Spring is finally here! After such a long winter, many of us are looking for a change. Coloring our hair is one of fun ways to spice up your look for the new season and I wanted to share some information to help you along the color journey.
Hair color can damage hair if left in too long or not washed out well. Hair color in the store sold in boxes has almost 80% ammonia while professional hair color such as The Color line by Paul Mitchell, Rusk, and several others have as low as 8% ammonia. It is very important to follow color directions especially if you are doing it yourself. Conditioning your hair is a MUST especially if you have bleached your hair. Deep conditioner are required within 2-4weeks of coloring. Using a color shampoo is a great way to boost your existing color without having to color your hair.
Henna is known for being a natural color but may end up leaving the natural hair feeling really dry. Conditioner can help add moisture.
The best, safest, and least expensive way for natural hair to lighten is fresh lemon juice spray in you hair and sit in the sun. FYI slow process but you get the results.
