Brown is a wonderfully full and rich colour. That’s why, in some cases, it risks being too uniform. Find out how to play with shades to give movement and depth!
Chocolate and hazelnut, chestnut and coffee, or even caramel: the name of several shades of brown recalls the food on our table. That’s because it’s the natural colour par excellence, it gives a sense of fullness and roundness.
Precisely because it’s so rich, in certain cases brown can become a little flat and uniform. Over time, hairstylists from around the world have invented new techniques to lighten brown: highlights, luminous reflects, balayage. What would happen, though, if we tried to make the colour darker instead of lighter?
Brown hair may seem easy to take care of, especially if compared to blonde or grey. Where dyed hair is concerned, however, it’s always a good idea to be cautious: environmental agents, such as the sun and the wind, or smog, pool chlorine and salt can make your colourlose its intensity. Here’s what products to use for brown hair that’salways glossy and vibrant.
The MINU shampoo from the Essential Haircare line is a must-have for coloured hair. Enriched with extract of Salina Caper from the Slow Food Presidio, its formula is characterised by a rich and full-bodied lather.
MINU shampoo cleanses gently, protects the colour and keeps it glossy for longer. To maximise its effectiveness, use it alongside the other products of the MINU family.
To breathe new life into medium brown hair, we recommend using the Alchemic Chocolate family: shampoo and conditioner with coloured pigments that help preserve the deep shine of dark hair.
The shampoo is used normally. The conditioner, on the other hand, should be distributed with a comb on towel-dried hair, and left to act for 5-8 minutes. At the end of that time, rinse and you’re all set.
Lastly, if you’re an active girl, like the Californian surfers from whom we drew inspiration for this look, you might love The Restless Circle.
It’s an invisible mask that can be applied whenever you like, before your yoga class or your running session. You can also leave it on for an hour: nobody will notice. It’s easy to rinse out in the shower and your hair will be nourished before you know it.
