Don’t colour your hair in the spur of the moment. Understand these keys points before you take the plunge.
To choose a hair colour, you first need to understand your skin tone: warm or cool. If your skin glows in bright clothes like royal purple or green then you can pull off more intense colours. Plums, reds and deep burgundies look great with your skin.
Cooler skin tones can go with lighter and paler colours with their hair. Think of butterscotch, caramels honey shades. These shades will play up the peachiness of your complexion and cast a soft glow on your face.
Looking for a drastic change or a whole new look? Don’t get overboard and go all KimK on your hair. Instead take it slow and understand drastic hair colour can't be achieved overnight. Try a subtle shift, if you are a brunet then move to spicy cinnamon and the get more drastic slowly.
It’s a big change for most of us especially if you are looking for more than just a few highlights. So instead of putting your hair through the back and forth of changing colours simply try a wig closest to colour you like. It's a quick, painless way to determine if the shade is right for you.
No pool for at least 2 weeks. Chlorine strips away the hair cuticle, allowing minerals in the water to get into the hair shaft and alter your colour. So steer away from the pool party invite if you’ve just coloured your hair. Other than that, make sure you use the right hair care products. From shampoos, conditioner and serums all should suit coloured hair. This will maintain a healthier longevity of your hair colour.
Your hair always gets a little damaged when colour your hair. Since hair dyes contain hydrogen peroxide which chemically changes the colour of the hair pigment. Make sure you deep condition your hair and moisturise your hair weekly to restore shine. Include hair masks in your weekend haircare routine.
