Hair is one of the many things that we have the ability to change, so why not dye it fun colors and rock the look that you’ve always wanted? Tish & Snookys Manic Panic vegan hair dye provides you with the bold, vibrant colors that you want while avoiding the harsh ingredients that so many hair dyes have. With that being said, regular maintenance to your beautifully colored hair still needs to happen. With all color-treated hair, there are certain things that need to happen to ensure that the color remains vibrant but also that the hair continues to look great. That is why, in today’s blog, we are going to go over a few of the things that you can do to provide the best care for your hair. Let’s dive in.

Wait to Shampoo

Once you’ve dyed your hair and have rinsed the color out, you want to take some time before you shampoo your hair. Specifically, we suggest waiting roughly 72 hours before you shampoo your hair. Even though it may be difficult for you to hold off on giving your hair the shampooing that you want, you will be so glad that you waited when your color is vibrant and bright days after the dying. Ultimately, waiting to shampoo gives your hair some extra time to soak up the dye, providing you with that bright color for a longer period of time.

Use Quality Products

As much as we all hate to admit it, you can’t use cheap products to care for your high-end hair. If you’re wanting a hair dye that leaves you with an incredible color, you need to make sure that you’re using quality products. So, when you go to select a hair dye, spend some time looking at the ingredients but also at the company’s mission. Aside from hair dye, you want to make sure that the products that you’re using to maintain and care for your hair are high-quality and made to tend to color-treated hair. 

Cooler Showers

For those of you that love steamy, hot showers, you’re going to want to turn down the temperature when shampooing your hair. While it feels incredible after a long, stressful day of work, the hot water can actually lead to color-treated hair fading faster. The hot water will open the pores of your hair, releasing the color. So, when shampooing, stick to cooler temperatures that won’t open the pores of your hair, giving you a longer-lasting dye job. 

Wash Less

As you may have heard, washing your hair less has actually proven to be incredibly beneficial. Aside from it being great for people with dryer hair, it can be extremely good to hold off on showering when you’ve color treated your hair. If you have lighter hair that you’ve dyed a vibrant color or you know that your hair is prone to fading fast, consider washing your hair less. Stick to quick rinses with cool water or opt for dry shampoo on days that you plan to skip washing. You’d be surprised how much longer that color sticks around when you start washing your hair every couple of days. 

Use Leave-In Treatment

In the case that you’re worried about your hair looking fried or dry after a dye-job, leave-in treatments are something that you absolutely want to utilize. Hair that has been color-treated is much more susceptible to dryness, which is why you want to find a leave-in treatment that will provide you with the extra moisture that your hair needs. As we mentioned earlier, you do want to make sure that you’re finding a quality product rather than a cheap product with ingredients that will do more bad than good.
