5 Tips for Taking Care of Color Treated Hair

Are you dying for a hair change, but scared to color your hair? Don't be. Your hair will not fall out if it's cared for properly. Over the summer, I was ready for something drastic so I called up my stylist and told her I wanted to go BLONDE. Like not just blonde at the top like I've done in the past, but my whole entire head. She simply said, okay because she knew I would take proper care of it. 

I've survived years of getting my hair colored professionally and now I'm here to help you get started! Here are 5 tips for taking care of your color treated hair. 

  1. Leave it to a professional.  I get questions all the time asking if I color my hair myself and the answer is NO, I'm no professional. Find a salon and set up a consultation to get all your questions answered before adding any color to your hair. 
  2. Deep Condition. Find a deep conditioner you love and apply once or twice a month. Sunday is my wash day so I apply my deep conditioner, do some house work for 30-40 mins then rinse and finish my hair washing process. 
  3. Trims. Trimming your hair is always important, but now that you have color you want to keep up with your trips to avoid breakage.
  4. Avoid Heat. Try not to use high heat when blow drying and flat ironing your hair. I went all summer without using my blow dryer and I could tell a difference. 
  5. Keepin' it Mosturized. Dry hair means breakage. You want to make sure you're keeping your hair moisturized by adding some type of oil. I usually wash and go or twist my hair and during the process I always make sure my Kurlee Belle, Tropical Oil Blend is handy.
