Dying your hair can be a whole lot of fun! It can also be therapeutic to some people by giving them the feeling they are getting a new start or transitioning into a new season of life.
Unfortunately, dying your hair isn’t as fun for your hair as it is for you. It has consequences such as your hair thinning, breaking, splitting, and being really frizzy. So, when I asked my hair stylist to take me platinum, she was definitely a little wary…
Thankfully, I’ve had some really great hair stylists over the years who’ve helped me create an arsenal of products to combat the consequences of dyed hair.
Redken pH Bonder Post-Service Perfector Product
Priced at only $15.12 on Amazon (WOAH! Get it here!), this product has been a huge help to my suffering hair! It’s purpose is to maintain the natural pH of your hair, prevent future damages, and work to improve the damage you already have.
It’s recommended you use it once per week after you shampoo. Also, you get a pretty big tube of this stuff for such a low price, there’s no harm in giving it a shot!
Redken’s Extreme Mega Mask
This product is $19.49 on Amazon (Get it here!). It’s tied for my favorite product in this article (the other first-place winner hasn’t been mentioned yet). All you have to do is towel dry your hair after shampooing, apply and leave the mask on for three to five minutes, and then rinse out!
There was a time when my hair literally broke off when I ran my fingers through it. After using a full tube of this mask, my hair was almost back to how healthy it was before I put it through platinum punishment. Please note this product is intended for those who have seriously damaged hair, hence the word ‘extreme’.
A better solution for those of you who like the sound of this product, but aren’t blonde or don’t have terribly damaged hair, is the Color Extend Magnetics Mega Mask.
I used this product all the time when I had red hair and it helped a lot with the damage and fading problems I was having! The usage instructions are the same as above.
Colour Fanatic Multi-Tasking Hair Beautifier
I mentioned this product in one of my previous articles, but it’s so good, I absolutely must bring it back again!
Amazon has this product priced at $25 (Get it here!) and it’s well worth the money. Although they don’t mention this in the name of the product for some reason, it’s actually a 21-in-1 spray. Multi-tasking, gotta love it! All you need to do is spray this on after you shower or bathe, then comb through.
Redken Extreme Length Sealer Product
On Ulta’s website, they have this product priced at $24 (Get it here!). I will admit that it’s expensive for how small the tube is; however, it packs a big punch!
The goal of this product is to seal your split ends and prevent future damage, so this product is not only for those of you with long hair; it’s for damaged hair, in general!
Use the brush on the end of the tube to brush the product onto your dry or damp hair and that’s all there is to it!
I only used one tube of this product and I was shocked at how healthy my hair looked and felt! Yes, there was still a little bit of damage, but in the grand scheme of things, I was very impressed with the results. The normal frizziness and breakable nature of my hair was vastly improved!
Stay Consistent with your Treatments & Products!
Pro tip: While I highly recommend any of these 4 products, using your chosen product consistently is what’s going to help heal your hair the most!
Hopefully this brings a lot of joy to all the hair-dying divas out there! I love ya’ and feel your pain!
