Summer is almost here and it’s time to get fruity with cherry hair colour!
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
You need to get your roots touched up, pronto! But you don’t have time for a hair appointment to fix up those highlights, or maybe you’re waiting for payday. Whatever the reason for the delay, regrowth isn’t a good look on anyone.
There are loads of colour-maintenance tips you can follow, of course, but the following styles and tips can help your hair colour regrowth look a little less obvious when you’re stretching out the time till your next visit to the salon.
Piling your hair on top of your head won’t hide the roots, but “it will distract attention away from the hair root and towards the centre point of the style,” says L’Oréal Professionnel Stylist Sonica de Klerk. A bun hairstyle or sleek ponytail are great options, and you can learn how to nail a perfect top knot here.
If the hair at your parting is too sleek and flat, regrowth is more visible. Create a volumised look that lifts the roots to hide regrowth. You may want to invest in volumising hair powder even.
Any asymmetrical parting where hair falls over the natural part will really minimise the appearance of your dark/light roots.
“Short crops to medium swept bobs are the best for hiding visible regrowth. These shapes are great because the hair can be pushed over partings to create softness,” explains Redken Expert Richard Nienaber.
These types of braids look complicated, but they’re actually easy to achieve. Any plaited style is fantastic for masking regrowth in longer hair, as attention is drawn to the braid instead of the roots.
Hair clips, Alice bands and pretty hair ties all draw attention away from your roots. Headbands and bandannas can even be used as stylish accessories to cover regrowth at the front of your hair completely. Your other strategy is to adopt a striking makeup look that keeps all eyes on your face and below your hairline.
