As many of you already know, I’ve been dying my hair red for a couple of months now. As much as I’m in love with the red tones, it’s really hard to keep the color from fading. I want a vibrant red hair color without damaging my hair & having to dye it every month! So in this post I’m sharing with you some tips for a healthy colored hair.
1-Choosing the right hair-coloring product. Be careful what product you choose, some dyes will damage your hair; others won’t give you the wanted color, or give you a color that lasts for a glimpse! For my recent hair dye experience I used the “L’Oréal Professionnel – INOA Carmilane reds” hair dye. INOA colors are without ammoniac and gentler on your hair than other hair dyes and they stay longer.
2- Avoid washing your hair. Yes, for a prettier hair you should get a little bit dirty! Washing your hair everyday is the worst thing to do, especially if you have a delicate color, it makes your hair dry & the color will fade quickly. So try keeping your hair an extra day without washing it. If you have a greasy hair (like mine) I highly recommend the use of dry shampoo! I am using “Lush – No Drought Dry Shampoo” and it works like magic! It absorbs the oil from your hair & even gives it a little bit of volume for easy styling!
3- Use shampoos and conditioners specially formulated for color-treated hair. Go for the sulfate-free ones they are the best! They prolong your color radiance & protect your hair. I am currently using “L’oréal – Série Expert Vitamino Color Delicate Color Shampoo”. For budget-friendly shampoos that help you preserve your hair color try “Treseme – Color Revitalize “& “L’Oréal – Elvive Colour Protect”
4- Hydrate & nourish. Colored hair will need an extra care to eliminate the damages done. Use hair masques one per week to nourish your hair & prolong the color. I am using “L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Masque” one of the best masques out there just try it!
5- Protect. We all know how damaging is coloring & heat to your hair, to protect my hair and keep it radiant I use budget-friendly oil: “Ultra Doux – Huiles Merveilleuses”. A couple of drops on wet hair are enough to give your hair color an extra shine! I have also tried “L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil” ; it is pricier than other products but definitely worth it!
