Color Treated Hair

A lot of women enjoy coloring their hair to change their looks. This is all fine as long as it is well taken care of especially during the summer time. The heat of the sun can easily leave the hair dry and damaged, to avoid that, here are some hair care tips for women or men who have color treated hair.

  • Do not shampoo your hair everyday. Limit to washing it every 3 days if possible. This is because if you wash the hair often, the color will come out.
  • Whenever you are out in the sun, try to cover your hair with cool accessories like hats or scarves. If you are not into that, always apply a leave-on conditioner to protect it from the scorching heat.
  • If you can avoid it, do not use heating elements like straightening iron, blow dry or curling irons. This will just damage your hair.

So if you are one of these women who are dying to have Jennifer Aniston- straight hair, then here are some tips on how to achieve that without ruining your hair so much.

For girls with wavy hair, the best way to do it is to apply straightening lotions (dimethicone or cyclomethicone) do not overdose on the product. Just apply a good amount then blow dry. The curliness and frizz will be prevented. If your hair is more on the curly side, then you can do the same process of applying straightening lotion then using a straightening iron instead of a blow dryer. When choosing an iron, invest on a ceramic, titanium or tourmaline plate. Do not do this everyday though as it will definitely dry your hair. Twice or thrice a week is enough.

Natural Hair Care, No Chemicals

Hair should be treated with as much care as you do with your body. It is your crowning glory so it is just right that you are kind to it. The best way to do so is to avoid putting to much chemicals that can ruin it. Natural hair care products is the best way to start. Though there are many “natural” products available in the market with bottles showing lovely flowers and leaves, most of these still contain ingredients that are far from natural. The most common added are the agents that will make the shampoo create bubbles.

If you have the time, the most effective way to go all natural is to make one yourself. The “no poo do” only requires baking soda, apple cider vinegar and water. Research the measurements online. Another idea is using everyday oil with various plants and roots. The first few days your hair will act differently as it takes awhile for it to adjust but the result is definitely worth it.
