Washing your hair too usually
Pamella Gonzalez, colorist at Benjamin NYC, says extreme washing is the number-one reason behind untimely colour fade. Maddison Cave, colorist on the Rita Hazan Salon, notes it is because the chemical compounds in hair colour make our hair extra weak to water.
“Try washing your hair every other day or even every three days if you don’t get oily,” she says, additionally recommending utilizing dry shampoo in between washes to maintain it feeling clear. If you discover it’s essential to wash your hair incessantly, Gonzalez suggests utilizing a cowash shampoo with little to no detergents.
“It’s best to only use shampoo two to three times per week, using formulas that are sulfate-free,” provides Aidan Harty, senior colorist at Julien Farel Restore Salon and Spa at NYC’s (*16*) Hotel. “Try substituting a cream cleanser a couple times per week to gently cleanse the hair and scalp without disturbing the hair cuticle, which will help keep the color from fading.”
