How To Take Care of Color-Treated Hair

The pandemic may have postponed that scheduled color and hair treatment, but others have finally found ways on how to dye their hair without worries.

Coloring your hair may be all fun and exciting, but remember to maintain your color-treated hair as well to prevent it from further damage and to prolong its color. Read on to learn everything you need to know about how to take care of colored hair, and the best practices on how to maintain it even you’re just at home.

  • Wash your hair after 72 hours

After you’re colored your hair, wait at least 2-3 days before you wash your hair again to give the color plenty of time to set. Waiting time is very important to let your hair’s natural oil form a protective layer around your hair shaft.

Take note that what you put on your hair will make a difference in the longevity of the color and the long-term health of your hair. Make sure that you use a sulfate-free and silicon-free shampoo when you wash your hair to minimize color bleeding and fading. Try the Mayraki Silky Smooth Proactive Hair Repairing Treatment – formulated with safe and natural ingredients that adds moisture and better texture for your hair.

  • Rinse with cool water

After choosing the right shampoo and conditioner for your recently color-treated hair, try rinsing it with cool water. Not many are aware of it but washing your hair with hot water causes the cuticles on the outer layer of your hair shaft to rise – leading to dullness and frizz. On the other hand, cool water seals your cuticles and helps seal the color in your hair shaft.

  • Trim damaged ends

While you’re at a salon, try getting a cut as well. Expect your hair to be more susceptible to damage after some months, so a proper trim will really be helpful is spreading damage in the ends.

  • Take Vitamin B and C
