Keep Your Hair Color Looking Fresh
When you step out of Untangled Salon, you want, and expect, your new hair color to remain gorgeous until your next visit. It can – but it takes some effort from you! The steps taken between salon visits are important in keeping your color vibrant and your hair looking healthy and shiny.
Here are some things you can do to help keep that gorgeous color protected and vibrant until your next salon visit.
Wait to shampoo. Before you leave, your stylist will give you a recommended time as to when you can next shampoo your hair. Listen to her! Sometimes it can be a full 72 hours, depending on the hair type and product used, but it matters! The outer layer of each strand is opened in the coloring process to absorb the color, and it needs time to fully close and seal in the color.
Dial back the frequency of shampooing. When it is time to start shampooing again, you may not be doing it as often as you did in the past. Washing your hair too often strips the hair of its natural oils. This also causes the color to fade prematurely. Washing 2-3 times a week is a good rule to go by. However, if you cringe at the thought, your stylist can recommend a good dry shampoo for the in between days to keep you feeling fresh.
Use professional products. Before you leave the salon, your stylist will give you some great recommendations on the best products to use on your hair that will be sulfate-free and are safe for color-treated hair. These things matter so using the right products can help keep your color protected and vibrant looking.
Keep it cool. Heat can damage your hair which also can make the color fade as well. Avoid styling tools if you can. If not, use a high-quality heat protectant cream or spray to use and try turning down the heat on the tools as much as you can tolerate.
When in the shower, rinse and shampoo your hair with warm water (not hot) and when conditioning, use cool water to seal in the moisture and protect your hair.
Indulge in deep conditioning treatments. There are many deep conditioning treatments that can give your color-treated hair extra protection from the elements. At Untangled Salon, we can show you options for deep conditioning treatments in the salon as well as products to use at home.
