5 COLOR CARE ESSENTIALS
Updated: May 19, 2020
Beautiful hair color is what we do. And we like to think of your hair color service as an investment in your confidence. To take care of that investment, we have product recommendations to prolong the vibrancy, shine, and tone of your fresh color.
Protection from the sun and harsh minerals in water is vital to color care. The wash shield technology in Lanza’s Healing Colorcare Color Guard reestablishes vital barriers to guard against color pigment washout. The weightless conditioning formula helps to leave hair soft and shiny, while the UV protection technology is SO AMAZING to spray on before a day in the sun!
The type of shampoo you use and how often you use it are both extremely important to keeping color vibrant. Making sure your shampoo is sulfate free and color safe are the first step. You might as well light your money on fire, instead of coloring your hair, if you don’t want to invest in a high-quality shampoo. Harsh chemicals will scrub away your gorgeous, fresh color and wash it right down the drain! The less the better, too! No one should be shampooing or washing more than twice a week. More often than that, you are risking fading your color quicker than you need to. Color care or moisturizing conditioner is ideal to seal in and keep your color more beautiful, longer. We recommend two different products since this is so important! Lanza’s Healing Color Care Shampoo to help your color last 110% longer, and Lanza’s Clarifying Color Safe shampoo to rid your hair of product buildup, or minerals from hard water, lakes, and pools! Hot tip: Use cool water to retain color and give yourself shinier, healthier hair.
Heat is the devil when it comes to color retention. Let me repeat that, HEAT IS THE DEVIL. But we understand that you need to style your hair sometimes. It is crucial to protect your hair from heat during every phase of the styling process. If you are blow-drying, use a heat protectant. If you are flat ironing, YOU HAVE TO USE HEAT PROTECTANT. If you are curling, you must use a heat protectant. If you even look at a heat tool, you must use a heat protectant. Kidding. But seriously, make sure to use either Olaplex Oil or Lanza’s Thermal protectant before every phase of styling and notice how much longer your color lasts and your hair grows!
Give your color that extra pop with Lanza’s Shine Illuminator! This cult favorite shine spray revives hair color without applying new color and instantly boosts hue vibrancy and vividness. This is going to illuminate your color pigments with astonishing brilliance and the formula is weightless. Hot Tip: A little goes a long way! Hold far away, and spray on midshaft and ends for stunning shine!
Deep Conditioner/ Custom Color Conditioner
It doesn’t matter what color your hair is, it’s not going to look fabulous if it’s dry and unhealthy. Make sure your locks are moisturized and bouncy by using a deep conditioner and leave in, and for redheads and blonde gals, make sure to use a colored conditioner weekly. Blondes should reach for violet toned conditioners. If you have a vivid, bright hair color, like red, purple, or blue, ask your stylist to make you a custom colored depositing deep conditioner to use weekly! Lanza’s Trauma Treatment is the perfect treatment and leave in for colored hair needing a little love. We also recommend Lanza’s Bright Blonde Conditioner, or De-Brassing Conditioner for our blonde babes!
