Hair dying is no longer a new fad.
It has been accepted by most people for the twist and elegance it provides to one's appearance. You can keep your color-treated hair looking lustrous and vivid with appropriate maintenance.
Note that hair color can make hair more porous, making it easier to collect and release moisture. When your hair becomes wet, this can lead to color molecule loss, these recommendations will assist you in protecting your hair color and keeping it looking gorgeous.
Wait Two Days After Coloring Before Shampooing
Wait at least 48 hours, ideally longer, after coloring your hair before shampooing. Even better if you can go three or four days without shampooing. This will allow plenty of time for the color to settle.
On Color-Treated Hair, Product Usage is Crucial
What you use on your hair will affect the color's longevity and the health of your hair in the long run. Colored hair necessitates specific care, so invest on salon-quality products designed for colored hair. Color-protecting shampoos and conditioners can help protect color-treated hair while also adding shine, volume, and luster.
Shampoo Your Color-Treated Hair Less Frequently
Wash your hair less often to avoid your vibrant color being washed away by water. Shampoo only two or three times per week to keep the natural oils that help condition your color-treated hair. This will prolong the life of your color and keep your colored hair healthy, frequent shampooing will wash color off.
Condition Every Time You Shampoo Color
Treated Hair - Always use a color-protecting conditioner after shampooing your color-treated hair. Your color will look shinier and more even if your hair is well-conditioned. Condition the tips of your hair, even if you have fine hair, because they are the oldest and most damaged on your head. Begin at the top of your head and work your way down.
Use Less Heat on Your Hair
Blow dryers, curling irons, and straightening irons should be avoided as much as possible when using dyed hair. Allow color-treated hair to air dry as much as possible. If you're planning to utilize heat, use a heat-protecting style product after you've used your color-safe shampoo and conditioner.
