If you have been looking for tips on how to keep hair dye from fading, then this article is for you. In fact, it's a must read for everyone. I was in a dilemma when I first found out that dying was fading and I will share with you some of the best methods to prevent this from happening.
First of all, it's important to know that when the color fades that the dye isn't actually gone from your hair. What happens is that as the dye works it changes the pigment in your hair and thus the color. This explains why you get a gray or a yellow tone in your hair after you've applied the dye. The color has actually changed and will stay that way for about six weeks.
It's a good idea to mix your own colors so that you can control the intensity of each color. However, if you buy premixed shades you can get more control over the type of hair dye you'll be using. If you're just starting out, be sure to experiment until you find a style that looks good on you.
Make sure that you don't bleach your hair very often. A common misconception about dyes is that you should never bleach your hair because you'll end up with the same color. But really, what happens is that the color of the dye changes. While it will still be on your hair it won't remain as strong.
Also, never use hot water to wash your hair. The heat is what causes the dye to change your hair. So be sure to avoid any hot water whenever possible.
If you follow these methods then you should be able to prevent dye fades and shine as well. Don't forget to learn how to keep hair dye from fading too much and coming off when washing.
