Hair Care Tips: Chemically treated hair

Chemical hair treatment is often the only way to achieve a certain result, but it is widely known that procedures such as color treatment, hair perming or straightening do a great deal of damage to your precious locks.

There is however something you can do to restore your hair's health and maintain your new style or color.

Here are the basics of what you need to know about the most common chemical treatments:

How to care for colored hair

The alkaline products used in the coloring process (like most chemical treatments) lift the cuticle layer of the hair and leave it more porous then it is in a normal condition. This is needed for the color molecules to penetrate the hair shaft and to actually color the hair. Although the coloring is successful, the hair is still with raised cuticles. This is the cause for most hairs to feel rough and breakable after coloring.

This process has also dried your hair a lot, so it is essential to reseal the cuticles in order to not only protect your new hair color, but to stop moisture loss and regain that silky smooth feel of your locks.

This can be done by using a moisturizing cream conditioner after dyeing. The hair conditioner moisturizes the hair and restores the cuticle layer's normal condition. You should by all means do that if you plan to use bleaching agents to lighten the hair prior to the coloring procedure.
