Gyaru hair requires a lot of coloring, lightening, backcombing, and hot tools.
If you lighten or color your hair a lot, you probably notice how dry and damaged your
hair is, especially if you use box colors such as palty. That is because your hair has
amino acids and hair color products and lighteners contain ammonia. Amino acids and ammonia are both a positive energy, so they repel each other and the amino acids leave the hair, resulting in dry hair. Box colors like palty, l'oriel, and other brands have even more ammonia than professional colors, this is to blow open the cuticle and place the large color molecules in the hair. Box colors also do not close the cuticle after the process is complete, leaving you hair in a extremely dry and rough state. To have healthy hair you are going to need a product or products to replace those amino acids that have been lost. A product which contains protiens that will help strengthen and moisturize.
I have gathered some information on products that I use daily at Paul Mitchell the School Indianapolis. I'm not saying you should only use these products, because not everyone has access to them and also some may prefer a different brand. I suggest these ones only because I know them best above any other professional products.
