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.
Gray_Gray Hair : If you're thinking about letting nature run its course, now's the time women are actually dyeing their hair gray. Like with platinum blonde hair, be sure to eliminate any brass or yellow tones by using a purple shampoo like Clairol Shimmer Lights a few times a week. Dark Chocolate Hair : Soon_to_be_royal Meghan Markle makes a case for deep chocolatey hair that never goes out of style. At first glance her strands seem to be all one shade, but look closer and you'll notice some caramel highlights emphasizing her waves.
