You’re lying if you’re saying you haven’t thought about colouring your hair at least once in your life. But there are a million reasons to stop us from doing what we want. Right? When it comes to hair colouring, one of the million reasons to not go for it is the worry of maintenance that permanent hair colour demands. A lot of people who’ve coloured hair are unaware of a lot of things that need to be taken care of. These are not herculean tasks, but they’re important in order to maintain the health and shine of your permanent hair colour.
Before we go on and on about maintaining permanently coloured hair, we should remind you that temporary hair colours are way easier to handle.

A temporary hair colour forms a thin coating on the outermost layer of the hair strands. The present market of temporary hair colours offers varied categories of hair colours for men and hair colours for women.

1. Avoid washing your hair in hot water
Permanent hair colour will fade quickly if you wash your hair using hot water. While shampooing and conditioning coloured 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 colouring
We’d advise you to not wash your hair right after getting a global hair colour or an expensive colouring appointment. While colouring your hair, the hair cuticles are opened so that the colour gets to seep in. If you wash your hair soon after colouring, the permanent hair colour will bleed away from the open cuticles. Give sufficient time for your hair cuticles to close, so that the colour 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 colour. Always use a sulphate-free shampoo which is meant for coloured hair.
4. Mix hair dye in your go-to conditioner
One step you should never skip in your hair care routine after colouring is conditioning. Also, before you condition your hair to hydrate coloured strands thoroughly, mix a small amount of hair dye into it. This will help you maintain the pigment, shine and newness always. It’s like redyeing your hair each time you condition it.
5. Go for regular trims
Lifeless, dull and dry hair strands which have split ends are not capable of holding onto colours. Colour tends to fade on damaged hair faster than the rest of your hair. So, head to the parlour for regular trims once in a while to keep your hair fresh and full of life.
6. Try not to use a lot of heating products
Permanently coloured hair is prone to damage. It is better not to use heating products such as straightener, styler or curler! If you can’t stop yourself from using them once in a while, make sure you apply a heat protectant on your tresses to reduce the intensity of the damage caused.
Proper aftercare is a must to ensure your permanent hair colour stays beautiful as ever! Otherwise, your colour might fade faster and begin to appear brassy and lifeless. Who would want that? If you want no headache of maintenance and aftercare, you should go for temporary hair colours.
Go ahead, splurge on a hair colour you always knew you could carry!
