Help! What can I do to preserve my hair color? It is already starting to fade!
Two things you can do before you color your hair that will make a big difference in terms of how long your color will last. First, apply a deep conditioner to your hair three days before you have your color applied. Your hair needs to be moisturized to help the color absorb evenly. The better conditioned your hair is, the more the color will take to your hair.

The second thing that will help the life of your hair color before you go to the salon is to not wash your hair. Do not wash your hair for at least 24 hours, 48 hours is even better, before your appointment. The natural oils produced by your scalp help the color adhere and penetrate more deeply into the hair shaft.
