Hair Coloring Myths and Truths August 22 2019
For many years, it was believed that the colors and lights were bad for the hair, but in fact, if the procedures is well done and the hairdresser can identify the limit of the hair, it can remain healthy and beautiful, without breaking or falling.
Still, there is a lot of misinformation spreading about colored hair. But don't worry, cause we going to tell you all of them! Check out:
- The ink dries the hair
Myth. The ink not makes the hair dry. Actually, Hydrogen peroxide (the substance present in the oxidants) is the real responsible for causing dryness, but it all depends on the volume used of the substance, a point that people do not usually pay much attention to. For the paint, there are oxidants from 10 to 40 volumes. The higher the volume, the more aggression to the wires. Each of these oxidants is specific to a hair type, so it is up to the hairdresser to evaluate the porosity and structure of the hair to determine which one is appropriate. If there is no such assessment, there may certainly be dryness.
- Coloring the wires with dark tones helps to protect the wires
Myth. This information is very popular, but it is completely false. All dyes have the same action on the hair, regardless of color, and can damage the hair if not used properly. In fact, people get this impression because dark inks reflect more light than lighter shades, which causes a false impression of hydration.
- Who has colored hair can use flat iron or baby-liss
Truth. Those who have the colored wires can use flat iron or baby-liss, but carefully. Use should not be daily and care must be taken with temperature. It is essential to use a thermal protector first and the wires should always be well dry.
- Natural blonde hair suffers more from dyes
Myth. Again, the dyes have the same action on the hair and their color does not influence it. What determines how much hair will suffer from dyeing is the thickness of the strands. Thinner strands tend to suffer more because they are more delicate, but with proper diagnosis and the use of products that oxidize less, it is possible to preserve the integrity and beauty of even the finest hair.
- Hair toners are less aggressive than paints
Truth. Hair paints often contain ammonia, a substance that opens the cuticles and allows the color to penetrate more into the strands. This is what makes the dye last longer. The toners have no ammonia, so they are less aggressive and also last less, fully losing their color in about two months.
