Dye, Don’t Die Your Hair

It is always a great deal of fun to be able to experiment with different looks whether it be with clothes, makeup or hair. Changing any of these has the ability to either elevate how we look, or on the flipside completely destroy our look! This is a risk to be taken however, and often the results are quite adventurous and interesting. One of the easiest and yet most hair-raising issue is colouring… well, your hair. Aside from having to find a shade that will match, you also need to make sure you do not have any form of adverse reactions to it. Here is a helping hand if you feel it is finally time for that purple debut!

TYPE OF MAKEOVER

We are surrounded with so much technology today, that your options are vast. There is no mandatory need to get yourself to a salon for a dye job especially if the colours you are planning on are more neutral based. You can even get it done at home; just make sure you match the hair colouring product with your skin tone. If you are not sure, why not ask the store assistant to help you out especially if this is your first time? Next time around you will know what not to do.

PRE-PREPPING

The chemicals in hair dye are very intense, and so damaging that your hair can become dry and brittle, a process which is sped up if your hair is anyway fine and thin. Those who colour repeatedly have found their hair simply falling off which is of course scary. If you decided to do it on a whim, there is not much you can do, however if you know at least two days in advance, treat your hair to a deep-conditioning mask. Allow plenty of moisture to seep in before you load it with Biore Pore Strips Singapore. You will thank yourself later!

POST COLOUR

Many underestimate just how much damage water can do, as well as not investing in proper aftercare products. Use specific shampoo and conditioner that are catered towards locking in colour and helping it last longer. No hair colouring product is immune to fading, so if you spend a lot of time outdoors in the sun or even swim, you need to consider both the heat and the chlorine. You will have to be extra careful, especially if the colour is especially bright and vibrant.

FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS

If you choose to do it yourself at home, remember to follow instructions as per the manufacturer at all costs. At a salon this responsibility does not fall on you as they will be doing it, and are professionals. Do not try and assume you might know better and end up doing your own thing because it is highly likely you will end up regretting it. Do yourself a favour, save yourself the trouble and follow what is mentioned for a safe experience!
