Tips to Keep Brown Hair Color Exciting!
Brown hair color is the sexiest hair color trend these days! But it’s not the plain old brown but rather the multi-dimensional, rich variations of brown tones that has made it so popular. That should be good news to so many of you with natural brown hair who are looking to add some pizzazz to whatever shade of brown you have!
Adding multiple hues of color is less damaging to your hair than an over-all lightning which entails stripping out more of your natural hair color. Now professional hair colorists are placing multiple hues of brown hair high lights in face framing layers to brighten brown hair and make it pop!
Reddish Brown hair colors with names that evoke one’s appetite like: chocolate, mocha, cappuccino, golden honey and caramel are what you’ll most likely be adding to enhance your hair styles this year!
Now that you paid good money to get a beautiful hair color, how can you protect it from fading?
- Use shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair. Try one with an SPF factor.
- Shampooing strips out hair color so shampoo less often but enough to keep your hair looking clean.
- Use tepid water and not hot water when shampooing
- For long hair, cover mid-shaft and ends with conditioner before shampooing. Just squeeze suds through at the end when needed.
- Wear hats to protect your hair and scalp from too much sun.

Brown Hair Color Glosser and Shine Booster. This brown hair color booster is an easy to use hair color reviving product that adds both color and shine to hair. I’ve used this product and have found that it takes a few times for it to build color on the hair. That’s ok with me; I would prefer it this way as to having it be too dark or harsh. I can’t attest to how it covers gray hair as I rely on a permanent hair color for that, but I imagine if you used it often and had just a bit of gray hair, it will stain it. Here’s what to expect;
- A gel-crème formula you can apply in the shower
- Boosts shine with a high gloss finish and revives color
- Gentle formula, no ammonia or peroxide
- Will not lift or lighten hair color
- For all shades of natural, color-treated or high lighted brown hair
- Contains mild cosmetic dyes and shine boosters which subtly blend away grays
