The biggest issue for coloured hair especially in summer is fading.
There are many contributing factors including sun exposure, heat styling, incorrect home care, and of course the current condition of your hair. However, this is a concern that can be easily overcome provided you have the right information and products on hand.
Pay particular attention to how your hair feels before a colour. Does it feel fragile or dry with a rough texture? This may be a sign that your hair is porous. Porous hair is hair that has an open cuticle or has previously been damaged, it will have little or no shine. A closed cuticle layer is ideal for long-lasting, brilliant colour, enhanced shine and a soft, smooth feel.
NAK Inner Strength is the go-to product for colour prep. Inner Strength is a brilliant leave-in protein treatment and body builder, that primes the hair and balances out the porosity for an even colour result from roots to ends. This will directly improve the lasting ability of your colour.
NAK Colour Fix is a leave-in colour locking treatment that will reduce colour fade and increase shine. By using a Colour Fix you will instantly smooth and seal down the cuticle layer, therefore locking in colour pigment and reducing colour fade.
If you have extremely fine, flat, limp or oily hair then Colour Fix is the answer to your prayers. Being a weightless formula the product won’t make your roots oily; in fact, it will give you more volume and lift.
Simple and easy to use, just turn the cap clockwise to activate the two phase formula and shake well. Then turn cap anti-clockwise to open nozzle, sprinkle evenly throughout your hair. Use after every shampoo and condition for optimum colour longevity.
Ask your Salon7one stylist at your next colour appointment what they would recommend for your hair. Colour Fix in salon treatments are available at the time of your colour appointment with additional take home product for $6.95.
There are three to choose from, so which one is for you?
Colour Fix Normal is perfect for all types of colours; it softens and adds moisture but most importantly locks that cuticle down to reduce fade.
Colour Fix Blonde has all the same benefits as Colour Fix Normal but with added violet pigment to neutralise and control unwanted warmth and is also lovely for grey hair – natural or toned.
Colour Fix Blonde Plus, yep you guessed it – all the same benefits as the above but we’ve pumped up the pigment and added blue/violet pigments. This means extra toning on brassy, yellow tones.
Tip: Colour Fix Blonde and Blonde Plus aren’t just for blonde hair. Black, blue black and violet colours will also benefit from the added blue and violet tones.
