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.
Turn Down the Water Temperature When Shampooing Color_Treated Hair : When you shampoo, stick to lukewarm or cooler water temperatures. Super_hot water leeches dye out of hair faster and strips the color because it opens the surface of the hair strand, which causes the dye molecules to escape. Skip Shampoo and Go Straight to Conditioner From Time to Time Try Using Conditioner Only on Color_Treated Hair Sometimes ; If you can, consider using moisturizing conditioner only on your color_treated hair. Shampoo can take more color from your hair more than conditioner.
