Freshly dyed hair is such a treat. It's fun to play with the deeply hued strands and enjoy the rich color. But, like all things of beauty, dyed hair does not last forever. Knowing the tips to keep your hair color from fading can prolong your enjoyment, though.
It's an exciting time to be alive for anyone who loves hair color. Do you want to cover some grays and match your natural tone? Done. Would you rather have hair that's literally every color of the rainbow? Done and done. It's mesmerizing to look through social media pics of all the varieties of hair color, from dusty lavender to ice blonde to jet black.
As talented as this current crop of hair stylists may be, there's still one downside to any dye job: the inevitable fade out. Even the prettiest dyed strands are subject to new growth, washings, and stylings. Really, the only way to have hair that holds its color forever is to buy a wig. For the stuff that grows from your head, though, there are a few tricks you can use to make its color last a little longer. Whether you have a few subtle highlights or all-over screaming red dye, these tips can help your color stay fresh and bright.
