If you have recently had your hair dyed in a beautiful new color, of course you want to enjoy the color as long as possible. We give you 10 tips that will ensure the lasting of your new hair color. Read on quickly!
1. Take good care of your hair
This tip may seem like a catch-all, but having well-cared-for hair is extremely important. On well-cared-for hair, hair color looks better and stays radiant longer. So take care of your hair as standard and give it that extra touch in the week before you come in for your new hair color.
2. Do not wash your hair for the first 24 hours after coloring.
The color pigments adhere during the first 24 hours and when you wash your hair, you might lose pigment. Postpone your wash for a while to allow the pigments to bond properly.
3. Use hair products designed specifically for color-treated hair.
It's best to use a shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for color-treated hair. We are fans of the Keune Color Brillianz Shampoo and conditioner, it contains the Color Sealing Complex which helps the hair retain its bright color for a long time.
For ladies with blonde hair, we recommend the Care Silver Savior Shampoo or So Pure Cool shampoo. These shampoos contain violet pigments, which neutralize the yellow glow in the hair. So you can continue to enjoy your ashy or icy color.
4. Use a mask regularly for intensive care
Try using a mask once a week. This will condition your hair intensively and keep your locks glowing. We have different types of luxury hair masks from Keune, choose a mask that suits your hair needs. Discover all luxury hair masks of Keune here.

5. Avoid too hot water while showering
Make sure when you shower that the water is not too hot. Too hot water is never good for your hair, but for colored hair it's even more important to pay attention to this. Also, don't get your head too close to the jet to avoid drying out and fading color.
6. Do not wash your hair more than 3 times a week
Our advice is not to wash your hair more than 3 times a week. If you wash your hair more often, your color may fade faster.

Do you already see your hair getting a little greasy between washes? Then a dry shampoo is a perfect solution. This product absorbs the oils from the hair, leaving your hair fresh and clean.
7. Use a heat protectant against the heat of a hair dryer, straightener or curling iron
Do you often use heat tools to style your hair? Then protect your hair with a heat protective product. This way the hair is not damaged and the color stays longer. Never put your styling tool hotter than 180 degrees. Discover all our products with a heat protector here. We give you in this blog four reasons why you will always use a heat shield from now on.
8. Do not spray perfume in your hair
Do you sometimes spray perfume in your hair to make it smell nice? We advise you not to do this anymore. Many fragrances contain alcohol that dries out your hair and dulls your colored locks. Spray it on your skin anyway.
9. Do you love to swim? Then rinse your hair well!
Rinse your hair well after every swim. The chlorinated water removes the natural oils and moisture from your hair, making it dry and brittle. At the end of the day, use a mask to give your hair extra nourishment.
10. Refresh your color with a toner
Is your color fading faster than you had hoped despite all these tips? Then freshen up your color with a toner. A hair toner is a semi-permanent color that you apply to the hair to neutralize unwanted hues in the hair. The added pigments and the unwanted shades in your hair cancel each other out, leaving only the desired hair color. This is a bit of a technical story, but trust us, it will make you happy!
