Whether you have platinum blonde, brunette, black, red, or even blue hair, color treated hair needs a little extra attention if you’re wanting your color to last long. Nothing is worse than spending big bucks at your hair salon for the newest trending color and then having it fade after a week due to not taking care of your locks.

No matter if it is temporary or permanent, dyed hair can fade as a result of many factors such as bold colors, heat styling, frequent washing, sun exposure, etc. In fact, no method has been proven to stop the hair from fading forever, however, there are still some useful tips you can follow in order to reduce it.

 How To Prevent Your Color-Treated Hair From Fading

Chlorine is a chemical bleaching agent that cleans pools and will definitely strip color from your hair when enjoying a sunny pool day. Blonde hair is susceptible to turning a greenish tint, while darker shades may become dull, dry out, and lose its shine.So reduce your hair’s exposure to the sun and chlorine,which can bleach your hair, causing the color to fade faster. Wear a hat at the beach and a swimming cap when you’re in the pool.


Use protection when doing the heat styling.Heat damage will cause your hair to become dry, brittle, and break, which in turn will cause your color to look dull and faded.Heat will strip away color and hydration and lead to damaged hair. To help prevent these problems from happening while using hot tools, try using a heat protectant spray before blow drying or styling. Heat protectant sprays will help reduce moisture loss from inside the hair, smooth the outside of the hair, and protect your hair from humidity after heat styling which, in all, will help maintain your color.


On your off days of not washing your hair, try using color-safe dry shampoos. These will refresh your hair and make it look like you just got a blowout without even having to wash your hair! You can also try color-tinted dry shampoos to revamp your color without having to head to the salon.
