What Hair Dye Really Does to Your Hair

Many of us get our hair colored, and we’re accustomed to the process - but what’s really going on? In this article, we’ll give you a step-by-step at the chemical processes happening and what’s occurs within the hair when you dye it.


First of all, hair dye has ammonia in it. It works by lifting the cuticle to get the hair ready to receive the color. The process usually calls for peroxide, which takes out the current color and further readies the hair for new color. The new color can then bind to the hair.


Keep in mind, the longer the dye sets, the more damage that’s being done to your hair. Oh, and the smell? That’s sulfur being released from your hair when the peroxide reacts with the hair’s proteins.


Any hair dye that promotes itself as ammonia-free will still lift the cuticle. Without the cuticle being lifted, the color wouldn’t stay. So when you reach for something gentler, keep that in mind!


Products like Nano DryFix can help treat this damage from the inside out, which could be a solution if you’re looking to treat your hair after coloring.

Although the Dynamic Hair Repair comes in a small size, a little goes a long way. It has a lightweight oil/liquid consistency that absorbs without residue and the smell is very light, pleasant, and high-end. It instantly made my damaged hair look and feel soft, silky, and tangle-free all day without weighing it down! I am ecstatic that a product at its price can achieve these results. I am very happy I found their products and would recommend it to anyone\ with dry, damaged hair, or frizzy hair. It all works!
