My hair needs to be colored, but it is so dry that I am afraid color might damage it too much. Should I dye it anyway?
If you have a notion that your hair is too dry for chemical treatment, you're probably right. However, there are a few things you can try to get your hair in shape for color treatment. Before coloring, precondition it with a deep-penetrating, moisturizing treatment or protein treatment such as Keragenics Revitalizing Protein Pac. After this application, consult a reputable, professional colorist about your options. Pick the appropriate type of coloring, such as semi-permanent, to cover gray, or permanent hair color to lighten your own color and add shine. You can also use highlights or lowlights to add dimension and shine without compromising the strength of your hair. Make sure the hair is strand-tested before applying any coloring product.
