Have you ever noticed how alive and rich your hair color looks right after it has been colored, only to glance into the mirror a week later and see your hair now looking faded and dull? If your want a higher performance from your haircolor there are four easy steps to follow…
1. The first step is to condition your hair the day before you color and then right after your have colored. You can use a good hair mask or rich conditioner the day before so that your hair has a good moisture shield to protect it against harsh chemicals and processing. There are many great choices on our site, but I love the Terax Crema for this step.
Healthy hair will always accept color better and hold onto it in longer then dry damaged hair. Dry hair will also make haircolor appear brassy and faded. Without the conditioning, the color will almost instantly begin to fade quickly.
2. The second step is to try not to overheat your hair constantly with a blow-dryer or any type of heated hair appliances. Abusing your flat iron not only can break and split ends when over used but the constant exposure to heat (both natural and artificial) will just speed up hair’s aging process and leave your hair looking tired and dull. When you do apply heat, use a thermal protector on your hair like Mastey Code Red LiquidPac leave-in Fortifier.
This will not only protect it from the heated irons but also brings me to step number three!
3. Use Sunscreen for your hair! Mastey Code Red Shields your hair from damaging effects of styling tools and UV rays at the same time! You get a one two punch in this product that will save your color in two ways.
4. The very last step is cover your hair with a hat! That’s right, you heard it here first! Wear a hat and the sun won’t have a chance to turn your color into a brassy mess, and your face will be protected as well.
With these simple steps your hair color will look beautiful, longer!
