Q&A: Coloured Hair

It’s no secret that we love colour at Supercuts, but we’re often asked how to keep coloured hair looking fresh, healthy and cooler for longer. Here we’ll answer some of the most common queries about coloured hair, and give you tips on keeping it looking sharp.

Q. How do I keep my hair colour vibrant for as long as possible?

Colour care shampoos are a must for coloured hair, especially for copper and red shades which can fade quickly, or for blondes which can get brassy. Wella Professionals Colour Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner keep colour looking fresh and bold, while still cleansing hair like your favourite shampoos. For blondies, we love Wella Professionals Colour Recharge Cool Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner – guaranteed to keep you bright and brass free!

If your colour is looking dull between your regular touch-up appointments, why not give our Glossing Service a go? It restores shine and pigment to your shade, prolonging the vibrant look you love for longer.

Q. My coloured hair dries out easily, especially in hot weather – help!

Lots of the latest colour ranges carry products with built in UV protection, and SPFs. Yes, sun protection isn’t just for your skin, it’s also really important for keeping your hair protected from bright sunlight and harsh weather conditions in the Summer. We recommend using Wella Professionals Enrich all Summer, to repair and protect hair to leave it full of vitality.

All year round, you should use a rich conditioner to keep your hair’s bounce, shine, and manageability. Coloured hair LOVES moisture, so give it a boost with regular deep-conditioning treatments and moisturising products like Wella Oil Reflections.

Q. Can I use heat stylers on my lightened hair?

If you’re looking after your hair’s health, then you can use blowdryers and heat styling tools in sensible amounts, whatever your colour. Lightenedhair can be prone to dryness and damage, so make sure to condition well before using harsh styling techniques. Always make sure to use a heat protection spray before curling or straightening, too, minimising the damage to your hair in the long term! Like Wella Thermal Image.
