Fortunately, it is now possible to optimize or completely change your natural hair color until you are completely satisfied with it.
Colorful hair colors are a total eye-catcher and just totally hip. We’ll explain today how to get your hair so colorful and what you need to keep in mind.
Dyeing the hair
The first step is necessarily always (sorry girls ☹) the bleaching of the hair. This also applies to the natural blondes among us. Why it is like that?
Bright colors need a special foundation. When bleaching, the hair structure is broken and the hair is deprived of the natural color pigments. As a result, the cuticle of the hair is easily opened and the color pigments find better hold in the hair during subsequent dyeing.
Of course, you can apply a brightly colored hair color on blond hair, which was not previously bleached, apply. However, the color will never settle there as well as on bleached hair.
So far, unfortunately, there are only products whose durability is comparable to that of an intensive tint. Therefore, it is especially in the beginning: often re-dye. Pigments should be added after the fourth or fifth wash. The more you re-dye, the more color pigments accumulate in the hair and make the color more durable. After all, you only have to dye the lengths every three to four weeks, but the mixture has to be bleached and re-dyed regularly.
Obtaining a brightly colored hair color is so very expensive.
The first step to a colorful hair color is always a bleaching.
Care of the dyed hair
The bleaching and the subsequent dyeing nip your hair quite nicely. This makes it more susceptible to split ends and hair breakage. Intensive care is therefore mandatory.
Since during the dyeing process the chemical leg was already neatly swayed, intensive hair treatments with natural oils do your hair especially well here. Hairdressers recommend using such a nourishing cure after every fifth hair wash. In addition, should be applied with every wash conditioner. Even better is a leave-in conditioner, as it can stay in the hair and the hair has more of it.
We recommend natural hair care here as dyeing has already put a lot of strain on your scalp and hair. If, for example, the scalp is attacked with aggressive surfactants such as sodium laureth sulfate, this can irritate even more.
Likewise, silicones could be a problem for dye-stained hair. Although silicones form an impermeable protective coat around the hair, which may sound tempting at first, however, this film leaves no more caring substances on your hair. It is precisely this nourishing care that is needed more than ever.
Our recommendation is to wash the hair with a mild, silicone-free shampoo (so less color pigments are dissolved out). The natural shampoo by myRapunzel is very well suited for this, as it not only cleanses the hair very gently, but also cares for it while shampooing. Applying Leave-in-Conditioner after every hair wash protects the hair. If you use the myRapunzel hair oil as a leave-in care, it also nourishes the hair and forms a natural protective coat. So your hair still gets a mini care after washing. Hair treatments with natural oils such as the myRapunzel hair oil have a moisturizing effect and care for your hair intensively.
Not only colorful hair colors are currently in fashion, but also gray-colored hair.
Back to the natural hair color
Here are two options: bleach or wash out as many pigments as possible and then drown out. A bleaching is of course faster and removes almost all pigments again from the hair. However, further bleaching could put so much strain on your hair that they simply break off. More gentle is the application of a deep cleansing shampoo, which pulls many pigments out of the hair. After some time, the hair can then be tinted back towards natural hair color.
We personally find brightly colored hair colors totally cool, however, should be considered how great the effort and the damage to your hair until the hair color meets your expectations. Unfortunately, despite dermatological tests, synthetic hair dyes can cause skin irritation in some women. In addition, harmful substances can enter your body via the scalp and accumulate there.
In any case, you should carefully weigh the pros and cons and also think about how to proceed if you do not like the bright hair color.
