How To Keep Brown Hair From Fading

Hair Color How-Tos: Keeping Browns Beautiful

All this week I'm giving tips on how to keep hair color looking full of life. I've got you covered already, redheads, and brunettes, you're up next. Whether you're a light toffee shade or a bold espresso, brunettes have lots of options. Besides the obvious color-keeping strategies of using a color-safe shampoo like Matrix Biolage Color Care Shampoo ($17) and Matrix Biolage Color Care Conditioner ($16), wash the hair less often, and rinse with cooler water to help lock in the color molecules.

Never heard of the coffee treatment before. Sounds pretty interesting. I might give it a whirl this weekend, if my caffiene addict mother doesn't drink the cups as I pour them out!

I had caramel and honey higlights put on my dark brown hair. The colour started getting too "blonde" and brassy - so I used the John Freida glaze....big mistake - that product is a waste of money - it just left my hair feeling rough - and it didn't add any colour at all....

I use the Aveda Blue Malva for my brown tones. It's wonderful! My stylist told me not to use any colour depositing shampoos or glazes though since I have some blonde colour in there too. The John Frieda Brilliant Brunette shampoos/conditioners are pretty good too.
