The Hair Stylists at LVH have put their heads together again. This time we want share their best tips for maintaining vivid and strong coloured hair.
If you love to blow dry or straighten your 613 or coloured hair, make sure that you’re not using the highest temperature. It is vital to use to lowest heat possible to preserve your hair and make it last as long as possible.
Use Heat Protectant on Hair
When using heat its important to use a heat protectant on your hair, this will help to retain the colour in your hair.
Coloured and 613 hair can become quite dry, so it’s important to keep it moisturised, this can be done by applying small amounts of serum to your hair, which can also seal in the colour.
Wash with Cold Water
Make sure when washing your hair, that you use cold water. Using warm or hot water opens your cuticle and releases the colour out of your hair. However cold-water seals in moisture and helps retain colour.
Wash Less Often
Washing your hair regularly can cause the colour in your hair to become duller, therefore it’s important to wash your hair less regularly to prevent this from occurring.
Use Colour Friendly Products
When washing, avoid using hair products that contain sulphates. Sulphates are added to most shampoos to produce a thick, foamy lather, but they also make your hair dry and dull. Switch to a sulphate-free alternative to keep your coloured hair looking its best.
Coloured hair can get really dry, which can lead to split ends and shedding, a good leave-in conditioner will assist with moisturising the hair alongside protecting the hair from natural light too.
