In my salon I deal with a lot of damaged hair and that type of hair needs to be treated before and after a corrective hair color process. I recommend a natural way of expediting the process instead of investing in a product that will not do anything made by a manufacturer and sells normally for $40-$50 dollars. And also these product’s are also chemicals that you are laying on top of damaged hair.  Since the start of history Coconut Oil has been tried and true. Since the Egyptians to the Greeks to Hollywood they have all used this method to had sheen, luster and conditioning to the hair.  A cost-effective way to bring back the health of the hair and make the elasticity come back within a few months.  Coconut oil, specifically virgin coconut oil, is a completely natural product  that is safe to use both internally and externally, and some believe it has  healing properties not found in other natural oils. Glands in your scalp produce  sebum, a natural oil required for healthy, strong hair. Sebum is a necessity for  hair growth and health. Coconut oil replenishes any lost oil to the hair  follicles and penetrates the hair’s shaft for deep moisturizing. Coconut oil is  a natural source of many vitamins and nutrients, which are used to seal in  moisture and coat the hair in a protecting layer to prevent lost moisture and  damage.  So if you are visiting me for a corrective hair color service, I will always recommend this all natural product.

Keeping your hair thoroughly moisturized is important in repairing and  preventing damage. Coconut works very much like a deep conditioner, restoring  natural oils and repairing existing damage. If your breakage is severe, a hot  coconut oil treatment treats split ends and other damage while replenishing lost  moisture and sealing the hair shaft to protect against further breakage. By  heating a clean towel in the dryer, you can turn coconut oil into an inexpensive  hot oil treatment and say goodbye to existing damage.

Massaging coconut oil into your scalp not only feels wonderful, but also gives  you even better results. Massaging the scalp stimulates the hair’s glands and  increases blood flow to promote hair growth, and the coconut oil has the ability  to enter the hair follicle to replenish lost moisture. When applied directly to  the scalp, coconut oil is an all-natural treatment for scalp inflammations like  dandruff and psoriasis. Over-the-counter and prescription shampoos and creams  have adverse side effects, such as causing open scalp sores, damages to the hair  itself and hair loss or slow hair growth.

To use coconut oil as a moisturizing treatment, work a few tablespoons into the  hair and scalp until both are completely saturated and leave on for 10 minutes.  For repairing and preventing damage, apply the coconut oil to your scalp and  hair then wrap your head in a heated towel. Leave the towel in place until it  completely cools down. With both the room temperature and hot oil treatments,  shampoo your hair afterwards to remove the oil. For scalp stimulation and  inflammation treatments, massage the coconut oil into your scalp for 10 minutes.  Allow the coconut oil to remain in place for an additional 20 minutes before  rinsing out and shampooing your hair, focusing on the scalp area. You may need  to shampoo your hair several times, specifically the root area, to remove excess  oil.

Over Processed Hair Can Be A Simple Fix In Time!

Hair that has been subjected to excessive heat styling or chemical treatments can become over-processed. Strands that are over-processed appear very dry and are prone to breakage. Coloring hair of this type presents a challenge and is best left to a professional. Hair is very porous and will absorb color quickly, however the color generally fades very quickly leaving you with a dull shade that isn’t what you sought and you can kiss all the elasticity down the drain its gone! There are some steps you can take to restore health to damaged hair so that color lasts as it should.

Use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner designed for color-treated hair. Avoid shampooing every day and instead rinse hair with water, condition and re-rinse. This helps your dry strands retain moisture and aids in preventing hair color fadage! Avoid harsh shampoos, such as those designed to remove dandruff from your scalp. Medicated shampoos will further strip the moisture out of your hair, along with removing added hair color. Consider washing your hair with only conditioner for the first few weeks after coloring. Shampoo contains many harsh chemicals that can strip the remaining moisture out of damaged hair. Use conditioner only until the natural oils return to your hair and scalp, and then add shampoo back into your routine.

Avoiding brushing your hair when it’s wet, as this is when hair is weakest and most susceptible to breakage. If you must style your hair while it’s wet, use a wide-toothed comb. This is a big rule everyone make sure before styling the hair to place a leave in conditioner in the hair than comb out from mid shaft to ends!

Use a deep conditioning treatment two to three times a week after you shampoo. Leave the treatment on your hair for at least five minutes after applying it generously from roots to ends. Use an  Olive Oil treatment in your hair twice a week. Apply warm Olive Oil or Almond Oil to damp hair before going to bed and wrapped in a shower cap. In the morning, wash and style as usual, and you will see improved shine and texture!

Hair coloring is something many people choose to do in the comfort of their own homes. Hair damage can occur from using boxed dyes or over-processing hair, even if the hair is thick and healthy to begin with. If you’ve damaged your hair with coloring treatments, there are steps you can take to get your hair back to a healthy, soft state. And most of all leave the job up to a professional when ever-changing or maintaining your hair color.
