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.
