5 Reasons to Avoid At-Home Hair Coloring
Some of the main reasons for women to have their hair colored usually include wanting to hide gray hairs or deciding to try a new look for a change. However, many of them try to color their hair at home and find that they are extremely disappointed with the end result. Below are a few reasons why at home hair coloring projects do not turn out as planned.
1. You Bleached It and It Turned Orange
Most women don’t realize that, if they have darker than average hair, they will need to consult with a professional stylist if they have ideas of making their hair a lot lighter. An experienced stylist will be able to determine exactly how much peroxide is needed and how long it will have to be left on the hair for in order to get the desired end results. Peroxide is also available in different strengths, and stylists will know which one is most suitable for a client’s particular hair color and type.
2. You Went by the Color Printed on the Box
Many people fall into the trap of choosing an off-the-shelf hair coloring kit according to the model’s hair color that is displayed on the box. However, it is crucial to remember that no at-home hair color will be able to look as good as that which is done by a professional in a salon. The end result of any coloring service will depend largely on the original color of the hair, the current condition of the hair and whether any prior color or treatment products remain in the hair.
3. Tell-Tale Dye Stains on the Hair Line
One of the most obvious signs that your hair color looks like an at home project is the tell-tale stains that end up appearing around your hair line as well as all over your scalp. When having your hair colored in a salon environment, the stylist will be able to prevent this from happening.
4. You Overdid the Highlights
Some people who try to apply their own highlights end up overdoing it to the point where it looks artificial and as a result, makes your hair look flat and dull. As the darker hair grows out, the regrowth will also become extremely obvious around the roots. However, when a colorist applies highlights in a salon environment, he or she will know exactly how to apply them in such a way that they look as natural as possible, giving you the desired end result.
5. You Use One Color for All of your Hair
Many women don’t realize that applying the same color to their whole head of hair will result in it looking dull and lifeless. When having a hair coloring service done at a salon, the stylist will know which shades of color to use on each part of the hair to ensure that the end result is as natural-looking as possible.
