Best colorfast inks? ( IX5000 / black = pigment / colors = dye )

I've started making some heat transfers with my canon.. used cheap copy inks.. and from my research only the black is a pigment ink on the originals.

I used superstretch transfer paper.

And I must say initial results are amazing, but after washing ( 2 times currently) It lost allot of vibrance.

Can anyone point me to pigment inks for Canon ix5000 ( cli-8 inks )?

Are the original dyes better for heat transfers?
Are the original cli-8 inks UV resistant? ( I found a refill kit that says the color inks are UV resistant )
