Prepare your hair by using a hair mask a day before you color your hair. Hair coloring takes away many nutrients from your hair. A hair mask will help moisturize your hair and make the process easier on your hair.
If this is the first time you are going to color your hair, then chances are that you are using a shampoo that does not fit colored hair. Pick a shampoo and conditioner that you can use for color-treated hair. Your regular shampoo can strip away your hair color so you would want to steer clear of it.
Sun protection is also important for your colored hair. Hats, scarves, UV-protection – all of these can save your hair from losing its color.
6. Hair Color Adds Volume and Makes Your Hair Easy to Style
Your hair color opens up your hair follicles which add volume to your hair. When you color your hair you change the texture of your hair. So you will be able to style your hair easily after your hair coloring session.
7. Keep It Simple
If this is your first hair color appointment, then get something simple like a semi-permanent gloss or subtle highlights which will enhance your natural hair color. The gloss is a great way to begin; it adds shine to your hair along with some pigment. Subtle highlights are also easy to maintain and they grow out nicely.
