  1. Stay Away From Hot Showers

Hot showers not only affect your skin by stripping off its natural oils, but they can be equally dreadful for your hair too. High temperature tends to open the cuticle releasing moisture and of course the precious hair highlights. A good practice is to rise the hair in room temperature and then condition them using the coldest water. This keeps the hair hydrated, eliminates split ends and ensures long-lasting highlights.

  1. Avoid Overusing Hot Tools

Don't look at those hot tools during the first week after highlighting your hair, as these dramatically speed up color fading. While there are times, when tools such as straighteners or blow dryers become an absolute essentiality, but do make sure that you strictly stay away from them in the first week of going for sun kissed highlights in San Diego.

  1. Wait For The Desired Time To Wash Your Hair

Make sure that you never wash your hair too much, especially if those strands are newly colored. Professionals often recommend not washing hair within 48 to 72 hours, depending on how long you are able to go. When you need to wash the hair then always opt for a sulphate-free shampoo that does not dry out your hair.

  1. Use A Shower Filter

Having a shower filter removes minerals, chlorine and other chemicals that might come in contact with your hair. It should be noted, that the hard water strips out color and the use of a filter minimizes this, allowing you to cherish sun kissed highlights in Poway for a longer time.

  1. Don't Go For Deep Conditioning Frequently

Though deep conditioning is a good idea before highlighting your hair, but they can fade those rich colors if done after. The mask or conditioner, would penetrate into the hair follicle and when rinsed, the color molecules come out and this accelerates fading. For avoiding this, lightweight everyday conditioner can turn out to be the best option.

So, next time when you get those spectacular sun kissed highlights in Rancho Bernardo never forget to follow the aforementioned tips to make them last for a longer period of time.
