Changing the colour of your hair has the potential to change the way you think and feel about yourself. Hair colouring at home has become extremely simple however, having your colour fade out has become a cause of concern for many women. In this blog post, we will be looking at a few easy tips that will help you take the fate of your hair into your own hands so your coloured hair can look radiant and lustrous at all times.
Shampooing before you colour:
Shampooing and drying your hair out properly is one of the key steps in making sure that your hair colour last longer. While shampooing, make sure that you use lukewarm or cold water rather than hot water as this will also ensure that your hair colour lasts longer. Another important thing to keep in mind is to purchase a brand of shampoo that will help your hair retain moisture and one that is specifically meant for coloured hair.
A lot of people who use hot appliances like straighteners, curlers and hot irons are oblivious to the fact that these appliances are capable of causing a lot of damage to colour treated hair. It is advisable to stay away or limit their use on your hair. The closer these appliances are held to your hair the more damaging they are known to be. It is also wise to keep in mind that hair that is more porous tends to loose colour faster and more easily than hair that is not as porous
Trimming your split ends is one of the best ways to make sure that your hair remains healthy and doesn’t look faded. Regular trimming will ensure that your hair remains in a good condition and grows well.
Stay Sun Safe:
Another way to make your hair colour last longer is to avoid direct sunlight. The UV rays of the sun are known to be harmful for the hair and can thus cause the colour to wear off sooner. You could use scarves, hats etc, these will not only add to your overall look but also protect your hair.
