How can I avoid damage after dyeing my hair?

– Amber


Hi Amber,

Water and water-based products can be very tricky with colored treated hair. Water tends to strip color. But you need the moisture more than ever! Always, always, always use color safe shampoos and conditioners! They have ingredients that will not interfere with your color while treating the hair. Protein treatments are also great post color by filing in the gaps of the hair cuticle as well as retaining moisture. A perfect balance of moisturizing and protein based products are essential post color!



Sammy is experienced with all hair types and textures, but specializes in natural curly hair, precision cuts, and weaves/extensions. A master of her craft,  she is constantly working on her own innovative techniques and always pushing the boundaries of hair. She regularly styles hair for fashion shows and photo/video shoots and enjoys doing styles for weddings and other special occasions. Wearable glam that you can play up or play down is her approach to hair designs. Embracing, yet enhancing your natural beauty is her ultimate goal.
