Easy methods to implement hair color products.
Guide on how to implement hair color products easily.
Gone are those days when hair color could be done only at salons. The products that are found today in the market are easy to use and there is no need for you to go to a salon. Coloring your hair used to take time and money and still does if you want the job to be done extremely well, but if you want just touch ups and you don’t want to spend hundreds then you should probably just find out some easy methods to implement hair color products.
First thing first. Consider your hair texture before you go ahead and buy the hair color. Curly, frizzy hair soaks up color easily and become cooler toned whereas fine to medium hair textures cannot absorb colors easily and they become warmer toned. For curly and frizzy hair pick warmer colors and for fine and straight hair choose cooler shades. When you go to the drugstore to buy hair color, always buy two boxes especially if you have shoulder length hair. Two boxes hair color, will give you complete coverage.
Dividing the hair into sections.
Section your hair into four sections or more for uniformity and to avoid patchiness. Apply the hair color from back to front because the hair at the back is darker and takes longer time to absorb the hair color. And when you apply the hair color from back to front the color sits at the back for longer time. Keep your hair down for uniform color absorption. If you tie it up in a bun the color will not be even.
Dilute hair color with shampoo.
Most people have hair ends that are dry and frizzy, adding color to the ends can cause more damage so you should add two squirts of shampoo and dilute the color, then apply it. That will cause no harm but will add shine and a pinch of color. When you are trying to rinse out the color add water and mush your hair so that it emulsifies the dye that way you will not have any lines or streaks.
Tweaking the color.
Once you are done applying the hair color and rinsing it out check if it is perfect. If not, you can always tweak the results and play with the hair color. For tweaking the hair color you add more conditioner and damp your hair then cover it with a plastic and wrap your hair with a hot towel. Leave it for some time and blow dry your hair, shampoo and condition your hair after that and behold! You have your perfect hair color.
Conditioner really helps to implement hair color products properly.
Never skip the conditioner after hair color. In fact you should never skip conditioner. Conditioner is what locks the moisture after every wash and make sure that you use cold water to wash your hair. Hot water strips the hair from essential oils and moisture but cold water add shine and luster to your hair. Skipping the conditioner, leaves the hair cuticle open and the color still keeps working; you will end up with different color than you want.
