You’ve had your hair coloured, you rock it for about 2 weeks and then…it starts to fade! Sadly, colour fade can’t be avoided. Sun, heat styling and washing your hair all contribute to diluting the colour pigments. But there are a few things you can do to help overcome colour fade.
Firstly, if you want a good colour that lasts, you need to start with a good foundation. Colouring your hair if it’s dry or fragile with a rough texture is a no-no. Generally speaking hair that is in poor condition is super absorbent, meaning your cuticles are open and colour just won’t stick. Close those cuticles for long-lasting colour and shine with a high protein treatment.
Ask your salon stylist or colourist about colour preparation before your appointment.
Improve hair strength at home with NAK Ultimate Treatment - 60 Second Repair. Designed to return balance to hair structure and rejuvenate rough, porous hair in 60 seconds. Enriched with hydrolysed rice protein it’s the ultimate pre-colour treatment.
With an improved foundation, how else can you protect against colour fade?
When you’re outside wear a hat to protect your colour from UV, and in addition use a leave-in treatment with UV protection like NAK Ultimate Potion. A light styling serum Ultimate Potion also shields against heat and keeps hair hydrated.
Also, take care of your colour with NAK Colour Fix. A leave-in colour locking treatment, Colour Fix protects your hair cuticles from further damage and locks in colour pigment to minimise colour fade.
