The Perfect Way to Protect Coloured Hair

Since I was about 11/12 years old I’ve been getting my hair highlighted and occasionally I made those school girl errors by dying it an awful block colour all over. I bet you couldn’t imagine me with black hair? Well yes, that did happen once and I must say, it wasn’t the smartest move I made.

I started off getting my hair highlighted on the odd occasion to dry my hair out a bit. My hair was originally quite oily so my Mum allowed me to have the odd highlights put in. Ever since then, I’ve always had highlights. Whether it be half a head or a full head, it just became part of my hair ritual.

You have to be careful when highlighting or colouring your hair, especially if you’re using bleach. Not only does it damage your hair if you do it too often, it also makes your hair look dry & unhealthy. I love having soft and shiny hair so I sometimes use special hair shine spray once I’ve finished styling it.

So here’s the secret on how to protect coloured hair … Regis have invented a colour protector called ‘Smart Bond’. In a nutshell, the formula helps to protect your hair bonds inside and out when you’re having it coloured. The Smart Bond treatment is mixed in with your hair dye and is applied along with the desired colour. So it’s no different to your usual routine and doesn’t take any longer.

I decided to take the leap and dye my hair grey all over. I’m not going to lie, sitting in the salon chair hearing that it will consist of a scalp bleach did have me worrying a bit. However, it’s something that I’ve wanted to try for a while so I just went with it.

The hairdresser applied the Smart Bond treatment and went ahead with my colour. To be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of the grey hair colour on me. I’ve always been a true blonde so I didn’t really think it was me. Now that the tint has washed out and faded, I’m back to being bright blonde and I love my hair colour now. But you know, sometimes you just have to try these things.

Regis hair salon also have home treatments for you to use after your salon appointment. They have conditioners which help keep your hair strong and healthy. Using the Smart Bond certainly makes a difference to coloured hair. It’s very affordable and reassured me when knowing I was having my hair coloured yet again. For the sake of a few more pounds, I would rather know that my hair will remain in good condition after the appointment.

Now that I’ve had my hair coloured a few times in the past couple of months, I feel more incline to protect my hair now more than ever. To keep up with the Smart Bond treatment, I’ve also been using a hair mask which helps to nourish and condition my hair. I often apply this overnight or even throughout the whole day depending on what my plans are.

If you book in for an appointment with Regis hair salon then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me and let me know your thoughts on their new treatment :)

Lots of love,
