How to Keep Coloured Hair Vibrant for Longer

Isn’t freshly coloured hair a thing of beauty? Blonde, brunette or redhead, newly tinted locks have a vibrant sheen that just glows. Everyone compliments your new colour, and you swish your hair around feeling pretty pleased with life.

And then a few weeks later, you suddenly realise that your radiant hair colour is no more. That zingy freshness has gone, replaced by a slightly faded equivalent. Blondes especially may notice that the bright tint when they left the salon is gradually morphing into a slightly brassy, yellowish shade which is altogether less pleasing to the eye.

So, how do you get rid of brassy tones on blonde hair?

Colour is always going to grow out and fade with time. But there are sneaky little low effort things you can do to keep that elusive vibrancy for longer. Read on for the best way to tone your hair and some super handy colour maintenance tricks:

Lay off the washing. How many times a week should I wash my hair? We hear you askingEvery time you wash your hair after a colour, it fades a little more. So, it makes sense that if you can cut that down to 2 or 3 times a week, you’ll see your colour last longer. Especially bleached blondes – bleach often makes hair more porous, which means it will absorb more of the minerals from tap water, causing discolouration.

When you do wash – use the right products. Blondes, that means dedicated purple toning products. The best hair purple shampoo is Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Purple Toning Shampoo and Conditioner is violet tinted, banishing yellow tones and infusing hair with much needed post-colouring nourishment from hair loving ingredients like Chamomile and Moringa Seed Extract.  (Tip – only use violet shampoos once or twice a week to prevent colour build-up).

Embrace the cold wash. While it may make you shudder, cold water helps seal the hair cuticle and makes hair shinier. Shine is coloured hair’s best friend.

Hit up the shine Spray. Speaking of shine – keep coloured hair vibrant for longer with a shine spray.Lee Stafford award winning Head Shine Spray is a lightweight, non-greasy high shine topcoat that will give your colour a dazzling finish. Zing!

Use a Treatment Mask. Blondes, this is especially important to keep that brassiness at bay. Lee Stafford Purple Toning Treatment is formulated with violet pigment to keep your blonde bright – while also lavishing hair with nourishment to protect and reduce damage from bleaching, UV rays and heat.

Maintaining colour is about protection and care – with the right products and washing tricks, you can keep that fresh vibe right through to your next salon visit. Try our vibrant colour tricks and let us know how you go.
