If you thought hair dye was just hair dye, think again. Advances are continuously being made in the beauty industry, enhancing the quality, colour and staying power of hair dye products. The latest trend to hit salons is gel hair dye.

 

Gel hair dye gives incredible, saturated colour

What makes gel hair dye stand out as something new and revolutionary, is its superb, opaque coverage. It not only looks good but is also infused with hair care properties to give your hair some lovin.

Usually, when hair is dyed, there’s a degree of translucency: the dye has a transparent colour that masks the underlying hair colour but doesn’t completely cover it. So, any differences in colour – whether it’s the result of old hair colour growing out, highlights or even greys, will still be visible underneath the new hair colour.

The new gel hair colours, however, provide solid, highly saturated colour. The result is a monochromatic, lacquered and shiny finish that covers just about anything!

Is gel hair dye right for you?

If you like your hair colour to have dimension with many different shades and textures, gel hair dye may not be the right choice. Gel creates a solid, opaque finish. If you want dimension, then speak to your stylist about other colour options to go with your latest look.

Because of its monochromatic finish, just like makeup colour corrections, gel dye works in much the same way. If you have a variety of colours in your hair and you want to even out the tones for a more substantial look, then speak to your stylist about using a gel colour. Gel colour is possibly also the best colour product for hiding grey hair.

If you want a deep colour that pops like your favourite makeup shades, then gel dye is the right choice. While gel hair dye comes in a wide variety of shades, it is especially useful on red hair, thanks to a new red dye technology that results in a truly vibrant colour.

Next time you’re in the salon, ask your stylist about Redken Color Gels Lacquers.

Your stylist can also advise you on products to use at home to help maintain your colour and shine.
