Leaving the salon with a new hair color can make you feel like a million dollars!

However, that feeling can quickly fade along with the color of your hair. Various culprits contribute to fading color, but the good news is that you can be proactive in ensuring your new shade makes it to your next visit.

One culprit to otherwise beautifully colored hair, is exposure to everyday elements such as the sun and water. UV rays penetrate hair, zapping our tresses of its radiant hue, while in water heat and chlorine can slowly chip away at hair’s highlights.

We can’t just stay indoors all day to avoid the sun and taking a cold shower is unpleasant, but we can fight back by using products that protect our hair.

Redken’s Shampoo and Conditioner Color Extend line is one such combatant. It is designed to address environmental factors that contribute to color fading and works to remove mineral deposits from the hair, finishing with a protective coating to prevent further damage. Redken’s After Sun Conditioner is specifically designed to address hair after being exposed to the sun and contains a patented UV filter that helps counteract any damage you’ve accumulated during the day.

After shampooing, you can continue to protect your hair with a color sealer such as John Master Organics Herbal Cider Hair Clarifier or a mask such as Kerastase Reflection Chroma Riche Luminous Softening Treatment. Either one will provide your hair with added shine and damage control.

All these efforts combined, your new hair color glow shouldn’t end as soon as you leave the salon. With a little effort, you’ll have hair color that lasts!
