Perform CPR on your colour-damaged locks

If you have a love affair with dyeing, bleaching or chemically altering your hair’s natural color, you need to listen up. While you’re free to do whatever you want with those locks of yours, you need to ensure you’re putting as much effort in taking care of your colored hair as you are in achieving and maintaining it. 

It’s no secret that bleaching or dyeing hair can do severe damage. After all, you are literally stripping hair of all its natural pigment and blasting it with a concoction of chemicals!
 
If this sounds like you, keep reading. The BondiBoost Team are here to help revive those color-damaged locks and breathe new life into your hair. 

1. Flood with moisture 
If you have color-damaged hair, you’ll most likely notice that your hair’s texture is dry and porous. Hair’s natural silky, soft texture is disrupted when color-treated as dye strips the strands of their original pigment; they also strip the natural oils and moisture along with it. 

Combat this nasty after-effect by using a shampoo and conditioner that is intensely hydrating and full of natural, essential oils. These hair care products are specially formulated for color-damaged hair and send a potent rush of moisture to the scalp and strands. 

2. Add heat protectant 

Color-treated hair is dry and brittle at the best of times without adding a devastating layer of heat (from hot tools) on it. This direct contact with 400 degree plus temps is the equivalent of ‘frying’ hair and is crippling to already damaged hair. 

But it’s not all bad news. If you do still want to heat-style hair, you can always do so without going out of your way to overtly damage hair. Heat protectants are a fantastic addition to your hair care shelf as they offer a layer of protection between strands and hot tools. 

Heat protectants, like the BondiBoost Heat Protectant Spray, are formulated with key active ingredients (such as quinoa extract), that not only protect hair but also improve the look of existing damage #virtualhighfive!  

3. Use natural dyes
Whether you go to the salon to dye your hair, or aren’t opposed to a cheeky box dye, it’s critical for the health of your hair that you pay attention to the types of chemicals used when switching up your hair’s color. 

Traditional hair dyes can contain potentially toxic and damaging chemicals like ammonia or parabens. These harsh chemicals can cause skin irritation, wreck havoc on the scalp and damage already weak strands. 

Our recommendation? Where you can, opt for a natural or organic hair dye. More natural alternatives are often made with far fewer ingredients and are ammonia-free. These dyes lower the risk of weakening and permanently damaging hair. Trust us, if you can use natural hair dyes when coloring hair, your hair will thank you in the long run.

4. Invest in intensive weekly treatments 

Intensive weekly treatments are a terrific addition to your weekly hair care routine. These products certainly pack-a-punch of nutrient-rich ingredients and are fantastic at deeply moisturizing and rehydrating locks. This is key when trying to revive color-damaged hair, which is so often stripped of natural oils. 

5. Shield hair from the sun 
Because colored hair is stripped of natural pigments, it is more susceptible to attracting the harmful UV rays from the sun. So not only will excessive sun exposure fade colored hair, but it can also further damage and dehydrate hair. Moral of the story? Stay out of the sun as much as possible or, when out, protect with a wide-brimmed hat.
