When you first colour your hair it has rich, glossy colour. After a while your hair luminance and brilliance can disappear. We share our best tips and tricks to restore shine and hair colour intensity.

  • We would suggest that in order to carry out a quick colour touch up, it is possible to mix 1/2 a teaspoon of colour creme and 1/2 a teaspoon of the developer lotion in a saucer. Apply to the area of hair you require to colour and leave for the full development time (please use a plastic spoon). Before colouring your hair it is important to carry out the skin allergy alert test 48 hours prior to application.

  • Hair Colour Touch-Up – Multiple Application

    Hair colour touch-ups do not change the basic hair colour and do not require elaborate colouring techniques. It is possible to apply a small portion of a one push colourant only to the area where it is needed e.g. the hair near the roots. The remaining touch-up colour can be used for another application.

  • Hair Colour Touch-Up Tips

    • Even if you only intend to touch up the hairline or roots around the parting, make sure that the hair colour does not fall on your clothing. Wear an old T-shirt or wrap a towel around your shoulders to catch any drips. Hair colour can leave temporary stains on fingers and nails. Be sure to wear the included gloves while you apply hair colour.

    • You should always read the instructions on/in the packaging before using a new or unfamiliar product. Hair colour touch-ups work best if you stick to the hair colourant instructions.

    • It is important to perform the allergy test before the first application. The test is described in the instructions on/in the packaging.

    • Use shampoos, which are designed to protect colour-treated hair. These shampoos also maintain the colour brilliance and intensity.
