☀Wear a hat:Protecting your hair color from the elements helps prevent the formation of a free radical atoms or molecules that contribute to fading when they snatch electrons from pigment molecules.Wear a sun protecting hat when you are out -doors for a long time or look for leave -in-treatments with UV absorbers that filters some of the color -running rays like benzophenone-3 or 4,polyquaternium-59,cinbamidopropyltri onium chloride and butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane.
☀Avoid going red:When putting on red hair color, try and rethink,because red hair colors fade the fastest because crimson pigment molecules are larger than brown and blacks and most unstable.
☀Suds up less frequently:The more you wash your hair the faster your hair color will fade away.Shampooing causes the hair strands to swell and the color then washes out little by little.If you need to shampoo often,that deposite dye onto your hair,essentially re-coloring a little each time you wash.
☀Make use of color protecting shampoo and conditioner:Traditional products don't take away from the color,they just don't add anything says experts.Wash and condition your strands with products formulated to be protective,they work by sealing your cuticle,so your strands hold on to the dye inside.And unless it's the day before a color refresh die to use clarifying shampoo which can strip strands and speed up the color fade process.
☀Swim rules:Chlorine is a major culprit in fading hair dye,apply a little deep conditioner to your hair before you dive into water,endeavor to protect and moisturiz the hair,then add a swim cap over the conditioner for an extra -layer protection.
☀Always wash with Luke warm water:Steaming hot water definitely has an effect on strands.Wet hair has more stretch than dry hair and the "stretchness" of hair increases with the water temperature.This indicates the hair structure is more relaxed,which can allow more pigment to escape,So wash with lukewarm water or (gasp!) cool H2o .
