These products are specifically formulated with ingredients to preserve your color and don’t contain ingredients that will make your color fade. Professional products are you best choice since they are designed to be much gentler and contain higher quality ingredients. Using harsh shampoos and styling products will strip the color right out of your hair! The harsh rays from the sun will also make your hair color fade or oxidize. Professional salon care products contain sun screen which will protect your hair color from the sun and the effects it has on your hair color.

If you live in an area with hard water, or water containing large amounts of iron in it you should clarify your hair at least once a week as iron in water will cause oxidation and produce an orange tint to your hair color.
