As many of us know, gray hair can be trickier to color and maintain than regular hair. But with the right care, you can ensure your hair color stays vivid all the way until your next application!
Here are four steps you need to know for caring for gray hair that’s colored:
Gray hair can become dry, wiry and unmanageable – which works against even the freshest hair color. To combat dryness, make sure to use a rich, moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
You can also apply a leave in conditioner or styling cream overnight to hydrate hair and make for easier styling. Essential oil treatments can help soften unruly strands too.
2. Fight dullness with shine
Gray hair is naturally dryer than regular hair and may appear dull and lackluster, which can add age to your appearance. But it’s not too hard to boost up shine for youthful looking hair!
If you have thicker hair, apply an essential oil, such as argan oil – this can add smoothness and shine to locks. For those with finer hair, try a lightweight leave in conditioner or shine product to amp up your luster.
3. Protect vibrant color
Since grays are more resistant to color and may fade faster, your tresses deserve some extra protection. To preserve color, always use gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, using cool water rather than hot water.
Follow up with a color deposit product, such as eSalon’s Color Enhancing Treatment , which deposits pigment to boost up your hue between color applications. (It also leaves hair silky soft!)
