How to prevent brunette or brown hair fading
 
Whether your brunette is caramel and golden, or a deep, dark chocolate tone, one thing is certain - your colour looks best when it’s shiny and radiant. Saturate your strands with an extra glossy shampoo, such as the Brilliant Brunette Multi-Tone Revealing shampoo. Fortified with real crushed pearls and sweet almond, this colour-care range hydrates as it smooths for a polished, mirror-like shine.
 
When it comes to keeping brunette hair from fading, hydration is key. Dry, undernourished strands can make your brunette colour appear dull and faded, so a tailored hair care regime dedicated to keeping your colour looking its vibrant best, will make your colour last longer. Protecting your hair colour is easy with the Brilliant Brunette Colour-Protecting moisturising shampoo and conditioner, which have been expertly formulated to hydrate and replenish dry brunette hair, wash after wash.
 
Don’t forget that heated styling tools can also dehydrate your hair, resulting in dull, faded brunette tones. Help protect hair colour from heat damage with a prep spray such as the Frizz Ease heat protecting spray - formulated with ThermaGuard Complex and humectants. This formula acts as a hydrating hair mist, protecting your hair from heated styling tools, while replenishing for a smooth and moisturised finish.

How to keep red hair from fading

It’s true. Maintaining red hair is one of the most difficult tasks, and that’s because red hair molecules are much larger than other colour molecules, so the hue washes out and fades quicker. The best way to keep red hair colour from fading is by using a colour-depositing hair care range, such as our Radiant Red colour boosting shampoo and red conditioner. Expertly formulated specifically for redheads, this Pomegranate Extract and Vitamin E-infused collection recharges your hair with vibrant red tones with every wash, and will help keep your red hair colour from fading, while softening for silky-smooth strands.
