Let your Hair be Vibrant with Health!

Whats especially remarkable about Aveda hair colour, is how gentle and non-damaging it is. Aveda use their signature blend of plant based oils; Certified organic sunflower, castor, jojoba, coconut and babassu, that not only protect, but also give optimum shine.

Aveda hair colour is at least 92% plant derived and like the rest of our products, is cruelty free. All the Aveda range are manufactured using 100% renewable wind energy or carbon offsets, so Aveda hair colour is the best ethical choice you can make when colouring your hair.

You can choose between permanent, semi-permanent and demi-permanent (lasts up to 40 washes), and from natural shades right through to striking vibrants. So if you fancy blue tips to your black hair or a bright pink ombre on your blonde you can! The vibrants range is for play time! This range only lasts for up to 15 washes, so you get to really explore your wild side without committing!

Aveda hair colour is completely customisable colour from plant based science that Aveda is so famous for.

So Obviously You Want Your Beautiful New Colour To Last As Long As Possible Right?

So once you’ve chosen your look and finished shaking your mane to all your friends and family (who obviously love it!), let’s look at the best ways for keeping your hair looking this good for as long as we can! Here are our stylists TOP TIPS for keeping your colour.

Wash Hair Less!

Hairdressers in our Guildford and Walton salons recommend that you wash you hair 3 to 4 times a week max so you don’t need to wash your hair every day, especially if you’re nurturing your colour. It’s easy to get away with not washing, thanks to awesome products like the dry shampure, which helps to revive hair by absorbing excess oil and impurities. This is also beneficial to the planet as you’ll use less water!

When you do shower, take note of the temperature of the water. You might love to linger under the heat, but your hair colour will fade quicker. When rinsing off after shampooing, be sure to cool the water down a little.

Beware of the Sun!

We are a far cry from any sunshine here at the moment, but it’s worth noting for your future summer or holiday self, that the sun is very damaging to hair, so it’s great to take precaution if you plan to bathe without a cover. The Aveda Sun Care Hair Veil comes strongly recommended as an easy light spritz will minimise any stress damage or dryness from the suns harmful rays.

Deep Condition & Hair Masques

DO use a deep conditioner or hair masque to give that extra boost of nourishment. Time poor? No problem. Aveda have a treatment specifically for coloured hair that’s super easy. Aveda Colour Conserve Strengthening Treatment can simply put it on your damp hair in the shower after shampooing, leave for 3-5 minutes whilst you wash the rest of your body and then rinse off. Easy peasy and your hair will be nourished to retain it’s strength and glossy vibrance. For damaged hair, the Aveda Damage Remedy Intensive Restructuring treatment is the best TLC your hair needs to repair and restore.

Shine Bright Like a Diamond

A simple add on to your hair appointment that only takes 5 minutes, our shine treatment will make your hair positively glow for up to 20 washes! Choose a clear gloss for glass like hair, or add a hint of your existing shade for a top up to your colour.
