After undergoing a hair colouring treatment, proper aftercare is vital to maintain the brilliance of your colour and the health of your hair. Understanding the nuances of aftercare can significantly impact the longevity of your new hue.
Essential Steps Post Hair Colour
Use Colour-Safe Shampoo and Conditioner
Opt for products specifically formulated for coloured hair. These maintain vibrancy while protecting against fading. Look for sulphate-free options to prevent stripping away the colour.
Wash with Cool Water
Hot water can strip your hair of its natural oils and colour. Rinse with lukewarm or cool water to retain moisture and keep the cuticle sealed, locking in the colour.
Limit Washing Frequency
Minimise washing your hair in the initial days after colouring to preserve the vibrancy. Use dry shampoo between washes to maintain cleanliness without excessive washing.
Tips Based on Hair Colour
Different hair colours demand specific aftercare routines to maintain their brilliance:
- Blondes: Combat brassiness with purple toning shampoo.
- Brunettes: Use colour-enhancing products to prevent fading.
- Vibrant Reds: Protect from damaging exposure using protection sprays or serums.
