Tips On Maintaining Colour

Dyeing our hair can be an exhilarating journey. Whether you've opted for rich brunettes, vibrant reds, or unicorn pastels, maintaining that freshly-coloured vibrancy is crucial. But let’s face it, hair colour can be high maintenance, with the shimmer fading quicker than we’d like. So, how do you keep the colour locked in and looking salon-fresh for longer? Here are some tried-and-true tips to help you do just that.

1. Wait Before the First Wash

After getting your hair coloured, patience truly is a virtue. Waiting 48-72 hours before your first wash allows the dye to settle into your hair cuticles, which can prolong the vibrancy of your colour.

2. Use Colour-Safe Shampoos & Conditioners

It’s worth investing in hair products specifically designed for coloured hair, like the FUL Colour Care Shampoo and FUL Colour Care Conditioner. These products are formulated to be gentler and often free from sulfates, which can strip away the colour and moisture from your hair.

3. Cold Rinses Are Your Friend

While it might not be the most comfortable option, especially in winter, rinsing your hair with cold water helps to seal the hair cuticles. This not only retains moisture but also ensures that the colour molecules remain locked in.

4. Embrace Dry Shampoo

Every wash can slightly fade your hair colour. Enter dry shampoo, the hero product for those looking to space out their wash days. Not only does it keep your tresses looking fresh, but it also helps in retaining that radiant hue for longer.

5. Shield from the Sun

Just as UV rays can be harmful to our skin, they can also wreak havoc on our coloured hair, causing it to fade prematurely. When spending prolonged periods outdoors, consider wearing a hat or using hair products infused with UV protection.

6. Limit Heat Styling

Excessive heat styling can strip your hair of colour and moisture. If you must use heat tools, always apply a heat protectant beforehand and try to keep the temperature moderate.

7. Regular Deep Conditioning

Coloured hair tends to be more prone to dryness. A weekly deep-conditioning treatment or hair mask, like FUL's Intense Moisture Hair Mask, can help restore moisture and shine, making your colour appear more vibrant.

8. Avoid Chlorine

Swimming pools are delightful, but the chlorine can be a coloured hair's worst enemy. If you're diving in, consider wearing a swimming cap or ensure you rinse your hair immediately afterwards.

9. Refresh with a Gloss Treatment

A gloss treatment, which can be done at home or in a salon, adds a shiny top coat to your hair. It not only boosts the hair's shine but can also refresh the appearance of your colour.

10. Regular Trims

Split ends and damaged tips can make your hair colour look uneven and faded. Regular trims – even just snipping the tips – can help maintain the overall health and appearance of your coloured tresses.

In conclusion, while hair colour might change, the principles of maintenance largely remain the same. With a bit of care, attention, and the right products, you can ensure your chosen hue stays radiant and captivating long after that salon appointment. After all, your hair is a canvas – and with these tips, your masterpiece will remain vibrant for weeks on end!
