Whether it’s our hair or our wardrobe, adding a pop of color can change our life. If you’re in a rut, tired of the same boring style or want to step outside the box and try something new, don’t be afraid to color your hair. We understand adding color to your hair is a big step for you. You always question how it’s going to look and how it will affect your usual hair routine. Good news ladies, coloring your hair can be easy. Relieve some of the stress by taking baby steps or “crawling” instead of walking into something you know nothing about:
- The most IMPORTANT thing to do before you color your hair is RESEARCH. RESEARCH. RESEARCH!!!
- Instead of coloring your entire head of hair try highlights or an ombre. If you’re content with the color then you can color your entire head the next time around.
- Use a semi-permanent hair color or a rinse. The beauty of coloring your hair with temporary color is that it’ll wash out in a few weeks. If you like the color, make it permanent. If you’re not feeling it then buy a semi-permanent color in another color and repeat the process.
- Color your hair extensions before you color your natural hair. We know you spend a lot of money on your extensions and you don’t want to ruin them with a color that’s not right for you. The best thing to do is to take your hair to a professional colorist. Have the professional perform the strand test. The strand test will show you how the rest of the bundle will look as far as color and texture after chemically processing the hair.
- Coloring your hair does require more maintenance than virgin tone hair. It is important to use sulfate free shampoos and conditioners for colored hair. Be sure to keep your hair hydrated. Color hair dries out more easily than natural hair. Remember, the lighter the color, the more maintenance and upkeep you’ll have to do. Auburn hair is going to require less maintenance than platinum blonde hair.
