In the desire to change their hair, some people end up mixing different types of chemicals in their hair. However, some of them are not compatible with each other and this can bring serious risks. “Most chemicals are compatible, but it depends on the state of hair treatment. The more resected, the less chemistry can be done. Normally, reflexes and relaxation are not compatible, but they can be done”, explains Marcela Lippi, hair stylist and specialist in capillary therapy at the Brazilian Academy of Tricology.

extra care

The biggest problem with coloring with other chemicals happens because bleaching the hair leaves the fios very weak. “Lack of care will make the hair dry and fade. It is very important to understand that, in order to have vibrant colors, we have a chemistry behind the color, so, always a lot of treatment”, explains the visagist Lilian Gonçalves.

It is necessary to be aware that certain chemicals really should not be mixed with coloring. According to hair stylist Eliane Pavini, permanent straightening done with ammonium thioglycolate, for example, is very harmful for hairbecause, depending on the concentration of the product, it can lead to a chemical breakdown of the threads.

“Progressive has a very low pH and, for the vibrant colors, discoloration with a very high pH is necessary. Already with relaxation, as the thread changes making a strong chemistry, a chemical breakdown can occur. So, they cannot be done on the same day”, warns Marcela Lippi.

Effects of mixing chemicals

One chemical does not necessarily eliminate the other, but it is necessary to be extra careful and aware that one can interfere with the result of the other. “Nowadays, when the person does progressive, depending on the product used, in many cases, the coloring does not even penetrate the hair strands. hairbecause the progressive creates a protective layer on the hair”, explains Eliane Pavini.

According to the hairstylist, in the case of relaxation, made with ammonium thioglycolate, it is more appropriate to do a semi-permanent coloring. In that case, she suggests using a semi-color without ammonia.

Chemistry maintenance

Use the correct products

It is also important to use shampoo and conditioner suitable for your hair type. “It should be a shampoo that gently cleans and strengthens the hair fiber, moisturizing and protecting the strands from breakage”, says Eliane Pavine.

According to her, the ideal thing is for this product to protect the hair fiber and prevent the hair from tangling when combing. “It must also have keratin, which protects the wire structure, and vitamin B5, which penetrates deep within the hair shaft, absorbs moisture and adds shine to the hair”, recommends the hair stylist. The professional adds that the same active principles of the shampoo must also be present in the conditioner to protect the wires.

The safest way to change your look is always to talk to the professional who will take care of your hair, talk about the chemicals you have in your hair and together decide what can be done. “After coloring, a week later, it is ideal to do a hydration professional”, suggests Eliane Pavine.

To avoid dryness, she recommends cut the ends of the hair every two or three months, at the most, in addition to hydrating the strands at the beauty salon and at home, with products suitable for the hair type and always evaluated by a professional.
