Strength in care! The most important rules for proper care of coloured hair.
Your hair after colouring at home needs a lot of love, so it’s worth knowing how to properly care for it to enjoy the beautiful effect for longer! Here are some rules worth implementing to keep your dyed hair in good condition.
Start with deep nourishment
And so it happened! You have your dream hair shade, but what next? If you dyed your hair according to the instructions included with the dye and followed the rules for proper hair colouring at home, the condition of your hair should not change. However, sometimes, especially after bleaching, our strands may become dry and delicate. It is then worth taking care of deep nourishment and moisturisation of the hair, for example with a keratin mask from the Joanna Keratin line, whose active ingredients penetrate deep into the hair, strengthening it and filling in any gaps. Try to repeat the moisturising treatment at least once a week to keep your hair in excellent condition, not only shortly after colouring.
Keep the colour longer
Beautiful, long-lasting colour will not stay on your hair for long if you do not take proper care of it. One of the basic ways to maintain the colour between subsequent dyeing treatments is to use toning shampoos, such as the Joanna Ultra Color line shampoos, which, thanks to pigments in their formula, gently tone the hair with each wash. Simple, right? If you want to additionally enhance the colouring effect, you can also use other colouring products, such as:
- express colouring conditioners that will refresh your colour in just 3 minutes, and the effect will last up to 3-4 washes
- conditioners that, in addition to pigments, also contain valuable nutrients and hair moisturising ingredients
- rinses that instantly tone your hair and can be combined with your favourite hair care routine
- pigments that provide a more intense effect and freedom of use alone or in combination with your favourite mask or shampoo
- shampoos, as an excellent way to maintain the colouring effect or change the shade of your hair between subsequent treatments.
There is strength in PEH balance!
Your hair likes balance, especially after dyeing! That’s why knowing their porosity and conscious care maintaining the balance between proteins, humectants and emollients is a must-have if you want to enjoy the colouring effect for a longer time.
Sounds complicated? Fortunately, you don’t have to study cosmetology to learn how to take care of your hair. Joanna has created a special line dedicated to this care method – PEHology, in which you will find as many as 11 different products tailored to the individual needs of your hair. In addition to the appropriate shampoo and conditioners, it is worth using a serum that weighs the ends down and protects them. We especially recommend this last step in hair care to newly blonde women whose hair is particularly susceptible to dryness.
Protect your hair all year round
To enjoy a beautiful hairstyle and the effects of home hair colouring for longer, make sure that you protect them not only while showering. Changing weather, UV radiation, styling treatments – all these factors affect the condition of our hair every day, so remember to use heat protection when drying and styling your hair using a curling iron or straightener. A convenient solution would be, for example, a thermo-protective spray from the Niezłe Ziółko line, which will protect your hair against the heat of devices and add shine to your strands. Thicker and more dense hair will certainly appreciate 2-in-1 products which will not only protect the hair against the harmful effects of high temperatures, but also smooth and weigh it down.
The sun’s rays also affect our hair, so treat sun protection of your hair in the same way as protection of your face and body skin. Use appropriate cosmetics containing UV filters and thermal protective mists that will effectively protect your hair against drying and fading under the influence of the sun. But that’s not all, be sure to wear hats, caps and headscarves and protect your hair 100%!
Coloured hair care does not have to be tedious and complicated. Your hair will love, above all, hydration and protection against external factors. With the help of appropriate products, you can easily take care of their condition and ensure that the colouring effects will be pleasing to the eye for looooong weeks to come!
