If you love to change your look, try new colors or simply want to hide gray hair and want to keep your hair color intact and shiny for longer to avoid going to the salon every month, follow these tips and take care of your colored hair as it deserves.

Hair dye is one of our most coveted beauty products, you’ll know it well if you like to change your look by varying the color of your hair, if you love to brighten your face with highlights or if you use it to hide the gray hair that is starting to appear in your mane. Despite all its benefits, this treatment also has its drawbacks, not only can it be aggressive to the hair fiber, but it is also sensitive and the color tends to fade and change easily. To avoid this, just follow these 5 tips that will help you pamper your hair color and ensure that your hair color stays intact for longer.

1. Protect your hair from the sun

The first rule to respect so that your hair does not lose its color, is to protect it from the sun’s aggressions. It doesn’t matter that summer is over, daily, solar radiation reaches your hair, modifying and wearing out its tone. The sun’s rays are very aggressive, not only on your skin, but also on your hair. They are capable of fading the color of the dye and will also maximize the “dry hair effect” that it causes.

So every time you go out in the sun, whether for a walk or a drink on a terrace, use a hair sunscreen to prevent radiation from fading the color of your hair dye. There are more and more products on the market specifically for this purpose, so it won’t be difficult to find one.

2. Don’t wash your hair every day.

Frequent washing is not good for the hair dye, as it makes the hair dull, dull and loses vitality and shine. Unless you have very oily hair, try to limit hair washing to a minimum, 2 times a week will be enough. To make your hair stay clean for a few more days you can use a dry shampoo that will absorb excess oil at the roots.

3. Don’t wash your hair with hot water

The ideal for the hair is to wash it with cold water, not only because it does not attack the dye, but also because it stimulates blood circulation and helps the hair to grow healthier and stronger. We know that this is a bit complicated when the cold weather comes, so we recommend doing it with lukewarm water. Heat is the number 1 enemy of hair color shine, it opens the hair cuticle and causes the color pigments to go down the drain. So avoid high water temperatures and go for a cooler shower.

4. Opt for natural, these home remedies will help you to maintain your hair color

To maintain the color of your hair dye for longer, there are a number of very effective natural remedies that you should start using at home now. The first of all is henna hair dye. This natural dye helps to revive the color pigments without damaging the hair. It also helps reduce dandruff and regulates sebum production. Henna is especially useful if your dye is copper or reddish, it will revive the color and leave you with an incredible shine.

Grapeseed oil is also particularly effective for reviving color, mix 3 or 4 tablespoons with rosemary essential oil and apply the mixture on your hair before washing it. Leave it on for a quarter of an hour before getting in the shower. You will notice how your hair shines again and the color looks more intense.

5. Use specific products to revive your color

Specific shampoos and masks for color-treated hair help to fix the color of the dye better and for longer, leaving it luminous and shiny. Choose a product that has a delicate formulation that does not contain aggressive substances such as sulfates that, in the long run, will damage the color.
