If you are not a natural blonde, you know that lightening the locks can cause a lot of changes in the hair, such as breakage, dryness and color fading. The American Marie Claire consulted Clayton Lee, colorist of "Bumble and Bumble", to know how to treat the hair post-chemistry
- CHOOSE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
By making lights, you should wash your hair less (avoid washing every day), regardless of your type of yarn, because the procedure dries and much washing will aggravate the problem and still fade the color. When choosing shampoo and conditioner, look for specific formulas to maintain and protect color and prefer non-sulphate products. To ensure that your blonde will not yellow, invest in a purple shampoo, but do not use every day, once a week is enough.
- MAKE REGULAR HYDRATION
If you have decided to become blonde, consider that the care will be eternal. Fading the wires causes damage and dryness. Therefore, you need to use nutrition mask or reconstruction on the wires, depending on your need, once a week or every 15 days. Also, invest in a leave-in. Whenever you wash the hair, wipe it in damp hair to achieve softer locks and seal the cuticles.
- PROTECT HOT TOOL WIRES
Dryer, flat iron and babyliss damage any type of wire, but are especially threatening to those who make lights. But since you probably use some (or all) of them, you need to minimize the damage. Use a cream or spray to protect your hair before using one of these tools. And do not forget to apply on full length hair and tips.
- AVOID THE SUN
When you go to the pool, wear a hat or cap to prevent the sun's rays from reaching the wires. They also dry and change the color. But if there is no way, there are hair products with SPF, apply before exposing to the sun.
- PREPARE THE HAIR TO THE SWIMMING POOL
Unnatural blondes think that the first swim they get in the pool will stay with the green wires. In fact, it's a risk, but there are a few ways to prevent it. Putting on a burrow is a great protection, but if your style was not great, you should prepare the wires before entering the pool: "Apply conditioner before entering the pool or the sea to create a barrier between your hair and the Salty or chlorinated water, "advises the colorist. "After leaving the pool, rinse your hair as soon as possible to remove the residue." If you swim frequently and notice some green tone on your wires, use a deep cleaning shampoo. But if the green persists, you should seek out your hairdresser for him to arrange the color.
- FIGHT AGAINST BREAKING THE WIRES
First and foremost, make sure your hairdresser does the touch up without damaging your hair. Other than that, retouching should be done when needed and not in a very short period of time. If you make lights every month or every two months, it will probably damage, break and cause excessive dryness to your wires. And to prevent hair from breaking and becoming fragile, invest in masks, especially those formulated for hair with a coloring process. In the absence of a mask, you can also use only the conditioner and let it act for ten minutes.
