Colour fade of your hair system particularly in Australia can be a real problem. A lot of men who haven’t previously coloured their hair so they don’t fully understand why their hair systems fade or lose colour. People often think that it’s only due to sun bleaching. But the crux of the matter is that the majority of the hair that gets made into hair systems is black so the manufacturer must bleach/lighten the hair which brings out unwanted red/orange or gold tones. To counteract these unwanted tones the manufacturer will then place an ash based colour over the top. This process is to enable the manufacturer to match the colour of the hair system to the clients existing hair. Over time, some sun bleaching occurs but shampooing the hair system also removes the ashen colour from your hair and you are left with unnatural orange/gold tones that no longer match your natural hair.
Permanent colours don’t work because they contain hydrogen peroxide which makes the hair more porous and dry, the more you use a colour containing peroxide the more quickly your hair will lose colour. Some semipermanent colours stain the hair and a lot of the ashen colours have too much purple in them to counteract the gold tones which leave the hair an unnatural colour. After trying many different types of hair colour over the years, I have come to the conclusion that an Ashen based conditioner in the correct shade is the best way to preserve the colour and condition of your hair system.
