    Before we go on to the care you should take with your balayage hair, let’s give you some other important information first, okay?

    • How long does it last?

    The main doubt when someone is going to make a change in their hair is how long it will last! After all, we want our hair to stay with the new effect as long as possible, don’t we? Well, to answer this question, when well cared for, balayage lasts approximately 6 months before needing to be touched up by a hairstylist! This longevity is due to the fact that you do not need to touch up the roots, but only take care not to yellow the blonde at the ends.

    • How does it work?

    The process to give balayage lights to the hair, although simple, must be done by a good professional! After all, the bleaching technique will be used to give the effect. In addition, there is more than one type of balayage: there is the total balayage (which takes several layers of hair) and the partial balayage, which takes only the upper strands. So go to a professional who understands this technique!

    • Does it damage the hair?

    Like any process that involves changing the color of the hair, balayage can damage hair. However, this is where the importance of the care we are going to tell you about comes in. When well taken care of, after the balayage your hair will remain healthy and beautiful!

    As with any hair that has undergone a chemical process, it is ESSENTIAL to return nutrients and moisture to your hair. Therefore, the main care to take with your balayage hair is conditioning! Whether making use of hair masks and conditioners, it is important that you opt for products specifically formulated for blonde or dyed hair. 

    Our recommendation is the Ultra Control Hair Protein mask from Sleeker Plus, specially made for blonde or dyed hair! With 12 essential oils, this product will give you all the nutrients your hair needs.


    If before balayage you were in the habit of washing your hair every day, you can kiss that habit goodbye! To ensure that your highlights stay their best color for a long time, limit your hair washing to 2-3 times a week. This way you won’t contribute to yellowing and/or fading of the color!


    Many women who do balayage are fans of using heat styling tools – and you can’t blame them, since balayage with waves is one of the most beautiful hairstyles! However, it’s very important to take the right care to make sure that your hair isn’t damaged by the heat too… 

    Therefore, limit the use of these tools and whenever you use them, don’t forget to use a heat protectant, like the Açaí Rio Magic Smoothing Thermal Protection Spray. This incredible product from the Brazilian brand RIOBELO protects your hair from heat, as well as contributes to leaving it soft and shiny!

    Well, now you are more than ready to take care of your gorgeous balayage hair! Remember the importance of choosing cosmetics for dyed or blonde hair and high-quality brands, such as the Brazilian Sleeker Plus and RIOBELO – both available on the Metro Brazil website!
