WHAT IS SILVER BLUE HAIR?
You likely have an idea of what silver blue hair consists of, based on the name alone, but it’s time to dive in a bit more. This trendy shade is all about pairing shimmery notes of silver with sultry hints of blue for a gorgeous combination. You can totally customize this hair color to suit your needs. From a light blue-grey hair color for an icier take on the trend to a darker hue that offers a more mysterious look, the possibilities are plentiful when it comes to silver blue hair!
HOW TO GET SILVER BLUE HAIR AT HOME
Excited to bring silver blue hair to life? We bet you are! However, before you start your journey to silver blue hair, it’s important to know what you should expect. Simply put, silver blue hair can take a bit of work to achieve, especially if you’re starting out with a dark base color. Not to mention, if you’re seeking silver blue hair for the long term, using permanent hair color will require first bleaching your strands. With that being said, it may be best to enlist the help of a professional colorist. After all, it may take multiple sessions and plenty of hair toning to achieve your desired silver blue hair color.
However, if you’re really more interested in DIY hair color, we do know one foolproof way to embrace a silver and blue hair color: temporary hair color. Since this type of color washes out with your next shampoo, hair color mistakes won’t be a concern.
To use the sprays, try creating a silver and blue ombré. Spray the blue shade from your roots to mid-way through your length, and follow up with the silver shade from the middle of your mane to the ends for a faded effect.
For an all-over, blended blue-grey hair look, use your fingertips to apply the hair makeup throughout your mane. Use a comb or brush hair to distribute the hair makeup evenly, then wash your hands, and style as desired. Voila!
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF SILVER BLUE HAIR
Decided to transform your mane into a blue-meets-silver hair masterpiece? Congratulations, we’re sure it looks gorgeous on you! It’s worth noting, if you took the plunge with permanent hair color, you’ll need to switch things up on the hair care front to keep your new color in mint condition. Keep reading for five hair care tips that will help your new shimmering blue-grey hair color go the distance.
TIP #1: UPGRADE YOUR HAIR CARE SYSTEM
It’s time to bid your tried-and-true hair care products goodbye for an offering that caters to color-treated strands. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. Once or twice a week, swap out your conditioner for a hair mask to show your strands some extra TLC.
TIP #2: WASH WITH LUKEWARM WATER
While hot water may feel like a relaxing treat for your skin in the shower, when it comes to your newly colored strands, you’ll have to cool things down. Super-hot H2O strips hair of its natural oils, leaving you with dry and lackluster hair. Always turn down the dial to stay in the clear.
TIP #3: MAKE HEAT PROTECTANT YOUR BFF
Before you reach for any heat tool, it’s important to protect your strands from the heat with a heat protectant. Spritz the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Straight Iron Heatspray onto hair for 450-degree heat protection.
TIP #4: SKIP THE HEAT
You don’t need to rely on your heat-styling tools to achieve a gorgeous style. In fact, heat-free styling is a great way to give your strands a break and cut down your styling time. Apply an egg-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, scrunch from the roots to ends, and call it a day. As a result, you’ll have soft and bouncy curls to enjoy!
TIP #5: PREPARE FOR TOUCH-UPS
When it comes to colored hair, there’s no denying that touch-ups are inevitable. So, to help keep your silver and blue hair color looking it’s very best, you’ll want to keep up with your roots and refresh your color as needed.
