How can we keep the beautiful look of salon color?

The trick to preventing damage & color fading is to conduct proper at-home care after color treatment!

Having the perfect hair color will enhance your charms and even make your expressions come alive. Today, hair color is an indispensable part of women's fashion. Let's learn the proper at-home care for color-treated hair so that you can enjoy salon color proactively.

SPa-Expert Yuichi Kishi talks about how hair color can enhance the beauty of hair 

If you feel hesitant about dyeing your hair, you should look for a salon with a SPa-Expert - a specialist who checks the hair & scalp conditions of each customer and selects the right color for her hair.  
If you are worried about “not getting the desired color” or “the color fading soon after color treatment,” the Spa-Expert will give you tips on the proper at-home care to address those concerns.  
We talked with Yuichi Kishi from Chara Chalone Ikebukuro, a salon with a high reputation for coloring techniques.



Proper At-Home Care Is the Key to Beautiful Hair Color

I love colored hair, and my expertise is color gradation, highlights, and double process. I’m fortunate to have customers of all ages who proactively enjoy hair color.  
I feel most rewarded when the desired image is achieved and I see a happy smile. I always tell my customers that proper at-home care is the key to beautiful hair color.  
Of course I give my best to create a beautiful finish at the salon, but maintaining that beautiful condition relies on the care given at home afterwards. But this is actually easy to do. You can maintain that salon-color finish just by using hair care for colored hair during 1~2 weeks after color treatment.  
Of course the color will somewhat fade over time, but it will stay looking beautiful because it will fade evenly. By changing the way you conduct at-home care after color treatment, you will learn how fun hair color can be.  
I actually have many customers who say they no longer feel hesitant toward hair color ever since they learned the proper at-home care and are now enjoying it to the fullest.
