We think there are few things in life more gorgeous than radiant, shiny brunette hair. Instead of the blondes taking all the spotlight, we thought we’d come up with three sure-fire tips to keep your dark locks looking lovely – all year round!
Use products that defend your hair against UV rays as well as chemical and heat damage as they lead to dull looking hair. Applying a thermal protector before using heat tools creates a barrier against damage.
TRY: Kérastase Résistance Sérum Thérapiste, $46, Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray, $9.29.
To put life and strength into your locks, try a deep conditioning hair mask. For shine, but a product with both moisturising and mild protein properties.
TRY: Davines Minu Hair Mask, $39.50, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Masque, $11.19
KEEP IT FRESH
In the shower, use a colour-protecting shampoo and conditioner that will nourish instead of stripping the hair of it’s natural oils.
TRY: L’Oreal Professionnel série expert Vitamino Color A.Ox Colour Radiance Protection & Perfecting Shampoo, $29.50 and Conditioner, $28.50 – Both gently eliminate residue and protect colour radiance while enhancing shine.
DID YOU KNOW?
DIY Trick: A vinegar rinse will make your hair gleam! Combine 3/4 cups vinegar with 1/4 cup water, then add 4 drops lavender oil and 1 drop peppermint oil. Wash and towel-dry your hair first, and then pour the mixture over your head. Leave for two minutes and rinse. No need to wash it with shampoo and conditioner — the oils will hide the icky vinegar smell. – Seventeen.com
