How to Maintain Your Color-Treated Hair
The Treated Hair subjected to chemical and mechanical stress require special care and attention. Here are tips. The healthy hair is by definition silky, shiny and soft. Unfortunately, often the various types of treatment chemicals (dyes, streaks, highlights) and physical (phone, plates, and rods), especially if prolonged, make them dull, lifeless, devoid of volume and brittle.
To avoid finding yourself with ruined hair and having to give them a drastic cut, you have several solutions available. The first is to use specific products that protect hair from heat during brushing. It is also very important to reduce the use of excessively hot plates and irons. Finally, give yourself, at least once a week, a good moisturizing and nourishing mask, which will rebuild the hair fiber. Let’s see the steps in detail.
Washing treated hair in the right way is essential to prevent drying out and losing shine. Choose a specific shampoo for treated hair (find it indicated in the package). Wash gently without attacking the stems. If you have dyed hair, you prefer colored hair shampoo. It keeps the color full and bright, preventing it from discoloring.
The choice of balsam is also fundamental, as it must be of good quality as it will be necessary to nourish the hair in depth and strengthen it if it is a little weakened. Once a week, then, allow yourself a little extra time to apply a nourishing and polishing mask.
Last trick during cleansing. Always end with a jet of cold water to close off the cuticles, which were previously “opened” by washing bases (it is a necessary step to eliminate traces of sebum, dirt, and pollution).
Those we are about to tell you, are valid suggestions for all types of hair. But that becomes even more for those treated and therefore more weakened.
When drying, the hair dryer should be used carefully, possibly at a medium power and without getting too close to the hair. Initially, use it without a spout to disperse the heat evenly throughout the hair. Add it then when you’re going to shape the locks with the brush (the famous brushing!).
In any case, never use the hair dryer completely soaked in water. It would literally be like cooking them in a pan. First, dab gently with a towel without rubbing. In this way, you will not lift the cuticles, and you will avoid finding yourself with frizzy hair. Only when the hair is well buffered, you can untangle it with a wide-toothed comb, and always if you have previously applied the conditioner.
Even the type of hair dryer has its importance. The model’s ion is the most suitable for treated hair, since thanks to their technological electrodynamics, while drying release ions that moisturize the hair. The power? It must be at least 1600 watts.
Even the brushes or combs you use must be suitable for styling, have large teeth and soft bristles, better if natural, and must be washed and cleaned often. Avoid plastic. It is the main cause of electric hair.
Treatments for dyed hair
If you cannot do without dyeing your hair, wanting to cover the white or show off the trendiest colors of the moment, we recommend that you rely on a professional color who knows not only to identify the most suitable shades for your complexion, but that uses products as little as possible aggressive.
In reality, it is not just the formulation of dyes that respects (or, on the contrary, damages) hair, as much as the technique used for coloring. Both in the salon and at home, for a good result, it is very important to respect the laying times indicated on the package. Sometimes exceeding them by 5 minutes could stress the hair.
The hair will suffer less, moreover, if at the time of rinsing they will be washed with shampoos suitable for the same color. A good colorist stands out from this. In fact, there are specific products to fix the color just applied, nourish the stems, and close the scales perfectly. This is the only way to ensure a soft head, even if colored.
Hair care colored in the summer
The beautiful season puts a strain on the colored hair. The mix of UV rays, wind, and sea or swimming pools can have a remarkably desiccant effect.
The first suggestion is to protect the hair with an anti-UV screening product, which prevents drying and fading. It has been observed that after a full summer spent in the sun.
the hair is damaged as if they had undergone a bleach bath. Hats, scarves, and bandanas come to the rescue. For greater protection, opt for sunscreens for hair with specific filters. Commercially there are products with thick texture for dry and curly hair, and other lighter ones suitable for fine and thin hair. They design all to avert the “color changes” strange in color, as the yellows in blonde hair and the orange in the chestnut. In addition to keeping the color unaltered and bright, they contrast the
In addition, anti-UV products for newer hair act as models for hairstyles to show off in the evening, when there is no brush and hair dryer time.
About brush and hairdryer, in summer you can take a break from brushing, to give way to beach waves, now on the crest of the wave (it is appropriate to say!) For a while ‘of years. If you love the effect, however, opt for the smoothing brushes. less invasive than the classic plates, eliminate the frizz with delicacy. You always pass on completely dry hair!
