We’ve said it time & again, cold water is great for the cuticles in your hair. One should take a cold shower to help your temporary hair color last longer. The cold water, especially before shampooing, will keep your hair’s cuticles closed and later give a smooth finish to your Temporary Hair Color.
Apply on clean, dry hair
Make sure that your hair is dry before you start the application of temporary colors for a fuller and more vibrant look. However, if going for a mild tone or tint finish with one or more colors, try combing out the excess product as soon as you apply it.
Don’t go Sun Kissing
Similar to warm showers or heat styling, harsh sunlight will also open your hair’s cuticles and allow the temporary hair colour to escape.
Excessive heat should be avoided
Heat styling tools like straighteners, crimpers, and curlers, which are all used to help create gorgeous daily hairstyles, can diminish the vibrancy of the color to some extent. Instead of these, there are many heatless options you can try to achieve the same look.
