If you’re thinking of dyeing your hair this summer, you must know that you need to change your routine in order to help maintain your fresh hair colour.
Switch to habits such as using a system of colour-safe shampoo and conditioner to maintain hair colour in the summer.
While showering, make sure you keep the temperature low in the summer because a hot shower wreaks havoc on colour-treated hair, leaving your hair feeling dry and your hair colour looking duller.
Some water contains harsh minerals, which can fade the hair colour. So, filtering is the best bet for a fade-free rinse.
This is the top thing that needs to be done by anyone who is worried about hair colour care. Look for colour-safe shampoo and conditioner; also, look for some sulphate-free shampoos.
After massaging your scalp gently with the colour-safe/sulphate-free shampoo, rinse it thoroughly and follow up by applying the conditioner. Wait for 2-3 minutes before you rinse out the conditioner with lukewarm water.
One must add a hair mask to their weekly routine. If the hair is left dry, it will lose its shine. Hair masks help to hydrate and revitalise coloured hair.
Are you a person who loves to use blow dryer, flat iron, and curling wand often? Remember, repeated exposure to heat makes your strands less radiant and dull.
There are many shaping products, and leave-in sprays available which accentuate your natural hair texture if you have waves or curls.
You can use heat protectant before blow-drying, straightening, or curling your hair to maintain your gorgeous hair colour this summer.
You never forget to apply sunscreen to your skin while stepping out on a hot day, right? Then your hair should also be protected from UV rays by using hair sprays that contain UV filters for colour-treated hair.
Use shine-enhancing hair sprays to add a touch of shine to your colour-treated hair that is looking dull and faded in the summer.
Wait for 3 days before you wash your freshly coloured hair because the colour will easily get washed off.
Though you use colour-protecting shampoo, wash your colour-treated hair less frequently so that the dye doesn’t leach out.
