Hi, I'm Jazmayne Chatman, representing gLaM sQuAd LA. And today, I'm going to give you a few tips on how to care for color treated African-American hair. Our client Siobhan here has highlights in her hair, and she also has a relaxer. I wanted to give one of our secrets up to the consumer out there. When someone has a relaxer, which is a chemical service, it would be best, if you just absolutely need color, to add pieces. I would never lift permed hair with bleach, or anything higher than a level 20 developer, because it's definitely not good for the hair. But, if you do decide that you want to perm, excuse me, relax and color your hair at the same time, you want to be mindful to do it two to three weeks in between, never during the same week, or the same day, because you'll definitely experience hair loss, major breakage. A way to care for color treated hair, whether it's damaged, or healthy, you know, just to maintain, you know, the luster of your hair, you would want to use something like leave in conditioners, temporary colors, rinses, cellophanes, things that aid in conditioning and hydrating the hair. Jazzing, and Adore, is one of the most popular ones that consumers can purchase. You've see this at several beauty supplies all around. For a client like miss Siobhan here, Cream Soda would be ideal for her hair, because it's already lifted blond, and you want to stay in the family of the color you have. Unless Siobhan decides she wants to go red or blue, she can take this same type of temporary color, and put it on top of her blond and get, you know, something different without damaging her hair, and she can wash it out after eight to 10 washes, I believe it is. Another way to color for care, I mean, to care for color treated hair, is to do leave in conditioners prior to blow drying or any heat service. Well, a leave in, again, you would put in before a blow dry. It helps hydrate the hair and promote luster, and prevents the hair from breaking or being dried out by the blow dryer's heat. You also can use a oil treatment. Macadamian oil is one them, but there's several lines all across the board, several beauty supplies all across California, or wherever you are. It can be heated up by water. You can heat up boiling water, I mean, boil water, or heat it up in a cup, stick this inside, allow the temperature to increase, and then put it on the scalp of your hair, and then brush it through. You can also follow up or do it by itself, a hair mask, or a shampoo, something that has hydrating or moisturizing in it is ideal for someone whose hair might be damaged or color treated. I'm Jazmayne Chatman, representing gLaM sQuAd LA. And, I just gave you a few tips on how to care for color treated hair.
