How to Keep Colored Hair From Fading

Video from last year!

I know I’m not a hair expert, but these are tips I’ve gathered from magazines, sites, friends that were helpful to me and I would just like to share with you guys. These are also all products I’ve used and loved so that’s why I would recommend it to you~

So here is the complete list of the items I’ve show in my youtube video and where you can purchase it!

♥Shampoo L’Oreal EverPure Moisture Shampoo Moisture (remember, I’ve stated it made my scalp dryer, so if you’re wary of this, you can skip out on this brand and check the other brands I’ve listed at the end)
♥Conditioner Fekkai Technician Color Care Conditioner
♥Hair Mask Fekkai Technician Color Care 3-Minute Mask
♥Hair Mask Lux Hair Mask that you can find at your local Japanese/Asian market
♥Anti Color Fade Top Coat Fekkai Advanced Salon Technician Color Care Anti-Fade Top Coat 
♥Color Protect Spray Paul Mitchell Color Protect Locking Spray
♥Dry Shampoo Batiste Dry Shampoo
♥Blow dryer (the one I have is from Vidal Sassoon, that’s what it says on this blow dryer too, but I’m not sure why the product name says Revlon) Ion Select Professional Hair Dryer

Also, I forgot to mention some tips in my video! So I’ll include it here!

♥ Since high heat causes hair to fade quicker, when you curl or straighten or do any of those styling to your hair (even hot blow dryer), use a heat protect spray. The one I use and love for curling my hair is Got2b Guardian Angel Heat Protect ‘N Curl Spray. It not only protects my hair, but it helps hold my curls and smells nice too > 3<“! It was on sale at Duane Reade when I bought it too, so you can also check your local drug stores if they have it on sale. 🙂 The one I use for straight hair and used to use when I blow dry (I now use the Paul Mitchell) is the Pantene Pro-V Damage defender spray. It also smells really good, like all their products~ You can also use the curlers/straighteners at a lower setting so that it won’t be as damaging.

♥ The sun’s UV ray causes hair fade too, so during the summer when the sun’s UV rays are stronger, wear a hat, or any other hat accessories that can help cover your hair. I also use a parasol XD Also, don’t forget to use your UV protect spray!

♥ Rinse your hair out thoroughly as shampoo/conditioners/masks left in you hair can cause it to dull out.

♥ Blow dry your hair with the dryer aiming from top to bottom, and comb in the same direction to minimize frizz. Like I said in the video, cool air will help lock in moisture and prevent less fading.

♥ Try not to use any volume or anti dandruff shampoos as both of them strip hair color quicker. If you have to use it, be sure to use the anti-fade mask right after to help mantain your hair color. 🙂

Other brands I’ve heard good reviews for shampoos/conditioners are;
♥ Pureology Shampoo (look for the one that’s sulfate free. This one is also more costly >”<)
♥ Moroccanoil Shampoo & Conditioner 
♥ Kirkland Signature Shampoo (it is much cheaper to purchase directly from costco!! I’ll be trying this one next, and let you guys know what I think of it. Hopefully it’s more moisturizing than the L’Oreal)
♥ Nigelle HY Milbon Salon Treatment System (I get this when I go to my salon; they put the first treatment twice in your hair, and then give you four tubes to use at home once every week.)

Hope that this was useful and works for you guys~ Wishing everyone healthy, shiny hair♥

Lots of new shoots, and a facebook page :3

Hiiiiiiii I’m alive 😛 I’ve had the post about Korin’s book signing on draft for the longest time (hopefully finishing it within these few days…) but I’ve been so busy with shoots that I got so tired to finish it XD I had 7 shoots within 11 days. You can imagine how tired I am, but I wanted to get as much photos as I can while my hair is still red hahaha. I will have a post about my hair dyeing experience/review of the salon up later as well ^_^

Since some photographers asks for more photos, I decided to create a facebook page. Please support me by visiting it and liking it if you have a facebook! http://www.facebook.com/pages/Judy-Yang/391698994199006 There you can view all shoots I have done so far, and I’m going to be adding more as the photographers send me the photos. This summer is my most productive summer yet and it just started haha~

Here are some photos from recent shoots that I haven’t shared with you guys:

le ciel. – photography franklin yeep

This was quite awhile ago, before school ended (and i cut one class that day for it, but luckily a lot of people cut that day too so the professor just cancelled class LOL). I really love how serene the whole shoot looked. You can view more photos from that shoot here.

missing you. – photography by jesse yeung

Wanted to do a boyfriend shirt shoot for the longest time. Since I don’t have a bf, i borrowed the photographer’s shirt XD But I want to redo this shoot with a white one next time, since that’s the idea I really wanted to do. However, I did like how some of the shots came out, and second time trying a more sexy look for a shoot hehe. More photos here.

ready go. – photography by jesse yeung

Took this shoot after the boyfriend shoot. Jesse’s idea was for me to be kind of like import model look (so I had a cap on for some of the shots). He just wanted to push me past my limit so that I can really try sexy shoots in the future, so I really have to thank him because now I think I can! (Especially because two “cute” shoots, I tried to do the cute thing then the photographers yelled at me saying I’m looking too sexy… so I guess I can’t do the cute thing as well anymore XD) More from this shoot here.

enchanted. – photography by Optimistic Artist

The photographer wanted a magical shoot, so the idea was like fairy like, etc It was a nice and fun shoot. You can view more photos here (more will be added soon!).

one more day. – photography by Son Le.

one more day. – photography by Son Le.

I love love love love love the photos from this shoot. I think it’s because I finally got to do three ideas I have always wanted in this shoot! The silhouette against sunset (because it reminds me of Violet’s Mascara MV where they played their instruments against the sunset), “dancing” with fabric (inspired by miss A’s touch photoshoot), and lying on tulle in grass with roses (as seen in my new banner). For more photos from this shoot, check out this album.

I also did a shoot for my lingerie portfolio, but I’ll make a separate post about it when I get more photos back from the photographer ^_^

Please support my passion~! Thank you ♥
