Most of us have wanted to color our hair at one point or another.
Coloring hair is a fun process that leaves us with a fresh, new style to rock. When I dyed my hair for the first time, I was smart enough to use a professional. However, even though I used a professional hair stylist the first time, there were some do’s and don’t that I forgot to acknowledge when it came to coloring my hair the second time.
Anyone that wants to dye their hair needs to know the essential things to do and the critical things to avoid. There are plenty of rules and regulations to follow when coloring hair, mainly to avoid damaging hair.
I have about four fundamental rules about coloring hair that you’ll want to take into consideration. Let’s get into the mini coloring hair bible you’ll need to ensure that you get the best color!
Consult with a Professional
Before deciding to color your hair, you should try to consult with a professional before coloring your hair, especially if you plan to do it yourself.
The professional you consult with should be someone that is an expert in coloring hair. If you want to change from a darker color to a lighter color, you’ll need to consult with a professional. Some coloring methods require a lot of information so that hair doesn’t become damaged.
Consulting with a professional will help you keep your hair healthy as you color it!
Choose the Right Hair Color
Sometimes, the most challenging part of coloring hair is choosing the correct hair color.
There are so many different hair color products out there that it’s sometimes hard to pick just one. If you want a specific hair color, you’ll need to ensure that you make the right choice. It’s important to do your research before purchasing any hair color.
You’ll want to read the ingredients to make sure that you’re not choosing something that is damaging to your hair. Recently, companies have been releasing products that are healthier for hair, and less damaging.
Don’t Color Your Hair If Damaged
One of the most important rules to remember is not to color your hair if it’s damaged in any way.
Damaged hair isn’t strong enough to withstand the chemicals in hair dye. For example, there was a point in time when my hair was dehydrated and brittle. I had hair color that was fading from a previous treatment. Instead of coloring it again to better the color, I decided to let my hair grow out and repair before putting it through another treatment.
Make sure that you’re taking note of how your hair feels and looks.
