Dyed hair can be great when you do the dyeing the right way and you give your hair that TLC afterwards. If you understand that dyed natural hair demands more from you because it’s very fragile than virgin hair and you’re still interested in dyeing the hair, then keep reading. Also, if you’re having a hard time with your hair after you dyed it, this will help you.
1. Use the right dye
When you are coloring your hair, it is important to get a good dye and bleach so your hair does not get too damaged. If you are lifting color with bleach, ensure you get the right developer for your hair color. If you aren’t sure about what to do, go to a hair stylist who knows what they’re doing. Read more about the dyeing process so that you know what they’re doing at every point.
2. Wash your hair less often
Frequently washing your hair will cause the dye to fade faster and cause your hair to even become dryer. You can wash your hair regularly with shampoo maybe once a month. You still need to moisturize your hair every day since the life of your hair depends on it.
3. Deep condition
You’ll find that you would have to buy more deep conditioners than even your shampoo. Virgin natural hair already lacks moisture and dyeing it strips off more of that moisture so you’ll find that your dyed hair always looks dry, Before washing your hair, you should deep condition it to provide it with the needed moisture. Apply conditioner from the tips of your hair to the roots but you should be focusing on the tips as they are the oldest part of the hair.
4. Protein treatment
Protein treatments strengthen hair, help prevent breakage, repair damage, and restore elasticity. These treatments are especially helpful on chemically treated tresses, including colour-treated or relaxed hair. They should be done every 4 to 6 weeks. Protein treatments should be applied so sparingly for a couple of reasons, the first being that applying protein treatments too often can lead to protein overload causing breakage throughout the hair.
5. Allow your hair to naturally dry
Unless you’re in a hurry, allow your hair to naturally dry as often as possible. If you absolutely must use heat, apply heat protectant to your hair. Your hair has already gone through a chemical manipulation; you don’t need more harm done to it.
6. Take breaks from bleaching the hair
The more you bleach the hair, the more porous it will become resulting in it not holding onto dye very well. Allow your hair to grow. If the faded hair isn’t looking nice, do a protective style. This will give your hair a much needed break.
