If you have decided to dye your hair a bright color, you are going to need to make sure that you take steps to protect the coloring. You might have noticed that the last time you dyed your hair a bright color, the color faded quickly and it didn't look very good a few weeks later. In order to avoid that problem, follow these tips to make sure that your hair color lasts as long as possible.
1. Make Your Hair Healthy, Even if You Have to Damage It to Get the Color
The first thing that you might have to do in order to get the hair color that you want is bleach your hair. This can be frustrating because you know that you are damaging your hair by bleaching it. However, if you want neon pink hair and currently have black hair, you are going to need to take some steps to lighten your hair up first. Damaged hair does not hold color as well.
In order to deal with the necessity of bleaching without losing your hair color quickly because your hair has been damaged, take a week or so in between bleaching your hair and applying the dye to nourish your hair back to life. Use hair wraps and masks that are filled with repair and recovery solutions to add some moisture back into your hair. This will help your hair hold any color that you then apply to it for a longer period of time.
2. Mix Your Dye With Conditioner
When you apply the dye to your hair, you are going to need to mix it with leave-in conditioner, rather than whatever the packaging recommends. The reason for this is that the leave-in conditioner will allow you to continue to nourish your hair, which will increase the chances that the color stays longer. The conditioner will also allow you to keep the dye in your hair for a longer period of time without causing damage to your hair. You want to keep the dye in for a few hours, rather than for the few minutes that the packaging often recommends in order to get a deeper, longer-lasting color.
3. Use Cold Water to Rinse Out the Dye
Finally, use cold water to rinse out the dye. Warm water is going to open the hair cuticles, which is going to allow the color that has been absorbed by the hair to drain out. Cold water will not do this. Cold water will also tend to make your hair bleed less if you have multiples colors in it, allowing you to preserve the integrity of your color lines.

Hello, my name is Ken. Welcome. I am excited to share my knowledge about spas and salons on this site. I started going to the spa with my mother during my teen years. The spa trips helped us heal from a shaky situation that depleted our mental reserves. I found the value of the spa visits within just a few moments of arriving. I now treat my family to frequent trips to the spa and salon to rejuvenate their spirits. I hope to inspire you to enjoy trips to these amazing venues on your own or with family and friends. Thanks.
