Here are some points which you can keep in mind while taking care of your colored hair at home. To know more, you can also read our blog - Make Your Hair Color Last Longer.

First off, oil

There’s no shortcut to having healthy hair. Oiling your hair even when it’s colored is a must. Coconut oil, Almond oil and Sesame oil work best for colored hair, you can use your regular hair oil as well. The oils will help in countering side effects of bleaching such as frizz and hair dryness. You can heat up the required amount of oil and massage it into your scalp. Run your fingers through your hair to apply the oil evenly on your strands as well. This will help in taming the frizz especially if you have curly or wavy hair.

Pamper your hair

Everyone deserves a break. Take some time out for yourself and your hair too and treat them with a soothing hair mask treatment. You can also opt for deep conditioning to smoothen and add some extra luster to those bright and multi-hued hair. Apply the mask evenly and use a comb to detangle your hair, tie up your hair and leave it in for 30 minutes before rinsing it off. In case your hair snaps and breaks easily or feels super dry, you need to treat it with moisture and protein. You can seek professional help for a protein treatment. 

The Condition is to not skip conditioner

Someone’s heart might skip a beat when they see your gorgeous new look but for that you need to ensure that you never skip conditioner on your wash days. The Paradyes Color Care Conditioner ensures that your color doesn’t bleed and protects the texture of your hair. It also helps in retaining the shine and smoothness of your beautiful tresses. So trust us when we say that there is no going back to your old products once you get your hands onto this magical conditioner. 

Style it safe

We know you wanna style your hair. But heating tools cannot be your best friends when it comes to styling colored hair. Don’t worry though, we’ve got a suggestion for this situation. All you need to do is apply a heat protectant spray or use a leave-in treatment before you go ahead and curl, crimp or straighten those hair to get your dream look. But stay cautious, cos nothing can really prevent your hair from getting damaged due to the heat of the styling tools. And you know what? We think you can just ace your natural hair as good as the styled ones. So why not just let those lovely locks go with the flow as they are? *wink wink*

Trim trim and trim

Okay but don’t cut ‘em all off! If you're a beginner, we’d say you start with bleaching your tips before moving onto the roots. So, if after bleaching and coloring, your hair feels damaged and you feel like there is no way home… to what it was before, you can easily get the colored portion trimmed. Dead ends won’t hold up the color properly and it’ll only fade faster. It’s best to get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair shiny and healthy. 

Mom’s reminder

We know you’ve heard it too many times already, but you gotta focus on your diet if you wish to keep your hair healthy and fresh. Make sure your hair is well nourished with Vitamin E and Omega-3. If your hair grows healthy from the roots itself, then you won’t have to worry much about the damage caused by bleaching. You can also add some nuts and supplements to your diet. Vitamin C helps in keeping the blood vessels on your scalp healthy. Eat foods like Salmon, Carrots, Egg yolks and sardines for a biotin boost.

We know one can’t keep up with so many hair care tips. But, even if you’re able to pull off half of these, you’ll be good to go with your ever so stunning colored hair. Go on, just get started with creating your own hair care routine and make sure you follow it!
