Prepare you hair for colour

6 April;  Author: admin

peppermint scrubDo you sometimes find that the colour you choose in salon doesn’t seem to be as vibrant in your hair as you Brocato haircare productsoriginally thought it would be. A lot of the time this can be because your hair has not been prepared correctly for the service it is about to undergo.

A lot of commonly used supermarket brand products contain high levels of Dimethicone (silicon oils), while most shampoo’s use dimethicone as it does help add shine to your hair but when high amounts are used they actually block the cuticle. These silicon oils make your hair feel healthy, soft and silky but it is actually just covering up and sealing away any damage that has been caused to your hair. This excess silicon acts like a barrier on the cuticle preventing it from staining the cortex of the hair hence giving you significantly less time out of your colour. A real easy way to prepare your hair for a colour service is to wash with a clarifying shampoo prior to having your colour applied, this remove this silicon barrier and allow the colour to work correctly.

More information on Silicone oils

Pantene in particular contains a lot Dimethicone as can be seen on the offical MSDS ingredients list, remember when reading an MSDS the higher the products is up the list the higher the content. A lot of cheaper brands of shampoo and conditioner use these silicon oils as it is an easy to acquire product that is extremely cost effective.

One of the most common problems we see as professional stylists is un-manageable de-hydrated hair, This can be caused by environmental factors such as exposure to UVA / UVB (free radicals cause by the Sun and pollutants), swimming in salt/ chlorinated water and in some instances even the changing of seasons. It’s not surprising then with all these natural factors affecting the manageability of your hair, you want to ensure that you are not causing damage by your daily styling routine. With this said the most common cause of de-hydrated hair is by using heat styling tools like ceramic irons and Blow dryers.

Heat appliances work by breaking the hair’s hydrogen bonds , re- organizing it structure and making it sleek and straight when using your ceramic straightening  iron, After the heat breaks the bonds, the cool surrounding air essentially “freezes” the hair into the desired style. The style stays put until the hydrogen (moisture) is re-introduced into your hair. Constantly removing this moisture by opening the cuticle can cause deep cuticle damage (de-hydration).

With the big words and science out of the way  lets look at some ways to help re-hydrate your hair and help make it easier to manage when you style;

Use the correct maintenance products for your hair:

Saturate Intensive moisture treatment- Buy nowThis is becoming a very common problem with so many products being released and marketed towards making hair more manageable. The problem with this is different hair products are designed to address different problems i.e While the Brocato Cloud 9 range re-builds chemical damage in the hair it will not re-hydrate your cuticle, so even though your hair feels soft and nice the underlying damage is still there.

Aloe Barbadenis leaf juice and Vitamin B5 are essential ingredients to re-build the bonds in your hair, improving wet combability and most importantly re-hydrating your hair. Brocato Saturate treatment is specifically formulated with these ingredients to give an immediate surge of moisture to help nourish and restore even the driest hair to good health.

Use Protection when straightening your hair:

hot shapes heat protectant- buy nowMost good ceramic hair straighteners heat up to temperatures up to 210 degrees, this high temperature is what gives your hair straightener the ability to manipulate the hydrogen bonds in your hair and also saves you time by only requiring one pass with the iron. Although this is convenient for us the user, these massive temperatures are very damaging for your hair. Heat protectants like Brocato hot shapes provide slip to allow you to easily straighten and also coats the cuticle of your hair, locking in a bead of moisture to prevent damage from heat (same principles as Teflon on a frying pan). The added benefit of this product is the use of Benzophenone-4 which also acts like sunscreen for your hair protecting it from damaging free radicles that where explained earlier in this post.
