Anyone who has had their hair colored knows that it’s just about the most expensive “basic” beauty treatment you can get, especially since coloring hair to hide graying or white hair, to brighten appearance, and simply for the sake of change has become so common. The last thing you want to see is that newly minted color fading just weeks after you’ve shelled out for it.
If you’re dyeing your hair at home, you can make the color last longer by following these steps:
- Use a clarifying shampoo the day before you color to remove mineral build-up from water, which makes color fade faster.
- Wait 24 to 48 hours after you’ve colored your hair before shampooing so the color has time to be absorbed into the hair.
- Use a weekly hair mask that moisturizes your strands and helps liven up the color you’ve just added.
- Don’t style your hair is tight ponies or hair do’s way too frequently. We admit that they look damn nice but the friction leads to hair breakage. Leave your hair down once in a while and enjoy the fun flirtatious look.
- Vitamin E has the same effect as a massage on the scalp and hence promotes blood circulation and growth. Us e it individual or mixed with your coconut oil, it can only do good.
