How do I take care of my natural hair after dying it?
Avoid washing too regularly (most find once a week to be enough), but be sure to moisturize every day. Put some oil in your hands and apply from tip to root. Alternatively use a leave-in conditioning spray with some added argon or jojoba oil. Dyed hair tends to be fragile compared to untouched locks.

Can I wash my hair with just water after coloring?
Leo Izquierdo, a colorist at New York’s IGK Salon, agrees, adding that hot water will lift the outer layer of hair color and cause the color to fade. “Instead, rinse with cold or lukewarm water, as it will help seal up the cuticle and lock in your fresh color,” says Cleveland.
Do you shampoo after dying hair?
Shampooing the day after you dye your hair. “After having your hair colored, wait a full 72 hours before shampooing,” says Eva Scrivo, a hairstylist in New York City. “It takes up to three days for the cuticle layer to fully close, which traps the color molecule, allowing for longer lasting hair color.”
Can I rinse my hair with cold water after dying it?
Avoid washing and rinsing your hair in hot water. Hot water causes the hair cuticle to open, allowing color molecules to escape, while cold water helps close and seal the cuticles. Our Tallahassee hair salon recommends that you always shampoo and condition your color-treated hair in cool water.
Is it okay to use conditioner after dying hair?
Condition your hair right after dyeing. Usually some sort of conditioner is included with the dye product that is to be applied. If there is not, condition your entire head using your usual conditioner, leave in for at least three minutes, then rinse out with cool water. This gives your hair time to recover.
What happens if I wash my hair after dying it?

Can I put coconut oil on my hair after dying it?
Using coconut oil on your hair after you’ ve dyed it is perfectly safe. It will not reduce the color, as long as you follow the proper precautions. For instance, if you intend to rinse your hair before you use coconut oil on it, you’ll want to make sure you do so in cold to cool water to avoid fading.
Why does my hair feel like straw after coloring?
Commercial hair dyes use ammonia to lift the layers of the cuticle so the color gets in. This leaves an open gap on the hair shaft. The peroxide (or bleach) in the dye removes your natural color, and this is what leaves your hair feeling like straw.
Why is my hair fading after a week?
A common reason behind fast-fading hair color is insufficient processing time, meaning the hair color did not stay on long enough. This especially holds true if you or your client have grey hair. Grey hair cuticles are tightly packed down and take longer to open and absorb artificial hair color molecules.
What do you put on dry colored hair?
Olive oil, in particular, is said to help soften the hair and replenish much needed moisture. It’s also easy to work with and relatively inexpensive. Just be sure to wait a few days post-coloring before you do an olive oil treatment. Use color-safe shampoo and conditioner.
