I am thrilled to have partnered with CNSway and Nexxus to have gathered the information to create this post! This is sponsored post for Nexxus through Condé Nast. All women who delve into the world of black tresses struggle with the battle of keeping their lovely locks with the black-blue hue for longer than a few weeks. Us black-haired gals have to work at looking so good! I mean if I have to take travel selfies in the bathroom, I need my locks to look fab on a moments notice!
Three Ways To Keep Your Hair Color Looking It’s Best
Use Sun Protection: When you are in the sun, WEAR A HAT! I live in Florida, so it is really important for me to keep a hat on my tresses if I want to keep the color in them for longer than a few days! You know how damaging the sun can be to your hair? When you spend all the money on the perfect color, the last thing you want to do is go bleach it in the sun! Have you ever left a sand dollar out in the sun to bleach it white? What do you think the sun is doing to your hair? The pigments in your hair must be protected from the sun’s UV light. Anytime you are outdoors for a period of time you should protect your hair with a hat or head scarf.
Use Nexxus Color Assure Program: AMAZING! Ever since I started using the Nexxus color assure program, I am so surprised with the results. It has been almost 2 months since I have colored my hair and it is still as black as ever. This includes going into the sun on more than one occasion without (GASP) wearing a hat! The Nexxus Color Assure system includes the Pre-Wash Primer, Shampoo, Conditioner, and a Glossing Tonic. The Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer is formulated to keep your color vibrant and prevent fading and is my favorite part of the system. The pre-wash primer is a pre-treatment (never would have guessed that with the name right?) and repels water/humidity (VERY important for us Florida gals). This ensures that your color stays more vibrant and fades less. My hair above is after 8 weeks of daily washing and it is as black as ever! I even had a friend stop me in the pool and ask how I could keep my hair blue-black and go in the sun! I also use the pre-wash primer from Nexxus before I go in the pool. I believe the special blend of almond, argan and coconut oils combined with the white orchid extract improves not only my color fastedness, but he softness, breakage and elasticity as well.
Use a flat iron to bring out the shine: You can visibly increase the shine of dyed black hair by using a flat iron I use the Color Assure Glossing Tonic when I flat iron my hair and wooweee I look good! 🙂
Do you color your hair? If so, you simply need to try the new Nexxus Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer as part of the Color Assure System to keep for 2x* longer color protection and vibrancy.
