- Do not wash with hot water
Washing with hot water is a common habit for many people, but it does affect the structure of your hair, especially if your hair is weak due to dyeing. Hot water will dissipate the natural oils on the scalp and peel your scalp so your dyed hair color will go faster and drier.
If you wash with warm water, you should rinse with cold water last. This will help the scalp to seize and reduce scalp peeling.

Ultraviolet sunlight not only damages the skin but also damages the hair. For dyed hair, the hair is dry, fibrous and more colorless. Make sure your hair is protected such as using a hat, spraying sunscreen for the hair.
In an emergency, you can use SPF 20-25 sunscreen, diluted with water and sprayed lightly on the hair.
