How to Keep Your Hair Colour Vibrant for Longer

Earth Witch hair colours are already super long lasting, boasting a staying power of up to 35 washes! If you want to get even more life from your colour there are a few tips and tricks you can use to help keep your colour looking it's most magical!

Here are 7 tips to help keep your hair colour vivid and fresh for longer.

1. Use a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner. The first step in keeping your hair colour looking vibrant is to use the right products. Look for shampoos and conditioners that are specifically designed for colour-treated hair. These products will contain ingredients that can help protect your colour and extend its longevity. Avoid any harsh clarifying shampoos and any that contain sulfates.

2. Avoid over-washing! This is a big one and can be tricky for some people if you're used to washing your hair a lot. Washing your hair too frequently can strip away colour, so it's best to limit washing to 2-3 times a week. If you can cut it back to once a week and use dry shampoo to get you through, even better. When you do wash, use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo that won't cause any unnecessary fading.

3. Protect your hair from the suns harsh UV rays. The sun can strip hair colour just like it can bleach books and images in your home, so be sure to protect your hair when you're spending time outdoors. A wide-brimmed hat or a scarf will do the trick, or even a hair sunscreen for added protection.

4. Use a weekly deep conditioning treatment. A deep conditioning treatment can add moisture to your hair, making it look healthier and shinier. This can also help the color last longer. You can even add your favourite Earth Witch shade straight into your conditioner to boost your colour each time you wash!

5. Be careful with heat styling. Heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can cause color to fade, so it's important to be careful. Use a heat protectant spray and keep the heat setting on the low side to minimize damage.

6. Avoid chlorine and salt water. Both chlorine and salt water can cause colour to fade, so if you plan on swimming in a pool or at the beach, consider wearing a swim cap to protect your hair.

7. Wash with cold water. This one isn't for the faint of heart, especially in the winter! Washing your hair with cold water is highly recommended by vivid hair stylists and rainbow hair lovers to keep the longevity of your colour. Hot water opens the hair cuticle wider which can strip your hair colour a lot faster than cold water would.


    By following these tips, you can help your hair colour last longer and keep it looking vibrant and fresh. Whether you're a new hair colour convert or a seasoned pro, these tips will help you get the most out of your colour and keep it looking its best.


    Keeping your hair colour vivid for longer requires a bit of care and attention, but it's well worth it for the beautiful, long-lasting results!
