How To Keep Your Coloured Hair Healthy

Here at Rumours Hair Salon in Sawtry, our hair stylists love creating fabulous looking coloured hair for our clients. Our clients come in with a dream of the colour hair they would like. Our talented hair colourists then get to work. The client leaves the salon looking and feeling amazing with their fabulous, coloured hair.

However, what happens when you leave the salon with your freshly coloured hair? Here at Rumours Hair Salon near Huntingdon we want our clients to be happy with their coloured hair for longer. This is why we have put together this blog. In this blog post you will see some top tips to help keep your coloured hair healthy. All it needs is an extra bit of TLC and your luscious locks will thank you for it.

  • Wash Your Hair Less

When you have your hair coloured you will need to wash it less. The best way to care for coloured hair is to wash it 2-3 times a week. If you do suffer with oily roots, you could use a dry shampoo to help you last that extra day. Remember – the more you wash your hair, the quicker it will fade. If you love your hair colour when you leave the salon, try to cut back on washing it.

  • The Right Shampoo

Coloured hair needs a different level of care to other hair types. We would recommend that you opt for a colour protective shampoo. There is a great range of shampoos and hair products in our salon that. Speak to our hairdressers to get their recommends to help keep your hair looking fabulous. Avoid using normal shampoo as this will often wash your fabulous new colour away.

  • Think Condition

When hair is coloured, it can become more fragile. It is common that over time coloured hair can look and feel dry. This is why you need to keep your hair hydrated. A conditioner will work as a protective barrier for your hair. It will add moisture to your hair and keep it more hydrated. The protective barrier will also help to prevent your colour from being washed out. Again – if you need help choosing the right coloured hair conditioner, speak to our team.

  • Minimise The Heat

We can all fall into the trap of using more heat on our hair than we need to. However, this is even more serious when it comes to coloured hair. The use of excessive heat on your hair will cause the colour to fade and leave the hair looking dry. Wherever possible, leave your hair to dry naturally with no heat at all. However, where this is not possible use a lower heat and keep heat styling to a minimum. We also have a range of heat protection products in the salon that will help protect your hair and its stunning new colour.
