I admit. I admit! My hair has been a tangled mess lately. I’ve been diving more and more, as I am just about an addicted scuba diver loving the wonders of the underwater landscape and wildlife. I told myself at the beginning that I am going to take care of my really bleached hair and will not let it be exposed to saltwater, but here I am, risking all just to enjoy the thing I really love to do. Oh, my hair is just a tangled mess everytime I ascend to land, and it’s a pain to wash it, being all stiff, tangled, and really dry afterwards. My hair has been poofier than usual and a little bit more damaged, so I have been trying for some ways to prevent further hair damage. Oh, the things you do for love!
Going back, colored hair really requires devotion. You take a step further in changing your hair color – it’s like topping each of your existing hair strands with a fresh coat of paint. If you compare it to a newly painted wall, the painted wall is wiped clean with wet cloth every week or so to remove dust, and the paint won’t really change in color unless it’s light, and will just deteriorate with being exposed to light and with it getting old. With your hair, just look at this – you “paint” your hair, and wash it every single day with shampoo. The hair color ( analogous to “paint” ) will look tired with frequent washings, and the once-bright hair color would turn dull in no time if you keep on shampooing it. The culprit ingredient? Surfactants, or sulfates.
