How to take care of Dyed Hair
Your color is an investment you want to last. Whether you’re a fan of the natural look or you love a bold new color trend, it's important to know exactly how to take care of dyed hair. So if you’re fresh from the salon and thrilled with your look, try these top tips for keeping those colored locks looking healthy and happy.
1. Go for a color-friendly shampoo
Like any chemical process, it's true that dying damages hair—which means it requires extra care! Use a gentle shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for color-treated hair to help replenish moisture and prevent dulling. TRESemmé Color Revitalize Shampoo and Conditioner system is perfect for helping to protect your tresses, keeping color vibrant and long-lasting.
2. Don’t over wash
Everyday washing can eventually cause color to fade, so try to cut down on daily shampoos to help keep your color looking fresh. Instead of washing your hair every day, opt for a dry shampoo in between washes—like TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo—to absorb grease keep hair looking fresh.
Dyed hair gets thirsty, so the key is to keep as much moisture in your locks as possible. Deep conditioning products, like masks, are great for helping hair fight back against the damage dying causes by keeping it nourished and adding moisture.
4: Protect from the heat
Hair dryers and flat irons might be must-have styling tools, but they can take their toll on color. Limit the damage they cause by using heat protectant products, like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray, to help guard against excessive heat and high temperatures. They'll help your colored hair stay moisturized and shiny, whatever your preferred heat styling tool.
5: Cool down
It might be tempting to opt for a hot shower (especially in fall and winter), but hot water helps to open up the hair cuticle, which can cause color to run. To avoid color fading, turn down the temperature and rinse your hair in lukewarm water.
6: Pool safety
Going swimming? Here's a great tip: rinse your hair in the shower or one of those rinse-off stations before jumping in the pool or ocean. Wet hair absorbs less chlorine and salt water than dry hair, both of which can cause damage to colored locks. Then rinse your tresses with clean water as soon as you out of the pool to wash away residue.
There's nothing sadder than watching colored hair fade away. Luckily, now you know how to take care of colored hair, you don't have to. Here's to locks that look as rich and vibrant as the day you came out of the salon!
