5 Tips to Care For Chemically Treated Hair

All girls fancy those straight tresses or colored hair that look stunning with every outfit, making you stand apart from the crowd and grabbing all the eyeballs, for all the good reasons of course. However, only a few are blessed to be born with straight hair with a touch of brown or blonde color. For others, they have to arrange salon appointments to get their dream hair. They have to get chemical treatment for those tresses. Yes, these chemicals can give you what you always wished for but there are various side effects too that you can face if you don't take proper care of them. That is why you need to ensure that you follow proper directions and tips to maintain the quality of your hair and keep your scalp nourished. You need to use the best ayurvedic shampoo, condition them frequently, and avoid several products. If you are also planning hair coloring, permanent smoothening or have already done that, then here are 5 tips that you must follow to avoid hair damage:

Avoid heating products

If you have recently undergone a chemical treatment of any sort, then other heating products, such as a dryer, tongs, straighteners are a big NO for you. Avoid using them as long as you can as these products exude heat which is not good for your hair. Also, never wash your hair with hot water as it can make your scalp and tresses dry and rough.

Put oil for better blood circulation

Before you use natural hair shampoo, apply oil and massage thoroughly a night before. Many girls have a misconception that oiling is not suitable for chemically colored or smoothened hair. But this is not true at all. On the contrary, oil massage boosts blood circulation and provide your scalp with necessary moisture and nourishment that keep your hair strong and healthy.

Protect from sun & pollution

Our hair is vulnerable to sun and its harsh rays just like our skin. And the way you cover and protect your skin with scarf and sun block cream, you need to secure your tresses too. So, whenever you go out in the sun, remember to carry a hat or scarf that can keep the rays from your hair. Moreover, it will also protect the scalp from dust and pollution that can have an adverse effect on your hair.

Shampoo regularly

Here is an important tip for all the naturally treated hair. You should never use shampoo frequently, say every day as it can take off the natural oil present. Prefer twice a week and opt for ayurvedic shampoo for the best results. You can also pick the best herbal shampoo made with natural ingredients that are known for its healing properties.

Conditioning is a must

After you have washed your hair with the best organic shampoo, apply conditioner or hair mask to keep them smooth and soft. Normally, when you go through a chemical process for hair, they become rough and dry. To avoid this situation, you need to condition them regularly and keep it for at least 5-7 minutes so that they can absorb all the required nourishment.

All these tips will help you take care of your Chemically Treated Hairs. But if you are still facing Hair loss, then you can give Hair transplant a try. There are many clinics who can duplicate your current hair system. Though, this should be your last resort. I am ending this article and hoping that you will take good care of your hairs.
