Make Your Toner Last For Longer
All you beautiful bombshells know the struggle of maintaining that perfect hair hue between salon visits. But worry not! We've got your back, or rather, your hair. Get ready to discover the top secrets for making your hair toner last longer while ensuring your tresses stay fabulously vibrant.
1. Turn Down the Heat
Love those steamy showers? They might feel heavenly, but hot water opens up your hair cuticles, causing your precious toner to wash out faster. To make your toner last, rinse your hair with lukewarm or cool water, which seals the cuticle and locks in the toner.
2. Colour-Safe Products are Your Best Friends
Maintaining that chic colour requires a bit more care than your standard shampoo and conditioner routine. Invest in high-quality, sulfate-free, colour-safe hair products. These beauties are specially formulated to gently cleanse your hair without stripping away the toner.
3. Shampoo Less, Condition More
The more you wash, the faster your it will fade. Try to extend the time between your shampoo sessions and opt for dry shampoos for those in-between days. When you do wash, remember to condition your hair every time. It helps seal your hair cuticles and prolong the life of your toner.
4. Embrace the Power of UV Protection
Just as your skin needs protection from the sun, your hair does too. UV rays can fade your hair colour and speed up the process of your toner washing out. Use hair care products with UV protection or wear a hat when the sun's at its peak to protect your locks.
5. The Magic of Colour-Refreshing Products
Apart from regular colour-safe products, consider incorporating colour-refreshing or toning products into your routine. These products deposit a small amount of pigment onto your hair, helping to maintain the vibrancy of your toner between salon appointments.
6. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Hydrated hair holds onto toner for longer. Use hair masks, like FUL's Intense Moisture Hair Mask, and deep conditioning treatments regularly to keep your locks well-nourished. Just like a well-watered plant flourishes, so will your hair.
7. Skip the DIY
Finally, leave toner application to the pros. It can be tempting to try and tone your hair at home, but incorrect application and removal can lead to patchy results and damage to your hair. Trust your stylist; they know how to ensure the toner penetrates your hair evenly and is removed at the right time for optimal results.
Remember, ladies, with these clever tricks up your sleeve, you can make your toner last longer, keeping your hair looking just as luscious and vibrant as the day you stepped out of the salon. Happy toning!
