Your lockdown hair questions answered

The lockdown period has forced us to learn at home hair care tips because we can’t visit our local salons anymore. However, we can probably all agree that it gets hard to manage all our hair care concerns without the help of a hairdresser.

The good news is that, during your time of need, we are here to answer questions about your hair care concerns to make maintaining your hair easier at home:

How do I stop my hair colour from fading?

So, you’ve dyed your hair, and you desperately want to keep the colour for as long as possible. The truth is, the more you wash your hair, the quicker your hair colour will fade. So the solution is to not wash your hair every day, keep washes to once a week and when you wash your hair, be sure to use cool water. Dyed hair needs hair treatment products designed for colour treated hair. Try out TRESemmé Colour Revitalise Shampoo and Conditioner which is designed to prevent coloured hair from fading.

How often should I wash my hair?

Wash your hair three times a week and if you have oily hair, don’t increase your hair washes – rather use a shampoo for oily hair. Washing your hair less frequently helps to preserve your scalp’s natural oils. On days that you feel like skipping a wash, opt for a dry shampoo instead. TRESemmé dry shampoo leaves hair looking clean and healthy, without a drop of water.

How can I avoid split ends?

When you wash your hair, focus the shampoo on your roots and the conditioner on your ends. Use TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo and Conditioner to repair and strengthen your hair’s natural protective layer for beautiful, strong strands. After washing your hair, use a microfiber towel as it reduces frizziness and promotes moisture retention. Check out this video for tips to avoid split ends:

My roots are starting to show, what can I do to help cover them?

Applying dry shampoo to your roots is an effortless and fast way of making them less noticeable. It goes a long way in lightening up the darkness growing out and instantly refreshing your hair.

What can I use to detangle my natural hair?

Naturally curly hair tends to be more prone to knots. Use your fingers to gently detangle your hair, then split dry hair into sections using a wide-toothed comb and apply a generous amount of TRESemmé Botanic Moisture & Replenish Pre-wash Detangling Butter from root to tips. Leave in for 3 minutes and gently comb to detangle hair then rinse thoroughly with cool water.

We hope these answers will keep you on the right track to prolonging your hair and style while salons are closed.
