Tip #1: Avoid Salt & Sulfate ShampoosClients are always looking for color safe products but sadly many products that say they are color safe contain harsh salt and sulfates, two ingredients that strip color right out of the hair. When especially dealing with red color, always use a shampoo that is salt and sulfate (Sodium Lauryl) free. Try O2 Juá Extract Shampoo which uses the natural healing and cleansing properties of Brazilian Juá extract for a rich lather without salt, sulfates, or parabens. Get it Here.
Tip #2: Protect You Hair From The SunUV rays from sunlight fades red pigment in your hair fast, even in the Fall and Winter months because the sun's UV rays are the same year-round. The best protection from fast fading red is a leave-in conditioner with UV protection. Using a leave-in like O2 Vita-Cell Thermal Protector will seal the color in your hair and protect it from fading. O2 Vita-Call Thermal Protector provides protection from UV rays and heat for 15 washes. Get it Here.
Tip #3: Protect Your Hair From HeatWhile we're on the subject of thermal protection, heat styling actually causes chemical reactions in your hair that fades the color. Before blow-drying or heat styling your hair, always ALWAYS use a thermal protecting leave-in like the O2 Vita-Cell Thermal Protector which also provides UV protection for up to 15 shampoos.
