Tips for Coloring Natural Hair
In general, coloring hair can be risky and even more risky if your hair is natural. Luckily as we transition into the Fall, the blondes fade out and we’re forecasting more reds, Auburns and shades of brown, which by the way is a lot safer for your hair. Maintaining healthy hair is a concern that most of us have and your beautician may have all the answers, but in case she doesn’t these are some helpful tips to keep in mind when changing your hair color.
- Cleansing. The night before getting your hair colored be sure to clean it thoroughly and do a deep cleansing treatment to make sure no gunk or grease interferes with the dying composition. Use little to no conditioner the night before getting colored.
- Skip chemicals. Avoid any chemical processes in the weeks leading up to your color treatment such as box dying, highlights, etc. Multiple processing your hair is dangerous and leads to heavy breakage.
- Flat Iron be gone! Keep away from the flat irons and curling irons. Constantly applying heat to your hair does much damage to the follicles and you want your hair to be as healthy as possible when your preparing for your color treatment.
- Avoid stylers. Heavy conditioners, curl agents, gel and whatever else you pile into your hair daily, AVOID IT. As previously stated you want your hair to be clean when it’s be colored otherwise it may be harder for the color to penetrate the strands.
- Limit your washes. After it’s all good and colored, don’t waste your money by washing it all away. Research has shows that washing is the main cause of hair dye loss.
