How to Care for Brunette Hair
Brunette hair, and how to care for it; there’s more to it than you might think. Keeping that depth, radiance and richness will bring out the best of this hair colour. We consulted with our expert colourists to bring you our professional top tips for brilliant brunette hair care.
Fresh not faded
We know that just-coloured feeling - and we want to help it last. Freshly coloured brown hair can fade fast, but not with our ammonia-free Miracle System. Clinically proven to deliver stronger, softer, shinier hair through colouring, with 38% less hair colour fade. In a range of customizable shades, and accompanied by master hair colourists on hand to advise you on which shade and how to apply, our colours really are here to share the brunette hair colour love.
Stick to your roots
Grey streaks in brunette hair? Can be striking and sexy, and we’re here for it. Not for you? Sadly, any unwanted greys tend to show up brightly against brown hair; but not to worry, we’re literally the experts in handling this. To make sure your brunette stays looking natural, keep permanent hair colour application to regrowth and avoid overlapping with previously coloured hair. For the best results wait until you have at least 1cm of greys showing. To disguise greys in the meantime, invest in a Root Touch-Up Concealer. Simply pump, paint and blow-dry in our semi-permanent Blending Brush for 100% grey coverage that lasts up to 3 washes.
It’s worth investing in a sulphate-free shampoo designed to prevent hair colour fade, like our Frizzy Brunette Shampoo. Our cleansing care contains an abundance of antioxidant rich natural ingredients, as well as UV filters, to keep your brown hair vibrant and rich. Remember to avoid over-washing, and when you do wash, to massage your scalp gently and don’t use water that is too hot.
Masks can work miracles
Building a weekly treatment hair mask into your routine can transform your strands from dull to dazzling. Our award-winning Miracle Mask locks in hair colour, prevents fade, and maintains condition and shine for a brilliant brunette. Use once a week on damp, shampooed hair and leave in for a minimum of 5 minutes, then rinse out. Ideal for all hair types, shades, and textures, this hair mask really is a no-brainer. Honestly, your hair will thank you.
Keep it Glossy
What do you get if you cross a deeply conditioning treatment mask with an expertly-formulated semi-permanent hair colour? A Josh Wood Colour Gloss. Refresh your hair colour at home with our Shade Shot Gloss, our favourite multi-tasker that works to keep your tone vibrant whilst deeply hydrating the hair. Looking for brass-free brunette hair? Try Smoky Brunette. Wanting to restore warmth and richness? Try Chestnut Brunette. Or, for a buttery neutral brunette try Caramel Gloss. These glosses are designed to last up to 6 washes, and can be used as a home hair colouring treatment in between salon visits. If you’re feeling more adventurous, why not experiment with some subtle red tones in your brown hair? With options like Berry Brunette or Rose Brunette, your brunette colour palette just got even more gorgeous.
