FANTASY COLOURS – Tips for Maintaining Bright Hair Colour!

Pack a Pigment Punch with our NEW fastest colours

Dying your hair is always fun and it’s also a great way to kickoff the new year! Pack a pigment punch with our NEW fastest colours. INCOLOR Enhancing Direct Pigments, a new, easy-to-apply formulation in gel form to place accents on hair tips, fringes or face-frame sections; create exciting ombre and highlighting effects. Fastasy colours are the ultimate tool for creative colour.

 

Good Color Starts with Healthy Hair

Unhealthy, damaged hair will not hold colour well. You may make it from black hair to pink in a week by bleaching your hair twice a day but that pink won’t hold because your hair is in rough shape. Be patient with your journey from dark hair to coloured hair. Make sure to nurture your hair. Hair masks and repair products are your best friends! Try INSIGHT DAILY USE  Energizing Mask & INSIGHT DRY HAIR Nourishing Mask.

 

Rinse Hair with Cool Water

This is actually my best tip. Warm water opens the hair cuticle allowing the colour to escape. I’m not saying you need to wash your hair with ice cold water, but in reality, the colder the better. Wash and rinse hair in cold water, toss it up in a towel then crank that water up for the rest of the shower.

Cold water also helps reduce bleeding if you have more than one color, otherwise your hair colour will just turn into a mess similar to when you mix different colors of paint together.

While we’re on the subject of water, it should be noted that swimming in chlorinated water is awful for your hair color. (But hey, if you want to fade your hair, go for it!) For good measures, just keep your hair dry as much as possible and avoid hot water!

 

Avoid Shampoos with Sulfates & choose SLS/SLES FREE

Sulfates (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate & Sodium Laureth Sulfate) and alcohol-based products are two huge things that will fade any hair colour. Sulfate free shampoos can be kind of tricky to find sometimes, but they’re definitely worth switching to. INSIGHT professional has a wide selection of hair shampoos & conditioners which are SLS/SLES FREE. Instead INSIGHT uses gentler cleansing agent, derived from coconut, using a more dermo-compatible cleansing product means protecting scalp health and balance over time.

Even with sulfate free shampoo, you should still try to cut back on shampoo use. Shampoo strips your hair of its natural oils, as well as the colour. If you’re lucky enough to not have super greasy hair, skip washing every other day and use a protective MASK on your off days. Our choice is INSIGHT COLORED HAIR Protective Mask which protects hair colour, & deeply nourishes the hair, leaving it softer & healthier than ever.

 

Avoid Prolonged Exposure to the Sun

Just like your skin, the sun isn’t necessarily good for your hair color. Try wearing a hat if you’ll be spending a long time in the sun. There are also products to protect the hair from weather conditions, sun rays, chlorine & sea salt. We recommend trying INSIGHT ANTIOXIDANT rejuvenating MASK & INSIGHT ANTIOXIDANT protective hairspray.

All of the above should help you maintain your hair colour & enjoy your vivid pigments for fashion results on the fly!

OUR VALUES & CHOICES

Natural Hair Product

Our laboratories formulate according to precise ecological and health conscious parameters. Here are the ingredients we chose not to use:

 

SYNTHETIC COLOURANTS FREE

All INSIGHT products are without synthetic dyes, with the exception of one product (Anti-yellow shampoo) in which the use of dye is unavoidable because it performs an action needed for the formula to work.

 

ALLERGENS FREE (FRAGRANCES)

We chose to use only fragrances without allergens, so that our treatments will be as gentle as possible, even on the most sensitive scalps.

 

SLS/SLES FREE

All of our shampoos are formulated without SLS and SLES (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate), which are considered aggressive and potentially irritating surfactants. Instead we chose to use a gentler cleansing agent, SODIUM COCETH SULFATE, derived from coconut. Using a more dermo-compatible cleansing product means protecting scalp health and balance over time.

 

SILICONES FREE

Silicones are inorganic polymers derived from silicon that are produced through chemical synthesis processes. Although it’s true that they give immediate softness and shine to hair, thanks to their film forming effect, they prevent the penetration of the active ingredients since they occlude the scales of the cuticle. That is why we eliminate silicones, where possible, from our formulations.

 

PARABENS AND MIT FREE

Parabens and MITs are preservatives that have become the subject of controversy. Scientific research has not yet taken a definitive stance on whether or not they are harmful. While awaiting for a response that dispels all doubt, we decided to use some alternative preservative systems. In particular, we use a biodegradable mixture of fruit acids for all our shampoos: Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate. For masks and conditioners instead we use a preservative mixture composed of Benzyl Alcohol and a naturally derived softening agent, Glyceryl Laurate (derived from palm oil).

 

MINERAL OILS AND PETROLATUM FREE

Petrolatum (Paraffinum liquidum) is a refined petroleum product with film-forming properties that prevents correct transpiration and oxygenation of scalp and hair. We opted to replace it, where possible, with more dermo-compatible naturally derived ingredients with the same properties, but fewer unknowns to health. The skin and hair must be free to do the most natural thing possible, i.e. breathe.
