Q: Does colored or relaxed hair need to be given extra care when heat-styling?

Ouidad: Yes. With any chemical treatment your hair will experience some dehydration. So it is essential that everything is done to protect your hair and rebuild it after going through these processes. Regular Deep Treatments are critical to replenish hair’s strength. When conditioning your hair, use a leave-in conditioner for extra protection, or if you use a rinse-off conditioner, you can still leave a portion of it in your hair to help maintain moisture. And use a styling product that can help protect hair from the heat such as my Climate Control Heat & Humidity gel.
