HOW TO TAKE CARE OF COLOR-TREATED HAIR

Have we convinced you to take the hair color plunge? If so, it’s important to note that your regular hair care routine may need an upgrade after you’ve dyed your strands.

STEP #1: USE A SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER DESIGNED FOR COLOR-TREATED HAIR

The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair and Defend Conditioner are formulated to preserve your color and mend damaged, processed hair fibers. After rinsing out the shampoo, apply the conditioner and leave it on for one to three minutes, then rinse again.

STEP #2: SWAP IN A HAIR MASK ONCE OR TWICE A WEEK

Sometimes, color-treated hair just needs a little extra love. So, once or twice a week, swap out your conditioner for the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Remedy Balm. After shampooing with the coordinating shampoo, apply the hair mask to wet hair, leave it on for three to five minutes, then rinse.

STEP #3: GIVE IN TO YOUR NATURAL TEXTURE

Many of these trendy hair colors add serious dimension to your strands—so don’t be afraid to rock your natural curls or waves. Put down the heat tools and let your hair air dry every once in a while. Apply a wave spray, braid your hair, then undo the braid once your hair has dried for pretty, loose waves.

Now, not only do you know which colors to consider rocking in 2020, but also how to care for them in order to keep your color looking its best. If you’re worried that embracing a color-treated mane will require too much maintenance, consider rocking one of these hues with a lived-in look.
