When it comes to color-treated locks, gentle hair care products are the way to go. After all, chemical processing can do a number on your hair, leaving it dehydrated, weak and dull. If you want to avoid the downsides of dyed tresses, explore your finest options in terms of mild and all natural shampoos. Remember, what works the best for you is the best.
Go as easy on your dyed strands as possible with a natural shampoo that is completely free of harsh parabens and sulfates. Seek out a calming organic formula to nourish and condition your hair using components such as aloe vera, chamomile, lavender, jojoba oil, white tea extracts and rosemary. These types of natural elements are non-drying and won't extract essential moisture from your hair.
Replenish your stressed out dyed tresses with a gentle and natural shampoo that will not only hydrate, but also will seal moisture in for hours at a time. If your color-treated hair shows visible signs of damage (think split ends, dryness and breakage), this type of product may be the solution for you. Look for intensely moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin, shea butter and the antioxidant vitamin E.
When your hair undergoes any type of chemical processing, it generally incurs at least a small amount of damage, and dyeing procedures are in no way exempt. Reverse the damage with a natural fortifying shampoo that will restore your hair's former resilience, elasticity and overall strength. Kiss breakage and split ends goodbye with a protein-based formula that is packed full of fortifying amino acids, keratin and starch.
One of the common downsides to color-treated hair is limpness. If your dyed strands have simply lost all energy, vitality and bounce, a natural volumizing shampoo may just be able to save the day. Seek out a mild volume-boosting shampoo that can give your hair sexy body and radiance with components such as wheat proteins, vitamin E and rosemary and panthenol.
