Ombre hair is still a hot trend, but since it involves bleaching and dyeing, the process can be damaging to your hair. So, it’s important to care of ombre hair the right way. Here are three tips to making sure your ombre hair style lasts:
1. Get products made specifically for color-treated hair.
There is a wide range of sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners formulated for dyed hair. They are gentler and more nourishing than regular hair products, which can strip your hair of essential oils and leave it dry and brittle.
2. Deep condition once a week.
A leave-in conditioner will give your ombre hair the tender loving care it needs. Deep conditioning puts much-needed moisture back into your hair, keeping soft, shiny, and strong.
3. Make heat protecting spray your best friend.
Whether you’re just blow-drying or you use a curling or straight iron, mist a heat protecting spray on first. It acts as a shield against further drying out hair and strengthens strands so that your ombre hair will last longer.
