    Care of hair color has a lot in common with caring for curls. Avoiding sulfate shampoos helps preserve color. Moisturizing conditioners help offset the dryness hair color can cause. You may want to use conditioners that are specifically for color treated hair. Wearing a hat and avoiding a lot of exposure of your hair to sun helps to prevent fading too.

    Good luck!
