How Do You Keep Pink Hair From Fading? Choosing the Best Shampoo for Pink Hair


Bored with the natural color of your hair and want to revolutionize your look with something out of the box? Turn your hair pink. Flaunting your hair with unconventionally popping hues like pink is the new trend in the hairstyling industry. Pastel shades of hair dyes have made a successful entry into the mainstream styling industry, and it is indeed one of the “approved” and best ways to play around with your hair.

Flaunt Your Pink Hair!

Leaving the salon with beautiful, radiant pink hair can make anybody feel fabulous. You would think that dying is the hardest part, but actually maintaining pink hair is. But worry not, my fabulous friends, keep reading to find out how you can keep your hair healthy and retain the pretty pink hue!

Keeping Hair Healthy after Bleaching and Dying

Dying your hair isn't good for it, no matter how much it can transform your appearance. A color job will cause some harm to your hair, no matter how healthy it is or how carefully you care for it. However, if you're willing to take a few actions to improve the health of your dyed hair, you can significantly reduce the damage. It will take a little longer, but your hair will reward you.

The biggest issue with light pink hair is that it has to be bleached first. Breakage, frizz, and dryness are just a few of the potential side effects of bleaching your hair

The hair cuticle — the layer that keeps in moisture — has been damaged, which is why bleached hair looks "fried" or frizzy. This is why it is very important to use the right products to seal your hair and help restore gloss and shine while your hair cuticle heals.

Pink hair requires a lot of conditioning! Allow the oils, butters, conditioning polymers, and other moisturizing ingredients found in a good conditioner to help establish a protective barrier around your damaged hair. Double down on that hydration by using both normal conditioner and leave-in conditioner.

Simply applying a hair mask for 5-10 minutes twice a week can offer a tremendous dose of therapeutic nourishment that helps to repair damage, boost shine, and, of course, keep that hair color going stronger for longer. 

In the weeks following a bleach, reduce the number of times (if any) you blow-dry, curl, or straighten your hair with hot tools. Even when you feel you're ready to resume heat styling, do it only once or twice a week at most.

Retaining the Pretty Pink Color

After coloring your hair, wait at least 24 hours, preferably 48 hours, before shampooing your hair. It's as basic as that: the more you wash, the faster your hair color will fade. So save some time in your daily routine by skipping the frequent washing. The best approach to care for your hair color is to wash your hair just twice or thrice a week.

If, however, after years of doing daily washing, you're having problems weaning yourself off of it, at the absolute least give your hair a “low shampoo” treatment by skipping the shampoo, at least every now and then, and going directly to the conditioner. You'll achieve softness, gloss, and nourishing sustenance without removing the rosy hue.

So your hair care routine should be focused on choosing an ideally well-suited shampoo and conditioner to give your color-treated hair all the care and pampering it deserves.
