Love changing the shade of your hair? Or do
you need to cover up some greying strands? Whatever your reason is for coloring
your tresses, you shouldn’t stop there. Maintenance of your mane's new hue is
just as important to keep the shade looking vibrant longer.
We’ve compiled a list of six tips to make
your hair color last.
Prepare your hair for coloring. Before
you go to your coloring appointment, prep your hair first by using deep
conditioning treatments to make the hair stronger and more primed to receive
the new color. A clarifying shampoo will also clear off all dirt and residue
that might block the hair from receiving the full dose of color.
Use good quality coloring products only.
Ask your stylist to use only professional colors that have excellent
moisturizing ingredients. Some brands contain conditioning properties that
continue to treat the hair even weeks after application.
Wait three days before shampooing. After
a hair coloring session, wait a full three days before shampooing your hair.
The hair’s cuticle layer is open when being treated for color and it may take
days before this layer fully closes. Washing your hair so soon after coloring
it might lead to a lot of the pigment being washed away.
Use purple shampoo. Blonde colors are
some of the hardest to maintain. Common problems for dark-haired people who
decide to go the blonde route is how to keep it from looking brassy as time
goes by. Purple shampoo tones the brass down and helps keep your light shade
looking much more natural. One good example of this is the Fanola no yellow shampoo.
Wash hair less often. Frequent
shampooing not only strips away the hair’s natural oils, but it also washes off
a bit of the dye every time. Shampooing every 2-3 days would be gentler on your
hair and its new shade.
Use a heat protectant. Colored hair does
not respond well to heat. If using a hair straightener or curling iron cannot
be avoided, apply a heat protectant on your hair first before using those
