There is nothing better than leaving the salon after spending 2 hours getting your hair colored. Not only do you look great but you feel confident also!

With ample color-extending shampoos, conditioners, and glosses making your at-home or salon color last is easier than ever. But there is no need to stop at hair care products! Your blow dryer and hair ties can make a big difference in keeping your color. The problem is, how do you decide which is the best color-extender products? There are some simple steps you can take to keep your color longer.

  1. Always use color-formulated products. Normal shampoos and conditioners may have chemicals that will strip the color formula.
  2. Avoid over-washing! Only wash your hair when your hair is dirty. Excess was hinging can cause your hair to dry out and loose its color faster.
  3. Don't over think it. The average color treatment lasts 6-8 weeks before you start to see your original color. By using products like our list of color-treated essentials, your color will certainly keep its shine and longevity!
