You will agree that dyeing of hair has now become a major form of Self – Expression.
Below are some things you should know before dyeing your hair.
1. Dyeing Your Hair can change its texture
Dyes can change the natural texture of hair over time.
Certain colour services are harsher on the Hair than others.
Especially those that require longer and more frequent treatments like bleaching.
2. At first you might find it hard to get the colour you want
Based on a general rule of thumb, going from a dark colour to bright colour is more of a journey rather than nailing it on the first service.
The hair has to go through all of its underlying tones to reach the desired level without compromising the integrity of the hair.
3. Rainbow Colours Fade faster than Natural ones
Rainbow-Coloured hair usually demands the most maintenance because it fades faster than traditional hair colours.
4. Stay Away from permanent Dyes
Stay away from permanent dyes which contain Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) or Box Dyes which contain Ammonia or Bleach of any kind.
Anything that claims to lift or lighten your hair also falls into the category of chemical damage.
Light has recently been shed on the effects of Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) on Twitter.
5. Don’t Skip the patch test
It’s important to test a new colour on a small area of your hair before you apply it to your entire head.
If the colour you use is too ashy, your skin might look drab and old.
Be informed that if your skin doesn’t tolerate the dye chemicals, you can experience a scalp reaction.
