Post Color Hair Care Tips

Article by Garyson Galvin

Whether your hair speak of depth, cool tones, ash or violets, looking after your hair is essential if you want to retain moisture, healthy texture and the sparkle of the color. Various color palettes like gold, copper and reds are warm colors that spread vibrancy and glitter. Blues and violets are cool shades that look extra deep & rich.

Hairs that are colored incorrectly or too frequently become weak, porous, and full of split ends. The pH balance of hair is affected and scalp is also irritated, making hair prone to breakage and easy damage. While the color causes hair to swell and open up the cuticles, it is necessary that your hairdresser prescribes you a good cleanse and conditioning system that helps close the cuticles back, while ensuring that your hair doesn?t lose its natural moisture. Once the cuticles are closed, it is essential that you protect your hair against oxidation.

While the oxygen present in atmosphere causes your hair color to fade, other oxidants from sun, wind, chlorinated or tap water and swimming pools conspire to speed up the fading process, thereby shortening the life span of your hair color. You must stick to after-care products that make colored hair maintenance absolutely easy and simple.

Shampooing the Right Way

A color protective shampoo is made of mild cleansing antioxidants that help neutralize the corrosive action of oxygen in air and Ultra Violet rays. They protect against color stripping effects of sun, retain hair moisture to combat dryness, smooth cuticles and add loads of sheen and luster to add strength and beauty. These shampoos keep hair looking brighter and can be used on auburn, red, brown, violet or even black hair.

Proper Conditioning

Commonly, conditioners used after shampoo rinses are perceived as the sole form of hair conditioners available. They can be categorized as:

? Single dose shots conditioners? Heavy duty masks after shampoo? Leave-in serums? and After shampoo rinses

Shampoos contain surfactant molecules which surround particles of dirt and grease and wash them away from hair. Hair conditioners at the other end work exactly in the opposite manner. They contain positively charged molecules that get attached to negatively charged hair to allow raised cuticle to sit back against hair shaft, giving hair a smooth surface area, natural shine and reflecting light. Thereby, conditioners coat each hair follicle with a protective layer around them.

Protecting Colored Human Hair Wigs

While natural hair need gentle caring, colored human hair wigs and extensions need even milder treatment because they are not armed with natural mechanism to protect them. The key to keep your extensions in good conditions is to use gentle wigs care products.

No matter how tied up your day is, always ensure that you always given enough time to your hair.

Scar Revision for Post Hair Transplant Surgery

Scar Revision for Post Hair Transplant Surgery

Most post hair transplant patients may undergo a scar revision procedure which is the correction or minimizing of the scar that was left in the donor area after a hair transplant by strip procedure. Patients are made aware prior that there will be a scar at the end of the procedure but there are options and ways to minimize its visibility. A few may include surgical techniques like trichophytic closure, follicular unit extraction, or even through Botox injectable treatment.

The most common and simplest way to correct most donor scars is by removing the scar tissue and reclosing the affected area. This alone can help minimize its visibility. On top of that, the surgeon may also opt to use trichophytic closure which is a technique used to allow hair follicles to grow into the scar area further minimizing its visibility.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the process in which hair graft follicles are selectively extracted from the donor area without removing a strip of tissue. This process can also be used to fill in the donor scar. This will then further minimize its visibility or make nearly impossible to see the original scar.

In a recent study, some hair transplant surgeons have began applying Botox injections around the scar area after a procedure to help prevent excess stretching which may help prevent the scar from widening or over stretching. Not all surgeons practice this technique and there is no exact recommendation on the amount of Botox units to be used. The practicing surgeon is solely responsible for the amount of treatment that may be applied and should be kept within safe practice standards at all times.

Scars may take as long as 6 or more months to fully mature or heal. This time issue limits how soon a surgeon can begin any type of scar revision. It is recommended that patients and surgeons wait a minimum of 6 months (maturation period) after hair transplant surgery to even consider surgical scar revision.
