The hottest hair trends for all textures includes hair color this season.  Bright reds, golden browns and everything in between can be seen on straight-haired and curly-haired women alike!  This season it will be hard to resist changing your hair color in today’s aesthetic climate.  However, the use of these chemical treatments could damage the hair and be very difficult to repair, but there is help!  Thankfully, new hair product innovations are available to help support the hair through the chemical treatment process and thereafter.  First, it’s important to understand how chemical altering of the hair works in order to know how best to care for it.

Natural hair color is determined within the cortex, which in found in the middle portion of the hair structure, beneath the exterior cuticle layer.  Chemical treatments need to interact with the cortex in order to alter the color of the hair and therefore require high pH solutions to lift the cuticle shingles.  This process is unnatural to the hair and can be taxing on the strands themselves.  Ultimately, this causes damage within the cortex and cuticle and leaves the strands weak and inconsistent along the hair shaft.  Without proper treatment, the hair could become very dry and could break off.

Improvements can be made through the use of healthy hair products.  Look for organic ingredients like blueberry, chamomile, and arnica flower extracts for example.  These natural ingredients will work the best with the physical composition of the hair.  Knowing that natural hair should use natural products, choosing healthy hair care options are most important for a lifetime of thriving hair care for the future.  These products are perfect for a color-treated hair environment due to the healthy pH of each product that works to keep your hair in a stable homeostasis. On the other hand, high pH products will lift your cuticle layer more than is necesary which causes stress upon the hair.  Here are a few products you can use to improve the condition of your damaged tresses:
