You grew up thinking you had black hair, everyone told you it’s black, it looks black, chances are it’s not.
When your colouring your hair to appear natural going with the color you were when you were 5,10 or even 15 is wrong. As we get older our hair changes color so whilst you may have been dark brown at 10 your 35 with some white hairs chances are it’s brown!
If you’re colouring your hair to cover the grey here are a few things to help get the best out of the time and longevity of the process.
- Always go 1/2 to 1 shade lighter than your natural color
- Add variation, a few highlights gives variation and therefore breaks up regrowth, giving you longer between colors.
- Don’t color the ends, ever! The ends should be lighter than the roots.
- Use a sulfate free shampoo and always conditioner.
- Try to add a variation each visit, shade change or add some fun to eliminate boredom.
If you can manage a few of the above, you’re chances of having a color people comment on in a good way are far greater!
