It seems like just about every woman today has their hair colored. You’ll be hard-pressed to find anybody that is sporting their natural hair color without any trace of hair color at all. Going to a premium hair salon to have your hair color treated is extremely popular due to the fact that adding a touch of color to your hair can often highlight your features and compliment your natural beauty.
However, color-treated hair does need a bit of extra TLC to not only help preserve the color but to help replenish your hair’s natural moisture due to the harsh chemical dyes. Color-treated hair looks beautiful but without the necessary care can quickly resemble dry, brittle horse hair.
Here are some tips from Athena, a premier Windsor hair salon when it comes to maintaining shiny, healthy, color-treated locks.
Use shampoos, conditioners, and other salon products that are specially formulated for color-treated hair such as Eufora products available at Athena Salon and Spa.
Use a deep-conditioning treatment once a week. Dyed hair is easily stripped of its natural essential oils and only a deep moisturizing treatment can help restore shine. Make sure to coat your entire head in the treatment, leave on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.
Try a hot oil treatment monthly as well. These treatments can be purchased from a local drugstore or your hair salon may have some suggestions as well. The oils from these treatments will be absorbed into your hair and can help smooth and flatten the hair cuticle making it shiny and soft.
Comb your hair with a wide-tooth comb to minimize breakage. Color-treated hair already runs the risk of being brittle and brushing it with a brush can often put too much stress on it causing it to become thin or break.
Apply quality leave-in conditioners to your hair after every shower. By simply spraying a leave-in conditioner onto your roots and tips, you can help hydrate your strands daily and also help lock in your hair color.
If you have any other questions about how to achieve the color-treated look you’ve always wanted or want to know how to best take care of existing hair color, call the beauty experts at Athena Salon. They will help you look and feel your best!
