How to make hair colour last longer at home
Maintaining immaculately icy blonde or expertly executed ombre is a tall order in the best of times, even with a high-calibre colourist on call. Add a multitude of salon shutdowns caused by COVID-19, however, and colour maintenance becomes more challenging than ever.
Whether your signature shade is a hand-painted balayage or a blanket block colour, the care is in your hands for the foreseeable future, so it's imperative to equip your at-home kit with the necessary colour conservation means.
"Use a deep conditioning mask to seal down the cuticle and lock in moisture," advises Kisnorbo. "This will help keep the hair looking smooth, shiny, and as a result, the colour [will appear] richer in depth. [This is] especially important for brunettes whose hair can look lighter and more faded when the hair is dry," she explains.

"Colour depositing shampoos and conditioners can really help to keep your colour fresh and vibrant during these times of lockdown at home," she shares. "They can help to provide extra depth of tone that may otherwise fade over time. This is particularly the case for redheads and brunettes."
