Copper hair colour is the trend in 2022

The tone of copper can be as subtle or bold as you like. From a golden to a red and orange or even pink tone.

There is a spectrum of shades you can choose from and it really depends on your skin tone.

Fair complexions suit any copper shade, and light to medium complexions work best with auburn or rich caramel tones. For darker skin tones, a flat, neutral, dusty copper works so it doesn’t look too orange against the skin.

If your skin has more yellow undertones, a golden copper would be the best shade, whereas orange copper suits more neutral skin undertones.

The rose gold or pink copper shade is suitable for tanned skin to create a pop of colour, and red copper will suit very fair skin as it creates a beautiful contrast.

Why does red hair color fade so fast?

Because the colour molecules in red pigment are much larger than the molecules in other colours, the first few times you try to colour your hair red, it won’t fully penetrate the cuticle and stain the hair. This also means it slips out of the cuticle faster with each wash. Even with the most talented colourists in the best salons, red hair dye will noticeably fade in around four weeks. It's important to only use hair care products designed for colour-treated-hair, and protect your strands from things like heat, chlorine, and environmental pollution.

These tips will help you maintain your red hair in between touch-up

Don’t wash your hair for at least 2 days post-color - Every time you expose your colour-treated hair to water, you run the risk of losing pigment. Especially after colouring, your hair cuticle needs time to close and stay closed. The usual rule of thumb when dyeing your hair is to wait 24 hours before washing. But with red hair dye, it takes a little longer.

Use cold water when you wash your hair - The temperature of the water plays a huge role in how fast your colour fades. It’s best to ditch the hot showers in favour of cold showers to keep your red hair vibrant. Hot water opens up the hair cuticle, allowing the colour to slip out.

Use products suitable for colour-treated hair - When it comes to shampoo, it’s important to always use colour-safe hair products. These types of products contain antioxidants, proteins, and amino acids to strengthen the hair cuticle and prevent pigment from leaking out.
