Keep your cool

There’s no denying the luxuriant appeal of a hot shower, but steamy showers are bad news for colored hair! Hot water will dry your hair out regardless of whether or not it’s colored, but it also speeds up the fading process and can give your hair color a washed-out look. Try to wash and condition your hair in lukewarm or cool water. Rinsing your conditioner out with cold water is the best way to lock in color and shine.

Give your hair a break

Excessive washing is a sure route to faded hair, so try to cut down on the number of washes you do per week. Aim for no more than 3 washes, and use dry shampoo in between if needed due to exercise or other factors.

Trust the professionals

When it comes to hair color, your safest bet is definitely to go to a salon. This goes double if you are trying to achieve a much-lighter shade than your normal hair color. At Levell’s Salon in Marietta, our stylists are trained and experienced in order to provide you with high quality professional color services that will give you the look you want while also protecting the health of your hair. Give us a call today to make an appointment for double-process and semi-permanent hair color, highlights, and more!
