5 Colored Hair Tips for Long-Lasting Color & Healthy Hair

Maintaining vibrant, long-lasting color while keeping your hair healthy can be challenging. However, with the right techniques and products, you can ensure your colored hair stays beautiful and vibrant for longer. Here are five tips for achieving long-lasting color and healthy hair, featuring some of our best products.

1. Prepare Your Hair Before You Dye It

Caring for colored hair actually begins before dye even touches a single strand on your head. Hair dye can be damaging if you don’t take steps to protect your tresses before you color them. This deep conditioning preparation should begin at least two months before using hair dye to nourish and hydrate your healthy hair. Begin applying oils and hair masks to help with hydration. Get regular trims to remove any split or dry ends. Try to avoid heat styling tools or use a heat protectant with them. If you’re planning to bleach your hair, apply a hair mask like our Keratin Healing Oil Intensive Hair Masque the night before to prevent additional damage to your hair shaft.

2. Use Color-Safe Shampoo and Conditioner

One of the most crucial steps in maintaining your hair color is to use a shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for color-treated hair. Our Healing ColorCare Color-Preserving Shampoo and Healing ColorCare Color-Preserving Conditioner are designed to protect your hair color from fading. These products contain flower shield complex and UV protectors that help lock in color and prevent it from washing out, ensuring your hair stays vibrant and healthy.

3. Protect Your Hair From Heat

Heat styling can cause your color to fade faster and can damage your hair. Whenever you use heat styling tools, make sure to apply a heat protectant to shield your hair from high temperatures. Our Healing Strength Neem Plant Silk Serum is an excellent choice. It not only protects your hair from heat but also repairs and strengthens it, adding shine and smoothness without weighing it down.

4. Deep Condition Regularly

Color-treated hair needs extra moisture and nourishment to stay healthy. Incorporate a deep conditioning treatment into your routine to keep your hair hydrated and strong. Our Trauma Treatment Restorative Conditioner is perfect for this. This conditioner protects color while addressing hair damage at the root, with a carefully crafted mix of natural oils and extracts. The Flower Shield Complex provides color protection and longevity, while essential nutrients smooth and gently detangle hair, reducing breakage and delivering softness and shine to dry, overprocessed hair.

5. Protect Your Hair from UV Rays

Just like your skin, your hair can be damaged by the sun’s UV rays, causing your color to fade and your hair to become dry and brittle. Use products that provide UV protection to keep your hair color vibrant. Our Healing ColorCare Trauma Treatment is specifically formulated to protect your hair from UV damage while maintaining the intensity of your color. Simply apply a small amount to your hair before heading out into the sun to keep your color looking fresh and your hair healthy.

Maintaining long-lasting color and healthy hair is achievable with the right care and products. By following these tips and using our expertly formulated products, you can enjoy vibrant, beautiful hair that looks and feels amazing. Say goodbye to faded color and damaged hair, and hello to long-lasting vibrancy and health!
