When you invest in a new haircut or color, it only makes sense to look after it so it stays salon-fresh weeks down the road. Whether you’ve already taken the plunge or are still deciding on your new look, here are tips for caring for your hair, depending on your chosen makeover:
1. Autumnal Auburn
This romantic hue mimics the gorgeous colors of nature in autumn. The reddish tones and dark brown tints come together to create a look that’s flattering on any skin tone. To maintain the vibrancy of your new do, switch to a shampoo and conditioner that’s specially formulated for color-treated hair.
We like Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose Shampoo and Conditioner—their star ingredient is Amazonian murumuru butter, which helps deeply penetrate hair for a nourishing boost and prevents colored hair from fading. Use the shampoo to remove dirt and build-up from your scalp, then moisturize and detangle strands with the accompanying conditioner. Go easy on heat styling to maintain dyed hair’s luster and shine, and always use a heat protectant spray when using a blow dryer or flat iron.
2. Tousled Bob
Need a good reason to cut off your hair? The reemergence of the choppy bob should convince you. Fresh, effortless, and carefree, this length is a firm favorite among fashion girls around the world. Given the lived-in vibe this cut exudes, the last thing you’d want is for your hair to look flat and stringy.
To revive limp locks, turn to Love Beauty and Planet’s Volume and Bounty Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Shampoo and Conditioner. Infused with coconut water, this duo leaves hair glossy, bouncy, and voluminous, without ever weighing it down. Afterward, scrunch up some texturizing spray on random sections beneath your crown to create that desirable bedhead look.
3. Washed Out Pastel
A departure from the bright colors typically seen on Instagram, this trend imparts a barely-there pastel tint on your hair. As simple as that may sound, it can be hard to achieve, since you need to go extremely light for that delicate faded effect to appear. Since bleaching is practically synonymous with damage, make sure to counteract the effects of extreme hair coloring with the right products.
Enter Love Beauty and Planet Hope and Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang Shampoo and Conditioner, which tackle damage, dryness, and split ends with virgin coconut oil. Follow up with a leave-in hair oil that nourishes and hydrates; once a week, use an intensive hair mask to treat damaged hair.
4. Long Balayage Layers
This cut and color is quite low-maintenance, making it ideal for those who prefer wash-and-go styles. Even then, painting sections of your hair to achieve that sun-kissed effect will dry them out. To tame frizz and hydrate dry tresses, look for products formulated with rich argan oil.
This ingredient, which also brings back shine and softness to dull hair, can be found in the Love Beauty and Planet Smooth and Serene Argan Oil & Lavender Shampoo and Conditioner. This combo imparts a lovely scent of French lavender while gently cleansing and moisturizing tresses so they stay healthy and smooth.
5. Wispy Bangs
This face-framing style is characterized by piecey bangs that allow your forehead to peek through. It’s perfect for girls who can’t commit to drastic hair changes. In terms of fringe length, opt for bangs that graze your eyebrows. Make sure your bangs (and the rest of your hair, of course) stay fresh—not stringy—with a revitalizing shampoo and conditioner.
We’re obsessed with the purifying characteristics of Love Beauty and Planet Tea Tree Oil & Vetiver Shampoo and Conditioner. It removes gunk and residue from the scalp for an instantly refreshing feel. Make sure your bangs stay grease-free by using this combo. It'll leave your hair clean and revitalized.
