With limited access to salons, you maybe noticing colored hair starting to fade.The most common causes of color fading are frequent hair washing, constant exposure to uv rays/sun, and external aggressors like heat styling and pollution. Although we can't make cosmetic color last forever, luckily we know of a few tricks to keep it vibrant for longer. As your Mane Authority, we want to help you enjoy your shade in between your salon visits. Read on below to see the tips on how to maintain your hair color.
Use the right hair care products for your hair.
In prolonging your hair color’s vibrancy, it’s important to use shampoos and conditioners that are formulated for your color-treated hair. For any hair color, we recommend using sulfate-free shampoos, like AVEDA Color Conserve™ Shampoo, P1,800, it's sulfate-free, plus 100% vegan. Sulfates not only hastens the fading of the color, but it also strips away the natural oil of the hair causing your tresses to be dry and damaged.
Heat styling can fade your hair color quickly, especially if done regularly. Heat opens up the cuticle or outer layer of the hair and damages it, causing the color to fade. That’s why if you can’t avoid heat styling, we recommend using a heat protectant or lower the temperature. Try Davines Oi All-in-one Milk Spray, P1,495, that helps protect strands from heat.
