Got vivid hair color?! Here are some tips & tricks to keep your vivid hair color beautiful with the Dip Shampoo & Conditioner Bars
Alright mermaids & mermen & merpeople in general :)
Let's dive into the best practices for taking care of vivid hair color at home. Not all of us can make it to the salon for frequent touchups so the best we can hope for is to use products that help keep the color in as long as possible.
That's where we shine.
Our founder, Kate, even made her hair vivid pink during testing & development to make sure these bars were the real deal.
So here are her tips to help maintain color vibrancy while using dip shampoo bars and the dip conditioner bar as a hair mask:
1. Firstly, it's crucial to maintain the hair color by washing it less often.
As we know, frequent washing fades the color more quickly. So, try to stretch out your washes as long as possible, and when you do wash your hair, use lukewarm or cool water instead of hot. You can use dip shampoo bars that are specifically formulated for colored hair, as they are sulfate-free and gentle on your hair, helping to keep your color looking bold and beautiful.
2. After shampooing, you can use the dip conditioner bar as a regular conditioner or as a deep conditioning hair mask.
As a conditioner, it will help to nourish and soften your hair, making it easier to manage. As a deep conditioning hair mask, it works wonders to seal in moisture and prevent your hair color from fading. Simply wet your hair, lather up the dip conditioner bar, apply it generously to your hair, and leave it on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off. Apply heat if you like to be extra, but not necessary :)
3. Stay away from high temperature settings on your heat styling tools when you can
Now, let's talk about heat styling. It's best to avoid using high heat on your vivid hair as it can cause damage and fade your color. If you do use heat styling tools, use a heat protectant spray and keep the temperature on the low side. You can also use the dip conditioner bar as a leave-in conditioner to protect your hair from heat damage and add extra moisture to your locks.
4. Remember to get your protein!
Lastly, porosity plays a vital role in maintaining hair color. If your hair is highly porous, it may be more prone to color fading. This is exactly why we put Hydrolized Rice Protein in the Dip shampoo bar. Hydrolyzed Rice Protein has been shown to significantly increase total hair volume by up to 32%. It also adds natural shine and highlights to the hair. By increasing the ability of the hair and skin to bind moisture, it leads to increased flexibility and tensile strength.
Maintaining vivid hair color at home requires a bit of TLC, and using dip shampoo bars and the dip conditioner bar as a hair mask can help keep your color looking bold and beautiful.
