How to maintain pastel pink hair

Pastel hair is so gorgeous, and pastel pink is definitely one of my favourite colours to have my hair. However, pink and warmer colours wash out the fastest, so pastel pink can be a pain in terms of fading out quickly. Here are my tips on how I kept my hair from fading.

Pick the right shampoo and conditioner// Tresemmé is my go-to because it's cheap, smells amazing and gets the job done. But basically, you want something formulated for damaged hair and colour protection. Non sulphate shampoo is also meant to fade your hair less.

Mix pink hair dye into your everyday white conditioner, or hair mask// so you can top up your colour along with your normal hair care routine. This tip is from Helen Anderson (my original pastel hair inspo) (if your hair is bleached, you should probably be doing a hair mask once a week-ish anyway so it's the perfect time to top your colour up.)

Wash your hair in cooler water// this stops the colour from fading as much.

Use a stronger or longer lasting hair dye// Some hair dyes like Bleach London's Rosé fade in 2-10 washes, whereas others like Directions' Carnation Pink will cling on to your hair forever. Ditto if you use blue or cold colours, those will cling on a lot longer. You could even go for a diluted version of Schwarzkopf's Live colour XXL, which I've heard lasts a long time. I've never used their pinks, but the red I had certainly lasted for ever even though I'm pretty sure it was semi permanent.

Dye it slightly darker than you want// so it will fade to the colour you want, and you can make it last a little longer in between touch ups.

Do you guys have any tips for keeping pastel hair? I'd love to know if you do!
