Re: Red colored hair shampoo ruining hair
IMO it is probably not the shampoo, but the fact that it was bleached. Here's how I come to conclude this.
1. Your hair would feel good leaving the salon up to about 36 hours after the service, then you washed it...Right? It takes about that long to close the cuticle. The hair always feels better when the cuticle is opened following a service. You washed it with the let me guess...The red shampoo/cond combo.
2. If so you probably never followed up with Infusium after, which is an instant detangler, so automaticlly helps out. I'm guessing your hair would have even done this with just using your regular shampoo and no conditioner. Would I be right?
I'm not familiar with the product brand you are talking about but I can offer a few tips that will help in the future;
The more often you have the bleached hair filled, eventually the more it will hold on thus helping to prevent excess fading.
Always wash/shower in cooler water as hot opens the cuticle.
Try not to shampoo everyday if poosble.
Consider a follow up Cellophane treatment that gently coats the hair with a transluscent shine. Lasts about 4-6 weeks depending on amout of shampooing. Probably be a 10-15 dollar add on, but also helps prevent the fadage.
Once the hair fading has subsided, do a protien treatment every 10-14 days, to regain strength in your hair(this will definately help with matting up). Make sure it is protien though, not moisture. Make sure you wait at least 2 weeks after color service or the protien treatment will also fade the color somewhat. Always remember, the healthier the hair the less fadage you'll deal with. Hope I helped.
