- Go heatless if you can – or as often as possible!
- Lengthen time between washes – it’ll keep harsh shampoos from stripping color. Rock a pony tail on ‘dirty’ days.
- Get a colored shampoo and use it like a treatment – toners will help the color last.
- Use an oil as a pre-poo and a post-shower treatment.
- Get a trim every 2 months – chop off split ends before they have the chance to damage your hair.
- Protect your hair from the sun – wear a hat in harsh sunlight.
- Protect that ash brown hair from saltwater – rinse with freshwater before ocean swimming, salt dulls hair’s brilliance.
To protect your hair shaft, keep styling to a minimum and hit it just a few larger sections of hair with a curler for a styled yet still natural look.
Try coating hair with coconut oil 30 minutes before you shower for a pre-poo boost. Post shower, coat damp strands in a lighter oil to maintain that shine.
Ash Brown Ombre
When it comes to growing out highlights and ash brown color, ombre may be the very best light ash brown hair color to choose from. Lighter or darker color on the roots that fades to the opposite hue gets more life out of your hair color and fades beautifully as time goes on. You will save money on top of it all by lengthening time in between salon appointments.
The beauty of ombre lies in its ability to fade from you natural color, but don’t be afraid of blurring the ombre lines and wear both tones with confidence!

The best part about ash brown ombre is it’s half-hearted commitment to the style. You don’t have to do an entire beauty overhaul, just simply dust the lower-half of hair with that fresh ash brown color and let it grow out beautifully.
Before ombre, roots were a bad thing. If you stay within the same tone as your natural color but lighten the ends by a shade or two, your grown out roots won’t look old, they’ll be up to the latest trend!
Ombre is obviously great regardless of your hair type, but a luscious blow-out displays the style in a polished way.
