Brunette hair care

Like all colored hair, brunette strands require a little TLC to stay vibrant. Using a shampoo and conditioner that are specially formulated to protect hair color is a great start, but you should also be using leave-in conditioners and regular deep conditioners to keep your hair hydrated and strong.

Colored hair is more prone to dryness, which in turn makes it more susceptible to split and broken ends, so don't skip any trims! Removal is the only way to deal with damaged strands, and to prevent split ends from working their way further up the hair shaft.

Styling tips

1/ Add shine

Give your new hue some added shine with a glossy finishing spray such as Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. It will help to tame any flyaways while adding some extra light to your look.

2/ Get lasting curls

Any hair color looks amazing on curly locks, but if you don't have the natural kind, make sure you clip each piece of hair up to cool after curling it so the shape sets properly. Then, spritz your hair with plenty of hairspray, shake it all out, and spray again.
