How do I take care of brunette hair?
Tip 1 – Take a break from heat styling

It’s no secret that excessive heat styling can cause damage to your hair. So, does this mean you have to give up heat styling altogether? Of course not. However, it helps to take a break from time to time. There are plenty of other ways you can add texture to your hair, like using a hair mousse. The best part? You can enhance your brunette beauty without making those terrific tresses dry and brittle.

Tip 2 – Keep colouring as low-maintenance as possible

Do you dye your hair? Next time you take a trip to the salon it might be worth doing some research. There are plenty of gorgeous brunette shades out there and choosing one that is low-maintenance will minimise your number of treatments. Not only will this help you preserve your hair’s hydration, but it will also take away the burden of awkward roots.

Tip 3 – Protect your hair from the sun

The sun may look bright and lovely but much like our skin, exposure can cause damage to our hair too. Brunette hair can turn brassier and orange in tone because of the sun. Hair masks and nourishing conditioners are great for protection to help you overcome this issue.

Tips 4 – Get a regular trim

Do you keep missing your hair appointments? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there. Try and make rearranging a priority. Trimming your hair regularly not only encourages growth but helps it maintain a healthy look and feel. Those broken and split ends will soon be a thing of the past and you’ll have a healthy head of hair you’re proud to show off.

Tip 5 – Perfect your haircare routine with the right products

Finding the right products is an effective way to bring your brunette back to life. Not only can it enhance the colour of dark and light brunette hair but it can also keep unwanted shades at bay. All you need is three essentials: shampoo, conditioner and a treatment. If you’re struggling to find the perfect products, Aussie have just the routine you need to get started…
