There's nothing like having fresh brows, especially if they've been colored, but what if you could make them stay even longer? Following the proper aftercare instructions can assist to keep your brows looking salon-fresh for weeks after your treatment. Here are our top five must-know suggestions.
Leave it to the professionals.
It's always best to see a professional if you want serious, long-lasting results. At-home dyes aren't the same as professional dyes, and you won't get the benefit of a color match or professional application.
Make sure they're dry.
This will most likely be your eyebrow stylist's first piece of aftercare advise, so make sure you follow it. Allow at least 12 hours for the colour to settle before washing or touching your brows. If you're a frequent swimmer, be aware that chlorine can diminish the life of your tint.
Utilize a specialized serum.
Do you find that no matter what you do, your tint disappears quickly? To help your eyebrow tint last longer, invest in a serum. To assist hold in color, our Tint Lock Serum binds each brow hair with an invisible, flexible film. It also contains amino acid action to rebuild and strengthen hair, as well as condition and care for your cherished brows.
When it comes to skincare, be cautious.
Even if you're not using the cream directly to your brows, anti-aging chemicals like glycolic acid and vitamin A might cause color to disappear faster. If you want to keep your tint fresh, stay away from your forehead when applying these types of products. If your oil cleanser is stripping the color off your skin, try switching to a gel or cream cleanser. To protect your brows from the sun, we recommend using an SPF of at least 30 on a daily basis (your skin will thank you too).
Don't over-pamper them.
We understand that stroking your freshly shaped brows with a spoolie brush feels great, but be careful. Brushing too much can cause your colour to lift and hairs to fall out faster than they should. That's why it's ideal to brush them in place and then use a brow gel to keep them in place throughout the day. When it's time for your next tint visit, opt for a tinted brow gel to add a slick of color.
