As the temperature begins to increase, many of our clients start thinking about lightening their locks. However, aggressive chemical lightening can seriously compromise the health of your hair. To avoid damaging your hair, here is our guide to lightening your hair this summer.

Lightening Dark Hair
To avoid damaging your hair, lightening dark hair should be a gradual process. Lightening by one or two shades at each appointment will mean you’re left with better longevity of colour, as the condition of your hair will be left intact.

Lightening Light Hair
A great technique to refresh already naturally light hair is ‘babylights’. These are super fine highlights around the face and through the part line. Babylights look very natural and provide your colour with a lift while creating depth by maintaining the low lights of your natural colour.

Reds offers Olaplex, a premium hair treatment, as part of your colour service. Olaplex is designed specifically to protect and improve the strength and condition of colour-treated hair. Its unique formula multiplies bonds to make hair stronger and healthier, while your colour lasts longer, with more vibrancy – Ask your Reds stylist for details.

Because sun exposure can be just as damaging to your unprotected tresses as it is to your skin, it’s crucial for sun worshippers to think about regular sun protection for your hair. Make sure the products you regularly use have an SPF rating such as the Kerastase Soleil range. An at-home reconstructive masque once a week will maintain your hair’s condition and moisture levels and also help to maintain your colour. We love the Kérastase range, with a masque for every hair type.
