Tips for Making Colors Last

Beautiful hair color is the perfect way to transform any hair, but are you getting the most out of your dye. There’s nothing worse than when locks lose their color too soon and it quickly turn gorgeous hair into a tired, faded look. Protecting the appearance and investment of your color-treated hair should be one of your top priorities when it comes to hair care. After you have your hair freshly colored, follow a few easy steps to make sure it keeps its right tone for longer. 

  1. When it comes time to dry let the air take care of your home instead of a dryer. The heat in a hairdryer leeches color out of hair fast so you are better off avoiding it whenever possible.
  2. Get the right shampoo. You’re wasting a major opportunity to protect your color if you aren’t using the best product. Stock your shower with color-protecting shampoo and conditioner for washing that only leaves hair clean, but bright too.
  3. Speaking of shampooing, wait 72 hours before washing your hair. That way the color has a chance to fully set all the way through the hair. 
  4. Apply treatments designed to shield hair color from the effects of fading. Certain shades require extra care and sealing the tone under an enriching treatment is an easy way to lock in color.
  5. If you’ve got a brighter color like pink, blue, or purple add a little of the dye to your shampoo. Each was refreshing color extended the tone for longer.
