Five quick and easy ways to keep your color "first-day" fresh:
Though your locks may look and feel renewed, coloring can take a toll on even the healthiest of hair. To avoid breakage and moisture loss, avoid cleansing again for at least 48 hours after your initial rinse.
Opt for a Color-Depositing Cleanser & Conditioner
Winter weather can dull your newly tinted tresses in a matter of days, so stock-up on a hue-enhancing duo — like Bb's low pH, extra-mild formulas ($22 each, BumbleandBumble.com) — to extend the life of your color.
Add SPF to the Mix
SPF is a must 24/7/365, so amp up your daily conditioner with a tablespoon of your favorite lightweight SPF (per bottle; face or body).
Laminate Your Locks
A weekly intensive treatment — like Kelly van Gogh's Rich & Delicious ($48, KellyVanGogh.com) — will help rebuild, restore and protect your hair against everything from caustic water to environmental pollutants.
Seal Each Strand
Protect your color before using heated styling tools with a thermal guard formulated for your specific hair type.
