HAIR STYLISTS’ RULES FOR WASHING DYED HAIR

If this is your first experience with colored hair, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is over cleaning your tresses. Being gentle is one the most important rules that our hair stylists keep in mind when washing dyed hair. Shampoo no more than every other day, and use a mild, sulfate-free shampoo designed for color-treated hair. Condition after shampooing, and add in a deep conditioning treatment, such as a mask, once a week. Rinse using cool or warm water. To tame an oily scalp, use dry shampoo or baby powder in between washes.

PROTECTING COLORED HAIR FROM THE ELEMENTS

Your daily environment is likely not friendly to your new ‘do. Heat is especially harsh on dyed locks. Protecting colored hair from the elements means taking precautions both inside and outside your home. Inside, you want to avoid hot heat from the blow dryer and flat iron. When you need to reach for a styling tool, first apply a heat-protecting spray, and then flip the tool setting to low heat. For a day in the sun, don a cute, floppy sun hat. Saltwater and chlorine are also not friendly to your hair. Rinse your hair with water before and after a swim. For added protection, apply a little coconut oil before you dive in.
