Skip A Few Washes Newsflash: the less you wash your hair, the longer your color will last. (Duh, right?) If you haven't quite figured out how to pull this off without your hair looking like a limp, greasy mop by day two, we have two words for you: dry shampoo. ColorProof Dry Spell Color Protect Dry Shampoo, $26, is a sulfate-free dry shampoo made up of starchy corn, rice and clay particles that absorb oil while also protecting color from UVA/UVB rays that speed up the fading process.
We also love the new Vidal Sassoon ColorFinity Dry Shampoo, $3.99, which comes in two options tailored for dark and blonde color-treated hair. It uses tapioca starch to soak up excess oil, but sprayed so lightly onto my dark brown roots, there was no sign of the dreaded white residue.
