How to prolong your hair colour – with Pureology 

We have all asked ourselves the question, how long might it be until our next salon appointment? If you have been wondering how to keep your hair colour lasting longer until your next salon visit, wait no longer. 

From faded roots, to dull looking colour, Pureology has got your back! Maintain your hair colour vibrancy in between salon appointments with these top tips from Pureology expert hair educators.


Choose gentle cleansing formulas

Sulphates can be harsh on the hair and strip the hair causing colour fade. Opt for Zero sulphate products to keep your hair colour looking vibrant. Pureology, the #1 Professional Colour Care brand, uses products that are zero sulphate containing no nasties, using corn, coconut and sugar to gently cleanse the hair without stripping its colour.


Use a heat protectant

Regular use of heat tools without protection can damage the hair and affect its colour! By using a heat protectant with added colour protection you can maintain colour vibrancy, shine and healthy hair, leaving it looking and feeling better than ever. Try Pureology Pure Volume Style & Care Infusion, apply before blow drying for heat defense, touchable volume, body and discipline all at the same time.


Use hair masks and treatments

Keep your hair looking its best with a deep conditioning treatment to improve condition and colour vibrancy. Use a hair mask once a week so that your locks remain moisturised and hair colour stays bright. Try the Pureology Colour Fanatic Instant Deep Conditioning Mask, infused with an exclusive AntiFade Complex, this moisturising hair mask from Pureology is 100% vegan and penetrates strands to instantly restore, protect and strengthen. If your hair feels damaged and broken, reach for Pureology Strength Cure Superfood mask, formulated with keravis, ceramide and arginine to heal and repair damage.


Styling is key

Missing that fresh out of the salon shine? Use styling tools that enhance shine to keep the hair colour looking its best. Using a shine serum on the hair before blow drying can help create that silky and glossy texture you have been missing. Try Pureology Shine Max to create a reflective shine on even the dullest hair.


If all else fails, switch up your style or experiment with your hair parting and accessories! 

Hair accessories are so on trend, and can enhance any hair look! Keep it colourful and experiment with different coloured hairbands or scrunchies for that 90s feel.

If hair accessories aren’t your thing, try changing your parting around, side parting, middle parting or even a zig-zag parting can really switch up your look.

Vegan Beauty: Everything You Need To Know

Searches for vegan beauty products are up by 281%. THESE are the brands you need to know about…

According to Pinterest, searches for vegan beauty products were up 281% YOY, and with a 175% increase in vegan beauty products available to consumers since 2013, you might say that #veganbeauty is having a bit of a moment. We reveal everything you need to know about the vegan  beauty trend, including the brands to look out for… 

The rise of Vegan Beauty products

Sales of vegan beauty products saw a 38% increase in the UK between 2017-2018 alone according to a report by the NPD group. But what does that mean for the beauty industry? Well, for starters it means that consumers are becoming more contientious. According to Helen Duxbury, senior UK beauty account manager at NPD:

There has certainly been a rise in the number of vegan brands in prestige beauty and this coincides with consumers adopting a more conscientious approach when purchasing products, looking closely at the underlying philosophies and actions of the brands.

They not only investigate ingredients and efficacy: they want to know about traceability, and how animal friendly they are.”

What does ‘vegan beauty’ mean?

Similarly to a vegan diet, vegan beauty products are cosmetics that are free from any animal derivitives, including but not limited to:

  • Lanolin
  • Shellac
  • Glycerine (unless specified vegetarian)
  • Casein/Sodium Caseinate or Caseinate
  • Squalene
  • Guanine
  • Oleic Acid/Oleyl Stearate/Oleyl Olate/Tallow
  • Non-synthetic hair
  • Stearic Acid
  • Carmine/Cochineal/Natural Red 4/E120/C/I/ 75470
  • Collagen
  • Elastin
  • Keratin
  • Beeswax/Cera Alba

Many brands nowadays are turning to organic, natural ingredients, but for a 100% fully vegan choice A’Kin is our go-to. This Australian brand is not only vegan but features organic ingredients, contains no nasties and is cruelty-free. We absolutely adore their Rosehip Oil, which works wonders on scars, dry and ageing skin. If pigmentation is a problem, choose their Rosehip Oil with added Vitamin C. But it doesn’t stop there, because A’Kin has a whole range of skincare from micellar water to day cream, cleansers and body care.

#VeganMakeup

Mineral makeup is so well known, it’s hard to remember the days when it was considered weird and unusual! But back in the early 2000s it certainly was a new thing, and pioneering the way was Jane Iredale. Her mineral makeup was first loved by cosmetic surgery clients who needed something very kind but very effective while they healed from their treatments. It wasn’t long before everyone noticed how fabulous mineral makeup looks on the skin – the natural, dewy effect just can’t be missed. It was also amazing for anyone suffering with acne, as the acne virus just can’t thrive in the mineral pigments. Jane Iredale products are certified cruelty-free but some do contain carmine and beeswax that dedicated vegans will want to avoid (see details here).
