Colored Hair Tips: Rinse Brilliance and Color Guard for Your Hair

The brilliance of freshly colored hair is amazing. The rich deep hues and the intense glow are simply magnificent. When you know how to care for dyed hair, you can enjoy the shimmering beauty for quite a while. A suitable rinse for color-treated hair keeps the color pigments in the hair longer and it also protects from bleaching UV rays. The rinses improve the hair structure to boot.

Artificial pigments show the unfortunate tendency to disappear from the hair. This is true for color-rinses, semi-permanent and even (almost) permanent color. Color rinses only coat the hair with a thin color film with quickly disappearing pigments. More intense coloring or coloring with 'permanent' color places pigments inside the hair shaft. Naturally, these well-placed pigments have more staying power. The right care for color hair boosts this staying power.

 

Aside from using a very gentle, color-maintaining shampoo, a special rinse is an absolute necessity for color-treated hair care. The rinse keeps the cuticles in the proper smooth configuration around the hair shaft. This seals the pigments inside the hair shaft. You can expect the same helpful effect from conditioning hair care ingredients like proteins from the leaves of the Moringa tree, amaranth oil, apricot kernel and ultra-light micro-oils, which do not weigh the hair down. The rinses also deliver protection against the bleaching effect of UV rays and very reactive oxidizing free radicals. Both, UV rays and radicals damage hair.

Rinses for Blonde Colored Hair Care

Blonde dyed hair needs extra special color-treated hair care compared to other colors, in particular if your hair is bleached several shades lighter than your natural color. This kind of intense lightening requires removing the darker natural pigments from the hair core. The hair needs to be made permeable for pigments in this process. Of course, there are rinses to help you ameliorate this bleaching damage as well. Special blonde conditioners are a great colored hair tip, providing bleached hair with especially radiant golden pigments without a yellow tinge. Liquid hair components like keratin are added to the conditioner to replenish the processed hair structure and repair the fine fissures and weak points in the hair after bleaching. The result is silken rather than dull and brittle blonde hair.

There is a Conditioner for all Colored Hair Care Needs

Hair conditioners come in many different formulations, all offering a solution for how to care for your colored hair. Every conditioner serves a special hair care need and is adapted to the time you can spend on nurturing your hair. The classic conditioner is applied after shampooing. It is massaged into the hair and rinsed out after a minute or two. Rinsing out these products is important because residual ingredients would weigh your hair down and give it a dull appearance. It is important to apply the conditioner where it is needed the most, i.e. at the hair ends not near the roots. The express hair conditioner in spray form is ideal for all who are pressed for time but still want to care for their colored hair. The leave-in spray is lighter formulated but still does a mighty job nourishing your hair. Shake the spray can well so that all ingredients mix well before spraying. Dependent on the length of your hair, five to ten pumping actions are sufficient for best results. Work the spray repair application through your hair before styling your hair as usual.
