To find out how to make your color last longer,


How can women maintain their color longer? Any tips or tricks to postpone the next expensive salon appointment?

Hair that has been color treated always requires special attention. Well-conditioned hair is essential for vibrant color but that alone won’t keep your hair from fading. The best way to maintain color longer is by using a color-preserving shampoo/conditioner with water protection. Many people think UV rays are mainly responsible for fading hair color, but water is the real culprit. Water penetrates the hair shaft causing it to expand. As a result, the hair cuticle is lifted slightly, making it easier for dye molecules to escape. Water can also cause dye molecules to break into smaller pieces, making them even easier to escape the shaft. The next time you’re in the shower, try using the new Nexxus Dualiste line to keep your hair both vibrant and beautiful. One side of the dual chamber is optimized for color protection, the other side for added moisture, anti-breakage or volume. It delivers 40% better color protection…you will be amazed with the results!
