If Rapunzel were not locked in a tower and had a salon nearby, she would definitely go crazy. Selecting the perfect hair color for her lustrous hair would probably be the most difficult choice of her life. But no matter what color she picked, one thing is for sure — Rapunzel would soon be in a love-hate relationship with her colored hair like we all are.
We all love coloring our hair crazy but then comes the difficult part of our journey. Taking care of colored hair is always a battle and keeping them shiny and smooth is never easy. But there are a few tricks to make sure that our hair regains its health like before. Try the following tips to turn your damaged hair into the glorious locks they were before. And believe us, even Rapunzel would benefit from these.
Oil without fail
If there is something that can help us revive our hair then that's a good oil massage. Oiling our hair and the scalp is the first step to reviving our hair. Ideally, you should oil your hair at least once a week. It adds the much-needed shine to your colored hair and also protects it from further damage.
You can choose from a host of hair oils like almond oil, argan oil, coconut oil, etc. But we prefer olive oil. What you need to do is just simmer the oil a bit and massage for a good 15 minutes. Follow this up with a steam treatment for half an hour, and wash it off with a mild sulfate-free shampoo.
Mask it up
Dedicating weekends to hair masks with natural ingredients brings the spa right inside your home. Any easy home remedy for smooth hair will work well. Banana hair masks are a great choice. It deeply conditions your hair and keeps the frizz away.
What you need to do for this mask is mash banana and mix it with honey and olive oil. Then apply it all over your hair and keep it for an hour or so. You can wash it off with a mild shampoo and cool water. Use this mask once a week to hydrate and repair your hair from all the damage. Conditioning your hair with such similar natural ingredients improves your hair health like nothing else.
Skip the heat
Letting your hair dry naturally is the easiest way to avoid dry and damaged hair. Blow drying hair after every wash is fatal to your hair health. Instead, just use a towel to dry the excess water and then let it dry on its own.
If you end up blow-drying your hair for straightening or curling, do it only after using a heat protectant on your hair. Also, keep the dryer at least 15 cm away from your hair.
Try these hair care tips for colored hair, and you will never think twice before coloring your hair again.
