So... you bit the bullet and *finally* got your hair colored. Hurray! Now comes the hard part—taking care of it and maintaining its vibrant hue. How you treat your strands plays a big role in its longevity and health. Ahead, we've listed down the products you need in your stash if you've just had a ~major~ dye job.
If you have bleached blonde hair, using a purple shampoo is important! It won't turn your tresses lavender (although that would be nice), but it will help in maintaining its icy hue and avoiding brassiness.

To get your hair to its vibrant color, it had to be bleached once or maybe even several times. This process can be really drying on the strands, so treat your locks with a hair mask every week to keep them soft and in tip-top shape.

Now that you've got colored hair, you need to be more label-conscious. Stay away from sulfate, a chemical compound that causes the dye to fade quickly. Always read your shampoo's and conditioner's ingredient list to see if they are sulfate-free.
