limit hair washing to two or three times a week, tops. The amount of shampoo you use matters, too. “Most of the time people are still using too much shampoo, because they think they have to put more in to make it foam.” The amount of shampoo you normally use and pouring it into your fingertips instead of your palm. No need to rinse and repeat. Once should be enough to cleanse your hair without drying it out..
And always Wash your hair in cooler water especially if you color your hair with a red tone. You don’t have to shower in cold water, but when washing and rinsing your hair turn it down a little. It will help keep the cuticle closed, and prevent all that color you just put in from slipping out.
