Don’t Forget About At-Home Color Maintenance and Protection

All coloring must be protected and cared for. That’s why it’s your duty as a color professional to remind your clients about the importance of at-home color care to help maintain their beautiful look. Quality hair color extends long after a client’s salon visit, after all! This includes using a nourishing shampoo to cleanse the hair with the right moisturizing masks, heat and sun protection, and even restructuring treatments.

We recommend the Eksperience™ Color Protection range of products— especially Eksperience Color Protection Color Sealing Mask™. This color sealing mask helps to protect and revive hair color, for long-lasting color intensity, vivacity, and shine. It helps create a barrier that maintains hair color for at least five washes, while keeping hair moisturized and protected against UV rays. Featuring an exclusive Aquamaris Complex, Eksperience™ products are formulated with a unique blend of pure seawater and marine ingredients for nature-inspired, newly-crafted at-home beauty rituals.


Revlon Professional®

The key to great color—in addition to ample protection and nourishment—comes down to choosing the right gentle hair dye products for your clients’ needs. Additionally, always remember to space out color applications over time and properly apply your chosen color technique for each individual hairstyle. With the right products and coloring techniques, you can enjoy creating gorgeous colors that dazzle, surprise, and attract more clients!
