So you've determined that your hair is healthy enough for color, chosen the haircolor of your dreams, and gotten your color done professionally. How do you ensure that your color lasts? One word: product.
The most important products to use are a leave-in treatment to keep the color sealed in and a heat protector if you ever use hot tools at home. Some great leave-in treatments are L'Anza's Magic Bullet and L'Anza's Trauma Treatment.
And some great heat protectors are TIGI Catwalk Haute Iron Spray and L'Anza Healing Smooth Thermal Defense Spray.
It's all good to keep in mind that what shampoos you use and how often you wash your hair will effect how long the color stays vibrant. Shampoos to help keep the color can be sulfate free. A great one to start with is Framesi's Color Lover, which also comes as a Smooth Shine or Curl Define shampoo.
Though product is key, your daily routine should definitely not be neglected. You should be even more careful with updo styling as your hair may be more prone to breakage. Also, sleeping with a satin pillowcase will help to ensure your strands stay moisturized. Remember to always consult with a stylist if you have any questions or concerns!
