If you are a girl who dyes her hair you’ve probably made it your quest to get your color to last longer. Hair color is a little like your best friend, you’ve got to do a little give and take to get it to go the distance. Besides that, you’ve probably spent a pretty penny getting that color and the last thing you want it to do is fade.
4 Easy Ways to Get Your Hair Color to Last Longer:
1. Get it in great shape.
The week prior to coloring your hair, you need to get it into tip-top shape. Condition every day and then 3 days before your scheduled color, do a deep conditioning treatment. This insures that your hair has the extra moisture it needs to grab the color.
2. Stay out of the sun.
Ever notice how everyone’s hair is lighter in the summer? Yeah, the sun does that. And if it can do that to natural hair color, imagine what it can do to your hair that has been color treated. Just keep it covered as much as possible and away from direct sunlight.
3. Don’t wash it very often.
Washing your hair strips the color and the oils away off your hair so the longer you can go between washes, the better!
4. Use the right products.
Dry shampoo should be your best friend as it will help you go longer between washes. Also, use products for color-treated hair! They are specially designed to be gentle on your locks helping that color stay beautiful longer.
