We all know the pain of getting an amazing dye job, only to be severely disappointed to find its staying power is less than impressive. So, we’re here to tell you 4 of our favorite tricks for making your dye jobs last freakishly long — even when you’re battling chlorine and UV rays this summer!
Read on to see some serious hair dye tips, then make sure to check out how you couldWIN a Style Edit prize pack FULL of all of the hair care products you need to make your dye job last all spring and summer long!
1. Skip Shampoo Or Two…
We all love that feeling of freshly washed hair. And while shampoo is great for removing oil and product build-up from your hair, it also means that each time you shampoo you’ll chip away at the gorgeous color you’ve added. Try to limit shampooing to prevent fading. If you really hate missing shampoo days, try picking up a good dry shampoo like the one above from Style Edit!
The unique micro-powder featured in Style Edit’s Invisible Dry Shampoo is truly invisible, meaning no powdery residue on the scalp or hair. Because water isn’t needed to cleanse the hair, Style Edit Invisible Dry Shampoo lengthens the time between shampooing, styling, and coloring. Style Edit’s Invisible Dry Shampoo is the perfect way to make any amazing hairstyle last longer!
2. Avoid Heated Tools.
Hot tools such as blow dryers and straighteners can easily speed up the process of your color fading. While these tools are sometimes necessary, it is best to stay away from them the first week or so after you color your hair. Try a braid or other fun styles once you get your hair colored. After all, spring and summer are the seasons for trying braided beachy waves instead of your perfect curling iron barrel curls.
3. Try A Hair Sunscreen!
We are all used to applying sunscreen to our skin before stepping outside on these beautiful spring and summer days, but what about our hair? We take great pride in our luscious locks and when warm weather hits we’ll need to start protecting our dyed locks from unwanted UV damage. If you dye your hair you might want to try finding a good hair sunscreen once you dye your hair. By not using any UV protection on your hair you’re putting your locks at risk for faded color, dehydration, split ends, and premature hair aging, no thanks!!
Root Touch Up Shades Available: Medium/Light Brown, Black/Dark Brown, Lightest Brown/Medium Blonde

4. Try The Ol’ Root Touch Up Trick!
We know, sometimes roots are totally inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to run to the salon right away to cover them up! Style Edit has come out with TWO revolutionary root touch ups that will change the way you think about your roots forever. Both are binding powders that work to give you precise root coverage. The Root Touch Up serves to cover grays while the Blond Perfection works to cover pesky dark roots.

Each root touch up works instantly without flyaways or dusting. They will lock your color into place in just one swipe with multi-chromatic pigments for self-adjusting color that matches your signature hue and blends visible unwanted roots. The best part?
