How to make your new brunette color look glossy

Congratulations, you've taken the jump and decided to update your hair color to a beautiful brunette shade. But how do you get the high shine needed to properly show off your locks so that everybody notices your new hair color? Give your look some life with these coloring, haircare and styling tips from the experts.

Glossy hair = healthy hair. So make the most of your new hair color with maximum shine and the perfect swish!

Shine starts in the shower

Brilliant brunette hair color starts with a wash. If you're using regular shampoo and conditioner for all hair types, you won't be getting the best results. Try a tailored treatment formulated for colored hair such as the Vitamino Color AO-X Shampoo and Conditioner, alternated once a week with a hydrating hair masque to keep your locks healthy-looking.

The importance of styling

To prevent dull, flyaway hair caused by heat damage, try to use your heated styling tools as little as possible, and always use a heat protectant like the Tecni.Art Constructor thermo-active spray. A flat paddle brush will also help keep your hair smooth and glossy.

To show off your shiny hair, opt for loose styles that have a section of hair draped over the front of the face, so that your glossy locks are the first thing that people see. A side part is also a way of drawing attention to hair color and shine, as it allows a large section to sweep over your head.

Tone-on-tone keeps hair looking glossy

To keep your brunette hair looking super-shiny, a tone-on-tone "top-up" like Dia Richesse High-Visibility is a semi-permanent hair color that enhances your shade, boosting your color. It gradually fades out over time, so you don't need to worry about roots showing, and is the first tone-on-tone color to visibly show even on dark hair. Up to 15 levels of intensity can be achieved, allowing you and your hair stylist to create a personalized color that sets you apart from the crowd!
