3 Ways To Make Your Hair Colour Last Longer

Right now, you probably don’t want your hair color to last as long seeing as you’re most likely stuck at home with your African parents.

Which is kind of a good and bad thing at the same time.

But for those of us that would like to extend our one use for at least a week (because you obviously want your money’s worth- duh!), here’s how to make your temporary hair color last longer- 

Step One: Less Product

Yes. You read correctly.

To make your hair color last the longest you need to cut down on the number of products you use with it. I’ll give you a breakdown-

  • If you use too much clear gel under your curlfit color gel, it’ll flake. Because that’s basically putting two layers of gel over each other and when you do that, flaking is bound to happen. Even with clear gels.
  • If you use too much oil to seal in your gel- it’ll transfer. Look at it this way, your color gel already contains so many amazing hair foods in the form of Avocado and Olive oil. Why would you want to interfere with its already tested properties by using more oil?

The point is- the less product you use with your curlfit gel, the better.

Step Two: Protective style

Make sure you put your hair up in a ponytail before you sleep, this helps to make sure that your hair color is protected, incase you’re like some people that like to party in their sleep😬

Step Three: Protect

There’s always that one person in every Nigerian household that has a scarf (ie moms). Meaning there’s really no excuse to skip this step👀

The final step in your hair color protection journey is to sleep with a scarf or a durag. This helps to prevent any colour transfer while you sleep plus it also helps to keep your hairstyle in place.
