View Full Version : Preventing Hair Dye Damage

January 13th, 2011, 03:06 AM

We all know that some hair dyes contain ammonia and peroxide. and they are the reason for hair damage.

peroxide makes the free radicals that damage hair...this can be solved with coconut oil (according to ktani). also, hydrogen peroxide build up causes gray hair growth...

what about ammonia?..

ammonia opens the hair cuticle, doesn't it?
vinegar is highly aciditic...after a bit of googling, i found out that it can remove buildup and also it can CLOSE the cuticle...

so to prevent all types of damage from hair dye...
1- we use vinegar after hair dying. to remove the peroxide buildup + close the cuticle
2- before dying hair, coconut oil must be used.

what do you think?

Vinegar doesn't remove build-up, it's a common misconception. I think anything done after the hair color is done, won't prevent, just nourish the hair after. If there was damage done, it's already done. The strand need to swell to take the color (I assume you're talking permanent hair dyes), it comes back to normal after the process is done. Not everybody has damaged hair after, a tad weaker than their own virgin hair? Sure.
