After you color your hair, there are a few step you have to follow in order to keep your hair looking healthy. Hair dyes penetrate the cuticle which is the hair’s protection barrier, in order to remove your natural color and set the new one. After all of this processing, your hair gets weak and if you dye it too often, it can result in breakage. Knowing how to keep your hair color looking healthy so you don’t have to color too often, is crucial!

5 Tricks and Tips To Keep Your Hair Color Looking Healthy

Weather you dye your hair at home or you go to a salon, the following tips are excellent when it comes to keep your hair  looking healthy and shiny.

Tip #1: Change your Shampoo and Conditioner

Just like you use skincare products for your specific skin type, when you color your hair you will have to get hair products for newly dyed locks.

Lots of cheap shampoos and conditioners contain detergents, salts and sulfates. These ingredients tent to strip color out which will help fade out your hair color even faster. Instead, look for products that are for dyed hair and alcohol and sulfate-free. These types of shampoos and conditioners will help your hair hold onto its color.

Tip #2. Wash Less

If you wash your hair daily, stop this. As you wash your hair, your color also washes out. Try to wash your hair 2-3 times a week. This will help you preserve natural oils that help nourish your hair and make and color last.

As an alternative, you can use dry shampoo during the week to keep your hair clean. Purchase a good dry shampoo according to your  color or make your own dry shampoo at home.

Tip #3. Rinse with Cold Water

Everyone loves a long hot shower, specially now during winter, but washing your hair with hot water is so bad for your newly colored hair. Hot water makes your dye hair fade out faster, stripping the color.

Tip #4. Stop Using Clarifying Shampoo

If you use clarifying shampoos, that’s another thing you need to stop. Clarifying shampoos contain a high level of detergent that strip your hair of its color. Avoid using this type of shampoo after you have dyed your hair.

Tip #5. Nourish your Hair with Natural Proteins

After coloring your hair, the proteins that help protect your hair, disappear. If your hair starts to snap off, gets brittle and dry, this means it’s lacking protein.

We are all about natural products here and when it comes to protein, eggs and mayonnaise are the ultimate ingredients. Mayonnaise smooths hair out, while eggs are full of protein that nourish your hair. These two ingredients together will help repair protein damage, leaving your hair healthy. Check out the DIY hair mask recipe below and give your hair the boost of protein it needs.
