How to Maintain Coloured Hair?

Maintaining the vibrancy and health of your coloured hair is straightforward when you stick to a few essential care tips. Here's a quick rundown to keep your colour as lively as ever:

  1. Heat protectors: Before you style your hair with heat, spritz on some heat protection spray. It acts as a shield against heat-induced damage, which is especially important if you have fine hair.
  2. UV protection spray: Protect your hair in the Summer with a UV protection spray. It's essential for keeping your colour vibrant, even under the sun's harsh rays.
  3. Hair toners: Notice some unwanted shades creeping in, like brassiness? Hair toners are here to rescue your colour, ensuring it stays true and fresh.
  4. Regular trims: Don't underestimate the power of trimming those split ends. Regular cuts keep your colour looking bright and prevent your hair from appearing frayed.
  5. Colour-care conditioners: Lock in moisture and colour with a good colour-care conditioner. It's key for enhancing shine and keeping your hair vibrant.
  6. Nourishing hair masks: Integrate hair masks into your routine to deeply condition and repair your hair. These masks are crucial for restoring hydration in winter, elasticity, and strength, especially for coloured and damaged hair. 

Thinking about mixing up your colour? Whether you're leaning towards semi-permanent dyes, temporary colour sprays, or adding depth with highlights or lowlights, a professional stylist can steer you towards the best choice for your hair.

Best Shampoo for Red Coloured Hair?

Caring for red-dyed hair, whether a full-dye job or just highlights, requires special attention to keep the colour vibrant. 

Firstly, after dyeing, wait at least two days before washing your hair to prevent immediate fading. Washing less frequently can also help preserve the colour; use dry shampoo to manage oiliness between washes.

Choose shampoos and conditioners specifically made for coloured hair, avoiding those with alcohol and sulfates. Some products can add colour with each wash, though this might alter your hair’s hue over time.

Red-dyed hair tends to dry out and become brittle, leading to a dull appearance. To counter this, invest in a quality hydrating conditioner and hair mask to replenish moisture and keep your locks looking bright and healthy.

Finally, protect your dyed red hair from chlorine and saltwater, which can bleach or dry out it, making it dull. Consider wearing a swimming cap or avoiding getting your hair wet when swimming to maintain your vibrant colour.
