In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know about balayage and its longevity, ensuring you make the most of your gorgeous new look.


Understanding Balayage:

Firstly, let’s delve into what exactly balayage is. Unlike traditional highlighting techniques that involve foils and precise sectioning, balayage is a freehand, painted on method that creates a natural, sun-kissed effect. This technique allows for seamless blending and soft, gradual colour transitions, resulting in a low-maintenance and effortlessly chic hairstyle.

The Lifespan of Balayage:

To understand why balayage fades over time, it’s essential to grasp the hair growth cycle. Hair typically grows at a rate of around half an inch per month, with individual strands progressing through three main stages: anagen (growth), catagen (transition) and telogen (resting). As new hair grows in, the previously coloured sections gradually move further away from the roots, resulting in noticeable regrowth.

Maintenance Tips to Prolong Balayage:

While this technique is renowned for its low-maintenance nature, proper care and upkeep are essential for extending its lifespan. Here are some top tips from our expert stylists at Joshua Tree Salon:-

Use Colour-Safe Products: opt for sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for coloured hair to prevent premature fading and maintain vibrancy.

Our Hair Stylist Suggestion: ‘Botanical repair is great for coloured hair and it’s also sulphate free.’

Protect Against UV Damage: Just like your skin, your hair can be affected by UV rays which can lead to colour fade and dryness. Shield your strands from the sun’s harmful effects by wearing a hat or using UV-protectant hair products.
