How To Keep Hair Color From Fading — Summer-Proof Your Hair With Expert Tips

Stars like Scarlett Johansson, Tina Fey, Cameron Diaz and Jessica Alba all rely on Joel to keep their hair looking amazing.

Check out Joel’s top five tips for fab hair all summer:

If you are going into a chlorine pool, saturate your hair with fresh water before you jump in. By doing this, your hair absorbs a minimal amount of chlorine so it is less damaging. As soon as you get out, rinse your hair with fresh water (or wash it, if possible) to get the chlorine out of your hair.

I know we are all conditioned to getting our color done on a dirty hair day but you might want to rethink that in the summer. Since you sweat more in the summertime and hair color oxidizes when it comes into direct contact with sweat, it’s best to shampoo the day of your color. It will keep you hair color from prematurely fading.

Keep Your Hair Moisturized

Use Mythic Oil Colour Glow Oil — this amazing oil contains Linseed Oil, Cranberry Oil and UV filters giving your hair UV protection and radiant shine. You can use it as a pre blow dry treatment to deliver smoothness and shine and/or as a finishing product for shine, UV protection and frizz protection. It’s perfect for color treated hair — just use 1-2 pumps throughout your hair before you head into the sun!

Repair any sun damage with an in-salon Mythic Oil Treatment. Rejuvenate the life of your hair with L’Oréal Professionnel’s customizable in-salon treatment. The color protection concentrate is formulated with Linseed Oil which keeps your color looking rich and vibrant and protects against fading in the sun! You can add a treatment with a blow dry or haircut after you have spent summer in the sun.

Extend your color with every shampoo by using L’Oréal Professionnel’s INOA Color Care Collection. It contains Argan Oil, which maintains the natural lipids on the outer layer of the hair and Green Tea extract, which is a natural antioxidant that nourishes the hair to protect and maintain color radiance and intensity.

Are you looking to protect your color this summer, HollywoodLifers?
