Balayage highlights come in all kinds of styles – from simply sun-kissed to a full on transformation. No matter which you choose, there are a few tips and tricks to keep your balayage highlights. Read on to see how to maintain your balayage highlights!
Avoid washing your hair after your balayage highlight service for at least 72 hours. This allows your hair’s cuticle to fully close and the toner can lock in. Less frequent washes will help your highlights to stay on tone for longer, keeping those brassy tones at bay. Dry shampoo and messy buns can be lifesavers!
We love the Innersense Hydrating Mask as a weekly treatment. It restores amino acids and proteins that your hair needs to stay healthy. Healthy hair always lightens the best! You can use this hair mask once a week in place of your usual conditioner to keep your hair healthy for future lightening services. Let sit for at least 5 minutes for the full repairing effect!
Balayage highlights are wonderful for clients that want to be low maintenance with their hair. Usually most clients will only get highlighted once or twice a year. But a quick color melt service is a great way to let yourself go longer between lightening services. A color melt service uses demi-permanent color to blend your natural roots into the highlights. It also kicks brass and adds shine, making you look like you spent the whole day in the salon instead of just an hour!
