At Trixies Salon & Spa, we want to ensure your hair color stays fresh and vibrant between visits to the salon. That’s because we know how frustrating it can be when the color fades too quickly.
So, here are some of our favorite tips to help you extend the life of your hair color and ensure it lasts as long as possible.
Use Color-Safe Shampoos and Conditioners
One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your hair color is by using color-safe shampoos and conditioners. Regular shampoos can strip away the color molecules from your hair, causing it to fade faster. Opt for shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for color-treated hair. These products will help keep your hair hydrated and prevent color loss.
Limit Washing and Use Lukewarm Water
Frequent washing can cause your hair color to fade more quickly. Try to wash your hair less often and, when you do, use lukewarm water instead of hot water. Hot water strips away the natural oils from your hair, making it more prone to color fading.
Protect Your Hair from the Sun
Exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can damage your hair color, causing it to fade and become dull. Protect your hair by wearing a hat or using a hair protectant spray that contains UV filters. These products act as a shield against the sun's rays, preserving the integrity of your hair color.
Avoid Heat Styling Tools
Excessive heat from styling tools can cause your hair color to fade faster. Minimize the use of heat styling tools such as straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers. When using these tools, always apply a heat protectant spray to minimize damage. Embrace air-drying and try heat-free hairstyles to maintain your hair color for longer.
Use Color-Enhancing Products
To refresh your hair color between salon visits, consider using color-enhancing products. These products deposit a small amount of color pigment onto your hair, reviving its vibrancy. Color-enhancing shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks are available in various shades to suit different hair colors. Use them weekly or as needed to give your hair a quick color boost.
By following these tips, you'll be able to maintain your hair color longer, saving time and money on frequent salon visits. Remember, your hair color is an investment, and with proper care, it can stay vibrant and beautiful.
