How to take care of your highlights


We love highlights! Highlights can give you a gorgeous, summery look and really make your face shine. Whether you have blonde, brown or red hair, it is important to take good care of your highlights for healthy, strong and natural hair. In this blog, we give you useful tips and information on maintaining your highlights.

Choose a professional hair stylist

It all starts with choosing a professional hair stylist who specialises in setting beautiful, fine highlights. The hair stylist knows what techniques and products to use to keep your hair vibrant and resilient, and ensures that the hair is damaged as little as possible during the process. There are special products that make your hair look even better after a highlight treatment than before. A good hair stylist will also take into account your hair type and the desired results, so that you leave the salon with beautiful highlights.

Use a mild shampoo and conditioner

After setting your highlights, it is important to use a mild shampoo and conditioner. Choose products specially designed for coloured hair as they are softer and will preserve your colour longer. Pamper your hair regularly with a nourishing conditioner to keep it soft and healthy. Salon B Haircare's Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner are perfect for this and have a great scent!

Try a dry shampoo

While it is important to keep your hair clean, excessive washing is not good for the toner in your highlights. Washing too often can cause the colour to fade a bit and if you use the wrong shampoo, your hair will also become dry. Therefore, use dry shampoo between washes to absorb excess grease. This will help your highlights stay beautiful longer and keep your hair healthy. You can try Salon B Haircare's Dry Shampoo with Pro Vitamin B5.

Protect your highlights from heat

Heat can damage your highlights and fade the toner used to give your highlights a nice colour pigment. Before using a hair dryer, straightener or curling iron, apply a heat protection spray. These sprays form a protective layer around your hair and reduce the damage caused by heat. The Salon B Haircare Highlight Protector Spray is a great product specially designed to protect your highlights. It contains nourishing ingredients like grapeseed oil, which keep your hair healthy and shiny.

Protect your hair from the sun

Sunlight can also fade your highlights, especially if you spend a lot of time outside. Protect your hair from harmful UV rays by wearing a hat or scarf. In addition, as extra protection, you can use the Highlight Protector Spray, which also contains a UV filter and heat protector. Apply the spray before you go outside and it forms a barrier against the sun, while moisturising and nourishing your hair. By the way, this is also a great tip for when you go into seawater or the chlorinated pool. A bit of Highlight Protector spray before you dive into the water and will give your hair extra protection.

With these practical tips, you can take proper care of your highlights, protect the colour and keep your hair healthy and strong.
