When it comes to coloring your strands, it is always exciting and new. But the upkeep is tiring and definitely, a lot of work! Not taking the proper care of colored hair may result in hair breakage, loss of quality amongst a lot of other things. But, hair dye is a great way to conceal your grays, experiment with trendy colors and overall change your look. There is no harm in using hair dye, as long as you’re using the right products and being mindful of the health of your hair. If you’re looking to drastically switch up your color, you need to be ready to do some upkeep.

We got in touch with Venetia to share with us her tips and tricks for keeping her strands healthy.
“I color my hair because it gives me this new sense of confidence. Though I must agree that chemical coloring is hard on my strands, and it does take my maximum efforts to make sure I am taking the best care of my hair before and after a salon appointment.”
Your hair may be a gorgeous new shade, but if you don’t do regular upkeep you can say goodbye to your shine and vibrancy. To help protect both my hair and hair color, I stand by Dove Damage Therapy Intensive Repair Shampoo & Conditioner. It keeps my hair soft and manageable even when it’s at its most dry. With the use of this product, I’ve said goodbye to bad hair days.
Apply a serum onto freshly cleansed hair before you style it, the serum leaves your hair touchably soft and helps to remove any knots. I use the Livon Moroccan Silk Serum because it has the best smell and a non-sticky formula. A weekly DIY hair mask for colored hair is always essential – I warm up coconut oil for a minute or two and then add hibiscus petals or curry leaves to it. Try it out and you can thank me later! :p
