Ever Wondered the Truth About Going Light In the Winter? Us Too!
A L’Oréal Professionnel colorist answers our burning hair questions.
Many of us have been getting our hair colored haphazardly for years, never quite knowing how to make it last or what color to go that will be best suited to us. L’Oréal Professionnel Colorist and Sahag Workshop Color Director, Doug Macintosh set the record straight by answering a few hair questions that have always been secretly lurking at the roots.
What should you consider before making a major change to your color?
Be sure your color choice suits your eye color and skin tone, as well as your lifestyle. Be careful about loving and wanting a celebrity’s color that has different eye color and skin tone.
What are some techniques you can use to making color last?
-Use a color safe, low sulfate shampoo.
-Avoid chlorine and the sun.
-Get a Keratin treatment.
Is it true you should go dark in the winter and light in the summer or does it really not matter?
It doesn’t matter. In fact, it is an old fashioned idea especially since no one really tans anymore.
Who is your favorite person to work on and why?
My favorite client is a big correction that really allows me to do whatever I need to fix the color and make her hair beautiful and healthy. When I ‘m done and we are both satisfied it’s a great feeling!
