Care and Maintenance

Unlike an allover hair dyeing, maintaining ombre is simple. Hair roots do not grow in so you can expect the look to last for months. It is important to maintain the vibrancy of the color though. Make use of shampoo and conditioner formulated for hair that is color treated. Consider using purple shampoo, which is literally purple in color. Since yellow and purple tend to complement each other, they also cancel out each other. Thus, the purple shampoo will minimize the brassy, yellow or ashy tones in the hair offering it a paler or whiter blonde look. The good thing about this kind of shampoo is that you can get them at a cheaper price than what most salons use and recommend.

The light ends must be kept hydrated with daily use of a leave-in treatment moisturizer which protects the hair from heat. Avoiding heat also means avoiding hot showers and using flat iron or blow dryers. Heat can severely damage the hair since it makes it more brittle, drier and duller.
