7 tips to maintain your hair color
to maintain your hair color In between salon appointments
Roots overdue for a touchup? Hair color starting to fade? When you can’t make it to the hair salon and want to leave your hair color up to your stylist, you can still maintain and extend the life of your hair color at home in between salon appointments with these 7 tips:
use a sulfate-free
Sulfate free shampoos and conditioners help maintain the natural oils on your scalp, leaving your hair feeling more moisturized, preserving shine, and keeping your hair color fresher, longer. Whether you’re a vibrant red head or a bold brunette, our sulfate-free Color Lustre Shampoo and Conditioner prevent your hair color from fading, protect the hair fiber, and balance the scalp's natural oils. Both Color Lustre shampoo and conditioner feature two of our most precious ingredients, Musk Rose Oil and Goji Berry Extract. Musk Rose Oil is rich in fatty acids that deeply nourish and strengthen the hair fiber, while Goji Berry Extract is loaded with antioxidant-rich goji berry extract to protect the hair from fading
While there is nothing more relaxing than taking a hot shower, high water temperatures can contribute to quick fading color. Hot water strips away color faster by opening the surface of the hair cuticle and allowing color to escape. Shower using cooler temperatures to prolong your hair color and shine.
Stylist Hair Tip: To boost shine and seal in hair color, quickly rinse your hair with cold water after you are finished conditioning. The cold water will help reseal the hair cuticle and lock in your hair color.
Over-cleansing your hair results in the natural oils on your scalp being stripped away. This leads to a loss in moisture and results in less shine and hair color that fades quicker. To protect your hair color from fading, try skipping a few days in between washes.
No matter the season, UV rays can damage and fade your hair color. Just as you would apply sunscreen to your face as part of your everyday skincare routine, always apply a protective product to your color-treated hair before heading outside. The antioxidant-rich goji berry extract in our Color Lustre hair products helps protects the hair from fading in the sun. Taking a vacation soon?

If you find yourself reaching for heat styling tools often, it is important to use a leave-in conditioning treatment that helps protect against heat and keep hair moisturized. Frequent heat styling can dry out your hair and accelerate hair color fade. To maintain healthy and shiny hair when styling, apply our Color Lustre Thermo-Milk Blow Dry Primer as a prep product before blow drying. This leave-in heat protectant for color-treated hair provides lightweight conditioning from mid-lengths to ends while preserving a shiny hair color.

conditioner & a hair mask
Keeping your color-treated hair moisturized is key to fighting hair color fade. To help maintain hair color in between salon visits, apply a color-safe hair mask 1-2 times per week in place of your usual conditioner. Our Color Lustre Hair Mask instantly restores the hair’s protective layer to delicately preserve hair color and deeply nourish the hair fiber leaving deeply conditioned, vibrant, shiny hair.
