Why Is Your Semi-Permanent Hair Color Fading?

Coloring your hair and maintaining the hair color can be a painstaking task. From your daily haircare routine to the styling tools to your tap water, all your daily activities affect the vibrancy and freshness of your hair color. Make a note of these things to prevent your time, money, effort and hair color from going down the tubes.

1. Using the Wrong Hair Care Products

Using hair products that do not protect color can cause fading. The common ingredient in most commercial shampoos is sulfate which strips the color from your hair, fading hair color and resulting in dull, lifeless hair. To prevent fading of hair color, use color-protectant haircare products which are sulfate-free. ThriveCo’s Hair Healing Shampoo is a good option!

2. Shampooing Colored Hair Too Soon

If you shampoo your hair too soon after coloring it, the color may fade. Shampooing your hair too soon after hair coloring will strip away pigment. Hair color needs time for the coloring pigment to deposit on the hair shaft. So wait at least 24 to 48 hours before washing hair for all the color pigments to settle down on the shaft.

3. Exposure to Harmful Sun Rays

Just like skin, your hair gets damaged under direct sunlight. Exposure to UV rays can lead to hair becoming dry and brittle. The sun can also lighten the hair color, fading the hair color quickly. Wear a hat when you are outside or use UV-protectant products on your hair to prevent the color from fading.

4. Washing Colored Hair In Hot Water

Washing your hair with hot water results in opening the hair's cuticle, which can cause the color to fade more quickly. Experts advise washing hair with cold or lukewarm water to keep the color vibrant and long lasting.

5. Using Hard Water To Wash Colored Hair

Hard water contains minerals that deposit on the strands causing the color to fade or become dull. Soft water is beneficial in preventing hair color from fading. You can either install a home water softener or use bottled drinking water to wash your locks.

Using heating tools on your colored hair isn’t a good idea. The heat makes the cuticles open up which leads to color fading and severe hair damage. Reduce the frequency of using heating tools on colored hair. Also, make it a point to apply heat protectant each time you style your hair.
