Now that you have your hair colour perfectly done comes the home care! In order to make that hair colour last longer and keep your hair healthy looking here are a few tips from our stylists.
1. After colouring your hair wait 72 hours before shampooing your hair. It takes up to three days for the cuticle layer to fully close, which traps the color molecule, allowing for longer lasting hair color. 2. Use sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Sulfate free products are a lot more gentle on the hair, will not cause it to look and feel dry. They are also not likely to strip away the hair colour faster.
3. Use leave in treatments Using leave in treatment when styling your hair that will protect it from the heat and maintain the colour longer.
4. Avoid hot showers The temperature opens up your cuticle, releasing the colour and moisture. Along with that, hot showers also dry out the skin. using warm water is better for both your hair and skin. For best hair results rinse hair with very cold water to close up the hair cuticles completely shut.
5. Dont over wash your hair. Washing your hair less will maintain not only your hair colour but also natural oils and moisture. Try washing your every 2-3 days and use dry shampoo in between if needed.
