Achieve your best Fall Haircolor
Trends come and go, however healthy-glossy hair is here to stay. When the leaves start to change to those beautiful warm tones so should your haircolor. Now I'm not saying you have to go from Platinum blonde to a firey red, but you should consider shifting your tone slightly to something a bit more saturated. Doing so will not only make your hair look shiny and healthy but it will also compliment your now paler skintone and Fall wardrobe.
Here are a few ways to achieve your best haircolor this Fall...

Your highlights have most likely faded along with the long summer nights. Have your stylist choose a richer tone at your current level or one level deeper. If you're nervous about glossing everything deeper ask your stylist to gloss your base only instead. This gives you a "root smudge" or "color melt" effect. Overall glossing aka toning or glazing is a minimal commitment as it is not a permanent color formula. Glosses gradually fade in 4-8 weeks. The longevity depends on how frequently you shampoo and other variables I will mention below.

Everywhere you go this season will contribute to the dehydration of your hair. From your car heat, to your steaming hot showers, and to your backyard bonfire your haircolor is going to take a beating. When your hair is dry it becomes prone to static and brittle which can result in unwanted breakage. Be proactive and invest in a professional grade deep conditioning treatment to use weekly . Pick a day of the week to commit to pampering your hair and stick to it.

If you're a flat iron addict don't expect to see your color stick around for too long. Daily use of hot tools will assist your color to fade without consistent use of heat protection. My favorite is Davines' MELU shield. Keratin treatments are also great for smoothing unruly textures, locking in new haircolor, strengthening, and help cut your heat styling time down significantly.
