One easy and cost-efficient way to maintain your hair color this spring and summer is to follow up with a color protecting shampoo and conditioner. For anyone familiar with dyeing their hair, you’ll know that after a number of washes your hair color will begin to fade. Semi-permanent hair dyes have the tendency of fading faster than permanent hair color.
Every few months I get bored and dye my hair this awesome blue-black color, but the only problem is, black hair dye has the habit of running, making it fade much earlier despite it being a permanent hair dye. If you’re ever in this situation, this can easily be combated with color stay shampoos and conditioners. Remember, not every shampoo is perfect for every hair color, so if you have unique hair and an even more unique hair color, try out these shampoos geared to specific hair colors.
