According to an expert hairdresser, you should prepare for your hairdressing appointment at least two weeks before you leave.

Most women could save themselves and their stylist time by preparing several things before a planned trip to the hairdresser.

It all starts two weeks before the appointment – but only if you’re someone who uses purple shampoo or toner.

“Two weeks before your appointment, stop toning your hair at home,” said Tom Smith, hairstylist and international creative color director for Evo Hair. Charm.

“Purple shampoo or homemade color-enhancing toners are fantastic for keeping your color salon fresh, but let them wash out a bit before you see your stylist so they can have a clear view of where to go. find your hair without them.”

He also recommends using an Olaplex No. 3 treatment seven days before you go, as this will help “boost” the quality of your hair before your appointment.

This is useful for you because the healthier your hair, the more options you will have when it comes to coloring – and you also won’t have to cut as much if you don’t want to.

Tom adds that it’s also a good idea to give your hair a “detox” by using a cleansing shampoo or mineral remover before visiting the salon.

According to the hairstylist, Color Wow’s Dream Filter is a good filter to use.

He also busted another myth about showing up to a date with dirty hair – revealing that stylists actually prefer to work on clean hair.

Tom concluded, “Most hairdressers prefer to work on relatively clean hair, with the exception of scalp bleaching services, where a little buildup of natural oils will actually help protect your scalp from irritation.

“You wouldn’t go to the dentist without brushing your teeth, would you?”

Tom advises that this be done a day before your appointment.
