These simple Hair Colours will add an extra oomph to your dull Hair.
Photo: Tumblr We’re always talking about Natural Hair Colours, which can mean 1 of 2 Colour types. First, there is the Natural Hair Colour that you were born with. The second is the Natural Hair Colour that comes in a tube. This post is all about the Natural Hair Colour that you add to your Hair. What are Natural Hair Colours? Without getting too hairdressey, Natural Colours are single pigment Colours that range from 1 (Darkest) to 10 (Lightest), the single pigment means they have no other reflects, they are a simply a single Colour such as Black, Light Blonde etc. All Hair Colours have a Natural Hair Colour base to begin with, that determines how Light or Dark a Colour is. They then get their character from the primary and/or secondary pigments and reflects added to the Natural Hair Colour base. But why would you use a Colour that you already have? Naturals are booster Colours. They enhance your Colour with smooth, soft hues that add extra oomph to dull Hair. They turn your Hair into a glossy, polished Hair Colour the same way a nude Nail polish does to a fingernail. They are also great for a number of other things like: Colouring Grey or White stubborn Hair, for excellent Grey coverage. Mixing with other Hair Colours particularly Gold, Ash, Chocolates or any other Vibrant Colours. Adding weight to fine, wispy pieces of Hair or using the benefits of olive oil in the Colour to create soft Hair. Plumping up your base Colour. Complete, low maintenance Hair Colours. Who will suit a Natural Hair Colour? Everyone. These Colours bring a Natural glow to your Hair and complexion and are incredible at highlighting that beautiful bone structure of yours. If you are unsure which Natural is for you, choose the one closest to your Natural Colour or no more than 2 shades Lighter or Darker.
It mainly involves everything you did before you found My Hairdresser.
Photo: Tumblr Why does Hair Colour look cheap? Is it due to poor choices? Laziness? Money? Lack of time? Our conclusion is e. All of the above, with the addition of f. Some people just have no idea. And g. Colourers commit the ultimate sin by using a Range other than ours, signalling the real point where the problems began. Here are the other 5 reasons. You Colour your full head every time you Colour. Whether you developed the habit because you hated waste (you don’t need to worry with our Range, it's all resealable and reusable) or because you wanted your Colour to be as vibrant through your ends as it is at your regrowth, you must stop this habit. It just adds Colour Build Up to your Hair making it look heavy, dark and dull and eventually it will look unhealthy. Instead, use the Colour Top Up Technique to keep your ends vibrant and your Colour healthy. You never consider your skin Tone. This may sound ridiculously simple, but too many people choose a Hair Colour without considering their complexion. Harsh Blacks or bitter Reds are a sure sign of a DIY job, not to mention how much they can age you. Choose Colours to soothe, compliment and highlight your features, rather than a Colour that makes your Hair look seperate from your head. Remember, Cool Undertones need Colours that are flatter to enhance the complexion like Ash, Cool Naturals or Violet Colours. Warm Undertones crave Colours with Depth like Warm Naturals, Golden or Bronzed hues and Strawberry Blondes. You need to stop with the tiger stripe Highlights. Big chunky Highlights, too many Highlights or a severe Colour difference between your Highlights and the rest of your Hair, scream tacky. Keep your Highlights no more than 2 shades Lighter than your Natural Hair Colour and start them lower off your Hairline, painting them casually through your Hair. You must clean up your Blonde. A bad Blonde is a trashy one and will tell you immediately if the person doing it was inexperienced. A poor Lightening process, uneven coverage or damaged Hair will automatically draw the eye to the Hair for all the wrong reasons. Brassy Blondes can easily be smoothed out by Toning and over Toned, Grey or Green Blondes can be injected with Warm or Natural hues to bring them back to life. If you’re looking for dimension, add in a few Lowlights through the underneath for character. You leave your regrowth unattended. 5 centimetres of Dark roots with Light Blonde ends, made even worse with the addition of brassy Colour bands, are the text book description of a cheap Hair Colour. Forget why it's happening, styles like this do nothing for you. If you want to grow out your Colour there are nicer ways to do it, like painting staggered Highlights through your Hair to break up the Colour lines. If the problem is that you struggle to keep up with the Regrowth applications, consider a low maintenance Colour or Colour style that can include your Regrowth.
Any time we open the My Hairdresser Salon, these are the rules we stick to every time.
Photo: Tumblr Mixing Colour should be done in stages. When preparing your Colour mixture, squeeze your Colour in the Tint Bowl first and use your Tint Brush to blend it into a smooth consistency before adding Developer. It will give you a creamier mixture that activates and combines easier with your Developer. Sectioning isn’t just for anal Colourers. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that Colouring your roots freestyle will give you a great Colour, it won’t. No matter the size of the job, we always divide the Hair into at least 4 sections and clip seperately. Without sectioning, it’s difficult to know where you have or haven't applied Product and sectioning seriously reduces mess and time. Your Blowdry is the best friend your Colour could ask for. Colour your Hair when you have a day old blow-dry or straightened Hair. It makes application a breeze, keeps your Hair sections tidy and the added grease in your Hair will protect your scalp. For you curly Haired beauties out there, this one rule will change everything. If you start at the back, there will be less swearing. Starting at the back of your Hair puts you in the driver's seat for a neater, easier application. And if you are Colouring with a Dark Colour, you want to Colour your baby Hairs last, because they are fresh and fine and will absorb that Colour right up, making your Hair looking so much darker than it is. Gold makes you glow. We’ll use a squeeze of a Golden hue with our Natural Colour mixture to sprinkle some energy through the Hair or to grab and cover stubborn Grey’s and leave us with a youthful glow. Beige is Ash’s softer, soothing sibling. Ash, albeit a fantastic Toning hue, can be too strong or stark if you’re looking for a softer Blonde. Swap your Ash for Beige and hey presto there's your soft, creamy Blonde that is more smooth less sleek. Keep a Colour Card. Oh, the times I have forgotten my favourite Colour mixture or gotten my Colour ratios wrong because it was more important to remember a useless story I heard while Colouring rather than remember my Colour. We give you a Colour Card with your online order, use it. Do you have any rules you want to add to the list?
