Colour Care for Hair

Hair styles change all the time. From bright colours to innovative new designs so its important to take care of your hair to ensure your make the most of your style and hair colour.

There should be a lot of thought before you decide to colour your hair as you want to be mindful not to excessively damage your hair. That can take a long time and a lot of money to achieve. If you have any concerns speak to a hair care professional before dyeing your hair.

Once you have decided to re-colour your hair you need to wash your hair under as cold water as you can take it. This helps to maintain its shine and keep it healthy. Having water on too hot will rinse out the colour and dry it out.

When your hair is first dyed (providing you have long hair) you or your haircare professional should go over it with a flat iron to secure the colour to your hair shaft. Try and avoid harsh chemicals from there on out and wait at least 48 hours after to wash your hair after its been done.

The Ombre Hair style

More and more women are opting for a different style this year, and it’s known as the Ombre hair style. It’s a form of dip-dyeing, therefore making your hair two toned, or occasionally with several colours.

The Ombre style tends to involve lighter colours at the bottom of the hair and  the darker more natural colours at the top. The Ombre look is usually only sported on a female with long heir, perhaps down to the shoulders, allowing for more of a fade between the two colours.

Bold colours are recently being used in this Ombre style, and it celebrities such as Jaime King have flaunted blue dip dye.

More and more people have opted for the Ombre style, and there are no signs that it is going away anytime soon. So if you’re looking for a fresh look and you want to keep up with the latest hair trends, then get the Ombre hair style, just make sure you choose your dip dye colour wisely.

You may wish to start off with a subtle colour to see if you like it before moving on to any of the more vibrant colours.
