How Often to Wash Color-Treated Hair?
If you spend big bucks on coloring your hair at the salon, obviously you want to make your hair color last as long as possible. So how often can you wash your color-treated hair?

Well, first of all, to make hair color last longer, always apply hair color to clean healthy hair compared to the opposite, dirty and damaged. It is common sense to use hair color on clean, healthy hair to get the most longevity from the service. So how often should you wash your color-treated hair? It all depends on how you prepare your hair before coloring. Read on to learn more.

Once you’ve completed the hair coloring process we recommend not to use shampoo to remove the hair color instead use COLURE Leave-In Spray Plus to lock in your hair color and or use any COLURE conditioner in place of shampoo. It may seem out of the ordinary, yet this method works well if you had washed your hair before the hair coloring service. Avoid cleansing your color-treated hair within 48 hours after the hair coloring service. It takes about two days for the cuticle layer to close and become durable enough to withstand water and shampoo. The waiting period will trap the hair color molecule, allowing for hair to last until the next salon visit. For more information on our Zero Color Fade solution visit our blog at to learn more.
