Every once in a while, we all have the urge to shake things up a bit when it comes to our looks and style, sometimes changing your hair colour is the perfect fix. However, you’re not the first person to hesitate about coloring your hair, after all the myths about hair colour. Well it’s time to throw them out of the window.
One of the most common myths about hair color is, that it damages your hair. Well, we at Salosa are here to tell you that it’s not entirely true. Coloring your hair does as much [or as little] damage as blow drying and straightening.
We recommend you choose an Ammonia free brand of color, because the Ammonia raises the pH level of hair to a degree where the hair is unable to get back its original pH level after coloring, leaving the cuticle of the hair open and resulting in loss of protein and moisture continuously.
There’s no doubt that coloring your hair is a messy ordeal, but using gloves and wearing an old T-shirt before you color your hair can take away quite a lot of your stress. It takes just 10-15 minutes for the colour to set in, so it’s really not that long when you think about it.
Having said that, if you are not used to coloring your hair at home, it’s advisable to get your hair colored at a salon or opt for a salon’s professional home services. Opt for hair experts who can offer you some valuable advice on color choices and after color care. So book an appointment, and let the experts do what they do best.
We all worry about our hair losing its shine and softness after using hair color. When you use the right hair color products and follow a basic after hair color care routine, you don’t need to worry about that at all.
Always apply hair color on washed and fully dried hair. Also leaving the hair color on for longer than required actually damages the hair. Switch your regular shampoo and conditioner for ones that are specifically made for colored hair, to ensure well protected long lasting colour.
Choosing the wrong shade is one of the most common mistakes people make when colouring their hair. Here’s a quick tip to help you choose the right color for your skin tone. If your skin tone is reddish or burns easily, it’s always recommend you stick to cool shades like browns or beige, warmer colours will bring out the redness in your skin. Another indicator that your hair color isn't working for you is if you tend to look tired or pale after coloring your hair.
