- Make sure to keep protein in your hair. You can do hard protein treatments once a month or every other month. Or you can do like I do and use protein based products weekly to help keep some strength into your hair.
- Moisture. Color dries the hair out and can cause unwanted breakage. Deep condition your hair often. When you do deep condition do it with heat i.e steam or a dryer to make sure the conditioner penetrates the hair shaft. Make sure that you are keeping up with moisturizing and sealing your hair. Do hot oil treatments. Anything that aides in keeping moisture in the hair is very beneficial.
- Lay off the heat. Constant heat usage will do nothing to help the health of your hair. I'm not saying don't use it just use it very seldom.
- When getting your hair colored don't go more than 2 shades lighter than your natural hair color. Doing so makes the hair more weaker. (From LaToyaJonesblog.com)
