Getting your hair done at your local salon can be a great feeling. Of course, the colour doesn’t always last as long as you might hope and this can be disappointing. No one wants to spend a lot of money to then have to get their hair done again so soon. Your hairdresser might recommend some products to use – but do you actually ever get around to buying them?
To help you tackle this, we thought we’d put together some tips to help you make your hair colour last longer! Keep reading to hear what we have to say.
Avoid Hot Showers
While we all love having a hot shower, especially in the winter, too many of them can cause your hair colour to fade. This happens when the cuticles open with the hot temperature and your colour fades. You don’t need to avoid all hot showers but maybe turn the temperature down from time to time and this could help your hair colour last longer.
Let Your Hair Breathe
Another great way to make your hair colour last longer is to let your hair breathe. It can be tempting to use your favourite styling wand or your straighteners on your hair right away but this something you should avoid. The heat can lead to the colour fading and this is the last thing that you want. Go natural for a week and then you can get back to styling your hair the way you want.
When You Jet Off
We all love a holiday in the sun but did you know that this can also lead to your colour fading quicker? The sun and the chlorine in the pool will cause your hair to fade and this is less than ideal. The good news is that you can protect your hair, in this case, using an SPF designed for hair. Don’t forget to pack it! You can also try to wear a hat which can protect your hair from the sun when you are away.
