The options are endless! It can be anything from a bun, to a triple chignon updo—you choose and be as creative as you want. Protective styling also promotes low-manipulation so that the hair is free to grow.

5. Get regular trims.

This is especially important with colored hair treated hair because with ends of your hair being porous, they are more vulnerable. Regular trims will keep your ends in a healthier state.

6. Sleep on Satin.

This can be a satin scarf, bonnet or pillowcase. This will help your hair retain the moisture that it needs and protect it from friction and unnecessary tangles, leading to breakage.

7. Heat style as little as possible.

Too much heat styling on color treated hair can cause hair too be dry, fragile, brittle, and as a result breakage will follow.
