Use Deep_Conditioning Treatments to Smooth and Add Luster to Color_Treated Hair : For extra shine, pamper your color_treated locks once a week with a deep_conditioning treatment. Apply the treatment to damp hair and comb it through from roots to tips. Pull your hair into a bun and pin it into place or wrap it up in a soft towel and leave the treatment in your hair for 30 minutes. When you rinse it out, you’ll be left with softer, shinier hair. Apply Leave_In Treatments to Protect Color_Treated Hair : Using a leave_in conditioning treatment can help detangle your hair and protect it from heat tools, the elements and other damaging forces. Look for leave_in conditioners that are specially formulated to protect color_treated hair. This is particularly important if you frequently use blow dryers, curling or straightening irons or if you spend a lot of time near a heater or in the sun.
