Blonde but not really
Are you not comfortable with going fully blonde or is your mum about to disown you if you enter the house looking like someone else’s child? Well, take it easy with the perfect blend of blonde and brunette. Start off with a brown base and highlight it with subtle blonde shades around the edges to give the illusion of thick volume.
Pastel colours are here to stay
Summer welcomed pastels and has continued to be among the latest hair colour trends 2022 has to offer if the amount of influencers sporting them is anything to go by. And gone are the days of stylists gatekeeping light hair colours from those of us who have a darker skin tone. Want to rock a pastel mane like that random favourite Pinterest model of yours? Go ahead with dark roots giving way to a pastel pink or blue.
Frame your face
When we talk about hair colours, this particular 2022 trend does not require you to change your entire look. Define your face by colouring the front strands that frame it. Popularised by K-pop idols, it makes a bold statement without making much change. Simply make your hairline pop to give a chic or punk look depending on the shade you want to colour.
Gloss isn’t just for the lips
Lip gloss is not the only thing that is making a comeback. Do you want a change but are afraid to experiment? Opt for a glossy and shimmering effect that does not change the colour of your hair. Simply add shine to your hair by adding a glossy top coat to your mane. Hair gloss is semi-permanent and is also better for the health of your hair as it isn’t drying.
The brown balayage effect
Instagram truly is a kaleidoscope of inspiration with the balayage effect being among the latest hair colour trends 2022 has served up. Get a permanently sun-kissed look with a brunette base and hand painted highlights. These natural highlights will add more dimension and vibrancy to your hair while easily blending the two colours. Balayage colouring also gives you a natural look unlike the ombre effect as the latter is always risky enough to look blotchy and end up with a visible difference between the two shades.
Precautions to take after hair colouring
Now, say that you’ve jumped on the latest hair colour trend of 2022 and changed up your look, don’t forget to maintain it if you want it to last long. If you don’t use the right shampoo or take care of your hair, you’ll end up with dry hair and a faded look.
Use shampoo and conditioner meant for coloured hair.
Colouring your hair can dry it if you don’t take care of it. Keep your hair moisturised with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like the Tresemme Pro Pure Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. It has nourishing elements like aloe vera, sunflower seed oil and coconut oil that are perfect for coloured hair. It also cleanses hair of excess oil and grime while also strengthening weak locks.
Pamper your hair with masks
Colouring can take a toll on the health of your hair if you don’t maintain it. Pamper your hair weekly with hair masks to restore its natural moisture with the likes of Tresemme Pro Pure Moisture Boost Mask. Like its shampoo and conditioner counterparts, it is paraben-free and is loaded with the wonders of aloe vera. Get professional care at your fingertips as it strengthens your hair inside out and leaves it shiny. Take a generous amount and apply it from the mid-length to the tips. Leave it for three to five minutes and then wash it off.
Use heat protection spray while heat styling
Heat and hair do not go hand in hand. And heat styling tools can just worsen coloured hair which will be prone to drying. Don’t burn your hair or damage your follicles by using a heat-protectant spray like the Tresemme Heat Protection Spray. It also has keratin and marula oil to keep your hair frizz-free, tame flyaways and keep coloured hair soft and protected. Simply spray it 10 to 12 inches away from your hair and evenly spread it with a wide-toothed comb before straightening, curling or blow-drying it.
