The wonders of Hair Colors
It’s no doubt that having a variety of hair color is in these days. It’s not only a single color but you can add up to as many colors that you want in any combination that you think suit you and your personality best.
What’s good about this is that today you can find a lot of hair color varieties. You won’t have a problem looking for cotton candy colors to very light ones as well as metallic colors. You can simply go to the salon and ask the hair dresser to dye your hair with the colors that you want. Another option which gives you more freedom when you can’t find a hairdresser that can do the dye for you would be to color your own hair at home.
You are able to color your hair at home with almost half the price that you pay a professional hairdresser. This works when you want to have your own style to your hair color which you think will require a lot of work and explanation when you talk with a hairdresser. Of course it is easier to control your own hair dyeing activities rather than going back to the hairdresser to fix it.
The situation highly depends though if you have the time and budget to spend on salons or if you are too busy to sit down for an hour or so and is saving money. Either way both choices are awesome and if you trust your skills in hair handling then you can always opt to dye your hair yourself because you can save or you know how to control your hair.
Things to consider when coloring your hair at home
Be simple if it’s your first time. You know that you are simply excited to try out those outrageous colors you found online, however if you have no experience in dyeing your own hair then it is best to stick to the regular styles at the moment. You can always practice later on with help from friends who are willing to let you dye their hair or through special trainings or seminar workshops that you can attend to learn more about the art of hair coloring. If you are into dramatic styles then it is best to visit the parlor, you can even ask them questions and get tips on how you can maintain your hair as well as do’s and don’ts when dyeing. Remember that even though it is fun to experiment with your hair, doing too much can potentially damage it permanently.
Pick just the right shade for your hair. You have to bear in mind that the colors on the bottles of hair dye isn’t the actual colors of the dye when it is applied to your hair. Hair dyes work differently on different colored hair. While they may look as close to the same with lighter hair, darker or black hair can affect the dye color making it look darker than it should. So don’t just go picking out random dye colors because you think it will end up with the exact color with whatever hair shade you have. Always make it a point to choose a shade that is a shade or two lighter than the one you desire. This helps make the dye adjust to your hair color. Making a dye look lighter is easier than making it look darker so choose wisely.
For a first timer, it’s wise to use non permanent or temporary hair colors. You want to try a different shade to your hair but don’t want to risk making it look ridiculous on you. When you have temporary hair colors, the color fades in about a dozen showers with shampoo. Semi permanent ones will wash out in double the dozen shampoos. Those with permanent dye have their hair up to two months and even up to half a year longer. If you don’t want to be stuck with a color you don’t like then it is better to go with non permanent dyes first. You can always change them eventually and without hassle, it does less damage to your hair as well.
Make sure that you organize your things before the dyeing of the hair. It helps to have friends around to assist you. Place your coloring kit nearby and make sure that you have all the things that you need such as containers, gloves, brushes, hair comb, rags, hair pins or a wide clip and old shirts. You don’t need all of them simultaneously, but you would need extra supplies just in case you need to fix some hair into place or wipe some spills on the floor. It really depends on how clean you will work on dyeing or how messy your hair is when you are trying to dye it.
Don’t forget to simply have fun. If you’re stressed that things aren’t going your way just relax, it’s your first time dyeing your own hair and you shouldn’t stress yourself out. Bond together with friends, your siblings or even close cousins over the dyeing session. Practice makes perfect as well as being open to learn new things. Motivate yourself and set a goal that soon enough you will be able to dye your hair the way you wanted it to be.
