Would you like your hair dye to last longer? There are certain habits you can maintain to make this happen

As we talked a few days ago about hair dyes that will be in fashion throughout the year, you will be interested to know how to take care of the tone you chose to renew your appearance. For this we have asked the Dove stylist Cynthia Álvarez to offer you that and other tips on how to take care of your hair when you dye it. One of them is the use of Color Care shampoo and conditioner.

1. How does a woman determine which is the color that favors her the most when it comes to dyeing her hair?

“If you are not sure how to identify it, examine the vein in your arm in natural light. If it looks green, it means you have a warm undertone; If it looks blue, you have a cold undertone. If you can't figure out the color, congratulations, you have a neutral undertone and any hair color would suit you!

2. Once the dye is applied, how many days later is it recommended to wash the hair for the first time and why?

“After coloring your hair, you should wait three days to wash it for the first time. If you can wait four or five days, it is even better. The wait will allow your cuticle to close, trapping the color molecules and leaving a more lasting color."

3. After that first day of washing, how often is it recommended to wash your hair?

“To maintain the color you must wash your hair every third day. If you wash it more, you risk losing the luminosity of the color. You also don't want to remove the natural oils that help condition your hair. Another option is to use Dove Refresh + Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo. This product is perfect for absorbing excess scalp oils."

4. What is the correct way to wash hair?

"Wash your hair with cold water. Although hot showers are very relaxing, hot water will discolor your hair over time. Too much heat leaves hair dry and damaged. Allow color molecules to filter out of hair. Wash it with warm water and rinse the conditioner with cold water."

5. For a correct choice of dye, what components must it have in order to last longer?

“A semi-permanent and demi-permanent color will last a few months. After choosing the color you really like, it's time to make it permanent. Permanent color maintains luminosity for longer. Please note that not all colors are created equal. Deep reds tend to fade faster because the molecules do not penetrate deep enough into the hair shaft. Brown tints have greater staying power because they penetrate deeply."

6. What are the best tips for long-lasting dye color? What products should I apply to the hair?

1. Use a hair care solution created especially for colored hair, such as Dove's Color Care line shampoo and conditioner formulated to maintain color luminosity for up to 40 washes. Also, I advise that when you wash your hair, you keep the shampoo at your roots to create more lather. Then spread it on the rest of the hair."

2. Use a leave-in conditioner designed for colored hair to seal the cuticle for minimal discoloration.

3. Hair tips can dry between washes. Use natural oils like jojoba or coconut oil to rehydrate the curly ends.

4. Cut back on hairstyles that require a lot of heat. Limit them to once or twice a week. When applying heat to your hair, use a thermal protector such as the Dove Smooth & Shine Heat Protection Spray. The spray nourishes and maintains the integrity of your hair with a light and conditioning formula.

5. With the arrival of summer, I always recommend using sunscreen for your hair. Just as it can damage your skin, the sun can also harm your colored hair. UV rays are known for their power to fade. If you don't like wearing sunscreen, at least wear a hat during the day.

6. Chlorinated water and salt water are also harmful to colored hair. Apply coconut oil or Dove Absolute Curls Leave-In Absolute Detangler. It will work as a barrier to protect your color. I like to use it after getting out of the water because it helps keep my hair soft.

7. How can I prevent certain dyes from taking on unwanted colors over time, such as greenish or orange?

“If you have dark hair and tried a catire tint, surely you got results in copper tones. This happens when the hair was not sufficiently lightened and the tones that remained there were not properly neutralized. To neutralize the orange tints, use a blue or purple tint to cancel the coppery.

Chlorine changes catire hair to green. If you notice that your hair turns green, and you have not been in a pool, it may be that your hair is not healthy. The reasons are the use of hot tools, sun exposure or dyes. Apply hydration treatments for hair and deep conditioners."
