Hair Coloring tips

It is estimated that somewhere between 65 and 75 percent of women dye their hair. Stick to colors that compliment your skin tone.

I once colored my hair red and it looked terrible.

If you have pale skin and blue/green eyes than you might look ok with a color like platinum or ash blonde.

If you have olive skin, you will look good in dark browns, and reds.

If you have ivory, or creamy beige skin you will look good in lighter hair colors like beige blondes, and strawberry red.

If you want to see how you would look as a blonde, before permanently coloring it choose a temporary hair dye. They wash out easily, and only last one to three shampoos.

Choose a color that blends well with your natural color. Remember that the color you see on the box will not be the color you end up with.
Never color your hair more than 2 shades lighter than your natural shade. Choose a semi-permanent hair dye. Semi-permanent hair dye last about 20 washes. Always test a small patch of your hair before you proceed with your entire head.

Coloring Grey hair

Semi-permanent colors are best when you have up to 20% Grey hairs. If you have more Grey hair you might want to go to a permanent hair color.

Can you color your hair while you’re pregnant?

If you are pregnant get your doctor’s permission before proceeding with any hair color treatment.

Do you have any color horror stories? I would love to hear them. Have you dyed your hair darker or lighter than your natural color before?

Did you come here via Google? Don’t leave. Have a look around. Tell me what color is your hair now?

    I do picture you in that hairstyle, – Rose, but, in the spirit of fun — I think you are too feisty to be a blonde – (and back to reality – that is a compliment.)
