Tips on maintaining your colour-treated hair

treating coloured hair

Looking to make your recently coloured hair last? Here are a few tips to help you maintain the vibrancy of your hair colour in between salon appointments.

 

  1. Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner

Shampoos and conditioners containing sulfates can cause the colour in your hair to fade prematurely. Look for sulfate-free brands like Pureology, specially designed for coloured-hair.

 

  1. Turn down the water temperature

As heat causes your hair cuticles to open and allow colour to be washed out, your shower water temperature can play a key factor in ruining your colour-treated hair. So avoid hot showers if you’re looking to make your colour last.

 

  1. Air dry not blow dry

For the same reason as above, leave the blow dryer and let your hair dry naturally to reduce moisture and colour loss.

 

  1. Wash your hair less

Try washing your hair every other day or 2-3 times a week to maintain its natural oils and colour.
