If you have experienced the blissful feeling of having your hair professionally colored, I am sure you have also gone through the frustration of wishing it stuck longer than it did. *Sigh* Most, if not all, hair color savvy people have gone through the same, and a good number of them have accepted that the quick fading of hair color is inevitable. But here today, we will debunk that thinking by offering some measures that you can take to keep your hair color from fading, together with some recommended products for the same purpose. Let us chicks at Chick Parlour look into answering: How to Keep Your Hair Color from Fading.
Pick up a new tub of shampoo!
Yes, there are specific shampoos that are tailored to protect hair color. If your stylist failed to mention this to you after you’ve gotten your hair color, then you should probably start looking for a new stylist. This is the oldest trick and the book, and actually the most important one. If you were using a clarifying shampoo before you got a hair color, I’m afraid you’d have to throw it away since those can easily strip your hair from the vibrant colors.
This color-preserving duo of shampoo and conditioner from Lanza provides ultimate protection with UVA/UVB/UVC protectors all in one! My hair just feels so soft and looks very shiny every time I wash my colored hair with this duo. I would even get compliments from time to time that I look like I just stepped out of the salon because the Lanza color-preserving duo does a very good job in keeping hair color from fading.

Aquage provides us with another duo that is scientifically formulated to save your hair color from fading. I also love this duo because its color protection is not surface-level. As a matter of fact, it even has ultra-light micro-emulsion that protects hair color as deep as to its molecules. Furthermore, it even nourishes hair to regain its natural shine and bounce that commonly get lost with the harsh elements associated with hair coloring materials.

Grab a deep conditioning mask
Apply a deep conditioning mask to your colored hair at least once a week and end up with silky colored hair. These conditioning masks also regains the moisture on the hair strands, which helps in keeping the color from fading, primarily because dryness on the hair causes the color to dry out more easily, some great beauty tips.
Moroccan oils are very effective in restoring the conditions of hair that may have been damaged by extreme treatments such as full permanent color. This intense hydrating mask provides the convenience of a creamy restorative treatment without the hassle of preparations since it does not require heating up and only takes 4-7 minutes to work. Use once a week and watch your colored hair bounce with more vibrancy.

Get a color protecting spray
You need this if you will sport your colored hair in direct sunlight, because the damaging effect of the sun’s rays can also bleach your hair, thus fading your hair color.
This protective spray from Kerastase introduces a wonder ingredient: macadamia oil. It protects colored hair from the sun’s damaging bleach, and it also restores the hair’s natural hydration without flattening the hair and making it look unnatural. For what is the use of colored and styled hair if you cannot even flaunt it under the sun, eh? Good thing you can always count on the Kerastase Soleil Huile Celeste Shimmering Protective Care’s UVA and UVB protection.
Try not to crave hot baths
As much as indulging yourself in a hot bath is actually bad for the skin, it also dries up your locks quite easily. And as we learned before, the dryness in the hair causes hair color to fade easily. If the weather is really bad, you can go for a lukewarm bath, but never splash your colored locks with hot water. All the above-mentioned tips and products would be in vain if you fail to take care of your hair in this most basic way.
