How to Make your Hair Colour Last Longer


Summer is the perfect time to make your hair colour last a week or two longer. We spend a lot of money to get beautiful colour only for it to fade as we are starting to get used to it. Here are some of my top tips to help you get the most out of your salon hair colour by making last a bit longer.

Heat and Hair Colour


Try to stay away from heated equipment or tools as heat from those curlers and straighteners can cause you hair colour to fade. Sometimes you might have have to use heat but be sure to avoid these tools for the first 7 to 10 days after your colour.


Hot showers can dry out your hair and shorten the life of your professional colour. In the summer months try washing your hair in cool water. Use spiral rods for cold curls or plait your hair and let it dry naturally to add waves.



Washing your Coloured Hair


Another great way to make your hair colour last longer is to wash your hair only once a week. If you get sweaty hair try using a dry shampoo in between washes.



Use a Thermal or Heat Protector


These will protect against the damage hot styling tools can cause. Protectors will help lessen colour fade as they help to keep your hair in good condition.



Get a Filter for your Shower


If you live in an area with hard water the chlorine can remove some of you hair’s natural oil. A shower filter can help to remove mineral elements and chlorine from hard water. Shower filters cost as little as £20 and buying one can stop you from rinsing your colour down the drain.



Get a Glossing in between Hair Colour Appointments


Like the top coat you put on your finger nail after your polish it to make it shine. A hair glossing adds a shiny coat and locks in your colour. Glossing also neutralises brassiness and seals the hair cuticle so it reflects light and your colour looks new. Glossing can be done once a month.



Prepare your Hair for Colour


Shampoo your hair a day or two days before you have your hair colour done - never right before. You want your hair to have a natural protective oil to act as a barrier against the chemicals in the hair colour.
