Coloring your hair can be a very daunting task, especially for those coloring their hair for the first time. It is also recommended that you go to a salon to get your hair colored for the first time instead of using a box color. But to make the process less intimidating you can do the following things to make sure that you get the right color for you!
1. Get a color consultancy
Before you color your hair you must know what you’re getting yourself into. So, you can either get a consultancy with your hair colorist, talk to friends who have gotten their hair colored or go to a professional consultant. They will make your coloring experience easier and much less intimidating.
2. Know what you want
You might have an idea of what type of a style and color you want but you may not know how to describe it to your colorist. Make sure that you show them pictures of what you want and pictures of what you don’t want to ensure smooth communication and zero misunderstanding.
3. Understand the importance of post-color treatment
Coloring your hair is an investment, especially if you want to maintain the quality of your hair and to keep the color looking vibrant. You need to switch your shampoo and conditioner according to your hair color and type to ensure that washing doesn’t strip the dye. You also need to regularly treat your hair with deep conditioners to keep it hydrated. Sun protection is also a must to prevent your hair color from fading too quickly. You and your colorist should also decide how often you need to do touch ups to keep your hair looking fabulous!
So, these are the top things you should consider the next time your color your hair.
