Going from years of red hair, to my new purple shade, has been quite the hair journey.
How to Stop Purple Hair Fading
⇥ Keep hair washing to a minimum: I’ve been washing my hair twice a week and this has really helped to keep the colour fresh. In between I use a little bit of dry shampoo, but to be honest, it doesn’t seem to get all that greasy washing it this infrequently anyway! I did use to wash every other day though, so it’s weird getting used to a new routine.
⇥ Pop some colour pigment in your conditioner: It’s really simple to grab something like the L’Oreal Colourista colours (buy here from Notino) and squeeze a helping in to your conditioner. Leave it on for a few minutes whilst you have a shower then simply rinse off!
⇥ Use a super moisturing shampoo: I’ve been loving the hydrating shampoo from Shea Moisture. I find their conditioners a little heavy for my hair, but the shampoo is the perfect compromise between cleansing the dirt away and adding a little bit of moisture without stripping the colour out.
⇥ Deep condition at least once a week: I tend to do a deep condition at least once a week – but I do it before my regular shampoo and conditioner, just so it doesn’t weight the hair down too much. This way I can still use my mix of conditioner and colour pigment after the treatment has worked its magic.
