Changing colour – is it bad for your hair?

Going from a brunette to a redhead or even a blonde to a brunette has never been easier thanks to colouring treatments. However, does changing your appearance have damaging consequences for your hair? We take a closer look.

To answer this question, the first stage consists of making a hair diagnosis. In fact, the more you listen to your hair, the less damaging the colouring treatment will be as you will know how to choose which one is best suited to your locks.

Is your hair healthy? Permanent hair colouring treatments are made for you

Permanent colouring treatments rely on a chemical reaction called oxidation. This allows the hair's cuticles to be open to colour them the desired shade. Of course, this technique should not be taken lightly as it may have damaging effects so it is usually reserved for hair that is in tip-top condition. If in full health, your locks can withstand this change without the risk of being weakened. However, you should still use ultra-nourishing treatments and adopt a regime specifically targeted to coloured hair.

Is your hair damaged? Go for ammonia-free colouring treatments

In your case, forget permanent colouring treatments which are too damaging for your locks. Instead opt for gentler techniques such as the Gloss treatment, which plays with highlights, or plant-based colouring techniques. Although these do not lighten the hair, they have the advantage of being ammonia-free and thus do not excessively damage the hair fibres. However, this is not reason enough to avoid pampering your locks with treatments specifically formulated for coloured hair.

As you can see, changing your colour is not necessarily bad for your hair as long as you choose a technique suited to its nature and you use targeted treatments, such as those from Jean Louis David Color Therapy range to keep your newly coloured hair in tip-top condition.
