Hair Care Tips to Extend the Life of Your Color

After leaving the salon we all want the results to last as long as possible, especially your new color. Coloring your hair too often can cause damage, but you don’t want to walk around with your hair faded and dull. The good news is, you don’t have to. If you follow these easy tips you will keep your color vibrant longer, helping to prevent over-processing and saving you time and money.

Don’t Wash Right Away

The wait time after coloring may vary based on the type of color and processes used, but you should wait as long as possible before washing your hair. You need to allow the color time to fully set, otherwise, you are just washing your color down the drain. Your stylist will let you know how long you should wait until your first shampoo.

Shampoo Less Often

Washing your hair too often not only strips it of its natural oils, but it will prematurely fade your color. Most people only need to shampoo their hair a couple of times per week. There are color-safe dry shampoos available to help keep your hair looking and smelling fresh between shampoos. You can also give your hair a good scrub and rinse with cool water and follow with a color-safe leave-in conditioner to freshen up between washes.

Turn Down the Heat

Turning down the temperature in the shower can not only cut down on frizz, but it can also preserve your color. Hot water opens the cuticle of your hair which allows color to escape, and the rough texture of the open cuticle results in frizz. Cool water keeps the cuticle closed which means color and moisture are locked in, and your hair will be smoother as well. Avoid heat styling whenever possible, but when you must, keep the settings as low as possible and use a thermal protectant formulated for color-treated hair.

Use Specially Formulated Products

Products for color-treated hair are specially formulated to help extend the life of your color. They clean gently to minimize fading. They contain nourishing ingredients to strengthen and protect your hair from damage to keep it healthy. Color-treated hair needs special care, so be sure to give it the products it needs.
