Regrowth is your new Hair growth closest to your scalp, also known as your roots. It is your Natural Hair Colour.
Why do I need to know about it?
Your regrowth is the key to determining your Developer choice when Colouring your Hair. You must identify your Natural Hair Colour, via your regrowth, to know how many levels you will need to lift or deposit your Natural Hair Colour to achieve your new chosen Hair Colour. It is also how you determine your percentage of Grey’s and whether your Hair has Warm or Cool undertones. Knowing your Natural Hair Colour is the most important part of Colouring.
Colouring your regrowth
Regrowth can be a pain to maintain, especially when you are Naturally a lot darker than your Colour or when your are Colouring Grey’s. Just because you have regrowth does not mean you have to apply Colour to your whole head. If you constantly Colour on top of Colour, you will create Colour Build Up and your Hair will become brittle and damaged. It will also effect your Colour, making it dull. Instead, when Colouring, use the Colour Top Up Technique to avoid Build Up and to keep your Colour fresh. Maintaining regrowth is easy with My Hairdresser. All our Colour and Developers are resealable, so you can mix a small amount of Product and use the remainder when you next need it.
3 Ways to Touch Up your Regrowth in a Time Frame
I have some time and I need to touch up my roots and refresh my colour.
Perfect. Because you do have the time, touch up your full head of regrowth and follow the Colour Top Up Technique, applying Colour to the lengths and ends of your Hair during the last 10 minutes of processing time. The Colour Top Up Technique is a great way to add shine and vibrancy back into the ends of your Hair, giving you a fabulous and even all round Colour. It also tops up your vibrancy and can act as a Toner. It also prevents Colour Build Up.
I am busy, but I have a window of time to fit in a quick Colour.
Focus solely on your full head of regrowth, leave your Colour Top Up for your next Colour. Once you have mixed your Colour and Developer seal up the bottle and tube tightly, for use next time!
I have no time, but I need to do something!
For a quick savvy root touch up, when time is really against you, mix a small amount of Colour and Developer and apply the Colour to your Hair line around your face and key Hair partings. It will give the illusion that your entire head is Coloured.
Keep in mind
If you are short on time, don't try anything drastic in case you can't fix any issues. Focus on Colouring your regrowth, and leave your bigger changes to when you have a bit more time up your sleeve.
