    Stretching Between Hair Color Touch Up

    Stretch the time between hair color touch up

    Not many women today can spend half a day in the salon every four weeks. Even if you have the cash, chances are you don’t have the time. To stretch visits between hair color touch up to every six or even eight weeks, ask for diffused high lights—with or without a slightly darker or lighter base color.
    “Get More From Hair Color Touch Ups”
    Diffused high lights only require retouches every six months. The key is to use three different colors from the same tonal family on each woven high light. The color will be different from roots to ends.

    Say you want red high lights. To diffuse them, your hair colorist uses the darkest red at the roots, the next lightest one on the mid-shaft and the very lightest one at the ends. This creates incredible depth at the scalp, so the grow-out factor is minimized. The lighter ends look naturally sun-kissed, so you may not need to have the ends refreshed with the next visit. That’ll save you time in the salon, as well as money.

    1. I have root growth and my hair has really pretty highlights that I wish to not just color over b/c I want the roots to be brightened and touched up??

      How do I ask for my hair to be healthily managed at my salon? Can I have applied a type of gloss to bring out the highlights but maybe the solution have a transparent color to blend all that I need done??

      I guess I just didn’t want to have a full coloring done and then part highlights when I like the colors in my hair I just need help at the roots??

      Thanks- Shelley Gill

    2. I’ve never even heard of diffused hilights before! Great tip, I’ll have to ask my stylist about it on my next trip!
