Maintaining hair colour between appointments can be a challenge, especially if you want to keep your hair looking vibrant and healthy. However, with a few simple tips and tricks, you can ensure your colour lasts longer and reduce the need for frequent salon visits.
Here’s how to maintain your hair colour between appointments:
Use colour-protecting products
Investing in colour-protecting hair products is crucial for maintaining your hair colour between appointments. These products are designed to help prevent your hair colour from fading or becoming dull. Look for shampoo, conditioner, and styling products that are sulphate-free, as sulphates can strip the colour from your hair.
Wash your hair less frequently.
Washing your hair too often can cause your hair colour to fade quickly. Try to limit your hair washing to 2-3 times a week, and use dry shampoo in between washes to keep your hair looking fresh. When you do wash your hair, use lukewarm water and avoid hot water, as hot water can open the hair cuticles, causing the colour to fade.
Avoid heat styling tools
Heat styling tools such as hair straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers can cause your hair colour to fade quickly. To maintain your hair colour between appointments, try to avoid using these tools as much as possible. Instead, opt for heat-free styling techniques such as air-drying your hair, using hair rollers, or braiding your hair.
Protect your hair from the sun
The sun's UV rays can cause your hair colour to fade quickly. To protect your hair from the sun, wear a hat when you're outside, or use a UV-protective [will need a replacement Product for ‘la Bio Soleil Creme’] treatment on your hair. If you're going to be spending time in the water, wear a swimming cap or use a leave-in conditioner to help protect your hair colour from chlorine and saltwater.
Use a colour-refreshing treatment
A colour-refreshing treatment is a great way to maintain your hair colour between appointments. Treatments like Wella’s colour fresh mask contain colour pigments that help to refresh your hair colour, leaving it looking vibrant and shiny. You can use a colour-refreshing treatment once a week or as needed, depending on how often you wash your hair.
Get regular trims
Getting regular trims is essential to maintaining your hair colour between appointments. Booking in a trim every 6-8 weeks helps to prevent split ends, which can make your hair look dull and lifeless. Regular trims also help to keep your hair healthy, which can make your hair colour look more vibrant.
Maintaining your hair colour between appointments is all about taking good care of your hair. By using colour-protecting products, washing your hair less frequently, avoiding heat styling tools, protecting your hair from the sun, using a colour-refreshing treatment, and getting regular trims, you can help your hair colour last longer and reduce the need for frequent salon visits.
