Color Damage Woes
Color-treated hair is more vulnerable to damage and breakage. Coloring your hair penetrates the cuticle with chemicals and removes your natural pigment, It changes the structure of your hair, making it more susceptible to damage.
Once the bleaching process has began you have already altered the strength of your hair, making it weaker. If you add blow drying and styling on top of bleaching, you can really damage your hair, causing breakage, a dull look, and split ends. Color-treated hair needs extra moisture, and using a leave-in conditioner at least three times per week can restore lost moisture and improve the luster and texture of your hair. Deep conditioning your hair on a regular basis will help replenish lost moisture and keep locks shiny and resilient. To reduce the threat of color damage prep your hair in advance. Two weeks before coloring your hair, be sure to prep your hair with a protein rich, deep moisturizing conditioner. Your hair can be treated with the protein/moisturizing combo at once, or by separate products that provide both benefits. Once your hair has been properly treated, it will be better suited to undergo the coloring process.
