Color-Treated Hair? Here’s What to Ask For During Your Next Salon Visit
At the start of the New Year, I finally fulfilled the desire I had for months to take the ombre plunge and dye my naturally pitch black hair a vibrant red. I did it. And I loved it. But when I saw streaks of red dye dripping down the sides of my bathtub (scary, much?) even past the first few washes, I was skeptical about the quality — knowing red is a notoriously difficult color to maintain on black hair. I was already using shampoo and conditioner for color-treated hair, and I thought to myself, maybe these things don’t work? I then learned about the ColorProof brand and had my perception changed.
Once I started using ColorProof products, I saw virtually no dye being washed out in the shower. It’s now been over 3 months since I was in the salon, and I’ve far surpassed the “one month mark” that I was told I should come back to get the color touched up. While there has been fading that is natural to the red-on-black situation, I’m happy with the results and am confident that ColorProof really helped prolong the life of my original dye job. I’ll take a once every three months touch-up over a once a month touch-up any day!
ColorProof products are sold exclusively in authorized salons and spas across the country, so you know it is “pro” quality. Here are the gems I’ve been using the past few months that I recommend you ask for during your next salon visit!
