You’ve finally got the hair colour you’ve always wanted. It’s looking fresh, the tone is just perfect and you’re so happy.
There’s nothing more frustrating than feeling like it all fades away the next time you wash it!
Here are my top tips to stop your colour from fading:
Ready for a little chemistry lesson? When you colour your hair, the outer layer needs to be opened up before the colour can be deposited into the hair. It takes about three days for this outer layer to smooth back down.So tip number one - wait to shampoo! If you try not to wash your hair for at least three days after colouring, the colour (or toner) has more of a chance of being sealed into your hair.
If your hair is feeling dehydrated and rough, you’ll have a really hard time keeping your colour looking fresh. This is because hair dryness and damage reduce your hair's ability to hold on to colour.
Look to use a hair mask that’ll specifically target the issues you’re seeing - and use it frequently. Once or twice a week is ideal!
