Use Deep_Conditioning Treatments to Smooth and Add Luster to Color_Treated Hair : For extra shine, pamper your color_treated locks once a week with a deep_conditioning treatment. Apply the treatment to damp hair and comb it through from roots to tips. Pull your hair into a bun and pin it into place or wrap it up in a soft towel and leave the treatment in your hair for 30 minutes. When you rinse it out, you’ll be left with softer, shinier hair. Apply Leave_In Treatments to Protect Color_Treated Hair : Using a leave_in conditioning treatment can help detangle your hair and protect it from heat tools, the elements and other damaging forces. Look for leave_in conditioners that are specially formulated to protect color_treated hair. This is particularly important if you frequently use blow dryers, curling or straightening irons or if you spend a lot of time near a heater or in the sun.
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.
