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.
Choose a cruelty_free brand. Although you may not be able to color your hair with a natural or organic formula, you can make conscious choices when it comes to the treatment of animals and the use of animal_derived ingredients. Manic Panic, which recently celebrated 40 years of making wild hair colors used in both homes and salons, has been cruelty_free for so long that they've actually trademarked the motto, "Tested on celebrities, not animals." And in addition to being free of ammonia, peroxide and PPD, all of the formulas are vegan, prompting PETA2 to name their formulas Best Cruelty_Free Hair Product in several different years.
