How Do I Keep my Hair Healthy After a Color?

Here are a few tips to keep your hair healthy and to keep that color from fading.

1. Ask your stylist to use the best conditioning hair color.

Ask your stylist to use a conditioning hair color. This will help keep your hair healthy while the color is in. Instead of spending extra money in the future use only high grade hair color. High grade hair color will keep your hair healthy and prevent future damage.

2. Red dye fades the fastest.

Red dyes fade the fastest. This is because of the molecule size of the color. This makes it more difficult for the color to penetrate the hair, making it fade a lot faster. If getting red make sure you shoot for the best quality red dye there is.

3. Shampoo less frequently.

If you don’t want your color to fade as fast, shampoo at least 2 to 3 times a week. Doing this will allow your hair to keep the natural oils it needs to hold the color. The more you wash your hair the more the natural oils come out meaning it the color will fade faster.

4. After color wait 2 days to shampoo.

Try to wait 2 days before shampooing your hair, if it is possible try to wait 3 to 4 days. This can and will allow for the color to set in your hair allowing it to stay in there longer.

5. Keep your hair dry when not shampooing.

When in the shower and not shampooing use a shower cap. Try to keep your hair dry. Keeping your hair dry when not shampooing will prevent it from fading.
