Educate Your Clients On The Proper Way To Care For Color Treated Hair

The average cost of getting your hair colored professionally is around $83.

The average person has to get their hair color redone every four to six weeks, and so this adds up to an annual average of between $750-$1100. This cost can, of course, fluctuate based on how complicated someone's color treatments are.

This is why it is essential for you to care for color treated hair between sessions. The better you take care of your hair, the better it will take care of you, and the easier it is for both you and your stylist.

1. Care for Color Treated Hair 101: Do Not Skimp on Products

Are all hair products really made the same? The short answer? No.

Make sure you are buying products meant specifically to help to care for color-treated hair. With some colors, such as red or blonde, this can mean buying specific shampoos, and conditioners made just for your color.

And yes, buying a bottle of salon shampoo may cost you more money in the short term, but it will save your color and your locks in the long run. A barter you most certainly should think about making.

2. Cut Down Your Washes and Find a Good Dry Shampoo

One of the biggest mistakes people with color treated hair make is washing their hair too often. Think of your hair like anything else with color: a painting, a dress, maybe your favorite linens. The more you wash it, the more likely the color will start to disappear.

This is why you should be washing your hair a maximum of once every other day (any hairdresser from a professional school will tell you the same).

Yes, it maybe greasier than normal during the adjustment phase, but that is where finding a good dry shampoo comes in. It will stretch out your time between washes, and in turn, teach you how to handle color treated hair more responsibly.

3. Be Picky With the Person You Trust Your Hair With

This may seem like common sense, but a lot of people often choose a salon based on trivial facts (for example, it is close to their house, or that is where they have always gone).

You should only trust your hair with professionals who come with good recommendations, and who continue to better themselves and their salons as time goes on.

This is by far one of the most important color treated hair tips. If you do not start with a good base, you will have a struggle keeping it looking nice, because it didn't look nice, to begin with.

Be Hair-ful, and Your Locks are Sure to Stay Lovely

While taking care of your hair is something you begin to do at a very young age, a lot changes when you decide to change its look.

The care for color treated hair that you put in will make a world of difference not only to your locks but to your entire look.

Make sure to take the time to care for your hair, and it will make sure to take care of you.
