#1 Book in with our Blonde Specialist Rosabel.
#2 Never rush the process, trust your hairdresser when they say it may take a few sittings to get you to the ice white blonde you are dreaming of.
#3 Leave plenty of time for your appointment, careful bleaching takes time. Enjoy the process and relax, if you should need anything, such as your car-park ticket or something to eat, we will happily pop out for you.
#4 Always choose WellaPlex, this is a must when bleaching your hair and we will always recommend you have it. In Hunter & Walsh we charge £10 for the WellaPlex additive, the reason we keep the cost so low is because we want you to have it! WellaPlex rebuilds broken bonds and protects your hair against further damage. It is not a miracle worker, so listen to your stylist when they encourage you to proceed with caution (#1). Invest in WellaPlex No.3 £32 for home use, use this every week if your hair is very blonde or if you have had a full bleach-up.
#5 Avoid over-washing, following your salon appointment try to go as long as possible between washing your hair. Over-washing can strip your hair of essential moisture and cause your colour to fade. Your hair will be in a fragile state for a few days after colouring, treat it with care as if it were a delicate fabric. Keep the water temperature low and massage it gently.
#6 Use toning shampoo, regularly but with care, check out my blog to understand how to use purple shampoo properly. https://www.hunterandwalsh.com/blog/2018/7/8/purple-rain Kevin.Murphy Blonde.Angel Wash £21 and Rinse £22 will keep your blonde looking amazing.
#7 Never brush your hair when its wet!! 😬 Think of hair like paper, when it’s dry you can pull on each side without causing any damage, but wet paper will easily pull apart! When your hair is wet, run some MoroccanOil through it with your fingers then leave it for at least half an hour before very carefully combing from the ends up to the roots.
#8 Don’t skip the mask. Use a repairing Mask at least once a week!! Kevin.Murphy Re.Store Mask £27 once a week will ensure your hair has all the moisture it needs to keep it strong.
#9 Prepare for your next visit with WellaPlex no.3 £32, this will strengthen and build your hair ready to go even blonder!!
