    does it just continue helium fusion for a while longer?

    ok i did not know how to explain it so i found you this does it help?- Stars spend the vast majority of their lives on the main sequence. In this phase the stars convert hydrogen into helium in their cores through the nuclear fusion process known as the proton-proton chain. High mass stars may also employ the Carbon-Nitrogen-Oxygen (CNO) cycle to help drive the reactions. Once the hydrogen fuel is spent, however, the core of the star will rapidly collapse and heat up. This causes the outer lays of the star to expand outward due to the increased heat generated in the core. For low and medium mass stars this leads to the creation of a red giant, while high mass stars become red supergiants.
