If you have ever wanted chocolate brown hair you will know that there is a zillion variations of it, because chocolate comes in almost black to white so let’s just assume we are are talking above the most common yummy chocolate brown like this one 👇🏻 ( bottom left corner )
Now chocolate is a combination of warm tones that include gold & brown. To maintain this tone requires follow through on your part which if done you will look delicious for the 6 week gap between visits.
Understand color is not color, there is a huge amount of variables that need to be taken into consideration, one brand is NOT the same as the next and depending on what your color is prior to the chocolate as to how it will hold and the end result achieved.
Now Maintainence doesn’t have to be a nasty word that makes you think of expensive products and countless trips back to the salon but does require a commitment.
We reccomend a sulfate free shampoo and condition daily, if you do not close the cuticle your color will literally wash out before your eyes!
Things to use
- Sulfate free shampoo we use and reccomend Alfa Parf Milano products.
- A leave in serum and/or conditioner to make sure the cuticle is closed.
- Alfa Parf has a product called pigments ( it’s not a DIY or at home product ) but if any fade does occur it can be applied between visits and is safe and conditioning, pure color pigment which will lock inside your hair and assist in tone change.
Always have an indepth chat with your stylist before and color on condition, Maintainence and always forward plan your next look.
