Then for those who dye their hair, it's important to understand how colouring affects the hair so you can use the right products. Hint: it might not be in the way you think it does.
“People think colouring damages their hair but that’s not necessarily the case. Over colouring or excessive bleaching can, however, deplete hair of moisture,” says Joey Scandizzo, award-winning hair stylist and co-founder of ELEVEN Australia.
“Going lighter is always more challenging for the hair than going darker. By lightening hair you are removing pigment and opening up the cuticle so you need to use the right products to add in lost moisture and rebalance the pH.”
On that note, here are three brilliant mix and match haircare combos if you want colour protection and volume.
Combo 1: Blonde + Body.
Best shampoo: ELEVEN Keep My Colour Blonde Shampoo
Best conditioner: ELEVEN I Want Body Volume Conditioner
Why they're the perfect pair:
Scandizzo says all of ELEVEN Australia’s shampoos and conditioners help protect against colour fade, but to help treat and thicken fine hair, you'll want to use products that have wheat proteins in them.
“A lot of my clients struggle to find the balance between maintaining volume without sacrificing moisture and softness for their dyed blonde hair."
“Wheat proteins and silk aminos are the best for fine hair as these penetrate the hair shaft and don’t just sit on the top. The amino acids and avocado oil in this product combo will keep your hair toned whilst adding that much needed strength and hydration. Most importantly - it won’t weigh your hair down!”
