This month we’ve talked about the best ways to protect your hair from chlorine damage. But how are you supposed to protect your hair from fading? Well, the good news is that there are quite a few ways to keep your haircolor from fading. Below are some Boise hair salon tips to help you maintain a vibrant haircolor that looks great each and every day this summer!
Get a Professional Haircolor Not a Supermarket Solution
Opt for professional haircolor treatment instead of a DIY grocery store box dye. Ask your Boise hair salon stylist about which brand they would suggest and which one has the longest lasting palette of colors. Unlike the one size fits all box dye, your Boise hair salon stylist considers several factors and customizes a formula with different hues in order to achieve the best haircolor shade.
Use the Shampoo & Conditioner Your Boise Hair Salon Stylist Suggests
TRUST your stylist on this one. What you use on your hair will make a huge difference when it comes to the longevity of the haircolor. It’s important to invest in salon-grade products specially formulated for colored hair. Using the products they suggest will help to protect the color and add shine, volume and luster.
Protect Your Hair
During the summer, haircolor tends to fade faster than in any other season. It is essential to protect it from the sun while poolside or at the beach. Ask your Boise hair salon stylist about a high SPF conditioner to help protect your strands against those dangerous, harmful UV rays.. UV light damages color treated hair by causing the dye molecules to oxidize and fade or turn brassy.
Additionally, hats and scarves can help keep your hair protected and under wraps when you’re out and about.
Conditioner is Your Best Friend
Dry, damaged hair won’t be able to retain haircolor treatments properly. If you’ve ever tried going from bleached blonde to any other color you probably already know how hard it is. If your hair is fried, you may as well just watch the haircolor simple wash down the drain. Take care of your hair, and pamper it at least once a week with a deep conditioning treatment. When you rinse it out, you’ll be left with softer, shinier hair. Again, ask your Boise hair salon stylist about what deep conditioning treatment they would suggest.
Refresh with a Color-Glaze
Finally, one of the best ways to keep haircolor from fading is a clear glaze – a Boise hair salon technique that you can opt for right after your dye job that will help make your haircolor last longer. Not only can you have it done at the salon, you can also do it at home with the help of an easy-to-apply colored or clear glaze of choice!
