We know you love your hair right after you get it colored. Unfortunately, sometimes the color starts to fade faster than we’d like. Both the type of hair color products and your hair care routine effect how long your hair color will last. Follow some or even all of these tips to get your beautiful hair color to last longer.
Condition your hair before your trip to the salon – A few days before you get your hair colored use a clarifying sulfate-free shampooand quality conditioner to add extra moisture. Doing so, will help the color adhere to your hair.
Wait 48 hours after color treatment to shampoo your hair – When coloring your hair the surface level of the hair is opened up and color is absorbed. It takes a few days for the surface level to close. Shampooing immediately after a color treatment will result in a loss of color.
Use quality hair care products– Ask your hair salon to recommend hair products that are specifically designed for hair color and if possible do not wash your hair every day.
Use a cooler water temperature when shampooing your hair. Hot water will dry out your hair and open the hair to color loss. After shampooing, allow the conditioner to absorb into your hair. Rinse with cold water to seal in the protein.
Avoid excessive sunlight. Excessive exposure to sunlight is one of the quickest ways to lose your hair’s color. When outdoors use a hat when possible to avoid damage and fading from the sun. Ask your hair stylist to recommend a quality hair product designed to protect your hair and your scalp from sun damage.
