Reading time: 2 minutes

We've all been there - Nothing kills your confidence quite like watching your fresh, expensive dye job slowly start to lose its radiance. 

With the proper hair care routine and some expert tips, you can prevent premature color fading and enjoy shiny, long-lasting color. Let's dive into what it takes to keep your color true.

The Causes of Colour Fade

Before we get into solutions, it helps to understand what causes your gorgeous new shade to start looking lackluster so quickly. The main culprits are:

  • Heat styling with tools like straighteners and curling wands  
  • Sun exposure and UV rays 
  • Washing hair too frequently 
  •  Using the wrong shampoo and conditioner 
  • Not using suitable serums  that add a protective layer

Build a Colour-Protecting Routine

The products you use at home are everything when making colour last. You'll want to swap out shampoos and conditioners containing sulphates, which can quickly strip away your fresh dye job.

For the best results, we suggest you look for products labeled 'colour-protecting' or 'colour-depositing'. These are specifically formulated to extend the life of your hair colour, giving you the confidence that your shade will stay vibrant for longer.

Don't skip out on weekly deep conditioning treatments. 

These are crucial for combating dryness and replenishing moisture, helping seal the cuticle and trap colour molecules inside each strand. The Hair Yoga Repair & Grow Setthe rich, Ayurvedic blend of herbs deeply fortifies your hair. This 100% vegan oil can also be used as a pre-shampoo treatment to replenish moisture and create a protective barrier around each strand.

When styling, always use a thermal protectant spray or serum before applying any hot tools. If you skip this step, the heat can really accelerate colour oxidation and fading. You'll also want to incorporate serum to add an extra protective barrier around each coloured strand.

Refresh and Revive at Home

With a few simple tweaks to your haircare regimen, you can make that fresh-from-the-salon colour last for months! Don't settle for dull, faded hair - try using quality colour-protecting serums like our HairYoga line to maintain vibrant color until your next appointment.
