As we all know, a great hair care routine starts in the shower. Invest in TIGI Copyright Custom Care Colour Shampoo and Conditioner. This duo will work to ensure that your color stays intact throughout a summer of hair washes. It’s essential to use a color-minded wash and care system after getting your hair highlighted. Regular shampoos and conditioners can wreak havoc on highlighted hair and force you back to your colorist much earlier than anticipated.

Before using any hot tools on your highlighted hair make sure to prep your strands with a heat protection spray. Dove Style + Care Smooth and Shine Heat Protection Spray will protect your strands and give them a strong boost of shine. Highlighted hair has been processed with bleach and is therefore already weaker than its virgin counterparts. Taking care to protect your light hair for summer is essential for avoiding any further damage.

Finally, make some time for some deeper hair care throughout the week. Have Bed Head by TIGI Resurrection Treatment Mask available to revive hair after any unavoidable damage!
