Kim KardashianWhen Kim’s stylist posted pics of her new hair colour, we wanted to visit the salon too! But silver hair comes with some post-colour care. Read on before you dye.

1 Pick the right products

This colour can turn brassy. Turn to [1] Schwarzkopf Color Freeze Silver Shampoo (R265) and [2] Pro:Voke Touch of Silver Intensive Treatment Conditioner (R99.95) to nourish your strands and make the shade last. 

2 Maintenance is a must 

To get to this shade, Kim’s hair had to go through a serious bleaching process, which can compromise hair strength. Give your strands serious pampering with a weekly mask. We like [3] Kérastase Masque Chroma Captive treatment (R350). 

3 Turn down the heat 

Avoid washing and rinsing your hair with piping hot water. Go tepid for a longer-lasting shade. 

4 Trim regularly 

Straw-like ends (from harsh chemical treatments) can ruin your whole look. A slight trim can give your colour the illusion of a style refresh. 

5 Cut down on heat styling

Excessive heat causes colour to fade. Cut back on heat styling tools and make sure to always use a protector like [4] Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Styling Oil (R435).
