Learn how to dye damaged hair the right way

Many women with dry hair cannot live without coloring their hair, and while we realize you would rather fry your ends than reveal those roots, here are some tips to help you effectively dye damaged hair in order to improve the quality and feel of your hair. Many women that color their hair regularly tend to expose their hair to heavy chemicals and high heat settings, which can cause extra damage to their hair, but there are ways to prevent and decrease the amount of damage that you do. One main key to keep in mind when you dye damaged hair is to avoid bleach and peroxide, as these can cause a lot of damage to hair. If you must have your hair lightened, do yourself a favor by doing regular deep conditioning treatments in order to counteract some of the damage.

When purchasing hair dye from the store, use a semi permanent that is free of ammonia. Semi permanent dyes are not as strong as permanent dyes, which are known for causing more damage. Also, do a patch test first to ensure that you will not have an allergic reaction to the product. When you dye damaged hair out of the box, always use the conditioner that comes with the dye, as this is intended to help moisturize and hydrate hair. Also, decrease the amount of heat styling you do from daily to every other day, and get your hair trimmed regularly to remove those damaged ends.

Nice tips but I have to have lighter hair. Not bleach blond, just a blond.

Argan oil is great for when you're dying your hair, especially if you've already got damage. When I colored my hair I conditioned with pro naturals and that helped!
