5 Tips To Make Your Hair Colour Last Longer

10th February 2021 | Written by


We all love that ‘just been to the salon’ feeling, especially with a fresh hair colour. We know you wish you could have that fresh feeling every day, and there are ways you can. Here are our top tips for making your hair colour last longer than ever before.

Wash Your Hair Less Frequently

Stretching out the time in between shampoos can maximise the longevity of your colour - as every wash will cause your colour to fade.

Limit your washes to 1-3 times per week to ensure your salon fresh colour lasts as long as possible.

Our secret to keeping your hair looking fab in between washes is by using ‘Kevin Murphy Fresh Hair and Young Again Dry Conditioner’ to help your hair look its best from root to tip!

Use A Toning Shampoo & Treatment

Adding a purple shampoo or treatment to your hair care regime will neutralise brassy orange/yellow tones in your hair and can be used on both blondes and brunettes.

Product to try: Kevin Murphy Blonde Angel Wash or Blonde Angel Treatment

Avoid Hot Water

Washing your hair with hot water will open the cuticle layer of your hair, allowing the colour to escape.

Try using cool to lukewarm water to seal the cuticle shut and help lock in your fresh colour. As an added bonus, the cooler water will add extra shine to your hair.

Refresh With A Gloss

Visit the salon in-between your regular colour appointment for an express toner or gloss service to blend away regrowth, eliminate brass or add shine.

It is a sure-fire way to keep your colour looking its best for a few more weeks.

While you are at the salon,  indulge in an in-salon treatment from the ‘Kevin Murphy Treat Me’ range to keep your hair in optimum condition!

Avoid Chlorine & Sun

Protecting your hair from sun, salt water and chlorine is imperative if you want to prevent your colour from fading.

If you can’t avoid them, we suggest using a detoxifying shampoo such as ‘Kevin Murphy Maxi Wash’ after you swim to remove mineral build-up which can cause an unsightly green tinge. Protect your hair from the sun’s rays with ‘Kevin Murphy Heated Defence’.
