5 Tips for Longer Lasting Color
Dianne shares her quick and easy tips for keeping creative color shades vibrant, longer.

1. Have your client wait 2 to 3 days after a color service before washing their hair.

2. After each shampoo and condition, hit the hair with a burst of cold water to help seal in the color. 

3. Be sure to use a leave-in conditioner at  all times, Dianne’s favorite is Soya Want it All 22 in  1 by Sexy Hair.

4. When drying hair use cold air toward the end to bring out shine. Dianne likes to use Sexy Hair 450 Degrees Blow Out while drying the hair

5. Lastly, use a deep conditioning treatment once a week or every two weeks for color longevity.
