There are many different types of hair and each brings its own challenges. An experienced hairstylist will know how to choose the right hair colour to suit your hair type.
If you have fine, thin hair, colour will take to it very quickly. It’s important therefore to carefully follow the instructions, ensuring you don’t leave the colour on for too long, which can result in hair damage.
Adding colour to your hair may make it appear thinner than it is because it can plump up the hair follicle. We recommend using hair dyes that are ammonia and peroxide free if you have thin hair as they can cause damage due to their harsh elements.
If your hair is curly and you are adding some highlights, be careful not to add too many around your face area, subtle curls are best. It is a common misconception that curly hair is stronger than other types of hair but this is not the case, it is usually quite delicate.
For colour treated or damaged hair, it is particularly important to ensure that you do not leave the colour in for longer than is recommended. This may result in damaging the hair further resulting in frizzy, flyaway hairs. To protect your hair, be sure to use a leave-in conditioner after colouring.
Medium and thick hair can be one of the toughest to colour as it is more difficult for colour to penetrate it. For those with thick hair that are using a home colouring kit, it is important to ensure that it is given a full coverage so that the colour will show up evenly across the hair.
Remember to always carry out a patch test on your skin before you use the dye to help you decide how long you need to leave the colour on for. These hair colour tips will help you have beautiful colour whether your hair is thin, medium or fine.
