After you spend a lot of time and/or money getting your hair done, the last thing you want

is for your hair color to fade quickly.  These tips can help your hair color last longer!

  • Wash your hair less frequently:
    Washing your hair less often will make your hair color last longer.
  • Use a color protecting shampoo or sulfate free shampoo:
    Sulfates will strip color from your hair.  Using a color protecting shampoo or sulfate free shampoo will protect color from fading.
  • When washing your hair, rinse with cold water:
    Rinsing with cold water will close the hair cuticle and keep the color sealed in for longer.
  • Limit heat usage:
    Heat will open your hair cuticles, causing color to escape faster.  Applying heat to hair can also alter the color. 
  • Avoid the pool:
    Chlorine lifts the hair cuticle, allowing chemicals to penetrate & alter hair color.
