So in 2015 and 2016 we’ve seen a lot being done with hair color. Gray, which looks so beautiful, green, pink, etc. All the colors pretty much look perfect when you’re glancing through pictures.
But in reality color is still a CHEMICAL and it can be harsh on your hair without the proper care. You have to be sure to take extra good care of your hair when you add color especially any type of color where you had to bleach your hair or add a developer (20,30 or 40 to lighten the color). Be sure to get a shampoo and conditioner for color treated hair and to continue with hair treatments-like those BKT’s we talked about. Keep your hair moisturized. Dry hair is bad enough on its own but dry, colored hair has disaster and DAMAGE written all over it. Also, remember the golden rule don’t dye your hair again if it hasn’t been at least 2 weeks (1 if it’s a really bad color on you and you can’t wait another minute)
Personally I don’t like to use box color it doesn’t really work for me. I go straight on down to Sally’s Beauty Supply and get the L’Oreal Excellence HiColor. This type of dye requires a developer and is permanent. My hair doesn’t take well to color so I’ve used a 40 developer. In this beautiful picture above is my lovely niece. She just got her hair dyed for the first time and it’s a box color. So box colors aren’t horrible and they probably work for most just not me.
But box or permanent the same rules apply a and you have to maintain steady regimen to keep your hair healthy and intact.
