Beauty Notes: Hair Color Care

December 7

Range: Kerastase Chroma range
There has been so much buzz on the cleansing conditioners and ‘Anti-shampoos’ at the moment and wanted to try it from the Kerastase Chroma range but they sadly don’t have it in the region. As an avid Kerastase regular, I decided to try their Chroma sensitive range (I swear by the mask!). I have been using the bain shampoo, conditioner with a bit of leave in conditioner. The products really help prolong the colour, gentle and doesn’t strip off colour. The scent isn’t my favourite out of other Kerastase ranges but if you colour your hair, you really do need to invest into this range.

Conditioner: Leonor Greyl Creme Regeneratrice
For a conditioner, I suggest you check out Leonor Greyl’s Creme Regenatrice. Conditioner for coloured, dry and damaged hair – softens hair without leaving your hair heavy. All the heat styling and ombre colour really damages the hair, so this comes in handy in between mask uses.

Omega mask: Rahua Omega 9 Hair Mask
As my hair is quite thick, masks are a lot more vitalto me than conditioners. I’m really loving this one by Rahua. 100% natural, rainforest grown and gluten free, the ingredients – quinoa protein strengthens, omega 9 molecules to heal and fortify, lavender to relax. It really is a great salon treatment that can be used at home, and definitely made my colour a lot more vibrant.

Shampoo: Redken Color extend magnetics shampoo
With all the hair treatments around, women tend to look for sulfate free shampoo. Here’s a Sulfate free suggestion if you colour your hair – Redken’s Color extend magnetics shampoo. The product uses Redken’s IPN technology and amino-ions to help strengthen coloured hair. The range also includes a conditioner, mask and treatment spray.

Drugstore buy: L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil
The better priced one of them all, yet still does the job. This L’Oreal oil can be used on on hair before washing to nourish dried out hair (which is what I do) or before blow drying to protect the hair. Smells lovely, and is quite light weight on the hair, it’s great at making the hair look and feel smooth.

Mask: Davines Alchemic Conditioner
It’s very easy for ombre hair to eventually turn brassy, so your job with your hair routine is to make sure it doesn’t, by using the right products. A lot of women I meet swear by and recommend Violet shampoos but I recently started using the Davines Alchemic range in Silver – which is great for light hair colour. Smells like baby powder, comes in the most beautiful purple shade and really brightens the hair.
