One of the most common questions we receive from our customers is how to protect sun-bleached hair. While it’s true that sun bleaching can help darken your hair, too much can cause the hair to become dry and brittle, not to mention dangerous to your skin.
Unfortunately, the free-radical damage you will take is permanent; after using a product to lighten your hair, you are stuck with that color permanently. However, there are ways you can help minimize or even prevent your hair from losing its original color.
You can protect your hair with the right products. While we have yet to find the ultimate treatment for sun-bleached hair, the natural conditioners on the market today can lighten the color without causing it to become permanent. They are a proven way to make your color more even.
If you’ve suffered from severe scalp inflammation, it may be helpful to use a petroleum-based shampoo with nourishing oils. Try to steer clear of anything with perfumes, colors, or fragrances. These types of ingredients could aggravate your condition.
If you do want to use a scent on your hair, try the natural ingredient lavender, which may help soothe an inflamed scalp. Also look for oils like jojoba, which are known to soothe irritated scalps.
Use of the right shampoo is key to maintaining a healthy head of hair. It is very important to rinse your hair with conditioner or shampoo after a workout or when it’s been exposed to humidity for some time. You can never tell when it will get into your hair, so being prepared will save you lots of trouble down the road.
It’s also important to use conditioner on a regular basis, especially when your hair’s natural oil can become depleted. Use conditioner, which is formulated to help it absorb oil, in order to maintain your natural color.
Along with the proper shampoo and conditioner, your diet should include plenty of fruits and vegetables, protein, hair’s vitamins, and oils and creams. Once you’ve gotten through the diet portion, you’ll see a great improvement in your hair.
In addition to the right type of shampoo and conditioner, your hair care routine should include good moisturizers, although a body mist can also be helpful. Using the right keracare products will help protect your hair from the harmful rays of the sun while nourishing it with the right vitamins and minerals it needs to retain its natural look.
One of the quickest ways to lighten your hair is to use a very light chemical peroxide if you are bleaching it for the first time. It’s important to only use it a couple of times, as it can cause damage to your hair.
However, if you are attempting to darken your hair after a period of time, you can try using it on a daily basis, either before or after you shower. By using this method, you will help to minimize any damage to your hair.
Even if you have never had your hair colored, it’s never too late to consider the best way to protect it. Protecting your hair from the harmful rays of the sun is the only way you can ensure that it will be bleached, but that you will continue to have the same color in the long run.
