Dying your hair is always fun and exciting, as well as a real commitment! The spectrum of colours is just waiting for your hair to embrace, whether you want purple or green, we say do it! You want to be sure once you’ve invested the time and money to get that perfect colour, that it stays properly maintained. That may mean coming in every three months for touch-ups, but there are also many precautions you can take at home to ensure that vibrant colour stays long lasting:
- Shampoos less. Shampoo can strip the colour and natural oils from the hair. Instead, try to wash your hair between 2-3 times a week. When you do use Shampoo, be sure to purchase the hair colour protection brands.
- Use less heat on coloured hair when styling, as it is more susceptible to damage. When you do style your hair make sure to use a heat protectant. This also goes for showering; try to rinse your hair with cool water instead of hot.
- Condition like crazy! Conditioner will lock in the moisture to your treated hair and help retain the colour longer. Before going to bed apply leave-in conditioners as well as applying a deep conditioner mask to your hair weekly.
