Dyed Hair Tips And Tricks.

I've dyed my hair pink. I've actually gone out and done it. It's something I've been putting off for a while, I've been dying my hair blonde for a good couple of years now. But I've been reluctant to actually take the plunge to dye my hair fully pink. But now I've done it I didn't realise how high maintenance looking after brightly dyed hair actually is, so I've compelled a list of all the tips and tricks I've learnt along the way to hopefully be useful for anybody thinking of doing the same.

Wash Your Hair With Cold Water Instead Of Hot.

I know this sounds like a crazy one, and don't get me wrong I don't particularly enjoy the cold showering but, not only does it wake you up if you are showering in the morning, it also helps to lock in your colour. Hot water often makes the hair colour fade quicker and therefore turns the pink into a more peachy shade. 

Use Less Heat Styling Tools Where Possible. 

This isn't something a lot of us can just cut out completely, I for one love having my hair curled.  But what I am saying here is try and use them less. Especially on a day to day basis try not to straighten it all the time. Another tip I have learnt is to blowdry your hair on the cold setting, it may take slightly longer to dry although it helps reduce the colour fading. 

Make Your Hair Last Longer Between Washes. 

Learn to braid your hair. Trust me, it's a lifesaver at helping your hair last that couple more days between hair wash time. I mean who exactly likes actually washing your hair. I used to wash my hair every other day but now I've managed to get it down to only washing every four days!

Hair Masks Are Incredibly Important. 

Dying and bleaching your hair can take a lot out of it. It needs to recover and hair masks are the way to go. I have a few firm favourites that I love using with the likes of Garnier Ultimate Blends Hair Food range, I personally all five that Garnier does as they all have worked wonders on my hair.  I also, sometimes even simple coconut oil is super good for your hair and helping it retain moisture. 

Use Coloured Specific Shampoos and Conditioners.

On every other hair wash it's important to use a shampoo that will also help to maintain your colour. For me, I use the Bleach London Rose Shampoo and Conditioner as it helps revitalise the pink tones in my hair and makes them look as fresh as they did when my hair was just dyed. It has a little bit of dye within the products that helps keep the look without damaging the hair. 

If you've dyed your hair before is there any good tips and tricks you have learnt along the way? I hope this blogpost is helpful and provides a good source of information!
