How to Prolong the Life of Your Hair Color

Make Hair Color Last
Visits to the hair colorist can get really pricey, so most of us want to know how to best maximize the life of our hair color. First things first: to prolong your hair color, don’t over-wash your hair. Excessive shampooing is not only drying, it strips the hair of its natural oils and semi-permanent color. Furthermore, you should always rinse your hair in cold water, which seals the hair cuticle. It’s been said that a faux shade of red is the most difficult to maintain, requiring the most maintenance. Naturally, you want to stay out of the sun to keep any hair color from fading prematurely.

For maximum beauty, your hair color should be refreshed every 6 to 8 weeks or as needed. Some pros suggest never ever retouching up the roots yourself (but of course they would say that!). You be the judge...highlights show less regrowth than a full head of hair and the more faux hair color varies from its natural shade, the more noticeable your roots will be when they grow in. As a general rule, blonde hair color and blonde highlights show less white and grey hairs than any other color and will help make regrowth less noticeable. If you go this route but turn brassy, you can use a shampoo infused with purple or silver tint to tone it down.
