      I put low lights in my hair,I look better with darker hair. My problem is the more I wash my hair the more my hair fades. How do you make your color last?

        • First of all, were the low-lights done with permanent color, demi-permanent color or semi-permanent color?  If it was done with permanent color and the color fades, i would venture to say that your hair may be porous and, while it might take the color very well, it releases it quickly, too.  Same for the other colors but it is to be expected with the demi- and semi-permanent.

          A good shampoo and condition is essential to maintain your hair’s quality and condition.  I recommend a product made by L‘Anza called Trauma Treatment be used by all of my color clients.  It can be a rinse out conditioner or a leave in, depending on your hair’s needs.  I use this product immediately after a color to stop the oxidation and seal the cuticle of the hair.

          Talk to your colorist about your problem and let her/him offer you some strategies.

        • Daphne it is permanent. I was told hard water takes color out faster. I try to stay out of the sun too. I really don’t like to color to often,I know it not good for the hair.I have to have a toner put on sometimes . Is that hard on the hair?

        • Hard water is just as it’s name implies...HARD.  Hard on your skin, hard on your dishes, hard on your hair.  It’s all the chemicals found in hard water that wear on your skin and hair (and everything else).

          As long as your hair color isn’t lasting as you’d like, perhaps you should talk to your colorist about using a semi-permanent color.  That way, you‘re coloring as needed and you‘re not beating your hair up as badly.  Toners are simply fillers...typically used to tone down red/orange/yellow present in the hair.

          Semi-permanent colors have come a LONG way...if used properly, your hair will be in better condition in one year of using it than if you didn’t use it at all.

        • If you have hard water you can purchase a shower filter.
          I have the Jonathan Product Beauty Water Shower Purification System.  I take baths alot and use the shower to fill the tub.  

          I live in an apartment and the water has a chlorine smell.  I try to watch anything that goes into my pores.  I absolutely love it and swear by it.  

          I always use a shampoo that is especially for color treated hair.  I try to not skimp on my hair products.  I have a brand from the salon that I love and I have been using Burt’s Bees also.

          Hugs-
          Dianne
