Use The Right Hair Colour Products

Using the right products on your hair is key to achieving a healthy hair colour that lasts. You should only be shampooing your hair 2-3 times a week as over shampooing your hair will cause your hair colour to fade faster. To make sure your hair isn't dry or brittle, provide it with the moisture it needs by ensuring to condition your hair from mid-lengths to ends. Make time for hair masks as this is the best way to ensure your hair is moisturised in the way it needs.

At Wiles Studios, we have the best vegan-friendly hair masks for colour-treated hair! Replenish your hair with an Authentic Beauty Concept hair mask available on our online shop.

Protect Hair Colour From Heat Damage

Heat damage from heated styling tools is especially bad for colour-treated hair as it can cause it to break and become weak and brittle. In addition to this, using heated styling tools can cause your hair colour to fade quickly. Try to not use heated styling tools where possible such as letting your hair air dry rather than blow drying it.

The sun's harsh UV rays can also cause the same affects as heat damage. Protect your hair against UV rays with a UV filtered hair product like a UV filter finishing spray.

Look After Hair Colour While Swimming

We've all heard that horror story of someone's hair getting a green tinge after going swimming in a chlorine pool. Chlorine can actually change your hair colour as well as making your hair colour fade faster.

Look after your hair colour while swimming by coating it in conditioner before entering the pool. Make sure to tie your hair up in a bun on top of your hair to keep as much of your hair away from the chlorine water as possible.

Eat Right For Healthy Hair Colour

What you put into your body will be reflected on your body! Make sure to eat right with a diet consisting of healthy foods that are good for your hair and your hair will reflect this. Eating oily fish such as mackerel and salmon will nourish your hair to making it shiny and strong. Combat dry, brittle hair by adding walnuts to your diet.
