Hair Care Tips for Longer Lasting Colour

Want longer lasting colour?

While eventual fading is inevitable, there are several things you can do, and abstain from doing, to make your favourite new colour last longer.

We’ve put together a list of 5 simple hair care tips to help you out.

Don’t wash your hair 24 hours before colouring it. This protects your scalp from the chemicals contained in hair colour. Your natural oils will act as a buffer between your skin and the product.

Always use a conditioner after the first application – After washing out the hair colour mixture, always use a conditioner to help smooth down those cuticles

Use shampoos and conditioners for colour-treated hair. These are specially formulated to help protect your hair against colour fade ensuring your colour lasts longer.

Deep condition/treat your hair once a week. Colouring your hair can dry it out and so deep conditioning/treatment is necessary to keep hair feeling soft, healthy and moisturised.

Avoid applying heat to your hair. Avoid excessive heat exposure like blow-drying or using a hot iron too often.
