Use Sulfate-Free Shampoos

Try to avoid washing your hair every day, as frequent washing can lead to color fading. Instead, wash your hair every 2-3 days using lukewarm water to preserve the color and natural oils in your hair.

Hydrate Your Hair

Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling irons can damage colored hair and cause the color to fade faster. Minimize heat styling or use a heat protectant spray to shield your hair from heat damage.

Protect Your Hair from Heat

Treat your hair to deep conditioning treatments once a week to nourish and repair damaged hair strands. Look for products specifically designed for colored hair to maintain its health and vibrancy.

Deep Conditioning Treatments

Wear a swim cap when swimming in chlorinated pools and rinse your hair with fresh water after swimming in the ocean to minimize damage.

Avoid Chlorine and Saltwater

Wear a hat or use UV-protectant hair products to shield your hair from the sun's harmful rays.
