Your Hair Color is Yours to Choose

Wish you were a blonde like Jennifer Aniston? Or do you aspire to be a red haired macho like the neighborhood cop? Or probably you want a green hair ever since you saw the drummer in your college fest. Are you afraid that your brilliant hair coloring ideas will remain only distant dreams? No way pal. There are ways close to your hand to fulfill your dreams. You just need to read ahead. The Various Hair Coloring Products Hair coloring products are usually of four categories - a.) Temporary b.) Semi-permanent c.) Deposit only/demi-permanent d.) Permanent. All products but temporary color require a patch test before application. The idea is to determine whether the client is allergic to the product. a.) Temporary Hair Coloring Product - In this product the pigment molecules are large. So it does not penetrate the cuticle layer. And that allows only a coating action that may be removed by shampooing. Acid dyes are used to coat on the hair surface. Acid dyes have low affinity to hair. And can be removed after a shampoo. Temporary hair coloring products typically give brighter and more vibrant shades or colors. For example orange or red. The various forms in which temporary hair coloring products are available include - Rinses, shampoos, gels, etc. b.) Semi-permanent Hair Coloring Product - This product deposits color on the hair shaft without lightening it. Having smaller molecules enables it to penetrate the hair shaft. It does not have any developer. And may be used with heat for penetration. It remains intact up to 8-14 shampoos. c.) Deposit only/demi-permanent Hair Coloring Product - It uses a mild, creamy developer of a lower volume than permanent color. There is an ammonia substitute called MEA in some demi-products. MEA helps with penetration and can lift natural color. Demi-permanent hair coloring products penetrate the hair shaft in a light manner. It makes hair shiny and covers/blends some gray. d.) Permanent Hair Coloring Product - This product, mixed with developer, remains in the hair shaft until new hair growth occurs. Its uses are matching, lightening and covering gray hair. These products usually contain ammonia, oxidative tints, and peroxide. Any allergic reactions coming from hair dye will most likely occur each time one dyes their hair. And it will probably get worse every time. Henna is a permanent hair coloring product - Henna is a deposit-only hair color. Its active component, lawsone, binds to keratin and is therefore permanent. Henna can be removed with mineral oil. But it is considered permanent. Special Hair Coloring Techniques The special effects in hair coloring techniques include highlighting and vivid, unusual hair colors. The latter include the ones like green or fuchsia (purple red). Highlighting ranges from temporary to permanent. An individual can find it difficult to perform the techniques required for highlighting by themselves. It’s best to consult with a professional hair stylist when considering new hair coloring options. Amateur use of hair coloring techniques may result into various serious consequences. The latter include - * Different color outcome compared to what you expected * Breakage of hair stands * Hair loss * Dry scalp. So now you know that your hair coloring dream is not a distant one. So just go ahead, color your hair in the way you want - red like fresh blood, orange, or whatever. Discover a new you. And add spice to your life. Who knows, just a change in your hair color might suddenly impress the guy or girl next door.
