How To Maintain Color Treated Hair

How To Maintain Color Treated Hair

Aside from hair growth, which is inevitable, maintaining the vibrancy of our hair color is important.  Here are a few suggestions on ways to protect your hair from damage and its color from fading.

1. DO NOT WASH YOUR HAIR FOR AT LEAST 72 HOURS. After the hair color process, color molecules should be absorbed by the cuticles. We may be itching to take a shower immediately, but honestly, it takes 3 days for the cuticle layer to close.

2. USE A SULFATE FREE SHAMPOO, OR CHECK THE INGREDIENTS OF THE SHAMPOO YOU WILL USE. Do not use products that has high levels of alcohol or peroxide.

3. USE A CONDITIONER. Apply conditioner that is formulated for color treated hair.This gives protection on your hair from getting dry and brittle.

4. DO NOT APPLY HEAT FREQUENTLY. Because styling needs heat, this can fry your hair if done often. Spray some heat protectant if needed.

5. OVERNIGHT TREATMENT. There are overnight repair serum and shine spray that you can leave on your hair overnight. Just wrap it with a towel cap to retain the moisture.

6. DO NOT SHAMPOO YOUR HAIR OFTEN. This is difficult to some, but there are research that water strips hair color easily. If you find that the roots are starting to get greasy, spray some dry shampoo to soak up the oil.

7. USE A LEAVE ON CONDITIONER. This helps specially when you are out in the sun. It will protect the strands of your hair from getting dry due to direct exposure in the sun.

8. MAKE HOT OIL TREATMENT A ROUTINE. Gone are the days that hot oil treatments are still on the list of services in the salon. This can be done at home and please find time! Look for hot oils that has natural ingredients such as shea butter, palm, olive oil and keratin.

9. USE HAIR PROTECTANT SPRAY. If styling needs to be done, apply first a heat protectant spray that will shield and protect the strands of the hair against the hot temperature.

10. WEAR A SWIMMING CAP! If you are going to dive in a pool that has chlorine in it, wash your hair first with running water before jumping in. Or better yet, wear a swim cap.
