High porosity is the main reason for dry, weak and dull hair and any hair styling or treatment process that attempts to change the natural state or behavior of your hair is likely to make it highly porous. During hair coloring process, hair cuticles are lifted, allowing dyes to soak into the hair to create your desired shade. Keeping a long lasting and vibrant color requires effective repair of lifted cuticles to lock-in the colorants and to avoid their leakage from inside the hair. In addition, porous hair is incapable of retaining moisture balance to keep it soft and elastic. Here are a few tips to help you revert to normal porosity for a long-lasting hair color:
Make Quality Your priority When Choosing A Hair-Color.
Ask your beautician to use a professional hair color with conditioning properties. This will help condition your hair, especially if the colorant contains natural oils. It will also help retain moisture in your color-treated hair and leave it looking healthy and shiny.
Switch to Loba Mane Hair Cleanser.
Loba Mane's Hair Cleanser gently yet effectively cleans and conditions your hair, all in ONE step. It will help your hair look shinier and more vibrant. Apply it evenly to all of your hair. Expect to see compact and creamy lather. Its mild cleaning system works to clean your hair while protecting your color. Its deep conditioning properties promote moisture retention and manageability. This product provides the healthiest approach to chemically-treated hair.
Wash Your Hair Less Frequently And With Lukewarm Water.
Wash your mane one to three times per week, and never more than every other day, unless you are using Loba Mane's Hair Cleanser. This will help retain the natural oils your scalp produces to condition your color-treated hair. Use lukewarm water or cooler temperature. Avoid hot water as it will open the cuticles of the hair strands, causing the color molecules to escape. When you are not washing your hair, keep your hair dry using a shower cap.
Apply Leave-In Treatments To Seal Your Color.
Leave-in treatments can help detangle your hair, give it extra condition and sometimes even hold your style. Use a leave-in treatment containing natural oils, specifically formulated for color-treated hair. If you frequently use blow dryers, curling or straightening irons Loba Mane’s Styling Cream leave-in treatment is a must-have.
Healthy Hair Begins With Healthy Body.
One of the key nutrients to improve hair’s strength, elasticity and growth is Biotin. A deficiency in biotin will lead to a dry scalp with the associated problems of dandruff, flaky scalp and dull, brittle hair.
You can find biotin in walnuts, carrots, spinach, chicken, meat and seafood (specially cold water fish), eggs, whole grain, and yogurt.
