Colored hair needs to be treated well. Even if you have blond, brunette, red or platinum hair – you need to take care of your hair. Maybe you have felt that your hair becomes dry, frizzy, or damaged after color treatment?
Why colored hair is more fragile
When you dye your hair, it creates a chemical reaction. The reaction makes the outer layer of your hair shaft – the cuticle open. This allows chemicals to penetrate the cortex (the middle layer of your hair) And add permanent color to your hair.
The chemicals make your hair more fragile. To build up your hair strength, you need to give it extra attention. This means that you must add moisture, protect and be gentle to it. By doing those steps, it will make your color last longer, and your hair will be healthier.
