How to Care for Your Professionally Colored Hair

Do you love your hair color when you leave your salon, only to find it faded a week or two later? When you have your hair professionally colored, it’s important to make some tweaks to your hair care regimen to ensure your color receives the ultimate protection. After you get a gorgeous new color, follow these tips to keep it in top shape until your next appointment:

Don’t Shampoo Immediately After Treatment

It is best not to lather your locks for 48 hours after your appointment. Washing your hair sooner can fade your color before it has a chance to set, which means you’ll need a touchup sooner. Even if you usually wash your hair every day, wait it out after a professional coloring appointment so your new look will last.

Choose the Right Products

Coloring your hair can dry it out, so it’s crucial that you choose hydrating products to keep your hair shiny and strong. Look for hair products that are specifically formulated for color-treated hair. They have the extra moisture that your hair needs, and are gentle enough to not fade your color. You should also use a conditioning masque once weekly for extra moisture.

Follow Your Stylist’s Advice

Talk to your stylist about the kind of hair care routine you can fit into your schedule and your budget. They can make recommendations to help you extend the life of your color. Be sure to talk to him or her about what kind of sun protection you need for your hair as well. The sun can fade your color, so you may need to use a hair product with SPF or consider a hat or scarf when you’re outside for extended periods of time.
