Do Not Shampoo Right Away-
It takes minimum 24 hours for your hair colour to get settle into your hair. The dye keeps working for the next few hours even after your colorist has washed your hair. But I would suggest you not to shampoo your hair after you go home. Otherwise it will lead in fading of the hair colour. So, on the day of the hair colour, resist the temptation to use a shampoo and just use cold water to run through your hair if you still want to wash it.
Use the right Shampoo and Conditioner-
There are so many hair products in the market but I request you to use the ones specialized for coloured hair. Even better, asks your hair stylist to suggest the ones best suited for your hair type and should be sensitive to your scalp.
Say ‘NO’ to Hot water baths-
Hair is more prone to get damaged by hair color. Switch to lukewarm or cold-water baths which is great for your mane, doesn’t affect the colour and is refreshing too.
Oil Your Hair-
One of the desi ways to maintain your hair colour is ‘oiling’. Use lukewarm coconut oil to massage your hair once a week as it helps in improving the blood circulation from the scalp to your hair tips. It also keeps a check on your hair colour.
Do Not Use Heat Styling Products-
Almost every woman love straight hair but do you know the level of damage done by hair straighteners, curlers or dyers? Excessive use of these products is a big no for your hair colour.
Protection from Pollution-
Invest in a SPF proof hair spray to protect your hair from sun. You can also wear a hat/ scarf or tie your hair while travelling to avoid harsh winds that tangle them up.
Brush it up-
Look for one with a mix of boar bristles and nylon fibers, which will protect your hair and its color by distributing the scalp's natural oils over the entire shaft, explain Darling. A quality brush plays a key part in keeping hair healthy and your color looking its best.
Pump Up Your Conditioner-
Jojoba oil is closest to the oil the scalp naturally produces. Make a quick mask by adding a drop or two to your regular conditioner to ramp up hair's moisture level and color retention power.
So, no more resisting, go ahead and colour your manes with the ever-so-famous unicorn shades.
