WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS IN THE HAIR AND WHAT SHOULD WE AVOID?Care your Hair
Baby light, balayage, California wicks, hair contouring … The world of coloring is booming. The trends begin their journey in the red carpets and end up in the hairdresser of your street, but there are some trends that NEVER go out of style. We are not talking about the typical wicks (which too), but about the delicate reflections.
This permanent coloring technique tries to lighten certain areas of your hair to show a contrast with your original tone. They are much more natural than traditional wicks and, as natural beauty is a trend, we tell you everything you need to know to take care of your reflexes. Say no to the orange effect!
The light for your hair
The name of ‘reflections’ is given because the effect that is obtained is like a sunbeam, but, sometimes, they can stay as if you had a lightning bolt, dry.
First of all, the first thing you have to know is that the reflections are made on natural hair (it is a recommendation, calm color lovers!). There are many nuances in the reflections, but very few tones, so if you have a dark brown, go to the Sunlight technique!
Mistakes you should NOT make
What shampoo do I use? Conditioner or mask? Does the sun brighten hair more? If you’ve felt identified with all these questions, don’t worry, because we have the answer to your headaches.
With these simple tips that we give you, you can prevent the reflections of your dreams from becoming your worst nightmare.
Healthy hair VS damaged hair
One of the biggest mistakes we make when choosing reflexes is to do it with damaged hair as a basis. As we said before, the highlights should be made in hair with its natural color. In addition, it is important to cut our hair and finish off the split ends before making this type of coloration, although this should apply to all colorations. Ahem, ahem!
Enemies nº 1: sun, heat, chlorine …
Have you ever heard someone say ‘I have run out of green hair’? No, it’s not an exaggeration of your drama queen friend. The chlorine in the pool can cause us to have green hair if you have any color. But not only the chlorine, the sun itself, if you do not use a good protective for dyed hair, but it also affects your hair in a very drastic way, leaving it in a very orange tone.
Another problem that brings us upside down is the dryness of these permanent dyes. Therefore, we recommend avoiding the use of dryers and irons or, at least, alternate them: one-day dryer, but do not iron your hair or air dry and then iron it …
Products suitable for your coloring
Another basic mistake is not to use specific products for dyed hair. A normal shampoo does not fix the color, nor does a mask nourish the depth required for a hair with highlights.
Therefore, we recommend using Olia Super Matting, a Garnier treatment to tint the orange effect. In addition, its formula enriched with floral oils of natural origin will leave your hair soft and with the color you have always wanted!
