Coloring your hairs is perhaps the quickest and most dramatic way to change your look. It is also an excuse to go out and buy a new wardrobe of clothes because you will find that what suited you as a brunette looks rather drab on a new blonde.

Hair Colours

Types of hair dyes:

  • Permanent Tints: Must be mixed with hydrogen peroxide to lift hair colour. The peroxide opens the hair cuticle so that the tint penetrate the cortex and form the colour. Higher the level of peroxide, the faster and lighter the result.
  • Semi Permanent Colours: They don’t actually list the colours. You can either vary the tone within your natural high lights or go darker. Quasi colour contains ethanol amine and 3% peroxide which slightly opens the cuticle. This means the colour can last up to 20 washes and will softly fade as you do shampoo causing no re-growth problems.
  • Semi Permanent Vegetable colours: Contain only vegetable extracts and natural ingredients, so no colour is stripped from your hair. It is similar to henna but it does not coat the hairs. This colour sits on the hairs surface and will wash out after about 8 shampoos.

Semi permanent vs permanent colours: Semi permanent colours give your hair a higher shine and enhances condition, but, they won’t lift natural hair colour. Also, a semi permanent tint will not cover large amount of grey hairs. If a permanent tint is used correctly, you will always achieve a beautiful effect and semi-permanent tints can be used to maintain these permanent treatments adding condition.

Different colouring methods suit different hair styles, so get some expert advice when deciding which one to go.

Skin Tone: Your new hair colour should complement your skin tone. Light skinned people do not look good with very dark hairs because it draws colour out of their skin. Dark, tanned skin does not great when mixed with a one tone blonde, but four or five blonde, chestnut or honey tones look fabulous.

Blonde: If you would love to be blonde, talk the process through your colourist before you go for it. It should be relatively painless on virgin bark brown hair, but if your hair has been permanently tinted then the process will become a long saga. Never attempt this kind of dye job on your own for the first time.

Red: Red is a ultimate shade for colour out for attention. Hair holds on to red-toned pigments well, so going copper top can be easy for most people.

Brown: Brunette is always a safe choice as it suits almost to all girls. Varying the shade with highlights can achieve a huge range of looks. From chocolate brown and bronze shades to honey or dark blonde, combinations of natural tones give incredible shine as darker pigmented tints add condition to your hairs.

Black: This is by far the easiest colour to accomplish because the molecules in black tints are larger and will cover all hairs types very effectively. Caution is needed when using black, as it only tends to look good on people with darker and olive skin tones. It is great for getting the Goth look, but definitely not for your granny.

Hair Damage with colouring: Colouring can damage hairs only if the wrong level of peroxide is used or you are over processing your hair. If you are constantly change your hair colour, especially if you go from blonde to brown and back to blonde, you must regularly use deep conditioning treatments.

Dullness of coloured hairs: Over processing the biggest reason for dullness of coloured hairs. If your hairs are starting to look dull, use semi-permanent colours where the pigments sit on the top of the hair adding plenty of tone and shine.
