30 steps to prepare your locks for better results:

  1. Before highlighting or coloring, keep your hair healthy. This means you should not use any chemical on your hair for atleast 4 weeks prior to coloring.
  2. Stay away from hairsprays, serums and gels until you get your locks colored.
  3. Improve your diet. Abstain from the junk food as much as possible. Go for the nourishing food that is loaded with vitamins A and C.
  4. Incorporate spinach, broccoli, almonds, nuts and fish in your meals to boost the sebum of your hair. This will keep your locks healthy and shiny even after coloring.
  5. Give your hair a proper cut so that they are clean and manageable well in advance before coloring. But if you need a new haircut or style then wait until you have colored them.
  6. Take care of the spilt ends by trimming them. Ideally, you should be trimming your hair every 2 months. But it is mandatory to get them trimmed before coloring.
  7. Wash your hair one day in advance to your coloring. Your hair will be prepared to absorb the color in better way.
  8. Even if you are planning for highlights, clean your hair a day before.
  9. Try a patch test. If you are allergic to the color, you will know it with the patch test.
  10. Wear gloves when you are coloring your hair. You will not want to stain your hands.
  11. Cover yourself and other things around you while coloring to protect them from accidental spills or drips.
  12. The color should stay on your hair only for the time needed. Leaving it for longer can damage your hair and make them excessively dry.
  13. After you color your hair it becomes more vulnerable to dryness. Over-washing will strip the natural oils of your hair and dry them out. Wash your hair only twice a week to prevent dryness and breakage.
  14. Avoid sulfate based shampoo and conditioner as they strip the moisture and the color from your hair.
  15. You will get color protecting shampoos. Grab them as they will help the color molecules set in the hair.
  16. Good moisturizer will help the hair to maintain the moisture and make the color appear rich and vibrant. Leave the moisturizer in your hair for 3-5 minutes.
  17. A deep conditioning regime will nourish your hair and protect the color from fading. Use natural oils like coconut, almond or olive to maintain the health and shine of the hair.
  18. Leave the oil in your hair for a day or overnight so that the scalp absorbs its richness.
  19. Use hot-towel on your hair. This helps the scalp absorb the oil in a better way.
  20. Say no to the styling tools like hot iron or blow dryers. They definitely make your beauty routines easier but will make your ombre look dull and unhealthy.
  21. Using a hair mask will boost volume and give shine to your hair. Use the mask at least once a week.
  22. Apply leave in conditioner. It will keep the hair hydrated and appear the color rich.
  23. Using hair masks and conditioner will make your hair manageable. They will protect it from the harmful UV rays.
  24. Add keratins in your hair care routine. They are known to extend the life of your color and keep them shiny and healthy.
  25. Colored hair is sensitive to sun and over exposure to it can be harmful. Spray in some SPF to protect your precious colored locks. Cover them with a hat or silk scarf to keep the ombre.
  26. You must be sensible enough to know the effects of chlorine. Avoid swimming pools and if not wear a cap as the chlorine can alter the actual color.
  27. Cold rinse can make that pretty color last. While you can enjoy your hot showers make sure you go for the regular or cold water for your hair.
  28. Once you are done washing, allow your hair to dry naturally. If you are using a towel to dry them, do not rub them harshly. Friction can lead to broken hair that gives you split ends.
  29. Treat your hair with care. Invest in good quality hair brush. Go for elastic bands or hair accessories that wouldn’t snag your hair.
  30. Use silk or stain pillowcases to cut down friction while tossing and turning in your sleep.

Once you get your locks colored does not mean that your job’s done. You will have to care for them. Color makes the hair vulnerable to dryness. This makes them brittle and they begin to break. If you don’t want your hair to look like hay you will have to nourish it. Prepare your hair for coloring and post coloring care for them to enjoy that color.
