How To Keep Your Hair Colour Treatment From Fading

Getting a professional hair colour treatment can definitely be exciting as well as costly, so it only makes sense that you’d want to get the most out of it and ensure that your colour lasts for as long as possible. Unfortunately, due to the chemical nature of hair colour, it does tend to fade over time and under certain circumstances. So how do you maintain your colour?

Wait Two Days Before Washing

Once you get home from your hair colour treatment appointment, you should try and wait at least two days before you wash or shampoo your hair. This allows your colour to settle.

Use Sulphate-Free Products

Sulphate is an ingredient in many shampoos and conditioners, as well as other hair products. This ingredient is known to strip your hair over time, so it is best to avoid it if possible.

Wear A Hat

The sun can really take it out of your hair. To protect your hair from the sun, try wearing a wide-brimmed hat when you are spending extended time outside.

Wear A Swimming Cap

Chlorine and saltwater are also not your hair colour’s friends and can cause it to fade. If you are going to swim, especially if you are a regular swimmer, you should get a swimming cap.

Blue Shampoo For Blondes

Blue shampoo is one of the most effective ways to maintain chemically treated blonde hair and keep those brassy tones away.

No More Hot Showers

A hot shower is okay, but a scalding hot shower will actually begin to fade your colour and damage your hair in other ways too.

Don’t Wash Your Hair As Often

It is unnecessary to wash your hair every day. When you get into a habit of not washing your hair so often, you’ll enjoy the results. If your hair gets a little greasy in between washes, use a dry shampoo.

Use Heat Protectant Spray

Use heat protectant spray on your hair whenever you use a blow dryer or straightener!

Trim Often

Split ends are less likely to hold colour than healthy hair, so keep up with your trims if you want your colour to look great!
