How Can I Preserve My Hair Colour

Jun 28, 2024Nicola Wood

Colour-treated hair requires special attention to maintain its vibrancy and health. Whether you’ve opted for a new shade or subtle highlights, preserving your colour and ensuring your hair stays healthy can be a challenge. Here are some essential tips and tricks for taking care of colour-treated hair.

Use Colour-Safe Products

The foundation of caring for colour-treated hair is using the right products:

  • Sulphate-Free Shampoos and Conditioners: Sulphates can strip hair of its colour and natural oils. Opt for sulphate-free formulas to maintain your colour.
  • Colour-Protecting Treatments: Look for products specifically designed to protect and enhance colour-treated hair. These often contain ingredients that lock in colour and add shine.

Wash Your Hair Less Frequently

Frequent washing can cause your colour to fade faster:

  • Extend Time Between Washes: Aim to wash your hair 2-3 times a week. This helps retain natural oils and keeps colour from washing out too quickly.
  • Dry Shampoo: Use dry shampoo to absorb excess oil and keep your hair looking fresh between washes.

 Protect Your Hair from Heat

Heat styling can damage colour-treated hair and cause it to fade:

  • Heat Protectant: Always apply a heat protectant spray before using any heat styling tools.
  • Limit Heat Styling: Try to reduce the use of blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners. Embrace your natural texture whenever possible. After washing use a XL Luxury Hair Wrap to reduce drying time minimising heat damage.

Deep Condition Regularly

Colour-treated hair tends to be drier and more prone to damage:

  • Weekly Deep Conditioning: Use a deep conditioning treatment or hair mask once a week to replenish moisture and repair damage.
  • Leave-In Conditioners: Incorporate leave-in conditioners into your routine for added hydration and protection throughout the day.

Protect Your Hair from the Sun

UV rays can fade your hair colour and cause dryness:

  • UV Protection Products: Use hair products that offer UV protection. Sprays and leave-in conditioners with SPF can shield your hair from the sun.
  • Hats and Scarves: Wear a hat or scarf when you’re out in the sun to provide a physical barrier against UV rays.

Avoid Chlorine and Saltwater

Chlorine and saltwater can strip your hair of its colour and moisture:

  • Pre-Swim Rinse: Rinse your hair with fresh water before swimming to reduce the amount of chlorine or salt it absorbs.
  • Post-Swim Rinse: Rinse your hair thoroughly after swimming to remove any residual chlorine or saltwater. Ensure to use a paddle brush that is gentle on the hair to prevent any further breakage. We recommend our Luxury Paddle Brush.

    Our founder Nicola Wood says "Taking care of colour-treated hair requires a bit of extra effort, but the payoff is well worth it. By using the right products, protecting your hair from heat and UV rays, and maintaining a healthy routine, you can keep your colour looking vibrant and your hair feeling healthy."
