Color is fun, fun, fun! But you must be cautious!
QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER BEFORE COLORING
1) Why do you want to color your hair?
a) Is it worth any potential risk? Not just potential tress damage, could it damage your “look”?
i) Is it just a passing fancy? Do you really want it or are you envious of your fave star’s new look?
ii) A necessity? “I’m bored Jenteel! Put it on me!/I’m not ready to embrace my gray!” move on to next question!
2) Assess the condition of your hair
a) Is it damaged?
i) Yes?: Then work on rebuilding it 1st through protein & deep conditioning treatments
ii) No! “My hair is healthy and strong!” Great! Move on to next question!
3) Do you want a temporary or permanent look?
a) Consider maintenance and upkeep
4) What color do you want?
a) Look for hints in your skin color, undertones and eye color
b) Try on different colored wigs
5) Are you going to do it at home or a professional?
a) Professional: You are more likely to get better results
i) Know what you want; Don’t be bullied into doing something you don’t want!
b) At home: Work quickly and be patient! Do a test run: Patch test anyone?!
The following information is beneficial for those who want to experiment with color for girls with a little lovely gray or for “girls who just wanna have fun”! :) I will start with the most “risky” then move down to the natural options
