May 30, 2017

We women love refreshing our look every now and then. A new hair color is considered a simple remedy with a big effect. But you don't always have to go to a colorist. We show what you should pay attention to when coloring your hair and bring you to an expert level.

Rule 1: Please only color your offspring.

Permanent hair colors open the hair, lighten the current color and recolor the hair. If you repeat this process over and over again on colored hair, it will lose protein and become porous. Porous hair absorbs a lot of color, but fades again in just a few days. Therefore, only color your hairline. Wait until the approach is clearly visible. This takes an average of 3-4 weeks.

Rule 2: Additional shine strengthens the effect

Use a gloss or serum as a treatment to give your hair more brightness and shine. Faded colors reflect better and look fresher.

Rule 3: The correct mixing ratio depends on the hair thickness

For fine hair, half the coloring is often enough. For a perfect color result, we recommend mixing the color with the developer in the desired amount 1:1. As soon as the hair color and developer are mixed, the chemical reaction begins. Keep the rest of the paint and developer separate from each other. They will keep unmixed for at least 6 months. This way you save money and do something good for your hair at the same time.

Rule 4: Choose a hair color without ammonia to avoid brittle hair

Ammonia and parabens don't just damage your hair. These chemicals make your hair brittle and dull and also damage your scalp. Therefore, choose a hair color without ammonia and parabens. There are enough alternative ingredients. You can find an example here: gentle hair color .
