Once you decide to give demi-permanent hair dye a whirl, it’s essential to learn how to take care of your new gorgeous hue. Follow the four tips below to help you care for your newly transformed strands the right way.
TIP #1: Reach for a colour-treated hair care system
First things first, you’ll need to swap out your current shampoo and conditioner for products that are specifically formulated to care for colour-treated hair. Our favourites? The Elvive Colour Protect Shampoo and the Elvive Colour Protect Conditioner . Your new colour-treated hair care routine doesn’t stop at shampoo and conditioner. Once or twice a week, treat your hair to some extra TLC and use a nourishing hair mask. Opt for the Elvive Extraordinary Oil Hair Mask to infuse some extra nutrients and ensure your healthiest looking hair yet.
TIP #2: Rinse with lukewarm water
While there is nothing like a hot, steamy shower, you may want to scale it back if you colour your hair with a demi-permanent hair dye. Super-hot H2O can more easily strip hair of its demi-permanent colour and natural oils, which can leave you with a dry and duller mane. Simply turn down the dial slightly in the shower to keep your strands and your hair colour in prime condition.
TIP #3: Say no to heat stylers
By now you likely know that consistently using heat tools can wreak havoc on your hair, causing breakage, split ends, or leave you with a rough, dry texture. Instead of reaching for the hair dryer or flat iron every single day switch things up with heat-free styling methods. Introducing heat-free styling techniques is an easy way to give your hair a break from the heat, without sacrificing on a stylish hair-do.
TIP #4: Protect those locks!
We totally get it! Sometimes the perfect hairstyle calls for you to use heat styling tools, you’re only human after all. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t incorporate steps into your routine to protect your strands from the damage heat may cause. We love the Elvive Extraordinary Oil Treatment or the Elnett Satin Heat Protect Styling Spray for a two-in-one that will nourish and heat protect your hair, while helping you to achieve your favourite look.
