However, the hair dye may fade away after 15 to 30 days from the day of application. It is very important to prevent your hair colour from fading out, since you apply it again after a few days, thus damaging your hair.

Hair colouring comes with its own drawbacks for your hair. It may weaken your hair strands, make your hair dry and leads to hair fall, if done frequently. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to protect your hair dye for long, so that there will be much time gap left for the next hair colouring.

Giving time to your hair helps to repair the damage naturally. However, you have to take extra care of your hair. This will also keep the dye on your hair for long.

Here are some best tips to make your hair dye stay for longer.


Don’t Wash Your Hair With Hot Water

Hot water can easily remove your hair colour and fade it. Hot water can loosen the dye molecules from your hair that get washed off easily.


Protect Your Hair With A Sunscreen

Use a hair sunscreen, just like how you apply sunscreen on your skin. Apply sunscreen on your damp hair before going out in the sun. This protects your hair from damage and also keeps the hair dye for long.


Deep Condition

To prevent the fading of hair dye, deep conditioning treatment for your hair once in a week is a must. Apply the conditioner from your roots till end of your hair. Leave it on your hair for 30 minutes and wear a shower cap. Wash off with cold water.


Mild Shampoo

You can use a mild baby shampoo that is sulphate-free. This will clean your hair without fading your hair colour.


Avoid Washing Your Hair Daily

Wash your hair once in a week. Daily washing can fade your hair colour and will also dry out your hair. The bond of the colour with your hair gets weakened due to frequent water wash and then gets washed off.


Avoid Blow Drying And Heat Styling

Avoid using hot curling iron and blow drying equipments for your dyed hair. Dyed hair is more prone to damage and heat and can also fade your hair dye.
