Protecting coloured hair with Shu Uemura Art of Hair

Dyeing your hair can be one of the most uplifting experiences – you immediately feel different/younger/prettier/polished… but not many of us could say the same thing about maintaining the shade!
Thankfully, protection is a thing of ease and luxury with Shu Uemura Art of Hair. Melissa spoke with their experts to glean a couple of hairdressers’ colour care tips!

What are the secrets to protecting colour?

To protect your colour we would suggest the Color Lustre Shades Reviving Balms. Formulated with a high content of fatty acids and linseed oil, the vibrancy and reflect of hair colour is preserved and refreshed.

Which is the best product for me?

There are four shades in the Color Lustre Shades Reviving family – Cool Blonde, Radiant Chestnut, Cool Brown and Golden Blonde. Identify which category you fall into using the following guide:
Cool Blonde: Ideal for preserving whiter, ash-based blondes.
Radiant Chestnut: Ideal for use on coppery or mahogany shades.
Cool Brown: Idea for reviving colder, pure brunettes.
Golden Blonde: Ideal for refreshing warm, red-based blondes.

How often should I use Color Lustre?

Use between colour applications to control the accuracy of the reflection and to revive sun-affected colour. We recommend alternating Color Lustre with your normal Shu Uemura hair treatment, so about every second week – although listen to your hair, some strands can take more/less usage.

What are the usage directions?

1. Dollop a small amount of Color Lustre into your palms and apply all over to clean, towel-dried hair. 2. Leave on for 5-10 minutes.
3. Rinse thoroughly.

What customers are saying

“This product is wonderful at pulling the brassiness out and it conditions my hair wonderfully. I think it’s worth the money since one bottle costs the the same as going into the salon for a gloss.” – Am
“I am in love with this conditioner! I am in the process of going silver, with about 2″ of regrowth and decided to just let the old color grow out. Currently had it highlighted from a very dark brown and the highlights were a little too warm. I read reviews on this and had to try it. It is amazing! It not only made the silver bright, shiny and smooth but it toned the highlights more ash and makes everything blend a little better. Would not be without it.” – Zeus
“My hair natural is really dark, however my ends are now blonde. This product is perfect for someone who wants to tone their hair, without using a purple toner. It will leave you hair looking refreshed between visits to the hair dresser. It helps really to condition the hair and leave it feeling silky soft.” – Vanessa
