How to maintain and protect color-treated hair?

Here are some natural tips for maintaining and protecting color-treated hair:

  • Use sulfate-free and chemical free shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated for color-treated hair. You can try Freshmade natural shampoo.
  • Avoid hot tools like flat irons and curling wands, and let hair air dry whenever possible.
  • Deep condition once a week with a natural, moisturizing treatment, such as coconut oil or honey.
  • Limit exposure to the sun and other environmental factors that can fade color by wearing a hat or scarf.
  • Avoid chlorine and salt water, which can strip color and damage hair.
  • Use a UV protectant spray before exposure to the sun.
  • Rinse hair with cool water after washing to help seal the cuticle and lock in color.
  • Limit washing to every other day or less to reduce the frequency of color fading.
  • Consider using natural, semi-permanent hair color options, such as henna, to reduce the frequency of chemical treatments.

It is important to consult with a stylist to determine the best course of action for your individual hair type and color-treated hair.
