Tips for taking care of coloured hair

Help your hair colour go the distance and keep that salon-fresh feeling for longer with these insider secrets

Wash your hair less often

Want to keep your colour fresh? Wash your hair less. It really is as simple as that. Shampoo two to three times a week, max – and soak up any excess oil with a dry shampoo on the other days if you need to.

Condition damaged hair

Coloured hair can be more fragile, and fragile hair can struggle to hold on to colour. Nightmare, right? Luckily, you can stock up on a few
essential hair repair products to help condition and rehydrate your locks and stop your colour from fading so fast.

Repair hair with a mask

OK, so we know conditioner is great for keeping coloured hair looking healthy and vibrant. As well as your regular conditioner, it’s wise to sneak in a hair mask session once or twice a week. Just five to 10 minutes can help nourish and repair your hair while keeping the fade at bay. Who wouldn’t want that?

Protect hair from heat

Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Spray by L’Oréal Elvive for Long, Sleek hair

Beat the heat with a protection spray designed to help reduce
damage caused by heat styling. Try spritzing L’Oréal Elvive Dream
Lengths Heat Slayer Spray
before you reach for the heated hair tools.

While heat protection sprays can help, nothing is as good as laying off the hairdryer and straighteners altogether. Keep your hair happy and minimise its exposure to heat styling.


Switch off the styling tools

The style set know that if you want gorgeous, head-turning colour, you’ve got to compromise. Heat styling can fast forward moisture loss and colour fade, so leave the hair dryer, straighteners and curling tongs to one side.

Instead, work L’Oréal Elvive Extraordinary Hair Oil through damp hair to nourish and add shine. Gorgeous!
