To keep color from fading

My hair fades so bad. It is naturally brown and fades to an orangish color. Today I had a demi dye put on it. How do I keep it from fading? She put cones in it. I haven't had cones in about a month. Do I have to clarify b/c she used them? I bought the Olive Oil condish by designline I also bought the leave in. I just want to keep my color as long as possible.

    I've found that devacare low poo helps to keep my color. I wouldnt clarify, it will fade your color.

    I get a red demi done which is prone to fade both becuse it's demi and it's red. :)

    My colorist tells me not to get my hair wet for 48 hours afterwards because up to 50% of the color can be taken out if you use anything on your hair that soon. I'm not sure if this holds true for non-red demis, but it couldn't hurt.

    It also seems that avoiding sulfates helps.

    For me, avoiding glycerin helps, but other many other color treated (especially non-red) curlies are fine with it. Some just avoid it and oils in the first week after color.

    Do you know what 'cones' were used in your hair? That will make a difference as far as needing to poo it out.

    ITA- definately don't wash/wet for 48 hours.

    Crap, I just co washed it with the olive oil condish I got. She used dimethicone and the one that starts with an A on it.

    Just in case it was confusing anyone. I realized that I have to names b/c the first one I made wouldn't work, I got a new one, then the first one worked. I forgot and logged in under the first one. My bad!
