Organic hair colors are about as real as organic gasoline.
Made of a host of leftovers not needed in fuel & manufacturing, haircolor is the grand recipient of the garbage refined OUT of the sludge.
The most dangerous are the tints that are packaged as safe. This leads to false security.
Dealing with this devil formula is not a necessary evil, yet the payoffs of beauty win out for most over the hazards.
THE FIRST secret to saving the dyes left on the hair: Do not shampoo again for the first 72 hours. The oxidation process must complete. The keratins that were blown out by the hydrogen peroxide, ammonia (and other psuedo-named cuticle killers to make you think it’s safe) must be allowed to settle down. This alone will help the strength of the hair.
THE SECOND secret is to eliminate heat. Do not heat the color-treated hair if possible. This further “knocks” the cuticle around, and the pigments that are trying to hold onto the hair. A LARGE portion of color is lost the very first moment from styling with heat.
THE THIRD secret is to only put color on the ends if it is off-color or horribly faded. Only tint the new hair. If you must color the ends, reduce the chemical strength with appropriate buffers before applying. (Off-label instructions…click here).
