How to care for your hair with surface highlights

If you’ve just added surface highlights to your hair, it’s important to take extra care of it so that your new look lasts as long as possible. Here are a few tips for how to care for your hair with surface highlights:

  • Avoid washing your hair every day. Washing your hair too often can strip it of its natural oils, which can lead to dryness and frizziness. If you can manage to go two or three days between washes, your hair will be much healthier in the long run. Try a dry shampoo to stretch the time between shampoos. We carry Virtue’s Dry Shampoo and Mr Smith’s Dry Shampoo.
  • Use a heat protectant when styling your hair. High temperatures can damage your hair, so it’s important to use a heat protectant before using any hot tools like a curling iron or flat iron. Virtue’s 6-in-1 Styler is perfect for this.
  • Avoid using too much heat. While it’s important to use a heat protectant, you should also avoid using too much heat on your hair. Try to use lower temperatures whenever possible, and avoid using hot tools on damp hair.
  • Use a wide-tooth comb or a wet brush to detangle your hair. When you’re done washing your hair, use a wide-tooth comb or wet brush to detangle it before styling. Start at your ends and work your way up-to your scalp. This will help to prevent any damage caused by tugging and pulling on your hair.
  • Let your hair air dry whenever possible. If you can, try to let your hair air dry rather than using a blow dryer. The heat from a blow dryer can damage your hair, so it’s best to avoid using it whenever possible.
  • Use a cool air setting when blow drying your hair. If you do have to use a blow dryer, make sure to use the cool air setting to avoid damaging your hair.
  • Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet. Brushing your hair when it’s wet can cause damage and split ends, so it’s best to wait until it’s dry before brushing it.
  • Use a hair serum to add extra shine. If your hair is feeling a little bit dry or frizzy, try using a hair serum to add some extra shine. We recommend Mr Smith’s Serum because it’s weightless and restorative. It contains Argan, Jojoba and hemp seed oil that moisturizes, while strengthening damaged and brittle hair. This antioxidant-rich, leave-in product is specifically designed to promote stronger, healthier hair, while providing added heat and UV protection. Plus it’s PETA certified and vegan.
  • Get a trim every 6-8 weeks. To keep your hair looking healthy, it’s important to get a trim every 6-8 weeks. This will help to remove any damaged or split ends that may have built up over time.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your hair looking healthy and shiny with surface highlights.
