Healthy hair is an important part of keeping your hair looking beautiful. This can be especially true after dyeing your locks. Hair dye can alter your hair’s structure and behavior. So proper hair care is vital to ensuring your color stays looking vibrant and beautiful. This article will explore ways you can improve the health of your hair after dyeing it.

How Dyeing Effects Hair Structure

Hair dyes penetrate the hair and bond with the individual strands of hair. The dye penetrates the cuticle in order to do this. Coloring too often without proper care can alter the strength of your strands, resulting in brittle hair or less effective coloring results. This can lead to dryness, split ends, and breakage. Thankfully, there is a multitude of products that help restore hair strength and maintain the coloration of your hair. This means healthier hair and longer times between dyes.

Dyeing Hair Over Time

Each time you dye your hair, you are affecting that strand more. This is especially true when going to lighter shades. Because of this, it is recommended that you gradually move up to lighter shades with each coloration. This can also make it easier to adjust to a new color. Stark changes to hair color can affect how you do your makeup, for example. Learning to adjust for lightening hair little by little can make the transition a lot easier on the rest of your beauty routine.

Protecting Your Hair with Shampoos

Just like every one’s hair is unique, not all shampoos are created equal. Some shampoos and conditioners offer protection for colored hair; or proteins such as keratin that can help restore hair strength. Furthermore, some products, such as purple-tint shampoo, can help reduce your color from changing naturally as time goes on, protecting the color you chose. Finding the right type of shampoo for your needs can help you protect your hair and your coloration.
