Hair Colour That Lasts Long

Exiting the salon with perfect hair colour can make you feel on the top of the world. But fast forward to a few weeks and a couple of shampoos later, you’re left with colour that’s a ghost of its former self. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are a few tricks that you can use to make your colour last longer:


1. Turn down the heat:
As good as piping-hot showers feel, you’ve probably heard that they’re a recipe for dry, rough hair. Super-hot water opens the hair cuticles and washes away the hair colour.


2. Embrace your hair:
In summers, it is important to protect your hair colour from UV rays, which will fade your shade. It is advisable to wear a hat or scarf when outdoors to keep your colour bright.

3. Skip a shampoo:
If there’s one thing just about every expert will agree on, it’s that washing your hair frequently does more harm than good. The shampoos meant to get the grime off your scalp cause the hair colour to fade faster. Alternatively, you can use colour-safe shampoos that prevent early fade.


4. Use more conditioner:
When you have coloured your hair, it’s important to use more conditioner. Hair experts often suggest to use more conditioner for your hair colour to last longer.


5. Wash your hair less:
After you have coloured your hair, try and shampoo your hair less often. The more the hair is exposed to water and shampoo, the more the hair colour will start to fade.

These are a few tricks that you can use to ensure your hair colour last longer! Now that you know about a few tips after you colour your hair, read about Why Should You Choose Ammonia Free Hair Colours.
