Who doesn’t love indulging in a little creamy caramel now and then? And when it comes to your hair color, adding in caramel tones can add a touch of sweetness to your look. We’re totally loving caramel brown hair for the spring and summer months. This warm, golden shade is beautiful on just about everyone, especially those with warm skin tones. From light brown caramel hair to a dark caramel hair color, there are so many possibilities. Want to get in on the brown hair color fun? Here’s what you need to know about how to get a caramel brown color, as well as how to take care of your stunning new hue.
Caramel hair is marked by gorgeous, golden, sun-kissed tones that can brighten up your appearance. Caramel brown hair features all the same attributes, but those golden highlights are blended with a brown base to create a rich look. Want to get a caramel color at home? Consider it done! Keep reading to see which coloring product is right for you.
Try the L’Oréal Paris Superior Preference Fade-Defying Shine Permanent Hair Color in Medium Golden Brown which provides long lasting color and a luminous shine to the hair. It’s also fade-defying for weeks which means you won’t have to worry about frequent touch-ups.
L’Oréal Paris Féria in Bronzed Brown delivers gorgeous multidimensional color that never looks dull or flat while also remaining gentle on the hair.
L’Oréal Paris Excellence Créme Permanent Triple Protection Hair Color in Light Golden Brown is not only a beautiful caramel shade, but this dye also provides 100% gray hair coverage. It’s also formulated with a Pro-Keratine complex that protects the hair from damage while it colors.
These hair dyes are beautiful light to medium brown color options with tons of warmth—perfect for the hotter months. If you’re interested in going the salon route, ask your colorist about balayage highlights, which can be a low maintenance way to add caramel color to your hair without having to constantly touch up your roots.
Once you’ve achieved your gorgeous caramel hue, you’ll need to take measures to make sure it stays in prime condition. It’s time to elevate your hair care routine to keep your strands in proper shape. Follow these tips to help your color-treated mane look its best.
Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner for color-treated hair is vital, as some of them have ingredients that can strip the artificial color from your hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner. These products are made specifically for color treated hair—so they’ll help to keep your hair color from fading while also providing shine.
Show your hair a little extra love by giving it some deep conditioning. Once or twice a week, use the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Power Restore Multi Use Treatment in place of your conditioner. When you’re done with your shampoo, apply the hair mask, and leave it on your hair for three to five minutes before washing out. You’ll be left with smooth, deeply conditioned strands. If you want even more hydration, this treatment can also be used as a leave-in product. Simply apply it to your hair wet or dry and style as usual.
While warm, rich hair colors are undeniably stunning, it’s not uncommon for them to turn a bit brassy after some time. If you start to notice undesirable hues of yellow or orange peeking through, reach for a purple shampoo and conditioner once a week. We recommend the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Purple Shampoo for Color Treated Hair and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Purple Conditioner for Color Treated Hair. The purple pigments in these products help to neutralize the brass and keep your hair color looking vibrant between coloring sessions.
A few weeks after achieving your caramel hair color, grab a hair gloss to maintain the integrity of your hue. What used to be a treatment that required a visit to the salon, can now be done in the comfort of your home in just one step. The L’Oréal Paris Le Color Gloss One Step In-Shower Toning Gloss makes it easy to give yourself an at-home gloss treatment. Not only does it enhance the hair's natural color and tone, but it also gives it an extra dose of shine and deep conditioning. To enhance your caramel-colored hair, opt for the shade Rich Brunette.
As wonderful as a piping hot shower might feel after a long day, it’s not the best match for your new hair color. Super-hot water can not only dry out your hair, but can also make your caramel brown hair color look dull or even start to fade. Turn down the dial to help keep your colored strands healthy and shiny.
