Amika Color Collection
One of the most upsetting downfalls of dyeing your hair is the fade out. Especially for those of us who LOVE color, so the fade our is pretty obvious. Color never seems to look as good as it did after we start washing our hair and the color out. So how do you maintain color for as long as possible?! Here at Hello Beautiful Salon, Best Beauty Salon Fort Lauderdale, we highly recommend the Amika Color Collection! The Amika color collection comes with a variety of products that provide UV filters and antioxidants to ensure your color stays vibrant and sealed, all with no sulfates.
