Hair Color and Health

If you want to keep your hair colored and healthy, you will have to take special care for that. Most often, the colored hair become faint due to the sun exposure, so the most important thing is to cover up your hair to prevent it from the sun rays. You can also use products that have sunscreen to color your hair. After coloring the hair, use a gentle shampoo and then condition as much as possible without making your hair go limp. Use soft comb to brush the hair. If you are coloring your hair at home, moisten the hair ends before coloring. The ends of everyone's hair are absorbent, so they absorb more color. Wet hair does not soak up color as quickly as dry hair, so do not color your hair when it is wet. If there is dandruff in your hair, brush it before shampooing, because the dandruff is harmful for the health of your hair. It is better if you find out a hair-coloring product that is most suitable to your hairstyle. Some hair conditioners also causes hair color to fade, so use mild conditioners to keep your hair always colored. It is better if you dry your hair by a natural way, instead of using electric dryer.

Colored hair remedies

One of the first steps you can take to keep your freshly bleached and colored hair healthy is to make certain you are using the correct shampoo for your hair. There is a vast variety of shampoos that are available to use for colored hair. Depending on the condition and texture of your hair, you must pick the right one and stick to using that only. Remember that regular shampoos may not be able to protect your hair adequately from the harsh effects of bleaching and coloring your hair. Shampoos formulated for colored hair contain certain chemicals that will protect your hair properly. If you use a daily conditioner, make certain that you use one for colored hair as well.

Apart from this, you must make it a routine to oil the roots and strands of your hair thoroughly at least once a week. This will provide the much needed deep conditioning to your hair, which has suffered from extreme dryness due to the procedure of bleaching and dyeing. Leave the oil on overnight so that it has a chance to work better. Alternately, you can also apply a mixture of milk and milk cream to your hair. Whip this well and add an egg yolk to it for extra conditioning.

Bleached and colored hair cures 

Colouring your hair is an excellent way to change your look radically and it gives you a brand-new chic look. However it is important to remember to take care of your hair after it has been coloured. The exposure to the chemicals in hair colour, make your hair susceptible to dryness, coarseness, brittleness, split ends and dandruff. Since hair colours have a tendency to dry hair, it is important to use shampoos and conditioners meant specifically for coloured hair since they have added moisturisers that moisturise and smooth your hair. You can ask for hair salon for recommendations. Another option for moisturising your hair is going in for hair masks, available to most salons these days. Prepared using natural products, fruits and herbs these masks are applied in your hair and left for 10 to 15 minutes to allow the effects of the mask to reach the hair follicles, before rinsing it off.  

Coloured hair should also be protected from the sun, not only to avoid excessive drying but also to ensure the colour lasts longer. To prevent the suns rays from harming your hair, use conditioners that have sunscreen incorporated in them or wrap a scarf around your hair if you are going to be out in the sun for very long. Since coloured hair is also more brittle and prone to breaking, use a wide-toothed comb, instead of a brush, particularly after washing your hair. Also avoid using a hair dryer, allowing your hair to dry naturally instead, so that your hair does not become excessively dry. Finally do not wash your hair too often if you want the colour to last longer – washing your hair thrice a week is sufficient to keep it clean.
