if you color your hair and want to prevent color fade, using the appropriate products are essential. L'Oreal's line, EverPure, has a full product line that helps prevent haircolor from looking dull and lifeless after a few weeks, and their UV Protect Spray is one i think you'll want to try.
this spray can be used on hair that is wet or dry, and leaves hair protected from the harsh rays of the sun (love that) while also leaving it more conditioned (multitasker!). i love the smell-- rosemary mint-- and the way my hair looks after using it. it's not heavy and doesn't leave a weird feeling behind. what i did expect more of was shininess, but it didn't deliver quite as well. the good news is, my hair is left looking healthy and feeling soft. :)
so, while i haven't dyed my hair since last year, i'm happy to protect my hair with this anyway. it's a great product, and who knows, i may start coloring it again...
