Maintaining Your Hair Color Pop
If you’ve spend the time, money and energy on acquiring a color pop hair color we know that you don’t want to be dealing with it fading quickly. The trouble is with many color pop options, they tend to fade rather quickly but since they’re so on trend right now we thought it was the perfect opportunity for us to share tips on maintaining your hair color pop. Because believe it or not, there are a few key tips to consider if you’re serious about maintaining the color and keeping it from fading for as long as possible.
Keep Your Hair Healthy
Here’s the deal, if your hair isn’t healthy it’s more likely to end up having a lot of breakage and damage to it which can cause the color to fade quickly and just not look right. It’s important that, especially after you’ve put your hair through a true pop in color change, you keep up with keeping your hair very healthy. This means using quality hair care products that are designed to work with your hair’s type and are appropriate for your hair color. Make sure you use products that are very moisturizing so that your hair doesn’t deal with any dryness.
Avoid the Heat
Look we get it, when it’s winter time we want nothing more than to jump into a hot shower – we’re right there with you on that. And let’s be honest, we all want our hair to look great daily so the thought of not using heated hair styling tools daily can seem like it’s completely unnecessary. But the truth is, the heat can cause your color to fade very quickly. If you really want to maintain your hair color pop you’re going to need to take it easy on the heat. This means avoiding very hot water when you shower, and minimizing the amount you’re using heated hair styling tools as much as you can. In fact, some experts suggest rinsing color pop hair with cool water as it’s said to lock the hair cuticle and keep from the color fading too much too quickly.
Pay Attention to the Products You’re Using
When it comes to using hair care products, we’re obviously all about it. But when you have a bold hair color on your hair, it’s advised by many experts to actually avoid hair care products that are harsh and contain things like sulfates as they’re known to cause a lot of dryness in the hair. Check the products you’re using and make sure they’re free of sulfates and ingredients similar to really keep your hair color going strong.
Don’t Over Wash
This tip goes for everyone, but it’s especially crucial to live by this when you have a bold hair color you’re looking to maintain. Since washing your hair strips your hair of its natural oils, washing our hair too often can cause your hair color to fade and just not look right. Try cutting back on the amount you’re actually washing your hair for great results on maintaining the hair color.
