Red Dye is Most Susceptible to Color Loss : Red hair colors tend to fade faster because they have the largest molecules. The molecule size makes it more difficult for red dyes to penetrate deeply into the hair, thus they dissipate more rapidly. So when going for a red hue, be sure to have your stylist use hair color that maximizes high_definition color results with minimum stress to the hair’s cuticle. Shampoo Your Color_Treated Hair Less Frequently : To prevent water from washing away your vibrant color, the answer is simple: Wash your hair less often. To retain those natural oils that help condition your color_treated hair, shampoo just two or three times per week, and never more than every other day. This will help your color last longer and help maintain health in your colored hair.
Choose a cruelty_free brand. Although you may not be able to color your hair with a natural or organic formula, you can make conscious choices when it comes to the treatment of animals and the use of animal_derived ingredients. Manic Panic, which recently celebrated 40 years of making wild hair colors used in both homes and salons, has been cruelty_free for so long that they've actually trademarked the motto, "Tested on celebrities, not animals." And in addition to being free of ammonia, peroxide and PPD, all of the formulas are vegan, prompting PETA2 to name their formulas Best Cruelty_Free Hair Product in several different years.
