Hair can be susceptible to damage for a variety of reasons — from environmental exposure to too many topknots or excessive heat styling damage. Caring for damaged hair differs depending on your hair type and texture, but when it comes to color-treated hair — there are specific treatments that should be used to repair your locks.

Why Color Treated Hair Needs Extra TLC

Whether you lighten hair or are depositing color, strands go under a chemical process whenever coloring is involved. Most hair color services involve changing the pH balance of the strands which impacts the cuticle layer. When this happens, hair can become sensitized and more prone to damage and breakage. This is why hair color services should always be left to the professional. In addition to this, color application specialty treatments should be utilized to treat and improve the pH level of the hair to heal the hair before and after any color service.
