colour my bronde

Bronde- The Clue is in the name! Bronde is a colour technique that fuses brown and blonde to create a sun kissed rich hair effect. 

 

By Blending Brown and Blonde lets you enjoy the best of both worlds. Balayage is always an amazing technique for when you want to go lighter of darker but not high maintenance so win, win and bronde will be a winner for those opting for a change but not drastic ..

 

So, if you favour rich, natural brunette tones , this is one to try.

Bronde is a technique done best in a salon by a colourist Mochas are perfect for the Bronde look as they are rich and glossy. L’Oreal Professional bleaches have advanced technologies. 

How a colourist places bleach to strands is a technique and our girls are masters at colour placement to highlight specific facial areas, to lift and enhance I mean who does not want a hairlift? 

 

Ain’t no hood like Motherhood..

Are you an expecting mom , few in the knows as you are experiencing so many major changes in your body your hair during pregnancy, with the influx of hormones your hair may feel thicker. Pregnancy changes the growing , resting and falling out phases your hair usually go through so you feel like your hair is thicker but this is in fact because you are not losing it.

 Your hair grows a lot faster during pregnancy as your body experiences an influx of estrogen. 

So a lot of questions we would get asked is it safe to colour my hair”? Our answer to that would be if you are cautious? Consider waiting until the second trimester. 

Colouring hair semi, permanent and highlights are safe during pregnancy because this small amount is not considered harmful to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Highlights are not placed onto scalp they are placed onto individual strands of hair therefore not absorbed into the bloodstream. Always tell your hairdresser and they can chat with you regarding any concerns you may have. 

So you now you’re a Mom and you are experiencing hair loss, some women more than others will lose a lot of hair but please don’t stress this is so common. This is because you Estrogen levels take a tumble usually happen around 2-3mths after having baby. Please know this is temporary and be gentle with your hair through this phase and take care of your hair until normal hair growth resumes which takes up to 12-mths. 

Avoid tight hairstyles , pulling or styling the hair too tight. Be careful with heat try a heat protection product if blow-drying etc. sometimes these can not be avoided but when you are in salon with your stylist try a treatment regularly to help care for new hair. 

Try some supplements , Vitamin B Complex – this is an important Vitamin to reduce hair fall post pregnancy for hair proteins like keratin.

Omega-3 – Fatty acids, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids are essential for healthy hair. 

So if your expecting or just welcomed your bundle of joy home I hope this was helpful. 

Your hairdresser is always on hand to help ease any concerns you have.

Colour does fade this is true but colour can be maintained and we want our hair to grow that is without a doubt, healthy hair grows!


I always feel my colour has changed over time from shampooing but I have also noticed since I started using salon products recommended to me I have gotten longer and this is a hallelujah in between colour service.

Highlights, balayage or any bleached hair do not really change extremely but you are stripping the hair of its natural pigment to achieve certain colour. your colourist will always tell you the right shampoo, conditioner and treatment mask to use , they are not making a sale believe me they are salon made products for a reason. They will be your saviour , like skin products I certainly would never go without my moisturizer for my skin why would your hair go without it!

Highlights will fade slightly over time ‘but’ having the right products and having a toner service in between colour service. We offer a service called foxytone in salon and any bleached, highlighted, balayage hair girls should avail of your colour will be fresh and pop to see you through until your next appointment. Toners do not last forever so every couple of weeks will I promise be your saviour. 

Colour does not rinse out it oxidises that is why you are seeing colour fade, precaution to prevent this to shield hair from fade avail of these services in salon of tone , having the products you need out of salon to hand these will save your hair.

Hair Strobing

 

 

We have all heard of highlighting, contouring and strobing. We have all tried to master it with our make-up so the terminology has now passed over to hair. 

Hair Strobing- Individualized highlighting that is specific to ones hair, colour, face shape and skin tone. 

405-2Champagne_hair_strobing

Lighter skin/ fair skin have pink undertones and darker your skin, the easier you can pull off intense colours.

Hair strobing highlights where light would naturally hit the face. 

So using lighter colours to emphasise specific areas of the face. As spring is here before summer hits think of this for your next colour appointment. 

Always use a recommended shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair specific to you to condition and conserve coloured hair.

Innovative Hair Colour..

At Foxandbow our mantra is always hair care and most girls will tell you they have had some major dye-induced damage to their hair in their lifetime. 

Introducing INOA an immonia free in salon permanent hair colour system by L’oreal Professional- INOA is short for Innovation no ammonia. INOA is a hair colour line that replaces ammonia with a “minimal amount” of MEA & oil hence the term ODS which is an oil delivery system.

35832b2aff52b5f2c3485e19eaae7adf

3 reasons we love INOA – ‘smell, hair reaction and range of colour’. 

Ammonia is used in hair colour to open up the hair fiber so it absorbs dye better, smell is awful so get rid of ammonia, get rid of smell. ODS- oil delivery system- that uses oil molecules to more gently open the hair shaft to absorb dye.

inoa-available-list

Range of colour, more range and more natural hair colour looks. The ingredients in INOA preserve lipids (natural condition of hair) much better than ammonia can. 

L’oreal is responding to a market that is demanding ”cleaner” hair products. Discover INOA at foxandbow, with the expertise of your hairdresser and an in-depth colour consultation to achieve the perfect shade for you.
