An effective routine to make your hair colour last through the summer

Written by Sanya HamdaniMay 11, 2021

Summer is a harsh season for your skin and hair. The sun's UV rays can make your skin look uneven, cause breakouts, turn hair brittle, and whatnot. This season is particularly risky for those with coloured and chemically treated hair. Without proper protection and care, the colour can easily fade and all your money will go down the drain.

To make sure your gorgeous hair colour lasts through summer and beyond you need to follow a routine for coloured hair. Here’s what you need to do.

1. Choose the right shampoo

An ideal hair care routine begins by getting the basics right. So, start by picking the right shampoo for coloured hair. A colour protecting shampoo that does not contain sulphate will be ideal. Sulphates contain salt that tend to reduce moisture and lead to colour fading. The Tresemme Pro Protect Sulphate Free Shampoo provides gentle care to coloured and treated hair with the goodness of argan oil for long-lasting shine and vibrancy.

2. Use a hair mask

One of the after-effects of hair colouring is moisture loss. It leaves your strands looking dry, brittle and damaged. Using a shampoo and conditioner won’t be enough, it is important to use a deep conditioning hair mask that will lock the moisture in and prevent the harsh rays of the sun from robbing it. The Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask revives dull and damaged hair by deeply nourishing it with keratin actives. Using this mask just once a week will ensure the colour does not fade and your hair looks healthy throughout summer.

3. Leave-in conditioner

Think of a leave-in conditioner like sunscreen for your hair. It coats the hair strands to prevent moisture loss and protect it from the sun's damaging rays. A small amount of the TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Leave-In Conditioner protects dry, damaged hair from environmental elements, chemical treatments, and brushing. Adding it to your summer hair care routine will definitely change your hair game for good.

4. Avoid heat styling tools

The use of heat styling tools should be avoided by all hair types during summer, especially by those with color-treated hair. Keep those curling rods and straightening irons away because the heat from these tools will make your strands lose moisture and make them look damaged and lifeless.
