How to care for your dyed hair

Always prepare your hair

If you want good, long lasting hair even after you’ve got it coloured, you ought to prepare for the damage many months in advance. This includes ensuring that your hair is well-nourished and hydrated. Step up your oiling and hair mask game at least 2 months before you plan on dyeing your hair. Also, get regular trims and avoid heating tools.

Always bank on right dyes

A good quality hair dye which is sulphur free will go a long way in maintaining the health of your hair. If you are lifting the color with bleach, ensure you get the right developer for your hair color.

Wait before you shampoo

Don’t wash your hair for at least 48 hours. This is a mandatory step for anyone wishing their hair-color to last more than a week. Ideally, wait as long as you can.

Color-treated hair should always be cared for with mild shampoo and conditioner

Most shampoo and conditioner bottles will state if they are designed for color treated hair.

 

Wash you hair in the coldest water you can stand

Not just the first time, but all the time. Hot water dries out hair and skin, leaving it dull. Cold water will not only help you keep your color but also helps you keep your hair’s health and shine.

Dyeing is a repetitive process

Your hair shaft is delicate, and should only be dyed once a month or so. Any sooner than that and it will be prone to breaking, splitting, tangles and straw-like texture.

Hope these tips help you when you dye your hair!

Winter Hair Demands

Winter+Haircare+Tips

There’s no doubt that the onset of cooler temperatures and the fewer hours of sunlight bring with them a new set of hair demands.

Here are some tips for Hair care this winter

Flighting flaky scalps

Winters make your scalp go dry and itchy, and with little moisture in the air, the scalp will start getting flaky and extra dry, leading to dandruff. So how to take care of hair in winter you ask?Heat or warm up your hair oil and mix it with some lemon juice squeezed out of fresh lemon.

Controlling Frizzy Hair

There’s too much static happening around you from pullovers to sweaters to scarfs. While I can’t give you the perfect solution these are a few tips that help me.

When combing your hair, use a vented hair brush that has a combination of plastic and boar bristles. Wash your hair only with lukewarm water, not hot water, as the latter will further dry out your scalp. Apply a leave-in conditioner to keep hair smooth.

Oiling for Healthy Hair

Though we find this task burdensome but there’s no denying it – this is the healthiest thing for your hair. While giving yourself a hair oil massage, heat the oil slightly for best results! Also if you can get your hands on olive oil it would certainly do you a great deal.

Dry your hair the correct way

Winters are especially difficult for letting your hair get completely dry after a wash, but if you think it’s okay to have a bit of wet hair and still tie it up, think again! Hair that is not dried out properly can lead to a host of problems for your hair and scalp, especially so in the winters. So whether you take those extra minutes to use the hair dryer or whether you give yourself some extra time that allows you time to air-dry your hair naturally, it’s imperative you make sure it happens.

Follow these simple tips and say good bye to troublesome hair this winter.
