Are you tired of having your hair color fading and not looking the greatest as it did when you just had it dyed days ago all because we enjoy going outside during the summer to sunbathe, swim and do other fun sports? The Sun and water just so happen to be the #1 cause for your hair color to fade, so what can you do to keep that from happening ever again? I have found some easy to do, no time wasting color boosts to help keep your color looking sexy and vibrant all summer long!
The first one you can use if you are just going for some gorgeous highlights then you should try using the “Matrix Biolage ColorLast Shine Shake”, which is $17 at drugstore.com. All you need to do is spritz this all over the top of your strands after your morning shower, or after swimming in the pool; it conditions to help keep your color vivid and shiny, plus it smells good.
The next one is the “Bumble and Bumble Color Minding UV Protective Styling Balm”, which is perfect if you love your hair color exactly the way it is. The formula’s UV filters stop the heat and sun rays from fading the color out of your strands. To make sure your hair is always protected, work a dime to a quarter size amount from the roots to the ends after each shower. You can buy this product at bumbleandbumble.com for $28.
If you are going to the beach or living on the beach then this product called “Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Sun Recovery Spray for $20 at alternahaircare.com is the best one for you. All different summer sports can cause a lot of trouble for your hair, which can make it dull and dry, and let’s face it nobody wants that. Every time you reapply your sunblock then spritz this leave-in conditioner to keep your hair bright and hydrated.
If you really do enjoy spending a lot of time outdoors then “L’Oreal Paris Color Vibrancy Instant Shock Treatment for $7 at lorealparisusa.com is the best one for you. This is a mask for your hair which contains antioxidants and linseed oil to rehab your hair color in just 1 minute. Use this instead of your regular conditioner whenever you need a brightening boost.
If you like to swim then “Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer for $17.99 at walgreens.com is the best. The Orchid extract repels the water that rinses the color out of your hair.
If you tend to skip washing your hair as much as you can then you should look into buying the “U Luxury Color Protectant Hair Perfume in Bianca for $35 at unitehair.com. This doesn’t just protect your hair color with UV filters, but it also makes your strands smell like fresh grapefruit (if you enjoy that kind of scent). Plus, a bonus, this product lets your avoid color-stripping H20 for another day!
If you have your roots showing and don’t have time to sit in your bathroom or go to a salon then “L’Oreal Paris Superior Preference Mousse Absolue” is just the right product for you, which is $15 at ulta.com. Just pick the box up that matches closest to your color and there is no need to mix a bunch of chemicals together; all you have to do is shake the bottle and then pump out only the amount your need to cover your roots. In just 30 minutes, rinse and then a month or so later you can use whatever is left in the bottle to touch it up again. Talk about a money and time saver!
If you have brown hair that is beginning to look a little too orange then “John Frieda Colour Refreshing Gloss for Cool Brunette” for $11.92 at Walmart.com is the best choice. All you need to do is treat your hair with this product on a week by smoothing a quarter-size drop of this tinted glaze completely through your hair after you shampoo and condition.
