Vibrant Locks: Maintaining Your Hair Color Between Salon Visits




Keeping your salon-fresh hair color vibrant for longer doesn't have to be a mystery. With a few simple tweaks to your hair care routine, you can extend the life of your color and keep your hair looking its best. Here are some key tips:

  • Embrace Cool Water: Hot showers feel amazing, but they can open the hair cuticle, allowing color to escape. Opt for lukewarm water when washing your hair to help lock in color.

  • Sun Protection for Hair: UV rays can damage hair and fade color. Apply a leave-in conditioner with SPF or wear a hat when spending time outdoors.

  • Color-Depositing Products: Consider color-depositing shampoos and conditioners. These products can help maintain vibrancy and add a slight tint between salon visits. Choose a shade that complements your existing hair color.

By following these tips, you can extend the life of your hair color and keep your locks looking healthy and vibrant between salon visits. Remember, consulting with your stylist about the best products and routine for your specific hair type and color is always recommended.
