Today’s hair color trend is stepping up its game to a more vibrant and edgy look that most ladies including myself have been hooked up to.
From purple, blue, green, red and even gray aka “granny’s hair”! If you follow me on my social media accounts like Facebook and Instagram, you would know that I colored my hair two weeks ago. Thanks to GlamSquad Salon for doing such a great job. It is definitely the perfect look that I was aiming for. And since I really love my new hair color, I searched for ways to keep the hair color as vibrant as possible without damaging my crowning glory.
1. Use color-protecting shampoo and conditioner.
Our color-treated hair needs a little extra TLC so make sure to use the right hair products. Like the L’Oreal Vitamino Color Shampoo which specifically created to keep the color intact and make it last longer. Dyed hair also tends to be dry so don’t forget to nourish them with a moisture-rich conditioner.
2. Wash your hair with cold water.
Washing it with hot water can further damage your hair and take away the shine, leaving your hair dry.
3. Do not brush your hair whilst wet.
Brushing it whilst wet added the chances of stretching and breaking it.
4. Let your hair dry naturally as possible.
Same as washing your hair with hot water, blowdrying tends to further damage your hair. If you have to, use the lowest temperature and apply heat protectant serum to act as a barrier to keep in hydration and protect from humidity.
5. Hair Treatments.
Dyed hair is prone to breakage and split ends thus, make sure to find time to go to a salon for hair treatments to replenish your hair. You can also buy your own deep conditioning hair mask and do it from the comfort of your home for a cheaper cost.
6. Redye every three to four weeks.
Sooner than that and your hair will be prone to breaking, splitting and dry texture.
