Follow these tips to make your dyed black hair shine

Tip 1: The most challenging part of caring for dyed black hair is managing the new hair growth. The lighter the natural hair color, the more visible the new hair growth will be. If your natural hair color is brown, then intensive tinting is a good solution. The pigments are washed out before the new hair growth becomes noticeable.


Tip 2: If you have used permanent black hair dye then the new growth must be colored every three or four weeks. Root coloring sets are very practical for this purpose. The sets come with a brush and exact instructions for touching up the new growth. You only need to color the areas around hair parts, visible hairlines, and the temples. Consider a dye like Keratin Color Midnight Black 1.1 for a bold look that is both striking and easy to achieve.


Tip 3: Healthy hair requires protecting the color pigments from UV light, which would otherwise bleach the pigments and reduce the color intensity. If you are outdoors for longer periods of time you should protect your hair with UV protective hair spray even during the winter months. Another great care tip for dyed hair is while on summer vacation, you should pull out all the stops in terms of UV protection by wearing a hat or head scarf on the beach.


Tip 4: Every time you wash your dyed black hair, you need to use special shampoos and rinses for color treated hair. Weekly intensive treatments help to keep the hair cuticles intact and the pigments inside the hair, resulting in longer lasting healthy dyed black hair.


Tip 5: You can visibly increase the shine of dyed black hair by using a flat iron (be sure to apply heat protective spray first). Our tip for a big entrance is to make your shiny black hair as smooth as possible and wear it in a flowing open style. Your hair will look stunning, we promise!


Tip 6: In order to create the most shine for your black hair, cover the tips of your index and middle fingers with a droplet of silicone-based hair end serum and apply the serum to parts of your hair that can be seen. The serum creates sensationally shiny hair, without weighing it down. You could also consider short black hairstyles if you feel like having a different look that is easier to maintain.
