What most people don’t realize is that taking care of colored hair requires more of an effort than it does with natural hair. This is due to the fact that your hair becomes more susceptible to damage after it comes into contact with hair dye especially if it goes through a bleaching process as well. No matter what color you dyed your hair it’s important that you understand that your hair is fragile than before and needs to be taken care of properly in order to avoid hair breakage as well as to make the hair color last for as long as possible.
Below are a few useful treatment tips you need know to keep your colored hair healthy.
Avoid Excess Contact With Water and Sunlight
After you first dye your hair, your hairdresser Surfers Paradise will advise you to avoid excessively exposing your hair to water. Although most people think it’s shampoo that makes the dye fade out, water alone can have the same effect. Hair professionals will most likely tell you to avoid bathing every time you notice a small hint of oil building up in your hair and instead use a good dry shampoo. Likewise, constant sun exposure can cause your color to fade out as well. If possible, you should always wear headgear to protect your hair from the UV rays of the sun, aside from fading out the color it can also make your hair dry and brittle and more susceptible to breakage.
Avoid Heat Styling
Although hair salon Surfers Paradise use heat based tools such as blow dryers and curling rods to style hair and make it look fresh and voluminous, you should not use these tools daily if you want to protect your colored hair. Your colored hair is far more vulnerable than your natural hair and heat based tools such as blow dryers will only do more harm than good. There are hair products that are designed to protect your hair from heat, in an instance where you really need to heat style your hair, using these products is recommended.
Avoid Physical Damage
What most people with colored hair don’t realize is that being rough with your hair is really bad for the color. Being rough includes yanking tangled hair while combing and constantly wearing your hair in tight ponytails and buns. Both these actions can cause your hair to get damaged and break very easily as it is vulnerable from the dye itself. Therefore it’s better to be more gentle and careful with your hair when you’re detangling it as well as styling it.
