Just in case you are considering making a change in your hair color, remember to also take the appropriate time to care for your tresses. After all, that is a part of your fashion statement that you make to the world.

There are so many colors to choose from for your hair as you embark on this journey into a beautiful transformation in your hair style. Your hair can be bleached (lightened) or have a toner added to it.  For chemicals; such as color, I recommend seeing a professional stylist to receive your hair service. If it's not done correctly, you can end up losing hair. What happens then? You have no choice but to see a professional for help to alleviate some of the hair damage caused by a lack of color knowledge. Be honest with your stylist about anything you have done to your hair, so she/he can proceed with care.

Hair Color

  • How often do you need to color? - You usually have to get hair color reapplied about every 6-8 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows and the look you are looking to achieve. Highlights are the easiest to maintain because you can't see the roots as much when they grow out because it's not an all-over color.
  • Amount of time to accomplish your hair color goals. - You May not be able to get your desired color on the first try. If you are trying to lighten your hair in 3 to 4 shades, you may want to do it as a process. It may take a few color applications! I'm not saying it can't be done in one process, but I am saying if you want your hair to stay on your head and be healthy, it may take your stylist a few stages. Big changes can damage your hair. Patience helps you to have beautiful,  healthy hair. Everybody's hair is not the same. Just because someone was able to get their hair that color in one process, doesn't mean you can. After all, their natural color may have already been lighter than your hair. There was not as much color that needed to be lifted as with the other person. Another factor is they may have healthier hair than you. The point is when dealing with hair color, it's a case-by-case situation.
