Be Careful How You Wash Your Hair

How you wash your hair plays a big part in how long your hair colour will last. First of all, you shouldn't wash your hair for at least 24 hours after your hair colouring appointment. This is because the hair colour needs to settle into your hair.

Ideally, you should wait 72 hours before washing your hair after a hair colouring appointment (but we understand this may feel like too long!). The reason for this is because it takes three days for the hair cuticle to reseal itself after the hair colouring process and once this is sealed it traps the colour inside the hair. If you wash your hair before then, you may be washing some of your hair colour away!

You should not over wash your hair either way, as the more you wash your hair the more your hair colour will fade. If you currently wash your hair every day, try washing it every other day!

When you wash your hair, be sure to only focus the shampoo on the roots of your hair as this is where the oil and dirt builds up. Washing the lengths of your hair with shampoo can often strip the colour from the hair.

When it comes to conditioning your hair, focus on the mid-lengths to ends of your hair as this is where the damage tends to be. Putting conditioner on your roots can lead to your hair looking greasy more often, which will result in you washing your hair more often which will lead to your hair colour fading faster!

Use The Right Products For Colour-Treated Hair

Speaking of shampoo and conditioner, it's important to use the right products for colour-treated hair! You should always check the ingredients for any harsh chemicals. Look for sulphate-free hair products. The best products for colour-treated hair are actually hair products designed for damaged hair. This is because these products work to repair and protect the hair against any damage caused from the hair colouring process. A vitamin C shampoo like the NOUNOU Shampoo is a great place to start.

It's important to condition your hair, as hair colouring can lead your hair to become brittle and dry which will in turn make your hair colour look dull. Hair masks, such as the MINU Hair Mask, are perfect for nourishing and moisturising colour-treated hair to give your hair an illuminating boost.

If you feel that your hair colour has faded and need a top-up, you can refresh your hair colour with a shampoo specifically for your hair colour. For example, remove brassy tones from blonde hair with a purple shampoo. Not sure what products you should be using for your hair colour? Just ask a member of our friendly Simone Thomas team for help and we can recommend the right hair products for you. Check out our online shop for the best hair products!

Protect Your Hair From Heat Damage

It's not only heated styling tools that can cause damage to your hair... The sun can also cause heat damage to hair! UV rays from the sun can break down chemical bonds in the hair which will make your hair dull, brittle and dry. Protect your hair from the sun by wearing a hat. You can even get SPF specifically for your hair!

Where possible, you should not use heated styling tools such as hair driers, straighteners and curling wands. However, we understand that sometimes you may want to! If you have to use heat styling tools on your hair, always make sure to use heat protection on your hair.
