Tips To Take Care Of Your Coloured Hair


A lot of people colour their hair nowadays, from streaking with bright reds or highlighting them with blonde or a full coverage to make a style statement , or sometimes just to cover those embarrassing greys. And for these, there are numerous hair colouring options available in the market.


Ahhh~ I want to share a little tips for how to get colourful hair like me and my friends~
1. Pick a colour you can wear easily.  
2. If you're going to add color to your hair, you need to lighten it first.
3. Use good quality hair colour.  I'm use "Manic Panic". For a tutorial please read this post: How to Dye Your Hair With Manic Panic 
4. Mix some color into your conditioner
5. Mix (at least) two colours.  
6. Rinse with cool water. 
7. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and avoid swimming pool water ( because have a chlorine )


Tips To Take Care Of Your Coloured Hair :
 FIND COLOUR FOR YOUR UNIQUE HAIR
Know that colour is different for everyone. Just because you and your best friend use the same shade doesn’t mean you’ll have the same hair colour result. Colour develops a bit differently on every person, so consider hair condition, starting colour and how much processing has gone on.

 YOUR SKIN TONE MATTERS
Choose a colour that suits your skin tone. For instance, if your colouring is cool (fair, rosy skin with blue, green or grey eyes) go for ashy blondes and mahogany brunettes, and avoid warm or golden hair colours.


 WHEN IN DOUBT, GO LIGHTER
It’s much easier to “fix” a lighter shade if you are not happy with the result. Most box colours turn out darker than you think, so unless you’re certain, choose a shade that looks a bit lighter than you’d like the final result.

 TRY A NON PERMANENT FIRST
If colouring on a whim or just trying something new, go with a non-permanent colour. This type of hair colour will wash out faster (from up to 8 to up to 24 shampoos dependent on the product to use). So, if you don’t like it, it’ll wash out sooner. Plus, the results you achieve are usually closer to your natural hair colour, which keeps you from making too drastic a change.


 START WITH SMALL COLOUR CHANGES
Don’t go for a dramatic change—stay within one to three shades of your current or natural colour. For instance, if your hair is dark and you want to be platinum blonde, leave it to the professionals and visit your hair salon.

 HAIR TYPE MAKES A DIFFERENCE
Coarse hair (large in diameter) generally takes more time to absorb colour, so it requires longer processing time. Fine hair (small in diameter) generally takes less time to absorb colour so it requires a shorter processing time.


 COLOUR ON NON-SHAMPOOED HAIR
If you are planning to colour your hair today, make sure you don’t shampoo for at least two days in prior. This helps to let the natural oils secreted from scalp set in. This is simply done to protect our hair roots from severe colour damage. You may say it controls the damage intensity.

 GO FOR PROFESSIONAL COLOURING
If possible, then always go to a salon or a get a stylist to colour your hair as they know the best techniques to do so. Professional help is always better rather than doing it at home alone.


 AVOID MESS
One of the drawbacks of hair colouring is the mess it creates. To avoid mess all over your back (while hair colouring at home), cover your back from shoulders with an old towel/cloth/old full necked t-shirt. No one would want to be left with coloured back, temples and hands. So apply using a brush and always wear hand gloves.

 COLOUR-TREATED HAIR PRODUCTS DO THE TRICK
Use hair care products specifically designed for coloured hair – the brand, Pantene Pro V, has a great range of shampoos and conditioners for colour-treated hair. Also try hair treatments that help keep your colour looking great between colourings such as nice’n easy ColourSeal Gloss, which should be used once a week.


 CONDITION WITH A COLOR PROTECTING CONDITIONER
A good conditioner is very important to maintain the moisture balance in your hair. Since your hair has been treated with chemicals like ammonia, therefore always use a “colour protecting conditioner”. This will nourish it and provide its natural shine and lustre.

 DEEP CONDITIONING
Go back to the old and famous condition method of using hot oils. Use olive oil, almond oil or coconut oil to deep condition your hair.


 CONSERVE YOUR COLOUR
For your colour to last longer, always use leave in conditioners after washing your hair. If possible, wear a hat or a hair sunblock spray while going out in the sun. This helps to protect hair from getting damaged by sun and depleting the colour away.

 AVOID BLOW DRYING
Avoid the use of blow dryer and let your hair dry naturally. If you have to use, then switch to cool setting to dry your hair.


 SWIM WITH CAUTION
Chlorine is very harmful for coloured hair. It can alter the actual colour of your hair. So avoid setting into the pool just after colouring your hair. And if you do, always wear a swimming cap before you step in.

 TOUCH UP TRICK
If you need touch ups, do it every 4 weeks. For a near-perfect touch up, always use the colour mixture and apply it using a cotton ball dipped in colour mixture or use a brush. Follow the same rinsing process with cold water as before to avoid damage.
