Canale shares tips on how to get and keep the color you want.  Three of the most important tips Michael gives you are:

Tip #1. Clean before you colour
If you want healthy hair, wash it before you go to your colorist. It takes longer for the chemicals to break through dirt to perform the reaction desired, so you should always have a clean head when you plan on getting your hair colored.

Tip #2. Pre-style before you go to the salon
Always wear your hair as you normally do. If you don’t then you might get a look that you wont like on an everyday basis. So if you usually wear your hair straight go to the salon with straight hair. If you usually curl your hair go to the salon with curls. This will give your stylist a set idea of what will look good on you on a day to day basis.

Tip #3. Hot water causes fading
We all know heat opens up the cuticle this is where the color pigment molecules are. So if you are wondering why your color never sticks and you are taking showers that could heat up some pasta–that is your problem and you should wash your hair with lukewarm water or better yet cold.
