10 Tips for Colored Hair!!!
Before trying in hair colors whether permanent or semi-permanent it’s important to know about some facts, and care tips for pre- and post-coloring . Let’s take you on a stroll through some of the most important hair colouring tips.
If you wanna color hair at home then remember if you’re going lighter, expect the color to be much warmer than what’s on the box and If you’re going darker, the color is going to show cooler.
Example, ash is flat, red is bright, gold is brassy. Your best bet is to pick shades that are neutral or warm. The softer the name, the softer will be the result..
Try a dying on a little patch of hair first, to know exactly what you will be getting..
What color do you want? Permanent or semi-permanent. A semi-permanent will wash off in 20 shampoos or so on. So be sure to read the color box carefully and it’s formulation as to how long it’s gonna last and decide as per your choice.
Try deep conditioning treatments along with some hair masks,and no chemical for at least 1 month prior to coloring, to avoid excess color damage and also to renew and revitalize your hair before color from the damage it has already suffered due to heat, styling and so on.
Do not shampoo for at least two days before coloring to let the natural oils secreted from scalp to set in. This in turn protects the hair roots from severe color damage.
To avoid mess all over your back, while hair coloring at home, cover your back from shoulder with an old towel, or cloth, or wear a full necked t-shirt which if gets color on it, will not bother you. Apply with a brush and wear gloves.
Use a wide toothed comb, then apply color in sections evenly. Do not dab on color by lumping the mixture here and there.
