How should I care for my freshly coloured hair?

Once Gloss Studio has dyed your hair, you should wait 48 hours before shampooing. If needed, use dry shampoo!

  • Blondes: we recommend that you use Purple or Blue Shampoo once a week and gradually increase to two times per week, as needed. Tip: allow the Purple/Blue Shampoo to sit in your hair for 5-7 minutes before rinsing.

  • Avoid chlorine green hair with this trick! Wet your hair and apply conditioner prior to swimming to help create a barrier for your hair.

  • Use a professional colour Preserving Shampoo and Conditioner.

Yes! Not only is Gloss Studio committed to finding and using the best products for your hair, but we also work with companies that have strong ethics and commitment to overall health to their consumers and our planet.
