If you’re finding your colour just doesn’t look as good only a week out of the salon and you don’t know why it might be time to take a second look at your hair care routine.
From colour-stripping ingredients in your products to poor habits with heat tools, there are some things which you could be doing which is unknowingly stripping the colour from your hair.
At Blown Lux, we’re helping you make every day a good hair day regardless of how long it was since your last colour. Read on to discover some simple ways you can extend the life of your hair colour.
You’ve probably seen shampoo bottles popping up with the “sulphate-free” label and with good reason.
Sulphates hide in shampoos as a cheap way for manufacturers to create that rich lather feel. Unfortunately, this ingredient also strips your hair of moisture leaving it dry, brittle and your colour noticeably faded.
By removing sulphates from your hair care routine, you can help your hair retain its natural moisture and hold onto that colour for longer.
Leave The Heat Alone
While you may want to reach for those heat styling tools for a flawless hairstyle, those same heat tools could be the reason that your hair colour is looking a bit dull.
Heat is one of the biggest causes of colour fading as when your hair heats, the hair cuticle opens and allows hair colour pigments to escape.
So, try and keep your use of heat styling tool to a minimum or use the lowest heat setting to extend the life of your colour.
Stay Out Of The Sun
Just as the sun can lighten fabric pigments, it can also fade your hair colour.
It’s especially important in the harsh Australian sun to stay out of direct sunlight however if it’s unavoidable at least try to stay in shaded areas or wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect your locks.
The chemicals in hair dye can strip your hair of its natural moisture and damage hair cuticles which leaves your hair more vulnerable to heat and allowing any hair product you add to penetrates deep down and cause more damage and colour dullness.
By improving your hairs moisture and strength with more hydrating products you can protect and smooth your hair cuticles to prevent damage and colour-fade.
To hydrate your hair, you’re going to need more than a standard daily conditioner. Instead, incorporate a deep conditioning treatment into your weekly haircare routing to help offset damage and lock in colour.
