During our feature ‘Ask Jason’ we received some questions about colour that we have handed over to the colour team to answer for you.
Q. I have heard many times that colour will take better to dirty hair, is this true?
A. This is a good question, and one we hear many times, but it is false. A build up of natural oils, product and pollutants can actually create a barrier and prevent the colour from penetrating deep enough into the hair, which could cause uneven coverage, a patchy result or limited grey coverage. If you think about painting a canvas, you would need it to be clean and oil free so that nothing interferred with the paint.
Q. I love my blonde highlights when they are done, however the last week before I am due to get them done i find they look a bit dull. I don’t feel that they need doing a week earlier, is there anything i can do.
A. The most important thing to think about here is shampoo. Highlights can dull or take on more of a yellow tone after a few weeks, this can be due to pollution, hard water or product build up. The best thing to do is use a shampoo that is designed for blonde hair, these usually have a slight blue or purple colour to them, these tones will neutralise any warmth that has crept in. One of our recommendations is the Pureology Perfect 4 Platinum range. Another great tip is to use a deep clensing or purifing shampoo when you find it is looking dull, this will work to remove any product build up and free radicals.
