When your color lasted as long as your tinder date

There are times when an awesome color washes out faster than some of your Tinder dates last but there are some simple ways to help it stay longer. ( the color that is )

Now a permanent color only is as good as the condition of your hair generally so if your hair is shot to pieces ( aka destroyed ) you need to firstly work on that before thinking of changing things up too much. We have all seen someone’s ends dramatically faded a few weeks after a color, it’s because the hair condition is not good enough to hold color. The cuticle May be destroyed so much no matter what you do it simply won’t hold.

Here are a few things you can do to help yourself ( just like you need to do after that hook up )

  • Use Sulfate free shampoo – Sulfate is the detergent that can strip color!
  • Regular trims – removes split and damaged ends preventing split ends to travel up the hair shaft
  • Don’t over heat your hair – dehydrates it and causes split ends and melting of the hair nothing on this planet can fix!
  • Avoid too much sun, it bleeches the hair.
  • Avoid using any kind of oil, yes yes we said don’t use oil. It increases the heat of your hair and will dehydrate ( even if it’s only small deposits left after shampooing it )it not add anything to it! It may look shinny from the coating but will be rough.
  • Get yourself a clear gloss color over your color, it seals it in and helps dramatically hold the color!

Now if it’s still fading come see us and let’s work out why!
