How To Stretch Your New Hue
Since we’re in the full swing of fall, you’ve probably headed into the salon (or you’re about to) to switch up your hair color for the season, it’s one of the most exciting things about the change in season – don’t you think? Anyways, we’re all about rotating and having fun with your hair color but we’re not always about needing to head into the salon all the time to keep your hair color looking fresh and gorgeous. We figured you weren’t about all that upkeep either, so we’re sharing how to stretch your new hue to help you elongate your time between color touch ups.
Be Aware of the Weather
One of the quickest ways to fade any hair color is by being in the sun too much. That’s right, the sun can actually fade your hair color rather quickly. So if you know you’re going to be outside for quite a bit of time you’ll want to consider covering your hair with a hat or bandana of sorts to block the sun from drying out and fading your fresh hair color. This does still apply during the fall and winter months, don’t forget the sun shines ALL year round!
Use the Right Products
Don’t underestimate the power of quality hair care products, especially when it comes to colored hair. Experts suggest that when using hair care products you opt for those that have been created to suit your hair’s type and potentially your hair color – they can really help to elongate the time between colorings. In addition, maintaining healthy hair through the use of quality hair care products is a great way to keep your hair in tip top shape. Often, your color fades and breaks off when our hair isn’t healthy and very dry – so combat those factors by keeping up with your hair care routine.
Avoid Too Much Heat
Another thing that can dry and fade your hair and hair color is the heat aside from just the sun. This goes for heated hair styling tools and hot water. If you truly want to stretch out your new hue, you’ll start easing back on how much heat you’re exposing your hair to on a daily basis. Instead of showering in hot water, tone it down a bit so it’s not quite so hot. And while we’re all about using those heated hair styling tools to create gorgeous hairstyles to really play up your new hue, avoid using them daily to give your hair a break in between styling. It will do wonders for your hair and really help you stretch out your time between touch ups.
Don’t Wash Daily
