Make your hair color bright and long-lasting with these tips.
1. Choose Quality Hair Care Products
A girl who looks after herself would never apply the first cream that comes along to sensitive or problem skin. So should be with hair. If you have dyed it, rely on the shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for your hair color. Such products protect the color from fading and dullness.
2. Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Often
Do not be overzealous washing your hair. Too frequent use of shampoo will result in loss of brightness. If your have oily hair, try using a dry shampoo.
3. Use Hair Mask Regularly
The chemicals in the hair dye damage the hair and make it dry and brittle. To restore the hair, apply a deep moisturizing mask 1-2 times a weeks. For a more noticeable effect, put on a shower cap when you have applied the mask.
4. Wash Your Hair with a Better Water
The most common cause for dull hair color is the running water, which you wash your hair with. It contains chlorine, which discolors hair, so try using only purified or mineral water. Alternatively, a shower filter can be used to soften water and make it less aggressive for the hair and skin.
5. Protect Your Hair against Sunlight and UV
In the summer you protect your skin from UV but fail to protect your hair. The scorching sun has a negative impact on your hair making it dull and brittle. To keep your hair color bright, choose a shampoo and conditioner with protective SPF-filters.
