If you have naturally dark hair, you have probably only experimented with browns and dark reds. But it’s not your fault you’re saddled with dull shades! Instead, blame your hair’s genetic makeup because there’s not much you can do to naturally dark hair without harming it.
When to dye your hair?
The next step is to schedule your hair coloring appointment. It’s important to let your hair air dry for one day before dyeing it. Shampooing removes natural oils from your hair, which act as a barrier between your scalp and the dye chemicals, leaving your scalp more vulnerable to discomfort.
How to use hair dye?
The same principles apply whether you use a home dye kit or a professional hair dye. Always begin at the ends of your hair, avoiding the roots. After covering the rest of your hair, apply for the root coverage last. The heat from your scalp causes the roots to grow faster than the rest of your hair.
The time necessary to let the dye rest on your head varies according to the color, so check the directions.
How to keep red hair?
Red is the most significant molecule of all hues, and so fades the fastest. I hate spending money and time on a great shade of red to have it fade away in days or weeks. So here are a few tips to keep that gorgeous red going.
First, use exclusively colored hair washes and purple hair conditioner. They shield your hair color from UV radiation and contaminants. Choose sulfate-free products that clean without removing color.
Shampoo and conditioner for red hair would be a fantastic addition to your hair care arsenal. These products are usually red to deposit color back into the hair shafts after each wash. To make your red shampoo and conditioner, buy a semi-permanent hair dye that matches your final hair color and mix it with your favorite shampoo and conditioner.
Finally, keep your hair hydrated. Colors do not retain well on dry hair. Therefore regular moisturizing treatments are advised. Many drugstore companies provide similar items at reasonable prices. You can also deep condition your hair by keeping it in for 30 minutes with a shower cap on to let the substance penetrate. Hot oil massages with coconut or olive oils are another option.
