Do you have dull, dry, and course feeling hair as a result of hair coloring? If you answered yes, then I have a tip that might be able to help with that problem.

Ad

Normally, just after I color, my hair feels and looks great. But after several washings, my hair becomes dull, dry, and course. When it gets to that point, I like to do a natural hot oil treatment on my hair.

I take olive oil and warm it up in the microwave. Then I pour it all over my hair and rub it in. I then take a plastic shower cap and cover my head. Lastly, I take a damp hot towel (towel that has been soaked in really hot water) and place it over the plastic cap on my head. This helps to seal the heat and really moisturize my head. I leave this treatment on my head between 10-15 minutes.

Afterwards, I rinse it all out, normally shampooing twice and then following with conditioner. My hair feels so much better and looks so much better.

Note: I shampoo twice because I used a natural shampoo. If you use a commercial shampoo, you may possibly only have to shampoo once, because the chemicals in the commercial brands may be strong enough to remove the oily feel on your hair. Hope this helps you!

I have colored my hair for many years, I have also had many perms over the years. But now I'm tired of all that, my hair looks dried out. I would like to be healthy again, what should I do? Get it cut short? Let it grow out? I was even thinking of shaving my head, just so my hair would grow back natural and healthy.

Get a trim. On a weekly basis, warm some olive oil and dab it all over your hair. Let it sit in for 20 minutes then shampoo with cool water.

I suggest first trimming 1/4 to 1/2 inch off your hair. Next consider changing up your shampoo I have been using WEN and my hair has never looked or felt more healthy and vibrant in my life. There are many different formulas of WEN so go to www.Chazdean.com to find a formula that works best for your hair. WEN has no sulfates so it is a cleansing conditioner. It does not lather and you do not use conditioner. Just follow instructions on bottle.Much luck to you!!

You may have to just cut off the ends. Use a deep conditioner once a week. Avoid hot tools on your hair.

I believe many of us understand where you are coming from and hope you have quick success in getting your hair back to a natural state.

I also believe that getting a trim (at least every month to six weeks) will give you a good start. Of course, it seems the shorter styles react better to conditioning because most of the hair is fairly new growth. Hair seems to change over a period of time so don't get impatient as it will not happen overnight.

I always found that a good vinegar rinse once in a while helped my hair condition and my scalp as well. Any new product takes using a few times to determine if it is the right thing for your hair so enjoy the waiting time and know that nice clean, healthy hair is in your future.

You are going to have to see a professional about this. This is a chemical burn. After the fact, nothing except try to heal the scalp.

Suggesting using Vitamin E capsules popped open and spread oil on area. This heals wonderfully and is fairly cheap to buy.
