Getting highlights at home doesn’t have to spell dread. As the experts in home colour, we know that it’s easier than you think to get the desired end result. Although there are several highlight colours to choose from, there’s at least one that is ideal for your current shade. If you’re not completely sure which one that is, we even have an article on that right Once you’ve chosen the colour that will work best, you can get started on a brand new look. Before we get too carried away, we’ve put together some pointers. When it comes to getting those gorgeous highlights from the comfort of your own home, here are a few things to keep in mind. 1. Select a highlights product that you can trust By choosing a pack from a provider that you can depend on, you are more likely to end up happy with the finished effect. At Renew, we’ve worked long and hard to bring our customers a range of hair colour highlights that they can rely on.

Beat That Summer Frizz With These Tips

Beat That Summer Frizz With These Tips

Whether you choose blonde, black, brunette or red hair dye, summer frizz is a major hair problem and something you might need to contend with during summer. As temperatures rise and humidity starts to climb, your hair starts to take a beating. Whilst hair colour trends for 2018 are important, hair care tips are too. It’s why we’ve put together our list of tips for fighting that summertime fuzz. No matter your chosen hair colour ideas, here are the ways that you can avoid that dreaded f-word. For starters, we suggest rinsing with cold water whenever you wash your hair. Not only is this nice and cooling on warmer days but it helps seal the hair cuticle. This will prevent any summer frizz and enhance the shine that we’re all after. If you’re a fan of red hair dye like our Wild Fire Renew Perfect Colour, rinsing your hair with carbonated water (soda water) will also help. This is because red hair has a tendency to give into humidity worse than other shades. The low pH level of the soda water will help beat fuzzy hair. Hooray! Using conditioner regularly will help you lock in that necessary moisture. Most of the time, hair can get static because it is dry and lacking in the hydration department. By using a conditioner when you shampoo, you can help add extra nourishment that your tresses really need. You can also use an anti-frizz oil to keep the summer frizz at bay. Using one with added protein will also benefit in the strength and shine department. Every pack of Renew hair dye come...
