How to dry and style coloured hair without causing damage.
Use a towel made from non-abrasive fibres such as a micro fibre towel which dries the hair gently and minimises frizz.
To minimise damage, refrain from rough drying the hair. Instead, dry in sections and apply soft gentle strokes from root to tip to avoid snagging and tangles.
Blow-dry hair with a heat protectant like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray, formulated with nourishing marula oil and keratin proteins, which will help to smooth and rebuild damaged strands while also protecting them from up to 230 degrees and delivering up to 72 hours of frizz control.
Now you’re ready to style you can reapply your heat protectant if you’re choosing to curl or straighten your hair. Even while heat styling, try to keep to a low heat setting to lessen the chance of further damage.
So, there you have it – you can now rest assured knowing that your bleach or dyed hair is receiving the best post-colour treatment care with these failsafe tips. Now you can feel confident and in control knowing you’ve protected your hair from potential damage.
