Top 5 Hair Color Myths You Must Stop Believing Right Now
Hair coloring is a form of self-expression which allows you to present yourself creatively. But there is a lot of stigma about the damage that it might cause or how the process is irreversible and whatnot. There are plenty of misconceptions about hair coloring, and this is to tell you to stop believing them!
Myth #1: Semi-permanent hair colors can cover up your greys.
Fact #1: Grey hair CAN NOT be covered using our hair dyes
Due to the lack of porosity in root grey hair, it becomes difficult to deposit color on such strands. The cuticles are generally closed and it would take immense effort and developing time to open up these cuticles completely. It is even more difficult to color grey roots as that implies that your natural hair growth itself is grey.
Myth #2: Hair coloring will damage your hair
Fact #2: Using our conditioner-based semi-permanent dyes will nourish your damaged hair
Bleaching or pre-lightening is the process that damages your hair, it is not the hair coloring process that causes the damage. Since bleaching is a chemical process, it causes dryness and frizziness. However, this is completely manageable. Our hair dyes are conditioner-based and enriched with herbal ingredients such as Amla, Bhringraj, Brahmi, and Hibiscus extracts.
Myth #3: Once you start coloring, you have to continue forever
Fact #3: It’d be awesome if you color your hair forever, but you certainly DO NOT need to
Bleaching will lift off your natural pigment from a particular portion, but it’s entirely up to you whether you want to recolor your hair or not. If you wish to achieve your natural hair back, you’ll have to wait for the bleached/ colored portion to grow out and then get it cut. Or you can also use a permanent dye similar to your natural hair color if you don’t wish to experiment.
Myth #4: Hair coloring is expensive and you need to get it done professionally
Fact #4: It’s a DIY Process
All you need is the Paradyes Lighten Up! Bleach Pack to pre-lighten your hair and your favorite hair color. Using our DIY bleach pack only once will lift your color by a level 4-6 which is ideal only for warm shades like pinks and reds. For a cooler tone, you will have to bleach your hair once again. You can give yourself a hair makeover within an extremely affordable price range as compared to the exorbitant prices that a salon might charge for its services.
Myth #5: Colored hair requires extra and expensive maintenance
Fact #5: You only need to follow your regular hair care routine with Color Care products
The better you maintain your color tresses, the longer they’ll stay vibrant. To provide extra nourishment to your hair you can use a Color preserving mask occasionally. The only difference between maintaining natural hair and colored hair would be the products that you use. Switching to Color Protecting products after coloring your hair is essential if you want your color to last longer.
So, if anyone ever tells you these myths again, you know what to do, right? Don’t believe them and color your hair!
