Shampoo and Condition Color-treated Hair
In order to maintain and intensify the beauty and riches of color-treated hair, customers should choose hair products that help eliminate brassiness, prevent fading and give the hair sheen, body, and softness. Also, customers should shampoo only when they must, like twice a week, if they wear the wig everyday.
Shampoo: colored hair requires very special care. The shampoo should be specially formulated to improve the condition of the hair and to bring out the highlights and natural luster, without stripping or fading the color. There are special shampoos available for tinted hair, lightened, and toned hair. These shampoos help maintain the richness of the color by neutralizing yellow and eliminating the brassiness caused by oxidation. Colored hair is specially vulnerable during the summer. Bathing in the ocean, sun, and chlorine from swimming pools can cause extreme dryness, discoloration, and fading to the hair. Customers should protect their hair prior to swimming by applying a heavy conditioner and by using a hat. For swimming customers, we recommend immediate rinsing and the use of a clarifying shampoo after each pool session to remove the chlorine from her hair. Clarifying shampoos prevent the build-up of polymers and waxes on customers who use a lot of styling aids; they also remove copper and iron deposits from hard water. Bleached hair is sometimes so porous that it takes a long time to dry and won’t comb after shampooing. Shampoo this type of hair with a very mind shampoo specially formulated for bleached hair. Dilute the shampoo with water so it can be rinsed out completely.
Conditioners: conditioners that are rich in protein are powerful to treat dull, porous, and lifeless hair. They make hair manageable and lustrous while preventing hair breakage and brittle ends. Keratin protein and collagen protein are ingredients that bring hair suppleness, resilience, and strength while imparting body and shine. Do not use heavy cream-based rinses or instant conditioners on bleached hair. use a natural or organic conditioner which comes in vials. They are quickly absorbed into the hair shaft, do not need to be rinse out, and stop the breakage.
