It is about that time to bring on the color. Coloring your hair that is. When the sun raises in the sky and the heat keeps getting warmer and warmer, all we want to do is be in it. The sun is a beautiful and healthy element to be a part of. It makes our bodies and our minds happier. When getting your hair colored or highlighted, whatever you decide to do to it, remember that harsh elements can have major effects on hair color. The first thing to remember is to wait at least 3 days before you wash your hair; or longer if you can. This way the color has time to "seep" in. Color safe shampoo and conditioner will also help to keep your color in longer. A misconception about Sulfate-Free shampoo is that there are Sulfate in a Sulfate-Free shampoo.
