Haircolor Will Fade Out!

There is nothing more heartbreaking than dropping a wad of cash on a fabulous hair color service and then watching helplessly as your glorious hue fades quickly away. Is there anything you can do to prevent this fated fade-out from happening?  Yes, there are several tricks and tips that will help extend the life of your color. 

Hair treatments such as perms, relaxers or straighteners may damage the hair hue.  In some cases the use of chemical texture treatments may cause color treated tresses to become brittle, spongy or break off. Perms may also affect hair color, and re-coloring the hair after a perm, if appropriate may be necessary.

Hair Color Glosses can be semi-permanent when applied with heat or temporary without heat.  They are considered a very healthy way to extend hair color, tone down intense colors or help to modify color on hair that is porous. Semi-permanent glazes that provide a slight change of color that lasts from two to six weeks. They give hair shine and body and are usually activated by heat. Many hair colorists may offer to apply a clear color gloss or foil over newly colored hair to extend the life of the treatment.  These glosses not only help to seal the newly colored hair’s cuticle, but also help stretch its life.

Up the amount of water or liquid you drink, right after your last color treatment.  This will help keep the roots moisturized and prevent strands from drying out.  A side advantage is that your skin will also benefit from the added hydration.

Have Hair Cut Right Before Not After Color Service. How many times did you get glorious highlights applied only to watch them be snipped off at your next trim?  With some careful planning you can have a color service or apply color at home right after a cut so your beautiful new hues do not land on the salon floor.

When using a blowdryer, flat iron, or curling iron always use a aerosal hair spray for protection from the heat of the styling tools. This can also be a added advantage by holding the curl or the set from these professional tools.

Where a hat when at the beach, and pin up the hair if you are going to go swimming in a pool or the ocean. A water purifier on the shower head is a must, this will clean out any irons, or chemicals placed in the water you use at home.

Swimming plus hair can equal a mess of frizz. Are you searching for a specific hairstyle that can actually work while you swim in a pool or the ocean? Most people don’t care what their hair looks like while swimming, but others want to match their hair with the bathing suit style or keep bangs away from the face. What can you do?

Before dunking your head into a pool of chlorine or salt water make sure the head and scalp is fully protected. You can place a light conditioner application onto the entire head. Make sure to comb each application throughly from beginning to bottom of hair. The conditioner will help your hair from absorbing the chlorine, while the conditioner will help seal the cuticle and be your own hair barrier. This can be applied to wet or dry hair. I highly recommend Kalea Rose Passion Conditioner.

There are so many different hairstyles to choose from. Think of a style that would be easy for you to do, and how your hair reacts to it. One of the best styles for swimming is braids, which can be done on any length hair. When you braid the hair tight, this method can help the water from seeping into the cuticle and scalp. After you get out of the water, remove the braids from the head, shake, and run your fingers through it. You should now have a sexy beach wave style. You can do one big braid, braid on each side of head, a head full of braids, two ponytails with braids, french braid, boho braids, or side braid.

Trying to keep bangs away from the face you can gel them back and pin them to the side, or wear a cute headband to match the bathing suit. If you decide with 2 braids or ponytails, why not get matching ribbon to go with your swimwear? Simply create a bow, weave it through the braids, or make a headband out of it. Place the ribbon on like a headband, then tie it around the bottom of the nape area. Create a cute bow.
