Top 10 Tips for Long-Lasting Hair Color
Changing up your hair color can really make or break a look, and we’re here for it! Unique hair colors are all the rage, but it can be tough to maintain it and keep your hair looking healthy. That’s why we’re teaming up with Zotos Professional to give some of our lucky Influensters the Biotera Color Protect VoxBox.
Inside the VoxBox will be the three-step Biotera Natural Origins Color Caring system consisting of three full sized products: the shampoo, conditioner, and milk treatment! Now your new hair can look great for much longer!
For those who aren’t receiving this VoxBox (learn more about how you can get one here), we also wanted to give you our top 10 tips on how to keep your hair color long-lasting, aside from using these 3 Biotera goodies!
#1: Avoid hot showers: Use warm showers instead since hot water not only dries out your hair, but decreases the length of your hair color life.
#2: Use sunflower oil in the summer: Being out in the sun and swimming in the pool (due to chlorine) can damage and change the color of your hair quickly. The sunflower oil will help protect it!
#3: Try and stay away from heat styling: Especially in the first week of your new hair color, keep your hair natural since heat speeds up color fading.
#4: If you’re going to use them anyway, use heat protectant products: If you insist on styling your hair, it needs a barrier from the heat!
#5: Wait to wash your hair after coloring: This one’s no secret. The longer the dye stays in your hair, the more likely it is to stick!
#6: Get a shower filter: This will help fewer chemicals go through your shower water to help preserve the color of your hair.
#7: Deep condition before you color: While dye may damage your hair, once it’s done, it’s best to skip the deep conditioner, as it fades darker colors like brown and red.
#8: Use sulfate and alcohol-free products: Same idea as using a shower filter—the less chemicals, the better!
#9: Shampoo the roots, not the ends: Concentrate your shampoo where it needs it, because shampooing your ends will definitely make it fade more quickly.
#10: Use Biotera: I know we said these are tips for people not in this VoxBox, but you can actually find the system at SallyBeauty.com, or Amazon, if you don’t have one near you!
