Care For Your Hair While Colouring It

Care For Your Hair While Colouring It
When we colour our hair at home, we are always searching for the best and safest hair colour. But with that we must take all the possible precautions before and after colouring our hair. This is a list of must do’s before and after colouring our hair:







 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. Quality & quantity

Make sure you pick up the right product for yourself. When you are browsing through a wide range of hair care products, it’s the quality that really matters. Selection of the safest hair colour can give you the best results. With that don’t forget to understand the amount of hair colour needed. Longer hair would need more hair colour. Thus prep accordingly.


2. Strengthen your hair to be healthier

If you have split ends make sure to get rid of them. Pamper yourself to a relaxing hair spa treatment. Avoid the permanent straightening and the use of too many chemicals. Oil and nourish your hair to overcome dryness.


3. Read the instructions

Be well versed with all the dos and don’ts of the product before actually using it. Read and re read the instructions to be completely sure. Understand how to use the product to avoid unwanted risks. Moreover, don’t forget to understand which hair colour that suits you the most.


4. Test it

Before actually using the product test it on a strand of your hair. This will allow you to understand how the shade actually looks on you. Don’t forget to test the result in natural light too.

 

A skin hypersensitivity test is a must before using hair colour.

  • Clean a small area of the skin behind the ear or inner surface of forearm using soap and water
  • Mix a small quantity of the colour and developer and apply to the cleaned area
  • Let it be on for 48 hours, if there is no reaction such as reddening, burning. Itching or irritation etc. the hair colour can be safely used on your hair

 

5. Clean and dry hair is the best

Colouring your hair when it is freshly washed is the best way as it is clean and oil free. Also ensure that your hair is dry before you colour it. Before applying hair colour, be certain of the things you must avoid while getting your hair coloured.


6. Take care of your coloured hair

Be extra careful right after you have coloured your hair. Swimming right after colouring the hair is known to drain the colour and lighten the shade. Too much exposure of the sun, or rains can drain that beautiful colour from your hair. But that doesn’t mean not getting out. Wear a hat when you go out so as to protect your coloured hair.
