Hair 101 : How to Keep Ash Hair Longer

December 05, 2013

I have been having ash blonde hair for quite a while. And the most common question that I got besides how to achieve the same hair color with me is, to how to keep the ash hair longer!

Ash hair is very cool to have. From dark ash blonde, dark ash brown, ash pink, ash blonde, and so on. But maintaining ashy hair is difficult. We all know that coloured hair needs special shampoo, but ash hair has even more precise shampoo to be honest. In order to maintain the ashy tone, you need to keep the color longer by using silver shampoo

Silver shampoo is the key to keep ash hair longer and it's pretty difficult to get silver shampoo in Indonesia. But right now Schwarzkopf silver shampoo available at some Indonesia Food Halls too recently, so you guys can try it too. I got my Loreal Silver Shampoo online and I havent finished this for almost A YEAR!!

this shampoo is crazy max, it lasts so long

So I am gonna use this shampoo for the demonstration on this post ^.^

For those of you who don't know what silver shampoo is

Silver shampoo is meant to keep your colored ashy tone hair stay strong and last long
Ever experience when you have colored your hair into ash / cool tone, but it fades so easily, like within a week?

It's very common to get that, especially on Asian Hair. Asian hair has red / orange shade tendency and ash hair is totally different than our tone.

Though it's a little bit funny, the name is silver shampoo but the colour is purple haha
The texture is thicker than ordinary shampoo and this Loreal one is pretty bubbly and foamy. The purple colour is there to keep the silver tint/shade on your hair. If you learn about color wheel, you will know that purple neutralize red/yellow tone, and ashy hair means you get rid of that tone!

Make sense?

This is 3 ways of what you can do with your silver shampoo = 
And anyway, this is what I am doing, I'm only sharing what I do, but you're free to use it anyway you like

1. Use it as shampoo alone

Of course shampoo is meant to be used as shampoo. By using it as everyday shampoo, it's the best way to keep your ashy tone longer. Just a little is already enough as it's pretty thick so it's enough to cover entire head. Usually I just use around 2-3ml each

2. Mix it with your own shampoo 

With ratio 1 : 2 of Silver shampoo : Normal shampoo, or depends on what you feel is good. By mixing shampoo, you can have your ashy hair shampoo to treat your ashy hair, but you can also use your additional shampoo to create better balance. Most of silver shampoo doesn't really moisturize hair while my hair is quite dry, and also I want good smell. So I often mix my Shiseido Ma Cherie Shampoo with silver shampoo

3. Use it once a week as a leave in hair treatment 

You can also just use your normal hair shampoo and just use silver shampoo like once or twice a week, just to keep the color. Some might think that silver shampoo is too expensive to be used on daily basis so this way is also very practical. Just leave it for around 10-15 minutes to let the purple get absorbed into hair

So that's all the tips of how to keep your ash hair longer
