6 hair-care tips to keep coloured hair in top condition

Whether you are a vibrant red-head or a bright blonde, all ladies with coloured hair have one goal – to keep the colour from fading for as long as possible.

If you want to keep your colour as deep and as dynamic for as long as you can between treatments, try using these tips!

1. Hit the hairdressers
Getting your colour done in a hairdressers is of course more expensive, but it will be worth it. The colour will last longer than at-home hair dyes.

2. Use a shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair
Yes, we know it may seem obvious, but many people with dyed hair don’t do this! We know shampoos and conditioners especially for coloured hair may be more expensive but you will save yourself money in the long run if your hair is in tip-top condition between treatments.

3. Don’t overwash
Shampooing and conditioning your hair with hot water every day will make your colour fade faster. Skip the water every second day and use a dry shampoo or some talc if your hair feels greasy.

4. Deep condition
For coloured hair, it’s worth investing in a deep conditioning at-home treatment you can use once a week or once every two weeks. It will keep the ends of your hair stay smooth and moisturised, helping to avoid split ends. Olive oil also works very well as a deep conditioning treatment.

5. Turn off the hair-dryer
The heat isn’t good for coloured hair so either turn down the heat or even better, let your hair dry naturally.

6. Stay out of the sun
Unless you’re a blonde and you want your hair to be lightened, it’s best to keep your hair in the shade when in sunny weather. For red-heads and brunettes, keep your hair tied in bandana or under a hat to keep your colour from fading.
