How to Care for Colour Treated Hair

Colour treated hair requires special attention when you leave the salon. It means saying goodbye to supermarket shampoos, ditching the heat and minimising how often you wash your hair. Unfortunately, good hair requires time, money, and effort. But your hair will reap the benefits, and you will have one happy hairdresser as a result. Therefore, if you are up for the challenge and want to start taking care of your colour treated hair, this is the blog post for you.

Why Does It Require Extra Care?

There are many reasons colour treated hair requires extra care. However, the one thing that they all have in common is that they contribute to how long your colour will last. Colouring your hair inevitably causes a certain extent of damage to your hair. The degree of damage can vary depending on the colour service you have had and the products your colourist used.

Hair Porosity

Hair porosity refers to the hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture. You will either have high-porosity hair, low-porosity hair, or medium-porosity hair. Colour treated hair, however, tends to be highly porous. But what does that mean? High-porosity hair can absorb moisture easily, but it can lose it just as quickly. Therefore, you will find that high-porosity hair feels dry and experiences frizz. One way to tackle highly porous strands is by investing in the correct hair care. A key ingredient to look out for in hair care products is Wheat Proteins. It is because the main function of this ingredient is to attract and retain moisture in the hair. We recommend using the Nourishing Restructuring Mask once a week to restructure your hair and bring it back to life. Another must-have product from the Nourishing range is the Restructuring Split Ends Cream. Highly porous hair has raised cuticles. This product will help to seal the cuticle with a filming, anti-frizz action.

Colour Protection

For many people with colour treated hair, their main concern is how to prevent their colour from fading. The easiest way to keep your colour looking salon fresh is by using colour-friendly products. The most important product to start with is the shampoo you are using. You need to invest in one that helps to preserve the duration and brightness of cosmetic colour, for example, the After Colour Care Shampoo. Not only does this protect your colour. But it also nourishes your hair. Thanks to the shampoo containing Linseed Oil and Vitamin E. However, make sure you are not washing your hair every day as this will inevitably lead to colour fade. Instead, opt for a dry shampoo in-between hair wash days.

Heat Protection

When you expose your hair to extreme heat, you can risk your colour fading. Therefore, using a heat protection product whenever you use hair straighteners or other heated styling tools is vital. Plus, heat protection products also defend your hair against heat damage, breakages, and split ends. Luckily for you. The demand for heat protection products is high. So, as a result, they are available in different forms such as sprays, creams, and oils, meaning there is something to suit everyone. 

Invest In Salon Treatments

Salon treatments should be a priority if you have colour treated hair. Hopefully, this is something you have already been told by your colourist. But if not, let us tell you why. Keeping your hair healthy in between salon appointments is essential to protect the integrity of your hair. The integrity of your hair refers to your hair’s overall health, including the current condition of your hair and how strong it is. During technical services, your colourist will always avoid compromising the integrity of your hair. They may even suggest alternatives if they don’t think your hair is strong enough to withstand the technical service. 

Colour Masks

Another way you can care for colour treated hair in between salon appointments is by using a colour mask. This type of product is especially a must-have if you love experimenting with bright hair colours. It is because bright hair colours fade quicker and can tend to look dull after a month or so. However, colour masks can revive and intensify your colour and help to prolong the time between your next colour service.
