With the passage of time our hair begins to lose shine and softness, because it is constantly subjected to continuous aggressions such as heat and chemicals such as dyes. The masks are characterized by their high nutritional components and help better hydration and restoration; so if you want to repair your hair after a chemical treatment or extend the duration of your new dye, take a look at these options and choose the best one for you.
Dyed, shiny and soft: is it possible?
It seems that these three parameters cannot be “mixed” or are impossible to achieve at the same time. If you dye and cover your gray hair, it is likely that you have little soft hair to the touch, in addition to the appearance of this is not the best.
But not only the problem is the ink, full of chemical components, but also other carelessness or abuse that is applied to the hair daily. The iron, the dryer, the curling iron or the sun can cause a lot of damage.
If you want some when dyeing your hair, pay close attention!
1. As a first step, moisturize.
Perform hydration massages to your dyed hair once a week. Use natural products, such as coconut oil, olive oil or oat milk. You can also buy the different creams that are sold in the market. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, rinse and wash regularly. In some cases you should not wash it.
For a more effective result you can put on a plastic cap in that period of time.
Paint Kitts sometimes include a balm that you have to use at approximately ten days, don’t forget it.
2. What products you use to clean your dyed hair.
The best shampoos and conditioners for dyed hair are those that are prepared with jojoba or coconut oil. They need to be as natural as possible and to get good and immediate effects, you can make these products yourself. In the market, also, there are an infinity of specific brands to maintain the dye and take care of your hair.
Avoid shampoos for oily hair or “deep cleansing” because they are stronger and sweep with everything, even with your dye.
3. Don’t forget, protect it.
The sun, the chlorine of the pool, the water of the sea, the wind, are all enemies of your hair, especially when it is dyed. During the summer you should increase the protection using a spray or cream, or cover it with a hat or with a handkerchief.
This will act as a barrier so that the sun’s rays, in the first instance, do not wear down the color of the dye.
It is also necessary to protect the hair of the iron and the dryer, a “mechanical” damage, because it removes moisture and color. Before using these items, put on a protective balm and never iron your hair with wet or damp hair.
4. Do not use products with ammonia.
While there are almost no products that use this gas so bad for the hair, some brands still keep it among the components of their dyes. It is a harmful product because it weakens and dries the hair and also leaves it dull. Consult the ammonia-free products in the perfumery and the next time you go to dye yourself, be more rigorous with your choices.
5. Finally, don’t forget to cut it regularly.
Experts say that a good cut is healthy for the hair (a few centimeters, don’t panic), about three times a year. You don’t need to go to a hairdresser for it, you can do it yourself if you dare, or ask a friend for a favor. You can keep it healthy by cutting the tips and going to the hairdresser every six months if you prefer a more professional result.
