If you’re feeling ready to break away from classic hair colors and find your new look, read on to learn about 14 fun hair colors that will take your tresses to the next level.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO CARE FOR A UNIQUE HAIR COLOR?

How you care for and maintain your freshly colored mane will depend on what kind of hair color you opted for—temporary, semi-permanent, or permanent. If you settled on temporary or semi-permanent hair color, you don’t need to worry about maintenance, since you haven’t committed to a new color for the long haul. If you decided to go with a more permanent option, that’s another story. As with all permanent hair colors, in order to help maintain your hue, you’ll need to change up your hair care routine. To do just that, follow our steps below.

1. USE A HAIR CARE SYSTEM FOR COLOR-TREATED HAIR

Stock your shower with a system consisting of a nourishing shampoo, conditioner and hair mask formulated for color-treated hair, such as the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm. Swap out the conditioner for the hair mask once or twice a week to give your unique hair color the extra TLC it deserves.

2. OPT FOR LUKEWARM WATER

It’s not all about the products you use. Your shower preferences play a part in how your hair looks and feels, too. Show your fun hair color some love by turning down the dial in the shower—after all, scalding hot water can strip your hair of oils. Rinse off in lukewarm water instead.

3. PLAY WITH YOUR NATURAL TEXTURE

Unique hair colors look so pretty when paired with curls or waves, so apply a hair mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, to damp strands, then let your hair air dry for soft and bouncy curls.

4. PROTECT YOUR STRANDS FROM THE HEAT

We understand that some hairstyles call for the use of heatstyling tools, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t protect your strands! Always apply a heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which works to calm frizz, seal in shine, and protect your hair from heat damage.
