5 Things To Remember If You Are Considering A Drastic Change To Your Hair Color

Posted by

There's nothing wrong with getting bored of your hair color. That's why they created dye, right? However, some people want to drastically change the color of their hair. While this isn't a bad thing, there are a few things you should know before deciding to take the plunge. Whether you want blonde or ombre, here are the top five things to remember if you are considering a drastic change in hair color.


1. Color Can Change Curl Pattern
Coloring your natural hair can change the proteins in your hair and ultimately relax the curl pattern. For some this may be a desirable trait. However, this can be devastating to someone that doesn't see it coming. If you want to keep your curl pattern it may be wise to forgo coloring your hair. With that being said, it is possible to get your hair back to its natural curl pattern by using protein treatments.

2. Going Lighter Damages Your Hair More Than Going Darker
If you want to change your hair color, but you also want to inflict the least amount of damage as possible, you should go darker as opposed to going lighter. Going blonde strips the color out of your hair and damages it more than if you were to go darker.

3. Colored Hair Breaks Easier
Whether you like it or not, coloring your hair is going to damage it. There's no way around it. Coloring your hair decreases the elasticity of your strands and makes it prone to breakage. In order to prevent breakage, you must moisturize your hair on a very regular basis. It can get a little tedious having to constantly re-moisturize your hair throughout the day.

4. Color Increases Dryness
In addition to making your hair break a lot easier, your hair will also be a lot dryer if you decide to color it. All coloring products interacts with the inner hair shaft. When this part of the hair gets colored, it weakens the protective cuticle layer of your hair. What does this mean? You guessed it. It makes it so your hair doesn't retain moisture as well. As mentioned previously, anyone that wants to color their hair has to be ready for a very strict regimen when it comes to moisturizing their hair. If that's too much for you, you probably shouldn't bother coloring your hair.

5. You May Not Look Like the Model On the Box
There is no reversing your hair color. If you really wanted to color your hair blue, only to find out that you don't look as good in blue as you thought, that's tough luck. There's no turning back once you color your hair. Coloring it again, directly after, is just asking for trouble.

All in all, it's very important that you take these things into consideration before you decide to color your hair. While a lot of people do color their hair, doing it poorly can have an irreversible effect on your hair. The easiest and safest way to color your hair is by using lace wigs. Plenty of celebrities like Tyra Banks, Nicki Minaj, and Beyonce use lace wigs and lace front wigs. This is a great alternative for those that still want to change their hair, but don't feel like going through the risk of actually getting it colored. It looks just as good and it isn't nearly as damaging.
