How often to wash hair that is dyed?

I was wondering if it's best to not wash my hair everyday because I colour it every month with a permanent colour. Also, even though I use hairspray everyday, is it ok to wash my hair every other day? If I don't wash my hair everyday will the colour last longer?

Re: How often to wash hair that is dyed?

Hi there! I color my hair as well. Right now I work out almost every day, so I have to shower every day and wash my hair or I smell sweaty. If you wash your hair less often, your color will hold much better. Also, if you experience dryness from your haircolor, it's best to not wash your hair every day as well. You can always rinse it in the shower, or create a diluted version of your shampoo (by mixing with water) if you need to get product out. Using hairspray and not washing it can cause a flaky mess, but if you use a flexible hold hairspray, you may be lucky and maybe it won't happen! Try doing every other day and see if that works for you .
