1. Avoid washing your hair in hot water
Permanent hair color will fade quickly if you wash your hair using hot water. While shampooing and conditioning colored hair, use lukewarm water. Rinse your hair strands with cold water post that in order to ensure your hair is well hydrated.
2. Do not wash your hair right after coloring
We’d advise you to not wash your hair right after getting a global hair color or an expensive coloring appointment. While coloring your hair, the hair cuticles are opened so that the color gets to seep in. If you wash your hair soon after coloring, the permanent hair color will bleed away from the open cuticles. Give sufficient time for your hair cuticles to close, so that the color gets settled well and doesn’t fade away.
3. Use a sulphate-free shampoo
Shampoo with sulphates will strip natural moisture from your hair, allowing the water to seep in easily leading to the loss of your best hair color. Always use a sulphate-free shampoo which is meant for colored hair.
