    Default Women's Day Article Air Drying Fades Color

    It was an article in Women's Day mag, 50 tips to beautiful hair. Some suggestions seemed to come right off this site. But airdrying fades hair color?

    I think everything fades hair color over time.

    I have never heard that before and I'm not sure I believe it. Depending on what colour and brand you use time and water will fade your colour.
    In my experience.

    Too bad it wasn't an online article, I'd like to have read it.

    Do they mean artificial colour or your own natural hair colour?

    Well, good. I'm always trying to find new ways to fade my hair color, and it's nice to know I was already doing it. Anyway, I want to see this article. If it's anything like that Marie Claire article that LittleOrca posted (the one that said nubbie brushes were good, and not shampooing is gross) it ought to be good for a chuckle.

    Hm. If air-drying really fades color enough to be noticeable, then I wouldn't have any pigment left.

    I wonder if blow-frying, then, would save your color.

    Vinegar rinses fade my color faster than if I don't use it, but I still do it.
    The benefit outweighs the risk (if you could call it that) for me.
    I imagine the same can be said about the air drying thing, if that was the case.

    I don't believe it. If air drying faded hair color, I wouldn't have any color left at all after 30 years of nothing BUT air drying!
