we all love the look in our hair when we come from a salon after freshly colouring our beautiful tresses. Let us have a look into some steps which can help keep our hair colour looking fresh.
We need to shampoo our hair at lesser intervals
We need to wait for a long time after colouring our hair to let the hair colour settle down in because when we wash out hair with hot water the colour molecules from the hair escape easily causing the hair colour to fade soon.
We must choose the best shampoo
We must choose the best shampoo for our hair and refrain from using harsh shampoos which can remove the hair colour instantly. We must read the labels well and choose gentle, sulphate free and colour safe shampoos. If we can’t do without shampooing, dry shampoo would be a very good alternative to retain hair colour.
We Must Protect our Hair From Heat
Our hair has a protective cuticle layer which gets to protect the hair and once we colour our hair it tends to strip away during the process as a result of which our hair dries out as we use heating devices. Dry hair breaks apart and looks flat causing the hair colour to diminish.
We Must Ensure Protection From Sun
We must use sprays that provide UV protection and use hats when exposed in sunlight especially in beaches and on sunny days which will protect our hair and retain the colour in it.
We Must Avoid Swimming Pools
A swimming pool contains chemicals like chlorine which instigate the hair colour to vanish soon and affects our hair badly. We must wear a swimming cap and apply strengthening conditioner or olive oil before we go to the pool for protection.
