Hair Color Tips

Beautiful Woman Luxury MakeupWe all know how a new hair color can completely transform your look. So the best gift you can give yourself this month is to try out a dramatic hair color. But before you rush into dyeing your hair, we’ve got a few tips to help you get started.

  1. Identify your shade

What’s your natural hair color? Identify your natural hue because it will help you to choose your most desired shade. If you are looking to play it safe, choose a hair color that blends perfectly with your natural color so that the look doesn’t look shabby when the hair grows.

  1. Try a wig first

If you are planning on having a dramatic hair color, why not try on a wig and see how you’ll look in it. Color that is more than three shades lighter or darker than your natural shade can make you look really different. So before you decide to dye your hair pink, try on a wig and see if you’ll like what you see.

  1. Buy enough boxes of dye

There’s nothing more disappointing than hair color that runs out when your look is not yet done. It’s better to have too much hair dye than realize it’s too little when you are almost halfway through. The number of boxes of dye you will need will depend on the volume of your hair and how much you want colored.


  1. Find the perfect formula for your hair

Hair coloring is as simple as you think. If you have thick or curly hair, look for a dye that has a gel or liquid formula. This kind of dye will provide full coverage and it is easy to ensure it is evenly spread throughout your hair. Be careful about the ingredients of a dye you are going to use especially if you have sensitive skin. The last thing you want is to suffer skin irritation after dyeing your hair.

  1. Protect your hair against damage

Hair color usually exposes your hair to some damage. This is because most dyes contain hydrogen peroxide which is very harsh and is what changes the color of the hair pigment. To prevent this damage, you need to use a deep conditioning treatment as well or a renewal mask to rejuvenate the hair and restore its shine. Make sure you use a moisturizing treatment or mask because the hair is likely to get damaged when it’s dry and brittle. Avoid exposing your hair to extreme heat after applying the dye.
