The ingredients used in hair colors are really harmful for our hair. The main constituent used in color is ammonia, which give sharp pungent smell. So it's advise to avoid color and instead use natural color like Henna to color hair.lover

The two main contents of long lasting hair color are; hydrogen peroxide and ammonia. There are shampoos that wash-in color but they don't last very long.

How to repair damaged hair

Lock In to Ways to Repair Damaged Hairdamagedhair.jpgAnyone who has dry, damaged hair knows just how hard it can be to find effective and affordable products to fix the problem. With the popularity of hair colors, perms, extensions, and other harsh chemical treatments, as well as the current hair styles that call for using flat irons or hot rollers to perfect a certain look, having damaged hair is a problem that plagues so many women and yet there are still no perfect solutions. Avoiding damaging hair care practices, like having chemical treatments or using hot rollers, curling irons, and blow dryers in the first place is the best way to keep your hair healthy, but once the damage is done there are still products that can help you repair and restore your hair. Whether you need a deep conditioner, an oil treatment, a defrizzer, or a hair mask, help is on the way.

Start repairing your damaged hair right away!

How to Grow Out Your Damaged HairIf your hair has been truly wrecked, sometimes the best thing to do is have professional advice and then cut off as much damaged hair and split ends as possible so you can start fresh. You know when to cut off your hair: it's when you'd rather be bald than look the way you do now! A super-short haircut can be appealing if you go to someone who will shape the cut to your face. Understanding face shape is the difference between a ten dollar, ten minute hair cut and an admittedly more expensive, hopefully much nicer one.

Remedies for Dry, Damaged HairHome remedies for "hair gone wrong" include restoration of moisture to hair not too severely damaged and making way for regrowth. In the case of hair ruined by hot rollers or straightening, you may have a few inches of relatively undamaged hair on the scalp. Get a medium-severe haircut to get rid of the frizzled hair tips, or leave the damage right where it is and concentrate on protecting the good hair. Leave off the chemicals, avoid the blow dryer and other heated hair appliances, and use gentle shampoo as infrequently as you dare. Shampoo strips oils from your hair, making it more brittle, so if you don't really need to shampoo, cut it down to once a week or so. And forget vitamins in shampoo: they don't work. You can try taking vitamins internally to keep your hair strong as a side effect of your increased health, but there aren't any vitamins that help when applied externally.

Home Deep Conditioning: Over the Counter & Natural ProductsBuy deep conditioner hot oil products at the drugstore, or go the homemade route for less money. Hot oil treatments (actually, the oil is warm, not hot), work by starting with dampened hair, softening the cuticle and locking in the water by sealing the outside of the hair with a coating of oil. You can make your hair drier by using hot oil if you then go and wash it all out with a harsh shampoo. When you give yourself a moisturizing hair treatment, leave it on overnight and then wash it with a gentle shampoo the next day.

Deep conditioning home remedies and recipes for fried hair include mayonnaise, avocado and egg, but some of us prefer to eat our salads, not wear them. You can get the job done using any cooking oil (but peanut oil will make you smell peanutty!) Coconut suntan oil is a favorite, and it smells terrific, too. Rinse your hair with warm water, apply the oil from the palm of your hand, working it into your hair. Now comes the warm part: wrap your head in a towel or a plastic hair bag that comes with hair color kits, or in some cling wrap, and sit around in it as long as you can. Cover your pillow with a safety-pinned towel and sleep on it overnight. Next day, use a moisturizing or baby shampoo to wash out the greasiness.

If your hair has been ruined from color treatments, consider switching to a repairing henna, which has been used for centuries to keep hair shiny and bright. Unlike permanent colors, henna has no ammonia to strip your hair; the henna sits on the outside of the hair shaft, so it can't do any damage. But test it first; some people are allergic to this all-natural herb!

Can you wash your hair before applying texturizer

Hello! Oh please never wash your hair before you apply any chemical services to your scalp. The pores along your scalp remain open after washing your hair (think of it like your pores on your face opening when they are treated with water) in result any chemicals will cause burning across your head.

Best wishes with your upcoming texturizer, hope your hair turns out wonderfully and your scalp can remain happy too!

I use redken brandy hair color. What other brands have a color close to brandy?

That's such a subjective issue that I think it best if you go to a health and beauty shop and research the alternatives. Due to chemical studies done recently, many companies have changed their hair color chemical compounds/dyes and just going on the "name" of a color may not "match" what you are seeking. You really have to see the actual color samples to make a choice that is satisfactory to you.Best wishes.

I'm using Goldwell 12BG which says 2+1 on the box. Is the formula 2 oz. of developer/peroxide to1 oz. of toner or is it 2 oz. of toner to 1 oz. of developer/peroxide and should I use 20% or 30%...

Ratio is always developer to color, so a 2:1 is 2 parts developer to 1 part color. Example mixture is 40 ml developer to 20 ml color.

30 vol gives you better control and less damage to your hair. If you have VERY dark hair (level 5/4 or below), you need to pre-lift and then apply the color. It sounds like you're not a trained stylist, so I don't recommend 40 vol as it lifts too fast for most people to get an even application, especially if you're applying it to your own head (since it takes longer to do generally speaking).

You can work in sections to preserve color and get a more even application. Simply mix enough color for one section at at time, apply and process, then rinse ONLY that section with water to stop the chemical process. Repeat on all other sections. Good luck!

Can you dye your hair after you get brazilian hair straightening?

It is not recommended to apply more than one chemical process to your hair, since it is very damaging. But when working in the salon, I would suggest that the client wait 2 weeks before having another chemical process done (perming or coloring) if that was what the client wanted.

So yes you can, but it may be very damaging to your hair.

Are hair dyes safe?

Chemicals used in making hair dyes are not safe, some of them may even cause cancer. So in my opinion one should avoid it as far as possible.
