A. Considering that hair color and bleaches are potentially damaging chemicals, the short answer is “yes.” By chemically altering the color or lightness of your hair you break down its cuticle (aka protective) layer leaving strands susceptible to breakage. That said, the condition of your hair prior to a chemical service plays a big role. Talk to your stylist about pre- and post-color care to ensure your hair is receiving the proper nutrients necessary to keep it strong. I recommend weekly deep conditioning treatments, like Regis DESIGNLINE Cashmere Kera-Forte Fortifying Treatment, to prepare and repair your hair between color services.
