How to Keep Your Hair Color Vibrant, Longer

You take time and money to maintain your hair color, don’t let it fade faster than it should. Here are some tips for keeping your hue true for longer.

Use products designed for color-treated hair
When you do wash your hair, use a shampoo and conditioner that seal your hair cuticles, so your hair holds on to the dye. Paul Mitchell Color Protect Daily Shampoo and Conditioner are good bets. Avoid using a clarifying shampoo, unless it’s right before your next hair color visit. They strip your hair (that’s what they’re designed to do) and make your color fade much faster.

Go easy on the shampooing
You'll want to be gentle with your color-treated hair. Color fades with cleansing, so try to avoid over-washing it.

Protect your color from heat
Heat styling can damage color-treated hair, causing it to look dull and faded. Products like Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair Triple Rescue helps protect hair from excessive heat and conditions at the same time, leaving your color-treated locks looking healthy, shiny, and vibrant.

Style Tip
Shampoos formulated for specific hair types isn’t a marketing ploy. Different products contain ingredients that address individual hair concerns, like color treated, dryness, or excess oil.
