Skip the suds: It makes sense. Washing hair washes out color too. One way the Beauty Lab tests color fading is by repeating washing cycles, because just plain water (not to mention shampoo's surfactants) can leach dye molecules from strands, the Lab explains. "Wash colored hair every other day at most," Hill says. Switch products regularly : The Beauty Lab has found that using a color_depositing shampoo, conditioner or hair_gloss treatment once a week between dye jobs can revitalize hair color. Try Seal holders Pantene Pro_V Brunette and Highlighting Expressions Shampoo and Conditioners. Gloss it up: Like lip glosses for strands, hair glosses leave a hue_boosting hint of color and shine.
Condition Every Time You Shampoo Color_Treated Hair : When you do shampoo, be sure to condition your color_treated hair every time with a color_protecting conditioner. Conditioned hair will help your color look shinier and more even. Even if you have fine hair, condition the tips, which are the oldest hairs on your head and have the most damage. Start at your ears and work your way down to the ends. Product Usage Matters on Color_Treated Hair : What you put on your hair will make a difference in the longevity of the color and the long_term health of your hair. Dyed hair requires special attention, so invest in salon_grade products formulated for colored hair. Using color_protecting shampoos and conditioners on color_treated hair can help protect the color and add shine, volume and luster.
