Hair color can work in several ways. You can strip it of its natural color using a whitening or bleaching product. You can use a product to cover it and give it a different color. A color to cover the hair after it has been bleached can also change the natural color. By peeling the hair of its color, it also changes the structure of the follicle, causing a drying effect. Dry hair is difficult to comb and eventually sheds easily.
If you are thinking about bleaching your hair, here are some things you should consider before pulling the trigger.
1. Go to a professional.
Yes. You can buy the products and follow the instructions, but a licensed professional will use the color according to your hair type and your color objectives. However, all licensed cosmetologists are not created equal. Like a doctor, stylists have their specialties. Research and find one that stays updated on the products and techniques to color. Your hair will thank you.
2. You may not get the exact color you were looking for.
No two hair follicles are the same. Everyone’s hair responds differently to lightning and color. It is best to go to the classroom with an open mind about your goals of color. A color specialist can tell you how likely it is to get that color.
3. Pay attention to how your hair changes.
You have your style routine and have your product preferences. Bleaching will change all that by making it more delicate. It will also look dry and eventually feel dry as the dyed hair ages. Choose products to replenish moisture. Select shampoos and moisturizing conditioners designed for dyed hair. If you must use a brush, just brush your hair when it is dry. Comb or unravel your hair only while wet. Protect your hair from major damage with an excessive heat style.
4. Invest in quality products.
If you do not manage your hair in the room regularly, ask your stylist who has given you color to recommend products to use at home. These products are likely to be more expensive than usual, but they invest the money to prevent the hair from drying out and peeling off.
When done well, hair color is an excellent way to improve or mitigate your current appearance. Coloring your hair has to result in damaged hair. Find a hair color specialist and follow his advice on hair care products and techniques after color.
