After a lot of colouring my hair is dry and straw like! What should I do?

You are here


Last year my hair was dyed black then stripped, then dyed blonde, which went bright orange, then dyed dark brown to cover it.

My hair colour had faded and went a copper colour. Few months ago my sister took to me to a salon where it was dyed brown with red highlights, and cut to shoulder length.

My hair in a very short time has gone copper again. I’m now leaving my hair to grow out, but the hair that is dyed is dry and straw like. What should I do? I use salon conditioner and hair masks but to no effect!

I think you need to keep trying out hair care products until you find the ones that work the best for you. I personally like Kerastase moisture and protein shampoos, conditioners and treatments. When it comes to hair condition, regular trims and patience is the best antidote to dry hair.
