Colouring your hair is one of the coolest ways in which you bring a major transformation to your appearance ever! Keeping this in mind, you need to be a bit picky while selecting your hair colour and need to prep your hair well before undergoing the colouring process. The best way to get your hair transformed is by visiting a good salon but during this time when the salons are shut everywhere, you can take the control in your hands and go for it!
Prepping your hair-
Before setting off to bleaching and applying colour on our hair, we need to prep our locks well to make sure that there is no damage caused and our tresses are as healthy as always. We will be seeing the do’s and don’ts for the same-
- Invest in a good quality hair serum
Days before you decide to colour your hair, you need to ensure that your hair is healthy and there are no issues like split ends, etc., that you are facing. For this, the best you can do is invest in a good quality hair serum and apply it to your hair every time you wash and condition. Doing this for weeks, your hair will be well-prepared to take in the chemicals that come with colours and there will be no adverse effect of the same. Using serum on your hair will ensure that you are providing the right amount of moisture and nourishment to your hair that they need before undergoing any treatment.
- Trim your strands well
Trimming your hair can help you get rid of all the split ends and damaged hair, making it easy for you to take care of your locks. If you are constant with hair colouring, it is possible that you might be experiencing rough hair with split ends and trimming is the one-stop solution to deal with this problem. You can get your hands on some DIY videos of trimming your hair at home and get going.
- Stay away from harsh ingredients
It is extremely important to know what you are putting on your hair and skin. Make sure to use shampoos or conditioners that do not contain parabens or sulfates at all as they cause a lot of damage to your hair. Especially before heading towards colouring your hair, you need to make sure that everything you are using is healthy for your hair and scalp and will not cause any damage.
- Do NOT use heat
One of the major reasons for rough and dry hair is using heat for styling. Make sure to minimize or completely cut down the use of heat on your hair days before you are going to colour your hair and even after that. Using heating tools often can make your hair extremely brittle and rough.
- Avoid using hot water on hair
Shampooing your hair with extremely hot water can rip off the natural oils and moisture from your scalp leaving your hair dull and dry. This is why it is recommended to wash your hair with normal to cold water to make sure that you are not damaging your hair by degrading its texture.
These are a few do’s and don’ts you should follow before jumping to the decision of colouring your hair and transforming them. The fact that your hair needs to be prepped extremely well before colouring cannot be stressed upon much.
