Keep Your Red (and other colors) From Fading

Sick of having that color fade after just a week? Do you look in the mirror every day and feel your heart sink as you notice your roots? Have no fear! It’s easy to have great hair color and keep it that way. One of the most common questions I get asked from my clients is how to keep their hair color fresh and long lasting.

Here are a few helpful hints!

  • Be sure your colorist is using a quality dye.  To see what we use you can read more HERE.
  • After having your hair dyed,  do not wash it for three whole days. This may seem hard, but you can get a shower-cap to wear while bathing. (Oh, the sacrifices we make for beauty…)
  • When you do wash your hair, use color-safe, preferably sulfate free shampoo and conditioner, and wash it in cold water. If you can’t bear to take a cold shower, simply rinse with cold water after you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair.  We carry all of the latest and greatest lines of hair care products to ensure long lasting color.
  • Stay away from the sun. It will lighten the hair up. If you must be in the sun a lot, use a UV protectant spray or mask on your hair. Some brands have a UV hair spray protector.
