I get asked this question a lot so I feel like a post on here might help spread the word. 😊
"So like, how long do those colors even last for?"
Well, there are a lot of key factors that determine that. What kind of shampoo/conditioner you use, what kind of water you have, how often you wash your hair, the temperature of the water you use, the amount of time you're in the sun, etc. etc. ☀️💦💇🏼
When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, I always try to tell people to stay with the brand your color is. So if I used a lot of @joicointensity vivids, I would go with their Color Endure shampoo. If I used a lot of @kenraprofessional metallics, I would go with their Color Charge Shampoo. 🍓🍒🍇
If you have hard water, I believe it can cause color to fade quicker. Also, the temperature of the water is a big key factor in preserving your color. If you're wanting your color to fade out quicker, wash in hot water. If you want your color to last you the longest, wash in cold water. ❄️💧
Sun damage is also something a lot of people forget about but it too can effect your hair color. If you are always at the beach or you're just always outside, you may want to use something that has UV ray protection. A lot of thermal protectants and hairsprays have it. ☀️
That pretty much sums up what I know when it comes to preserving your hair color.
Semi-Permanents can last 2-4 weeks
Demi-Permanents can last 3-6 weeks
Permanents can last 4-8 weeks
But everything listed above is what determines how long it'll last for you! 😊
