It’s safe to say we’ve missed our hairdressers a lot during lockdown – particularly those of us with colour. But forget the box dyes; we have some favourites to keep our locks looking refreshed
Colour-toning shampoos and conditioners are all well and good, there are some amazing options available to tone down brassiness. But sometimes you need something with a bit more of a pigmented punch… we hear ya. This trio of treatments will help to refresh your colour until you can sit in a salon once more…
Wella Professionals Color Fresh
Please note – Wella Professionals Color Fresh requires patch testing before use
Color Fresh from Wella Professionals is a little bottle of magic. These semi-permanent shades last up to 10 washes and can help to cover greys up to 40 per cent. It’s certainly a great option if you’re really starting to get distressed when you look in the mirror – it offers gentle colour effects (in a good way), refreshes your permanent colour and levels out uneven tones. Crucially it has no ammonia or peroxide, and washes out evenly and completely.
Salons that stock Wella Professionals are offering a Love My Hair kit, which contains a shade-matched bottle of Color Fresh by your colourist, paired with a shampoo, conditioner and mask to keep your hair looking in its best condition while at home.

Revlon Professional Nutri Color Creme
This three-in-one treatment will give both your hair colour and quality a new lease of life. With 15 shades to choose from you can cover most tones, from highlighted blondes to deep brunettes. Enjoy a colour-depositing intense treatment that delivers on serious shine with just a couple of pumps.
Simply apply to damp, clean hair evenly, leave on for three minutes and rinse out. You can even mix and match shades to suit your desired tones – or try something new and temporary! Be sure to wear gloves, because these bombs are certainly pigmented – especially the darker tones.

Another deeply hydrating treatment that gives your colour the kiss of life again, evo fabuloso is also vegan, cruelty free and made without sulfates, parabens or gluten. Choose from eight shine-imparting shades and be sure to wear gloves when applying to avoid staining your hands.
A dose of this every week, applied to damp hair and rinsed out after three minutes, will have you feeling like you’ve just stepped out of a service in the salon!
