For women, hair color is one way of showing our personality and style. Some women do it to try a new look because they need a change. Others refresh their hair color by adding highlights for the summer. Some women color to to cover unwanted gray hair and a maintain younger look. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your hair color.
– Getting Ready For a Color
Getting ready for hair color is important because lack of adequate preparation can damage your hair or cause the color to last for a short time. Don’t wash your hair ahead of time. Plus, wait a while if you have recently colored or used a chemical treatment on your hair. This break allows your hair to recover from the chemicals used in the previous hair color. It also gives you time to deep treat and condition your hair before applying another hair color. You should also give your hair a two-week break if you recently relaxed and/or texturized it.
– Choosing the Right Color
Choosing the right color is a matter of personal taste and preference but you should also consider a number of important factors. These factors include your skin tone, your eye color and the kind of clothes you wear. For example, dark hair colors such as dark red-brown are suitable for people while olive skin while bright hair colors are ideal for those who have a darker skin tone. In addition, people with hazel, green or brown eyes look best in hair colors that have shades of gold, auburn or gold. Finally, people who look good in purple, grey, teal or red clothes should consider neutral tones in hair color such as beige blonde, sandy blonde or chocolate brown.
– Extending the Life of Your Color
You should extend the life of your current hair color because getting a new color is tedious and expensive. You can easily extend your hair color by following these hair color tips. To start with, stay out of the sun when you can because the sun causes your hair color to fade. It also causes hair dehydration. You should also use your curling iron, blow dryer and flat iron less often because the heat from these styling tools causes your hair color to fade.
You can protect your hair color by using special shampoos and conditioners specially made for color treated hair. I recommend PureOlogy products and Diva Curl products so all of these are great for colour treated hair. Fanatic 21 is a great new product from PureOlogy that is great as a primer, protector, perfect the hair. Plus all the PureOlogy shampoo’s and conditioners are guaranteed!
– Finding the Right Colorist
The key to getting an amazing hair color lies with the hair colorist that you choose. You should choose an experienced, trained and highly qualified colorist to get the job done. Finding this kind of colorist is hard but it is not impossible. The best way of finding him or her is by looking at online reviews. Only choose colorists whose clients approve of their work on these online reviews. Referrals from your friends and family to a particular colorist can also be helpful. You should also examine the qualifications and experience your colorist has including pictures of past clients who loved their new hairdo.
