After coloring your hair you need to follow some guidelines for getting the best results. Following tips will not only give better results, but will help in providing you healthy hair.

  • Filter the tap water before taking a shower or bath because they contain detrimental elements like rust. Rust can give a dull look to your new hair color. So, install a water filter to tap.
  • After coloring your hair it is quite vital to use shampoo that is specially made for color treated hair. This will keep your hair color soft and will give you a natural look. Avoid regular shampoos as they strip the color from your hair. They also reduce the natural moisture from your hair.
  • Deep condition your hair regularly, at least every fortnight. This helps in restoring the moisture and shine to your color treated hair. Use a color enhancing conditioner because as roots grow out, the color enhancing conditioner will blend your natural hair color with your color treated hair.
  • Use leave in conditioners for your color treated hair. Because they contain sunscreen, they protect your hair color from fading away.
  • Dry your hair after shampooing. Do not wrap your wet hair in a tight turban. Do not rub your hair for drying. Use a blow dryer to dry your head only, not your hair. Avoid over drying your hair because it reduces the natural moisture from the hair.
  • Do not use brush on wet hair. Use wide tooth combs to remove tangles. Start combing from the ends of the hair and move up to your scalp.
  • Before going for swimming wet your hair with bottled spring water. This helps to shield your color treated hair from the harsh chemicals used in swimming pool water.
