7 Things You Need to Use After Having Your Hair Colored

Don't let your gorgeous salon dye job go to waste.
ART Naomi Torrecampo

Having your hair colored can brighten your complexion and boost your confidence at once. But before you jump into the world of dye jobs, you need to know that colored hair is quite high-maintenance compared to just keeping your natural hair color. It's all about preserving the vivid dye your salon stylist has bestowed on your locks. Below, we list down the items you need to add to your colored hair care routine:

Breakage preventing brush and hair ties

Since lightened hair is weaker because of the chemical process it has gone through, use a hair brush and hair ties that won't tug and break the strands.

Dry shampoo

Frequently getting your hair wet and saturated in shampoo can cause your follicles to swell and fade the color prematurely. It is recommended to wash your hair every two to three days only, so applying dry shampoo to absorb oil, dirt, and odor is your salvation.

UV Spray

Contrary to popular belief that you only need the correct shampoo to avoid fading the color out, a UV spray is necessary to keep the sun's rays from affecting your hair color, too.

Special care shampoo and conditioner

Regular shampoos and conditioners that are not designed for color-treated hair may strip off your hair color prematurely. To preserve your dye job, wash and condition with products that are sulfate-free and contain ingredients that lock in the color's vividness.

Leave-in conditioners and serums

Since your dyed locks are more thirsty than ever, nourishing them with hydrating leave-in conditioners and serums after washing them is necessary.

Hair masks and treatments

Once a week, treat your colored tresses to a vitamin-rich treatment to keep every strand healthy.

Heat-free curlers

Heat-styling can alter your dye job and can accelerate the brittleness of chemically-treated strands, so resort to foam or velcro curlers to have damage-free twirls.
