Like cutting bangs, dying your hair is a real time commitment. I personally think that people color their hair because it represents their personality. Also, some people get bored and need a change, and hair color is the easiest thing for them to change. It’s a valid reason to make a change, and seems like a good idea to me.
It’s refreshing to change your hair once and a while. We should get this out of the way first — you can’t stop artificial hair color from fading. Even if you use a professional, permanent hair dye (or are currently sporting natural hair), your color will fade and become less and less vivacious the longer it lives on your scalp.
Below are some tips to prevent your colored hair from quickly fading:
❖ Take lukewarm showers whenever possible.
❖ Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.
❖ Wash your hair less often.
❖ Try a cuticle-sealing vinegar rinse.
❖ Stay out of the sun.
❖ Use styling products developed specifically for color-treated hair.
❖ On off days, use dry shampoo.
