4 things to know before changing your hair colour

Before you decide to take the plunge and change the appearance of your hair colour, there are some important things that you should consider. After all, you want to look as beautiful as possible without having to stress about any potential issues! Therefore, here are four things that you should know before changing your hair colour:

Skin Tone Plays a Major Factor

Since the colour of your hair and the tone of your skin compliment each other, make sure that you choose a hair colour that best suits your skin. To decide on which type of hair colour is most flattering to your appearance, compare it to the colour of your skin. Most individuals have skin that is either a warm or cool skin tone, so those with a cool toned skin should choose a colour cool in tone. Likewise, those with warm toned skin should choose a hair colour that is warm in tone.

Regular Hair Maintenance is Required

Although you may normally wash your hair every other day, you will need to wash it more often after colouring your hair. In addition, the shampoo and conditioner products that you are currently using will need to be exchanged for hair products that are protein based. Also keep in mind that you will need to limit the number of times you blow-dry after treatment as the heat can lift the pigment out of your hair.

Hair Needs to be in Optimal Condition before Treatment

Before attempting to colour your hair, you need to ensure that your hair is in optimal condition. If the strands of your hair are not in great condition prior to the coloring treatment, you may find that the condition of your hair quickly deteriorates after the treatment. As long as your hair is in fantastic condition, the colour will hold and have a healthy and shiny appearance.

There is an Adjustment Period

Many women are shocked to see themselves in the mirror after their initial hair colour treatment. However, hair looks darker when it is wet and the colour actually changes within the first few washes. If you are doing a major colour change, it will certainly take some time to get used to your new look. Just give yourself an adjustment period and you will likely warm up to your new beautiful locks! Match it with your flawless glow from MineTan and you’re ready for any event!
