A new hair colour always looks amazing, but some people struggle to keep their colour looking fresh between colouring. So here’s our guide to keeping your colour looking gorgeous for as long as possible.
1. TREAT YOUR COLOUR WELL
Coloured hair does need a little more care than normal hair. Change your shampoo and conditioner to a colour protect formula and add in a weekly treatment to nourish your hair as well.
2. DON’T WASH AS OFTEN
If you have a darker hair colour, every wash can slightly fade your hair colour. Along with a specially formulated shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair, dry shampoo can help to space out the time between washes and preserve your colour.
3. DROP THE HEAT
Really high heat can fade your colour right before your eyes. It’s still okay to heat style your hair, but just drop the temperature a little to make sure you keep your colour looking its best and always use a heat protectant.
4. SUNSCREEN FOR YOUR HAIR
UV rays don’t just damage our skin, they can also damage your hair leading to colour fade. If you know you’re going to be outside for a long time, pop on a hat and apply a product with UV protectants to keep your hair looking its best all summer long.
