5 Secrets you need to know before you paint your hair September 04 2017

To ensure that the color comes out in the desired tone, some care must be taken before painting the hair

 5 essential tips for tinted hair

Having healthy hair, testing the color in advance, taking a break between techniques, following home care and using non-aggressive products are the prerequisites for perfectly colored hair. Below, some experts teach you all the tricks to get you exactly the blonde, brown or redhead you want.

 

The success of color depends on the health of your wires

This means that if the wires are dry or very porous, they risk not absorbing the right dye and even tarnish. Hence the importance of keeping them always hydrated. "You need to moisturize at least once a week with products enriched with shea butter, argan oil or macadamia to prepare the yarn," says the colorist Yuha Antero, from MG Hair Design in São Paulo . If the hair is very weak and malnourished, invest in restructuration products, which should contain protein and keratin in the formula.

 

Find the right tone for you

Discover the tone of your skin taking into account the color of your eyes. Blues or greens usually indicate cold skin; brown or darker eyes fall into the category of warm or neutral skin. The hot guy usually makes good partnership, according to Yuha, with copper wires and brown nuances. "The cold skin is highlighted by blond-platinum, brown or reddish-brown. And the neutral looks good with any tone, "adds the expert. Although generic, the trick will help guide your choice. But it is imperative to do a wick test (painting only a small amount) before hammering. "It gives more security in relation to the chosen color, it avoids future regrets and allows to detect possible allergic reactions", explains the hairstylist Julio Crepaldi, of the hall Gallery, in São Paulo.

Paint first, smooth after

The ideal would be to opt for either method, as both are very aggressive. However, since this option is almost impossible, prefer to colorize or make lights before starting for progressive or relaxation. The reason: after going through this type of chemical procedure, the wire takes longer to pick up the color and therefore the time that the bleach or tincture will be in action will be much greater. The result is more battered wounds and therefore more dry. If, however, for any reason, you need to straighten your hair before coloring, the hairstylist Sandro Cassolari advises to replace the ink by toning, which is less harmful.

 

Attention to dyeing at home

The recommended amount of product must be adhered to and the time taken for the tincture to be adhered to. That is: use more paint than indicated or leave it for longer does not mean that the color will adhere better and last longer. It is also important to evenly distribute the product. You should first wet the brush in the paint, deposit a little of the product in the root and, after a few seconds, spread it with a wide comb along the length. "Otherwise, the threads may be stained, with different nuances. This is the main mistake made at home, "says Julio Crepaldi.

Choose less harmful alternatives

"Dyes without ammonia are the least aggressive," reports Yuha. Will it make reflexes? Prefer paint to bleaching powder, which removes the mass of hair, leaving it porous. If the goal is to cover white threads, ask the hairdresser about specific techniques, which deposit the product only on them - so you avoid unnecessary application on the other strands. At home, those who do not have much white hair can change the tincture for the toner, which, as we have said, less strikes the thread.

When the idea is to change the look, revolutionizing hair color is often the first choice of women. But as it is not always possible to run to the salon, the solution is to dye the hair at home. Not that it's complicated, but changing the hair color at home requires extra care not to make mistakes and have unpleasant surprises.

 

Tips for not making mistakes

Choosing the color of hair paint is perhaps the most difficult part. The packaging of dyes usually brings a picture of color effects, this helps in the decision. But remember that tincture does not lighten tincture. If your hair is already dyed and you want to lighten the yarn, it is necessary to make a discoloration in the salon, passing one paint on top of the other can have a disastrous result.

Before you paint your hair at home, do the touch test to make sure you have no sensitivity to the product.

Put one drop of the coloring and another drop of developer behind the ear or forearm. Rinse after 40 minutes and wait 24 hours. If the area becomes red or irritated, do not use the product.

The hair must be dry to receive the dye. Before painting, stay at least a day without washing your hair, natural oiliness protects the hair and scalp from chemistry.

To know the ideal amount of dye, evaluate the length and volume of your hair. Long or very bulky yarns need two or more dyeing kits.

Prepare the dye by carefully following the instructions in the explanatory leaflet, each manufacturer has important guidelines that guarantee better results. The dye may run off and cause stains on the skin and clothing, so wear gloves and a towel on the shoulders.

Pass a silicone ointment, Vaseline or even shaving cream on the forehead, ears, around the face and at the nape of the neck to protect the skin from blemishes, especially if the tincture is dark.

Divide the hair into several wide strands to ensure the product is evenly distributed throughout the hair. Start the application by the nape of the neck, the wires of this region usually resist more the action of the paint and therefore need more time.

If you are just tinkering at home, start the application at the root, wait 20 to 30 minutes, then pull the ink toward the tips. Let it act for 10 to 15 minutes. This prevents the root from getting lighter than the tips of the hair.

When finished applying the mixture throughout the hair, check the indication of the box on which the action time of the dye. Wait rigorously for the indicated time, let the dye act or a little more or less can alter the final color, stain the wires and impair the fixing of the product.

When removing the product, rinse the hair until the water comes out completely without color. Do not use shampoo, most kits come with a post-coloring treatment cream sache to firm the color, pass and leave to act as directed. After dyeing, try to use specific shampoos and conditioners for dyed hair, they have ingredients that help maintain hydration of the hair.
