Here is a comprehensive list of the things to keep in mind if you have color treated hair:
• Oils from the scalp and everyday dirt can build up, diminishing the natural shine and color, so if your hair is looking especially dull, it may be time to wash it.
• Water, however, can cause two types of problems for color treated hair. The more porous structure of color treated hair allows for water to wash the color molecules out of the hair’s cortex and lead to color fade. In addition, mineral deposits from tap water can collect on the altered surface of color treated hair, scattering light and sacrificing hair’s shine and vibrancy. Oribe Color Hair Solutions shampoos, conditioners, and treatments, help address both of these water-related issues.
• UV light is the enemy of color treated hair, as it can break down hair’s proteins and pigments, altering its shine, strength and color. Wear a hat to protect hair from sunlight if you’re going to be exposed to strong sunlight for an extended time.
• Whether you color at home or at a salon, be sure to help seal your color with a rich conditioner
