Your hair became very dark after coloring it

December 12, 2017

If your hair becomes too dark after coloring, it is often because your hair has been colored too frequently from root to tip.

With permanent hair coloring, the hair structure opens and color particles are deposited. The more often this process is repeated, the more difficult it is for the hair structure to remain closed from the original middle of the hair to the ends of the hair so as not to absorb any further particles. Due to the accumulated color particles in the hair, the color can be absorbed more strongly and can even become thicker, appearing darker and duller.

The best way to get around this problem is to only color the ends of your hair after the first use. This way you avoid having to re-treat hair that has already been colored. You also prevent your hair from fading. Repeated color treatments can cause hair to become more brittle as it absorbs color more quickly.

At the same time, the hair cannot retain the color well and therefore appears bleached. Therefore, it is better to use a glaze or mask to renew the color of colored hair and restore the shine of the hair. Avoid repeated coloring from the roots to the ends of the hair.

Regular use of an anti-dandruff shampoo (such as Head & Shoulders) will help you “wash out” hair dye. We also recommend using a protein mask to make your hair supple.
