MANY women are counting down the days until their hair appointment.
But in the run-up to your salon visit, there are a few things you could do to make things easier for you and your stylist.
Tom Smith, hairstylist and international creative color director at Evo Hair, explained that prep should start two weeks before your appointment — but only if you’re someone who uses toner or purple shampoo.
“Stop toning your hair at home two weeks before your appointment,” he told Glamourmagazine.co.uk.
“Purple shampoo or color-enhancing home toners are fantastic for keeping your color looking fresh in the salon, but let them wash out a bit before visiting your stylist so they have a clear view of where your hair is without them.”
If your appointment is only seven days away, use the Olaplex No. 3 cure.
“It’s a great way to improve the quality of your hair before your appointment,” said Tom.
“The healthier the hair, the more options we have with your color plan and the less we have to clip.”
It’s also worth detoxing your hair before your appointment by using a cleansing shampoo or mineral remover.
Color Wow’s Dream Filter is a good try.
Tom also clarified how your hair should be when you go to your appointment, and insisted stylists prefer to work with freshly washed tresses rather than slightly dirty tresses – despite the myth to suggest otherwise.
“Most stylists prefer to work with relatively clean hair — the exception being when you use a scalp bleaching service, where a small buildup of natural oils actually helps protect your scalp from irritation,” he explained.
