Is Hair Color the Way to Thicker Hair?
Ever notice that color-treated hair feels thicker? Our friends with fine hair know what we’re talking about! In reality, the hair coloring process does not make hair fibers physically thicker, but it can make hair fibers rougher, which can create the appearance and feel of thicker hair. That’s because the rougher texture causes neighboring hair fibers to “grip” each other rather than slide past each other the way smooth fibers do. This can prevent hair from falling flat and make it seem fuller. Unfortunately, what you’re really feeling is the effects of damaged hair. So we say color away, but remember to restore the health of your hair so you and your hair can live happily ever after.
