2020 is already here, but dyeing your hair without any harm is still really hard. This step-by-step instruction will help you get a beautiful rich color and keep your hair healthy. Follow these recommendations, and the result will be just perfect.
If you decided to dye your hair at home, first of all, remember four “no” rules.
- Do not dye your hair after perming. You should wait at least 2 weeks in order not to ruin your hair.
- Do not dye your hair if your scalp is not OK (it’s itchy, there are scratches on it, etc).
- Do not add oils, balms and other products to chemical dyes.
- Do not use ready-made hair dye several times, even the next day, even if you kept it in the fridge.
Before dyeing your hair, you have to find out not only the right color that suits you but also the type of hair dye. All hair dyes can be divided into four categories: blonde, physical, chemical and natural. They differ in a variety of color palettes, integrity, depth of penetration into the hair. It is very important to understand which hair dye is right for you:
Blonde hair dyes can lighten your hair in three or more tones. They destroy melanin - natural pigment of the hair.
Chemical dyes change the hair color by the penetration of dye molecules into the hair.
Physical dyes include tinting hair dyes. These are coloring tonics, foams, gels, masks. They create a thin film around each thin hair and don’t react with the hair pigment.
Henna, Basma, chamomile, walnut, onion peel, tea, coffee - these are dyes created by nature. They can‘t drastically change your hair color, as they can only slightly change your hair tone.
