Color Care For Brunettes

Having dark hair, and keeping it that way, doesn’t have to be a complicated process, but with these simple tips you can preserve your hair color and keep it from fading or going dull even when conditions get rough.


Dark hair looks very dull and one-dimensional when it loses its shine, so make sure to keep it glossy and moist. Use a shampoo that is moisturizing, and a conditioner that locks in that moisture while replenishing your hair’s natural oils. Products with almond or tea tree oil are particularly good for adding shine. You can also finish your styles by spritzing with ice water or using a shine serum for serious gloss. Properly cared-for brunette hair can have an incomparable patent-leather look that will turn heads wherever you go.

As a home remedy to bring out the glow in your hair, make strong tea or espresso, let it cool slightly, and work it into your hair. Let it dry, then rinse it out, to get hair that really stands out.


Smoothness goes hand in hand with shine for hair that looks like it’s ready to go places. Brush your hair regularly to make sure it stays detangled and the oils are distributed evenly. If your hair starts to clump or fly away, it’s time to wash it or brush it. Keep your hair back when you’re not showing it off, and use a satin or silk pillowcase to minimize friction on your hair when you’re in bed, so your hair stays smooth and tangle-free.

Preventing Fading

Sunlight can bleach your brunette hair, leaving you several shades lighter. To keep this from happening, tie up your hair and wear a hat. You can also use the tea and coffee rinses described above to help restore or reinforce your color. Both of them will add a subtle dark-brown stain. Commercial hair products with henna will help set your color without adding pigment; these are great if you’re worried about your color but you don’t want to introduce any new color yet.

Stay Pure

Whenever you get a contaminant like chlorine or seawater in your hair, wash it out as quickly as you can; these substances tend to change both the color and shine of your hair over time, so you should make sure that you’re not being affected by them without your knowledge. Chlorine and sunlight is a particularly bad combination; it will cause your hair to bleach faster than you thought possible.
