Preparing for Fall

1. Deep Condition

Use a great deep conditioner a week prior to your dye appointment. You want to make sure you hair is strong and healthy. Make sure to do this around a week out — too close to your appointment will prohibit the color from fully penetrating.

2. Clarify

Clarify your hair to remove build up at least three days prior to you appointment. This will remove any access build up before you hair gets it's new fall look.

3. Hydrate

Use a hydrating conditioner for one week prior to your appointment, after your clarifying treatment. Hydrating conditioners are great to lock in the moisture without coating the hair too thick to prevent color penetration.
