Blonde is one of the most beloved colorations of Brazilian women, but it is also the one that most damages the hair . It is a difficult task to keep the locks with a flawless color and well-treated appearance, but nothing that an expert’s opinion does not help change. Marcos Proença is behind some of the most coveted blondes in the country: Helena Bordon, Mica Rocha, Mari Weickert – all color with the hairdresser. Want to know how he does to keep those women’s hair always clean despite the chemistry? Check out 5 tips straight from the expert’s lounge!
DO NOT HESITATE TO TOUCH UP!
There are many ways to get blonde: it can be through strands, full coloring or just lightening the tips. For all these cases, there is a certain time to renew the coloration and Marcos Proença gives the coordinates for each one:
Total coloring: If you have painted your hair in full, you need to do the root retouch every 30 to 40 days.
Blonde lights: can retouch every 60 days, but if the woman leaves the root more natural and the tip clearer, she can retouch every 90 days.
Blondes who paint white hair: the ideal is to retouch every 16 days because whites appear on the contour of the face and the woman is uncomfortable.
When only the tips are clear: If the woman likes the technique in which the tip becomes lighter and the root completely dark – like the Californians, it can retouch only twice a year. This is because the person does not bother with the dark root: it is purposeful, it wants that very dramatic effect .
DO NOT ACCUMULATE INK ON INK WITHOUT
According to Marcos Proença, a lot of people ruin the blonde by applying paint over an area that was already good: “A big mistake is to apply bleach or paint on the length and ends of the hair every time you tweak the root: you can lighten the hair where it does not need or apply color where it was already in the desired tone, “explains the hairdresser.
BLONDES CAN NOT BE AFRAID OF SCISSORS
Cutting your hair often is very important for anyone who wants to have a always handsome blond. “Making a cut every 45 days is perfect to keep the tips healthy, beautiful, with balance and movement,” says the hairdresser, ensuring that the wires are always looking well maintained.
COLORING BEFORE, PROGRESSIVE AFTER: THIS IS THE ORDER
Proença reveals that blondes can make progressive , but ensures that there is a right order for these chemicals: “Progressive can be done until the same day of color or lights, but it needs to be done later,” he says. The reason is very simple: when coloring the locks, the cuticles of the thread open to change color and the effect of progressive is just the opposite – it closes the cuticles of the hair.
HYDRATION BEFORE, AFTER AND THROUGHOUT THE YEAR!
For a handsome blonde, Proença reveals that the secret is not to neglect hydration. “Abuse of hydration and nutrition in the week that you will make the color: in the day is best not, but a day or two before it is worth doing a treatment,” says the hairdresser. After the coloring this care continues and, according to the expert, they have no date to finish: “a woman has to take care of her hair the whole year, not only when she will undergo chemical processes – when it is natural that she is even more worried “She should do hydration and nutrition on the wires every week or every 15 days – this will keep her hair always healthy,” she says.
