Preserving the Shine of Coloured Hair

Having a professional hairstylist colour your hair is a great way to inject life into an old hairstyle. However, many people may have trouble maintaining the vibrancy of the colour. If you are one of those people, try these three tips to help you better preserve the look of your coloured hair:

Pre-colour Care

To best preserve the lustre of coloured hair, you need to prepare well in advance. Avoid using chemicals on your hair at least a month before you have it coloured. Using the right conditioner,  as well as a hair mask, should also help your hair take in the dye better.

Choose Your Shampoo Wisely

When you have coloured hair, any old shampoo simply won’t do. Be sure that you use shampoo specifically for colour-treated hair (it should be mentioned on the label) as they have ingredients that help prevent the dye from fading.

Seek the Shade

The extra sun during spring is a welcome sight after the winter season. However, extra sunlight also means extra UV rays that degrade hair. Try to limit you hair’s exposure to the sun by staying in the shade or using an umbrella. It may seem like a small matter, but it does wonders in extending the lifespan of coloured hair.
