5 Tips To Read Before Colouring Your Hair for First Time
Regret is a terrible thing and for some of us, it is a normal occurrence. Well any zany new-age female will tell you that one of the things she never wishes to have to regret is her choice of hairstyle.
So if you are planning on colouring your hair, you might want to keep a few things in mind so you don’t bite your finger in bitter regret:
1. Start with highlights
Colouring your hair for the first time can be a bit like swimming: you learn to swim in the shallow pools before diving into the deep end huh? Same with colouring; try highlights first and see if they are flattering to your complexion and skin tone before you go for the hue all over your head.
2. Try on wigs in that colour
Yeah you should definitely try on coloured wigs that flatter your complexion so you can better decide on whether the color suits your complexion before you apply some colour that would make you look like the bride of Frankenstein or something.
3. Leave the lightening for summer
Apparently, hair lightening is infinitely more damaging because you run the risk of stripping your hair of protective layers. So it is often more advisable to do it in the summer when hair needs less attention and the weather is infinitely milder.
4. Hair products
Yes if you are changing colours you definitely need to make certain your shampoo and conditioner is protein-based as it helps repair the damage to your hair and scalp from the harsh dye chemicals.
5. Feed well
It may sound like a bit of a non sequitur but at this time, you need good food as much as ever. While certain hair products may help repair damage, some foods help protect the hair and repair damage as well. Besides you need to look glowing and healthy with you new look and how would you pull that off if you are on the same diet as a chicken?
