Many women color their hair, some more often than others, but do they know how to maintain it correctly? Keranique’s new shampoo & conditioner for color treated hair is perfect for maintaining that vibrant color. Here are some tips and tricks on maintaining color treated hair.
We all know washing your hair everyday can be damaging as it is, but it can be even more so if your hair is color treated. Avoid washing your hair for up to three days after giving it a color treatment to ensure that the color is setting properly. When you do wash your hair, be sure to use a color-safe shampoo. You may also want to wash your hair using cooler water. Check out Keranique’s Scalp Revitalizing Shampoo Color Boost.
Be sure to always condition your hair if you color it. Using a deep conditioner, or even a leave in conditioner, is great to lock in moisture and protect the color. With the use of a quality conditioner, you’ll start receiving compliments left and right about your shiny, soft looking hair. Check out Keranique’s Revitalizing Keratin Conditioner Color Boost.
3. Hot tools
Avoid or lessen the usage of heated tools like flat irons on color treated hair. Heating your hair too often can make your hair color dull and may also cause damaged or split ends. If you do use hot tools often, be sure to use the appropriate conditioners and get occasional trims. Luckily, Keranique does have hair products that can help protect your hair from heat damage, such as the Thickening & Texturizing Mousse.
4. Frequent color treatment
Though coloring your hair often can be damaging, many women see it as a necessity. Instead of coloring all your hair, speak with your hairstylist about focusing on the roots for a touch up. If you do choose to frequently color your hair, know that it may lead to hair becoming brittle and thinning over time.
Sometimes, hair color longevity comes down to the hair color type and the way your hair stylist applies it. Talk with your hairstylist about what they recommend for your hair treatment.
