5 ways to protect your colored hair from breakage
#1. ASSESS THE CURRENT STATE OF YOUR HAIR
Ask yourself is my hair healthy? If it’s not then you may want to reconsider coloring your hair. If your hair needs some TLC then it’s best to stay on top of your trims and treatments.
#2. DON’T RUSH THE COLORING PROCESS
Color services often take multiple sessions at the hair shop to get the desired results and to make sure your hair is healthy. If you try and rush coloring your hair things can go horribly wrong and trust me you do not want that.
#3. INVEST IN COLOR PROTECTING CONDITIONERS
Coloring your hair is just the beginning. When you pay all that money to get your hair done you obviously want the color to stay vibrant for as long as possible. A color protecting conditioner is the best way to achieve that, just make sure you choose products that cater to your specific color.
#4. DON’T NEGLECT THE NEED FOR UV PROTECTION
Just like our skin, our hair needs protection from UV rays too. Too much sun exposure can cause your color to fade and cause your hair to become dry and brittle. Keep your hair hydrated with a UV/heat protectant.
#5. DON’T FORGET TO MOISTURIZE OFTEN
Coloring your hair can make your hair look and feel dry so be sure to incorporate a hydrating deep conditioner into your routine. Daily moisturizing also helps to nourish your hair while keeping frizz away.
Now that you know how to treat your colored hair make that hair appointment and get your hair laid for spring.
