Tips for Protecting Your Color-Treated Summer Hair - D'Ametri's Salon

Now that we’ve gone over the hottest hair color highlights of the summer, it’s important that you maintain that vibrant color as long as possible. Summertime tends to be the time when it’s especially difficult to keep your color looking radiant because of all the summer elements – the harsh UV rays from our elevation, chlorine, lake water, and other environmental factors. 

Here are some easy things you can do between your hair color treatments to ensure your hair remains shiny, supple, and healthy without fading that hair color too quickly. 

Use Aveda Hair Care Products. At D’Ametri’s, we use professional Aveda hair care products in our salon, and your hair colorist will recommend the best Aveda products to use for your newly colored hair. It’s important to make sure that your shampoo and conditioner products are specially formulated for color-treated hair. Color Conserve Shampoo and Conditioner are plant-infused products that will keep your hair color looking vibrant longer and resist fading. In between washings, use a dry shampoo like Shampure™ – Dry Shampoo to instantly revive your hair and senses. Even styling products can affect how long your color lasts, so be sure to read the label and only use recommended products. 

Go longer in between hair washing. When you wash your hair every day, the hot water will strip your hair of its natural oils, causing your hair to dry out and the hair color to fade quicker. This is because hot water and shampoo open up the hair cuticle, allowing your new hair color to escape along with the dirt and excess oils that come out from the cuticle. Typically, you only need to wash your hair 2-3 times a week or even less if you find a good dry shampoo that works for you. 

Trim your hair regularly. Split ends and dry hair cause damage to your hair. When you have damaged hair, it has a hard time holding onto its hair color that you’ve worked so hard for. Keep your ends healthy and your hair moisturized with regular trims from your favorite D’Ametri’s Hair Color and Design Studio stylist. Your hair will look healthy and supple and your hair color will remain fresher and brighter for longer. 

Guard against sun damage. We’re the mile-high city, so you know what the sun can do to your skin. That’s why sunscreen is so important for your skin, and it’s vital for your hair as well. Aveda has a sun care line that protects against sun damage with a sun care UV defense and recovery system. While you’re out enjoying our great summer weather, cover your hair with a trendy scarf or a wide-brimmed hat to offer extra protection to both your hair and skin.
