Getting your hair dyed completely or even highlighted gives you an exciting new look. If the hair color really suits you, you’d want it to last for a long time in its true vibrancy before you book another appointment at an Albany hair salon like Purity Hair Design. Because let’s admit it – they aren’t exactly cheap.
If you want to make your hair color last for a long time, here’s what you can do to ensure that:
Don’t Shampoo Every Day
Using shampoos, even the color-safe ones, are chemicals that will eventually strip your hair of all the color and restore it in its original state. If you really want to prolong the life of your hair color, just stop shampooing every single day. Shampoos take away the natural oils from your hair which are the same oils that have taken up the hair dye.
Steer Clear of the Heat
Hot tools like flat/curling irons and blow dryers can damage normal non-colored hair as well but they do a lot more damage to colored ones. Using heat can make your hair color look dull and reduce its vibrancy. If you use hot tools a lot, you could potentially be shortening the life of your hair.
Keep it Hydrated
If you really want your hair color to stay vibrant, you need to keep it hydrated. There are many hair products that can make your hair shine by hydrating them including deep conditioning products that you can use once a week to moisturize and nourish your hair. Drinking lots of water can also naturally keep your entire body, including your hair, hydrated.
Use Color-Friendly Products
If you are going to use products in your hair, make sure you get premium quality ones like those offered by Aveda and products that are color-friendly. Pigmented products are an option worth considering. Just match the color of your hair with your product and use it once a week or once every two weeks to freshen your color up.
