I remember the first time I tried to color my hair. I felt so excited because I get to have a new look without having to cut my hair. It made me feel good and all but there was one thing that I didn’t do. I forgot to take good care of it! If your hair is colored, the strands tend to get a little weak and brittle from the chemicals. I didn’t do anything about it and I even used hair straighteners and curling irons quite frequently. I eventually ended up with lots of split ends which didn’t look good at all.
If you are always subjecting your hair to harsh elements, you have to make sure that you maintain it very well. Learning from my mistakes, I have adapted some techniques to keep them smooth, shiny and manageable!
As I have mentioned earlier, your hair tends to get a little weak from coloring, so using a specific shampoo that will cater to that need is very essential. They contain ingredients that will bring back the necessary nutrients and making the color appear more vibrant. Try to look for products that will go wth your hair type.
If you are using a lot of heat tools, it’s best to deep condition your hair at least once a week to help keep your tresses stronger. No matter how thick or fine your hair is, it is always best to keep them in good condition. Try to let the product sink its goodness into the cuticles by letting it stay on for at least 3-5 minutes. You will notice a big difference after you rinse it off.
Whether you’ve color treated your hair or not, using a treatment oil is the shiz! It’s also one of the products that will keep your hair strong and healthy while you’re having your much needed beauty rest. My favorite treatment oil is from Lucido-L. It’s not greasy and you will instantly have amazing hair that will last throughout the day.
If you love to use straightening irons and curling wands, please don’t ever forget to use a heat protectant. It coats the strands of your hair so that it will make it less prone to damage. However, I’d also like to stress that you need to avoid using these tools as much as possible. Don’t use them that often. You can try other no-heat curling methods so that you can still get wavy strands without subjecting them to more damage!
If you currently have split ends, it is best to cut your hair. Even the best hair products won’t save most of your strands so that’s why it’s a good idea to trim the ends at least every 3 months or so.
