February 24 2022
Changing your hair color can have a dramatic impact on your look. However, whether you’re going for a new shade or just want to cover up a few gray hairs, keeping your color looking its best can sometimes be a chore. And since it’s worth going through a bit of trouble to have a brilliant and colorful head of hair, you’ll want to know how to keep hair color longer.
Luckily, Mounia has you covered!
In this article, we will discuss some tips and habits that you can easily incorporate into your regimen to make hair color last. We'll also talk about the Mounia Haircare System and how it can help you maintain your gorgeous new hair color.
Ways to Maintain your Color
Anything from getting the right hairstylist to using the right products can help you maintain your hair color. So, without further delay, let’s get to it.
Choose the Right Hairstylist
First things first, you need the right hairstylist. Not all of them know how to handle color-treated hair properly. To keep your hair looking its best, make sure you go to a stylist who has experience with coloring and knows how to preserve your shade. In addition, the DIY coloring kits you buy at the store can damage your hair, so it's best to leave color applications to the professionals.
Get Rid of Unnecessary Ingredients in your Products
Many hair products contain harsh chemicals that strip your color and damage your hair. If you want to keep hair fresh and luscious, you'll want to stay away from hair care products that contain sulfates, paraffin, phthalates, synthetic dyes and other harmful ingredients.
Why not try Mounia Shampoo & Hair Rinse for a change? Color-safe Rinse contains no harsh chemicals that can damage your tresses—while ingredients like organic aloe vera and rhassoul clay provide a gentle, nourishing shampoo and cleanse. Also, the rose and pomegranate oil technology in Rinse helps gently remove buildup without any harsh detergents.
Swimming in the pool is a summertime favorite, but it can also be a major culprit in fading hair color. Chlorine and other pool chemicals can strip your hair of its color, leaving it dull-looking. If you're going to swim, make sure to wet your hair first, so the chlorine doesn't have as much of an impact. You can also wear a swimming cap to help keep your hair color from fading.
Let Hair Air Dry
When you let your hair air dry, it will absorb the natural oils from your scalp. This action will help keep your color looking its best for longer. However, try not to let your hair air dry in the sun either since the heat can also fade your color. Similarly, using heated styling tools such as curling irons and flat irons can damage your hair and make it more prone to fading.
Keep Your Water Temperature Low
A hot shower feels pleasant and relaxing, especially after a long day. Unfortunately, hot water can strip your hair of its color and natural oils. So when you shampoo or condition your hair, be sure to use cool or lukewarm water instead of hot water.
Change Your Shampooing Technique
Other things you can do to maintain hair color longer include changing your technique to shampoo your tresses. To explain, most of us lather all of our hair strands, thinking we're just being thorough. But working it through the length of your hair can absolutely wreck your color in a New York Minute. So instead, apply shampoo to the roots and let it run through the rest of your tresses to clean them.
Use a Color Safe Hair Conditioning Mask
Coloring your hair can be tough on it and can leave it feeling dry and brittle. A hair mask is a great way to give your color-treated hair some extra TLC. To help restore moisture, use a hair mask once or twice a week. Mounia's Restorative Conditioner and Hair Mask is perfect for this! It is infused with organic cumin and flaxseed oil to weightlessly hydrate. Plus, it is packed with nutrients, including biotin, to strengthen and repair dry and color-treated hair.
Wear a Stylish Hat
A hat can help protect your hair from the sun and other environmental factors that can cause it to fade. Make sure the hat is made from a color-safe material, so it doesn't cause any additional damage. It doesn't hurt to keep it trendy either, and the right hat can add some style to your vibrantly colored hair.
