I'm on tv. I do my hair, with heat, five days a week-- and I have color treated hair! Could be a recipe for disaster, and though I do have some breakage, it could be worse. I take preventative measures, like keeping my hair well conditioned, moist, and NEVER laying down without a silk scarf.
I found this Jones Mag interview with celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephens, and she gives some excellent advice for color treated gals.
JONESMAG.COM: What are your top five tips for keeping color-treated hair healthy?
URSULA STEPHENS: First, Increase your conditioning treatments. Your hair need to stay hydrated. On top of a deep conditioner, I usually recommend a leave-in too. Try Motions Nourish Leave-In Conditioner. It’s enriched with natural ingredients like Vitamin E and silk proteins that moisturize strengthen and protect vulnerable hair.
Second, Try to avoid products that contain alcohol.
My third tip would be alternating your chemical processes – don’t relax and color at the same time to avoid breakage.
Fourth, take a break from your flatiron – unless you have a hot date!
And five, try letting you hair air dry – even if it’s only a few times a week, this will help maintain healthy hair.
