Hair Dying Tips and Treatment

Lately, colored hair has become a big trend. There are many people with different colored hair, whether it's natural or unnatural colored hair. There are also all kinds of colors and brands. You can even mix up different colors to get the colors you want.

Before you color or bleach your hair, ask for permission if you are at a young age, or if you are unsure your parents will agree to the idea.

When coloring or bleaching your hair, make sure to cover the counter or sink to avoid staining. Wear an old shirt and make sure to put Vaseline on your forehead, behind ears, and back of neck to avoid staining. Do not scrub the dye into your scalp, as this will cause noticeable staining, and it takes many washes to get out, which also causes the dye in your hair to rinse out.

Getting dye on your skin is easier to hide and get off than if you get too much on your scalp. Do not bleach or dye your hair too many times too close together; this will cause it to be damaged and maybe even fall out.

Not all brands are good for everyone's hair: some may cause an allergic reaction, and some may not agree with your hair and dye how you want it to. Just remember to be careful and follow the instructions provided to you.

After dying, if you're worried about damaged hair, or if you have damaged hair, here are a few good ways to help treat or prevent the damaging from happening:

Avoid dying your hair too often. Dying it again before the color hasn't started fading will fry your hair, especially if you use heat products on a daily basics. Also, do not shampoo too often because it will strip the color out of your hair too quickly. You can also seek a professional in hair coloring to color your hair if you are afraid you are going to ruin it. Do hot oil treatments in between dyes; this always seems to work for me. Finally, do not go straight into using other chemicals on your hair right after you dye it.

Go easy and take it slow, and I wish you the best luck!
