On the In_Between Days, Use a Color_Safe Dry Shampoo on Color_Treated Hair : To help keep color_treated hair looking fresh, flip your hair over and spray dry shampoo at the roots to soak up oil. After Coloring, Wait 2 Days Before You Shampoo : When you color your hair, wait at least 48 hours to shampoo, preferably longer. If you can go three or four days before shampooing, even better. This will give the color plenty of time to set. When You Don’t Shampoo, Keep Your Hair Dry in the Shower : During those off days, wear a shower cap to keep your color_treated hair from getting wet while showering as this can cause some color to fade. Or, pull your hair up into a loose bun or a ponytail to protect it from getting wet.
Beige Hair : There's little variation in this soft, light shade of blonde, which is what makes it so special. It has an even more dramatic effect if it closely resembles your skin tone, like you see here with Nicole Kidman. Softly Contrasting Hair : Selena Gomez's surprise transformation from brunette to blonde is sure to inspire others. What makes her switch different from other blonde makeovers? Soft brown roots and her still_dark brows. The intentional contrast is both pretty and convenient, as it will allow her hair to grow out with less maintenance. "Ask your colorist to put a darker semi_permanent color at the roots while leaving the face frame and the ends lighter, allowing for purposeful roots," recommends Clairol Color Director James Corbett.
