How To Maintain My Colour Between Salon Visits!

One of the most common questions we get asked is “How can I maintain my colour between visits?” Well, we are here to unravel our secrets to maintaining your hair colour between salon visits. We get it, maintaining your colour for longer is a top priority.  With a few simple tips and tricks, you can keep it looking salon-fresh for longer! Let’s dive into our top tips:

Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner.

One of our top tips for prolonging your colour has a lot to do with your shampoo and conditioners! Using colour-safe products that are specifically formulated for your specific hair type is essential. It is also very important to select products that are labelled “sulphate-free” and “colour-safe” as this won’t strip away your hair colour as they are specifically designed to gently cleanse and nourish while preserving the colour.

Cool Water Rinses:

When washing your hair, opt for rinsing with cool or lukewarm water instead of hot water. Hot water can open up the hair cuticles, causing colour molecules to escape more quickly. Cooler water helps seal the cuticles, locking in the colour and maintaining its longevity.

Minimise Washes:

Frequent washing can lead to colour fading. Try to stretch out the time between washes by using dry shampoo or refreshing your hair with a spritz of water and a bit of conditioner on non-wash days.

UV Protection:

Just like your skin, your hair can be affected by UV rays. When spending time in the sun, protect your hair from fading by wearing a hat or using UV-protectant hair products. These products create a barrier between your hair and the sun, preventing colour degradation and maintaining its vibrancy.

With these tips in your arsenal, you’re now equipped to extend the life of your hair colour and keep it looking radiant between salon appointments. Remember to choose colour-safe products, protect your hair from UV rays, and minimise washes. By adopting these practices, you can enjoy vibrant, head-turning hair colour that lasts longer, allowing you to shine with confidence every day!
