Make your color last longer


Prep Your Hair Before Coloring

One to two days before a ‎color service, use a deep cleansing shampoo such as BC Deep Clean to remove styling product build-up. You might also want to use a deep-conditioning mask such as BC Color Freeze once a week to put hydration back in the hair; this will help keep color from fading after you switch up your hue.


Discover How to Protect Hair During Colour Services

Care in the context of colouring hair usually refers to condition of the hair; chemical over-processing, sun-exposure and health problems (to name a few) can result in hair that is over-porous, dry and brittle, and lacking elasticity.

The cause of over-porous hair is often due to excessive chemical applications damaging the surface and inner structure. For instance, over-lightened and bleached hair can lead to visible hair damage; hair can become rough and thin, dull and dry as well as spongy and matted when wet.

Up until now caring for hair during lightening, lifting and colour services has been a tricky task for colourists, but thanks to new innovations in technology Schwarzkopf Professional and FIBREPLEX we set  free from all limitations linked to hair condition – minimising hair breakage by up to 94%!

Always use a good quality shampoo and conditioner

Ideal for use in post-colour service and home maintenance such as BC Color Freeze Sulfate-Free Shampoo and BC Color Freeze Conditioner.

Avoid Hot Showers

Hot water doesn't only dry out your skin; it can decrease the life of your hair color.  The temperature opens up your cuticle, releasing your precious color—and moisture. For best results shampoo with BC Color Freeze then rinse with room-temp water, towel dry, condition with BC Color Freeze, then rinse with the coldest water you can stand to seal that cuticle shut, This will provide longer-lasting color, keeping your locks nice and hydrated while also you could use BC Sealed Ends to help eliminate split ends."

Wait to Wash Your Hair as Long as Possible

"I always have my clients not wash their hair after color for as long as they can go—at least 24 to 48 hours,"  When you do have to wash, opt for a gentle sulfate-free shampoo such as BC Color Freeze.

Try a Shower Filter
This will remove chemicals, chlorine, and minerals from your shower water,  Hard water strips your hair's color and natural oils; these filters minimize color rinsing down the drain.

Use a Thermal Protectant
