Color That Lasts: 5 Essential Tips to Preserve Your Salon Color


Hair color treatments can transform your look, but maintaining that vibrant color can be challenging. At Salon Blonde, we believe in providing you with the best tips and products to keep your hair looking salon-fresh for as long as possible. Here are our top five tips to preserve your hair color after a salon treatment, featuring Aveda and Back of Bottle hair products.

Tip 1: Use Color-Safe Shampoos and Conditioners

Traditional shampoos and conditioners can strip your hair of its vibrant color. Using color-safe products helps lock in the color and maintain its brightness.

Tip 2: Avoid Excessive Washing

Washing your hair too frequently can cause the color to fade faster. Try to limit washing to 2-3 times a week.
