A cold shower rarely sounds appealing. But there is a good reason to use cold water, especially for those with color-treated hair. It may sound silly, but there is science behind it. Hot water lifts the outer cuticle layer, which is one of the most common reasons that color fades. The hotter the water, the quicker the color loss. By rinsing with hot water, you’re actually speeding up the fading process.
Cooler water keeps the cuticle closed and helps preserve the color for longer periods. At Salon Twenty-Two and Spa we encourage our clients to rinse with cool water to help keep the vibrancy of the color. It may also extend the length of time in between visits.
Our goal is to give you the color of your dreams and have it look great until your next scheduled visit. Other ways to keep your color beautiful is by washing hair less frequently and when you do wash, use professional products for color-treated hair. We appreciate the time and money you invest in your hair and we want you to be happy with it every time they look into the mirror. Follow these suggestions - your hair will thank you!
