How to Make Your Hair Color Last

It doesn't matter whether the economy is in a positive state or not, because currently visiting a hair salon is definitely getting expensive. I mean a visit to the hair salon for a wash, cut and dye could literally cost you half of your mortgage payment. It's absolutely astonishing, isn't it? To say the least, beauty is not cheap. However, there are plenty of options and alternatives for you, if you're looking to get the best out of your hair dye job, while saving yourself a few bucks in the budget department. After all, it's not fair that a salon visit should send the budget lines in your spreadsheet busting off the page. Unfortunately, it's the truth and reality so follow these tips, and skip out on some hair salon visits, pocket some cash and still look as amazing as you ever have looked before. It sounds like a win-win, doesn't it?

I know, I know. The hassle of doing an at-home dye is well, a hassle! Not to mention the mess and the risk of completely messing up your hair, but listen to me closely, ladies and gentleman (mostly ladies!). If you follow the instructions religiously, the chances are, your hair will look as fabulous as it does when the hair stylist does it! Make sure to go with a trusted brand and even ask someone to help you out to ensure that you don't miss coloring any pieces of your hair. If you have long, thick hair, think about using two boxes on your head to ensure that all of your hair thoroughly gets lathered! Plus, you'll be paying approximately $10 for a at home dye kit, in comparison to a $100 bill at a salon, so two boxes of home hair dye won't put a dent in your wallet, and that leftover money can be spent on a little shopping spree rendezvous with the girls! Money talks, ladies.

Once you have your bold and ecstatic hair color, whether you went to a salon or did the job at home, it's imperative that you do what you can to not only keep your hair healthy, but keep your hair holding that fabulous color you just adopted! Keep your hair moisturized with some hair serums and deep conditioners. If your hair is dry and breaking off, it only makes sense that the color is shedding off as well. The healthier it is, the better it will look, and the longer! Avoid chlorine if possible and try to stay clear of that harmful sun!

On top of those tips, remember to always use color friendly shampoo to hold your hair color in longer, without changing it to some random shade. I once died my hair black (don't ask. Blonde to black... I don't know what I was thinking!). Anyway, I did love it at the time, but I didn't pay attention to my choice in shampoo and conditioner, since this was the first time I ever dyed my hair. Needless to say, my black locks went to an electric blue which then turned into a green-grey shade, and let's just say that my hair was absolutely horrendous. I totally opted for some FAST Shampoo and Conditioner to grow that dye job out! What's the moral of the story? Use hair products that are colour safe, so you don't end up looking like the Grinch, as I did!

Touch up your roots at home! There are so many excellent products out there that offer an immediate root clean up with technology to match the correct color. Although I have not tried these myself, I can only advise to proceed with caution because often times, the color of dye that your hair stylist used can't be found in stores and I'm not sure how much I would trust that technology within their chemicals and blah blah blah, that every brand preaches about. If you end up with a funky dye job, you can use FAST Shampoo and Conditioner. I'll get to that later on, though.

At the end of the day, and if all else fails, you may find yourself simply wanting to grow out your dye job. Maybe you want to give your hair a break from all the damage that coloring brings to it, or maybe you realized that your hair simply doesn't hold color well, and the fade is something not so desirable, and dying it is completely out of the question. Whatever your reason may be for wanting to grow your hair dye out, I have the ultimate solution for you. FAST Shampoo and Conditioner is a product that is proven to get your hair growing quickly and longer in length than usual, allowing you to get that bad hair dye out as soon as possible, without having to sacrifice your look. There's nothing worse than your hair stylist telling you that they're going to have to cut off 5 inches just to rejuvenate and fix your hair, right? So avoid having to rock a boy-cut or a not-so-flattering bob and use Fast Shampoo and Conditioner to quickly grow your hair out longer, before you have to take the scissors to it.

Hopefully you never have to experience the last tip. Of course, when you dyed your hair, you did so to enhance your appearance and sometimes it can go completely down south, or simply be something that you didn't expect. I am not trying to jinx you in any way, shape or form. I'm simply giving you the emergency option of Fast Shampoo and Conditioner if your hair dye fails you. However, follow these ultimate hair coloring tips and tricks to keep your hair dye job to pure perfection and keep it lasting as long as possible, giving you the radiance of beauty that every woman, and man deserves.
