A lot of us women like to get our hair dyed or highlighted frequently, because we want to have that beautiful platinum blonde or dark auburn hair color that we love but were not naturally born with. Coloring your hair can give you a life-changing boost of confidence, because your hair is the color you want it to be, and no one has to know that is actually artificial! However, one of the only downsides to coloring your hair is that the bleach used to strip your hair of its natural color also strips your hair of its natural oils especially when used on your hair very often.
As a result, coloring your hair frequently can cause serious damage to your hair and can make your hair look dry and fried which is not the most attractive look. My hair in the past has looked very dry, frizzy, and damaged from the usual full head of highlights I get done typically every few months. But now I have started doing things to my hair to better take care of it and make it look and feel more healthy, and I’ve got to tell you it has made a huge difference! My tomboy sister who doesn’t often notice small details of someone’s appearance has even told me that it looks ten times better than it did a few months ago! So without further ado, here is how I changed my hair from looking like a fried frizzy mess to looking beautiful, silky, and smooth in just a short period of time!
Use keratin-infused shampoo and conditioner, a sulfate-free shampoo is also a must!
Keratin protein is great for your hair, therefore using a shampoo and conditioner that contains protein will work wonders on your hair and make it look much healthier. The shampoo and conditioner that you use can make a tremendous difference, and if you color your hair often it is especially important to use shampoo and conditioner that it is also extra moisturizing. I personally love using the Chi Keratin Reconstructing Conditioner which contains jojoba and argon oils as well as hydrolyzed silk, ingredients that are proven to give your hair extra moisture and shine.
When you color your hair, it is imperative to wash your hair with shampoo that does not contain sulfates since they can strip your hair of the hair dye over time.
It’s so important especially with over-processed hair to pay attention to the ingredients that are in your shampoo and conditioner. It is also best in general but especially for color-treated hair to only wash your hair about three or four times a week, because washing it everyday will strip your hair of its natural oils making in dryer.
