You’ve finally achieved the perfect shade for your hair and coloring, but it doesn’t last long. Just one or two weeks after finding that ideal color, your hair is dull and faded. What can you do about it? There are many ways you can protect your hair color and keep it vibrant.
Extend the Life of Your Hair Color
Your hair color doesn’t have to be boring half of the time. Next time you dye your hair, use these tips to achieve and keep the color you want.
Add a bit of hair dye to your shampoo:
Save a tiny bit of your hair dye and stir it into your shampoo. This touches up your color a little bit every time you wash your hair.
But avoid over-conditioning:
After you dye your hair, over moisturizing it can lead to dull color. Don’t use heavy conditioners.
Use hair products with SPF:
SPF can protect your skin from fading and sun damage. Finish your hairstyle with an SPF-enhanced product.
Avoid super-hot water:
Hot water strips color from hair. While showering, use lukewarm water.
Utilize salon-quality dye:
Store-bought dye may fade rapidly, so spend the extra money to have your hair done by a professional.
With these tips, your monthly hair coloring appointment may be able to wait for six or eight weeks!
