Tips to make your color last longer

what unnatural hair color lasts the longest

No hair color will last if you do not take care of it. Have a complete plan for your hair care routine. Don’t have one? Trust us; we have just the right thing for you.

  1. Do not wash your hair immediately after coloring it. It takes time to lock the hair color in, so wait a few days and then wash it with a color protective shampoo. Use toning purple shampoo for cool-toned hair. Do not wash your hair more than two times a week, as this can fade your hair color as well as strip natural oil out of your hair.
  2. Use heat-protective sprays and masks for your hair, as heat damages the color. Avoid washing your hair with warm water and avoid heat styling.

Follow these universal hair care rules and make everyone’s jaw drop with your new hair.
