Taking Care of Forest Green Hair
Green hair color needs a little TLC to look its best.
Just like any colored hair, it needs a special shampoo that doesn’t strip off the color easily and makes sure your hair stays hydrated.
Top tips for keeping your forest green hair looking its best:
- as mentioned earlier, quality shampoo and conditioner specially designed for colored hair is a must
- keep your hair hydrated and prevent it from drying out by using a hydrating hair mask once or twice a week
- a regular visit to a hair stylist to trim any split ends is a must – it will keep your hair looking much healthier and in better condition
- avoid any heat on your hair if possible – it will dry it out even more. If you need to use any hair iron or similar tools, apply heat protection spray before you
- avoid staying in the sun for extended periods of time – wear a hat where possible
