It’s a no-brainer that hair care is synonymous with hair health. However, the importance of caring for your hair is amplified when you have coloured hair. Why? because your hair is a lot more vulnerable and susceptible to damage. Before we tell you how you can care for your colour-processed hair, here are reasons why you should amp up the haircare:
- Proper hair care helps maintain the vibrancy and shine of coloured hair, preventing fading and dullness. Because colouring can damage hair, regular hair care helps prevent further damage and keeps hair healthy.
- Proper hair care helps increase longevity: Proper hair care increases the longevity of the colour, making it last longer and look better.
- Proper hair care helps avoid colour fading: Regular washing, conditioning, and protection from heat and environmental factors can prevent colour fading and help maintain desired tones.
- Proper hair care helps prevent breakage. Hair care helps prevent breakage and split ends, which can be exacerbated by colouring.
Now, here are some tips on how to care for your coloured hair:
1. Use colour-safe products: To help protect and preserve the colour, use shampoos, conditioners, and styling products designed specifically for coloured hair.
2. Avoid heat styling as much as possible to avoid damage and fading; if you must use hot tools, use a heat protectant spray.
3. Wear a hat or use an SPF-containing hair product to protect your hair from the damaging effects of sun exposure.
4. Rinse hair with cold water after washing to help seal the cuticle and prevent fading.
5. Avoid using harsh chemicals, such as bleach or perms, which can cause further damage and cause fading.
6. Deep condition on a regular basis to add moisture and nourishment to your hair.
NB : Remember to follow the manufacturer's instructions for the specific hair colour you have and to be gentle when brushing and styling to avoid damaging the hair.
Now go forth and prosper with your vibrant crown!
