With proper care and a little maintenance, you can keep your color fade free longer. Seventy percent of women in the U.S. color their hair! There are a lot of ways to keep color fresh. Believe it or not, none of them requires a lot of money.
- Shampoo less. Most naturals can get by with every two weeks. Maybe even less if they cowash,which does not strip the hair. Use cooler temperature water also. The color won’t bleed so bad. Deep condition more. The chemicals in dyes leave hair porous and have a drying effect, so to keep it looking soft and healthy,slather on a deep conditioner.
- Use a shampoo and a conditioner with color-protecting ingredients tailored to your shade.
- Wait at least 24 hours before shampooing as this allows the dye to settle into the hair.
- Use less direct heat on your,like flat irons and curling irons. Do more sets.
