Cool skin tones generally have a blue or pink tint in them. Go for cool colours for your hair, look for words like “ash,” “platinum” and “champagne” in the shade name.
Moisturizing the treated hair
If you want your hair to retain the colour and look good for a longer period, keep them as moisturized as possible.
