Coloring your hair is fun! It offers you a completely new look of your hair, changed appearance of yourself and fresh feel. Whether you are changing the shade of your hair to a completely new one, adding some streaks of colors for a funkier look or want to hide your gray hair, you make a number of mistakes while dying your locks at home.
No matter how many times you read the instructions, you always make common mistakes that can ruin your hair. So, if you are thinking about making a hair color transformation, look at the following 5 common hair coloring mistakes you need to avoid for the happier change.
#1: Using a Permanent Hair Color:
When you are dying your hair, the first thing that comes to your mind is “May the color last LONG!” we all do! And for this, we end up using the permanent hair colors that are a complete damage to your hair. These permanent hair colors oxidize your hair, making them rough and damaged. The permanent hair colors contain ammonia that is oxidized by hydrogen peroxide to bleach your existing hair color and to last longer. Instead, wish for the semi permanent dye that is lesser harsh to your hair and do not contain ammonia to oxidize your hair. We recommend adore dyes that are friendly to your hair and do not damage your hair like the permanent ones do.
#2: Conditioning Hair before Dying:
We all want our hair dye to give our hair the life it deserves – shine and beauty. That’s why we wash and condition our hair before dying. Washing is okay, but conditioning your locks – A big NO. This is because the conditioner coat each strand of the hair, thereby making it difficult for the dye to adhere and effect. So, do wash your hair before dying, but don’t condition!
#3: Leaving the Dye On Too Long:
Often, we leave the color on the hair long hoping for a darker and vibrant color, ignoring the time limit mentioned in the instructions. But the time limit set for a reason and leaving the color and chemicals too long can damage the hair, giving the poor results. Be sure to wash the color right after the time set is over.
#4: Choosing the Color Based on Model’s Hair Color on the Box:
Well, the most common mistake we do every time we shop for the hair color. You cannot assume that the Model’s hair is dyed with the same color in the box. Moreover, you don’t know her hair color before dying, so the final tint can vary much from that. To choose the dye for your hair, always consult with the hair color experts for her advice.
Avoid these mistakes and you will love the results!
