and give it back the moisture lightened hair usually lacks. It really depends on how I feel I will either use my beloved mask from Ojon, which has never let me down before or a new addition to my routine which is the Olaplex No3 Mask which is said to deliver amazing results if only used it once so far so I can really say anything about it but it does seem to leave my hair feeling better. Finally, I use the label. m Protein Spray which is basically hair food this again helps to repair the hair, giving it all the nutrients it needs, its also really good for evening out the porosity of your hair.
