Keep Your Hair Color Vibrant This Summer
If you’re anything like us, you’ll agree that stepping out of the salon with a fresh new hair color is one of the best feelings ever! Am I right? You want it to stay that vibrant and gorgeous forever, but during the summer chlorine, salt water and the sun can dull that color right out of your locks. It doesn’t have to be that way, though! Check out our tips for keeping your color fresh all summer long.
Keep your hair out of the pool! Swimming is an absolute must in the summer, but a dip in the pool can cause you to lose your color vibrance. Chlorine is a bleach, which means it will strip the color from your hair. Blonde hair may turn green and other colors can become dull and lose highlights. Pull your hair up into a bun if you want to lounge in the pool, or if you’re planning on getting your hair wet, soak it in clear water first. Because hair is porous, a quick shower or rinse beforehand allows your hair to soak up clean water and less chlorine water. When your swim is over, wash your hair with professional shampoo that protects color right away to remove any residual pool chemicals.
Protect your hair from the sun! We get it - when it’s a beautiful day out, you want to spend your time outside. However, too much time in the sun can damage your hair and lead to discoloration and dryness. To save your tresses, wear a hat or go out in the mornings or evenings when the sun is less intense. UV rays are the strongest between 10 am and 4 pm, so be especially mindful of hair protection during these hours.
Use the proper shampoo and conditioner! We mentioned it a bit already, but it’s worth stating again. Using a shampoo and conditioner that is specifically formulated for color treated hair is a must. Every color has products specifically designed to keep it fresh. If you’re a redhead, use sulfate-free products. If you’re a blonde, purple shampoos and conditioners will remove green tinges. During your color appointment, ask your stylist for product recommendations that will extend the life of your color, especially during the summer.
