6 Ways to Keep Your Hair Colour Vibrant This Summer!

 

If you’re someone who has recently colour treated your hair or someone who struggles to preserve hair hue during summer months, then this article is for you!

Colour vibrancy is in high demand during the hot summer days, especially with hair colour being considered. To preserve natural hair hue or take care of new colour treatment, you would want the colour to never fade.

 

With great hair colour, you are entrusted with great responsibility too. Once you’ve colour-treated the hair, you need to hydrate and nourish it. One needs to apply conditioning protectants and a swim cap so that your hair boasts of longer lasting colour. One would have to change the beauty regime for your hair, even make changes to shower temperature and moisturise the hair often so that it remains better than ever. Hair colour relies on love and care and so some tweaks to the schedule make the difference.

 

Hair can go awry any time in summer; your hair might wither from harsh sunlight or even turn green when affected by chlorine. They are prone to summertime fade too. Here are some tips to help you retain your hair colour in summers:

Also to protect your tresses from the sun, using coconut oil, which has a natural SPF of nearly 6, for your hair would work as a poolside hair protectant along with being a hydrating agent. Coconut oil will help in preventing your hair from fading and also by retaining moisture in your hair. By conditioning at the pool, one would be able to make the best possible move for your hair.

 

 

#3
Wet and condition hair before hitting water

The salt present in seawater fades hair colour quickly, while the chlorine in swimming pools can even discolour hair, adding an ugly green tinge to the hair. So it is hence important to wet your hair and apply conditioner before getting in water, whether in the sea or the swimming pool. Without applying conditioner, your hair will absorb chlorine and bleach while your hair if really damp, will absorb less water. Coconut oil aids in repelling the water, too.

 

 

#4
Choose cleansing cream rather than shampoo

One of the ways to preserve hair colour is to keep all hair cuticles closed, thus preventing dye to seep out. A cleansing cream closes cuticles and stops the colour from coming out. It cleanses the hair and moisturises it, which is beneficial during summers.

 

 

   

#5
Cold-water rinses are very important

Though the hot, humid summer makes one shower almost every hour, it’s better to restrict shampoo days especially on coloured hair and only rely on cool-water rinses instead. This fact helps in preserving hair colour to the optimum. Although people get hot and sweaty and hair nearly stays dirty throughout the day, rinsing with cool water aids your hair in summers since cold water will help to keep cuticles closed, that in turn will restrict your hair colour from fading.

 

 

#6
Opt for a cuticle-sealing vinegar rinse
