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.
Avoid the 5 most common lies about hair care! November 06 2017
Do you wash your hair every day cause fall? Cutting the wires on the full moon increases the volume? We'll unveil 5 myths related to hair care.
- Scalp Health Does Not Influence Wire
This, perhaps, is the biggest lie of all. The health of the scalp greatly influences the growth and beauty of the hair. For a flower to grow beautiful and strong, it needs a bed that provides the nutrients needed to make it happen, so you need to take care of the ground where it is. With the hair, it's exactly the same.
- Cut your hair on a full moon day.
The development of strands is linked to the care you have with them and not to the phases of the moon. However, some external factors do alter yarn growth and strength, such as sun exposure and tobacco and alcohol consumption.
- Washing the hair every day causes the hair to fall
The frequency of hair washing varies from hair to hair, after all, the structure of the yarn requires different care. However, brittle hair is not caused by excess water. The only recommendation in these cases is to give preference to warm or cold water and always remove the waste products so that they do not accumulate in the scalp.
- Leave the moisturizer all day helps in the result
This technique does not work and still causes problems on the scalp such as scaling and redness on the skin. Some products exposed to the sun react and still result in irritations.
- Do not dry your hair after bathing causes the root to rot
The wires dry naturally, you do not need to use a dryer or anything like that. However, leaving the scalp muffled in the long run eventually ends up causing the wires to become more brittle. The tip is to wipe them well with a towel different from that used on the body, so you do not run the risk of leaving skin residue accumulated on the head.
