Coloring Your Hair? What to Know

Coloring Your Hair? What do you need to know? If you are looking for a way to spice up your look, there is no better way to do so than coloring your hair. However, there are still some things you need to consider and be cautious of before going and getting your hair dyed

Things You Need To Be Careful Of

One thing we cannot press on more is that you should do your research first. Do not just go into your nearest salon and get your hair colored. That can be a recipe for absolute disaster. The reason why we want you to research is because some hair stylists are better at particular things than others.

If you are looking to getting a very bold color such as a vivacious red or a vibrant shade of blue, choose a hairstylist who is famous for doing bold colors. Avoid going to someone who works with more neutral tones or someone who works with natural colors.

How Often Can You Get Your Hair Colored?

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that you need to wait until your hair has fully recovered and healed from your previous dye. You should wait a minimum of six weeks before you get your next dye. This way, you give your hair time to replenish. Within those six weeks, you can take care of your damaged hair by doing treatments.

Do not worry because you don’t have to go to the salon and get expensive treatments. You can also work with at-home natural products to help care for your hair. One good technique is to deep condition it. You can make at home treatments or apply plant-based oil to help condition your hair back to healthy.

How Often Should You Wash Your Hair?

If you shampoo your hair every day, your hair color will fade faster than you can imagine. If you don’t take proper care of your dyed hair and use the right color, your hair dye will fade out pretty quickly, especially bright colors like pink.  If you have dyed your hair blonde, make sure you use a good quality purple shampoo. It will keep your blond hair looking fresh and cool-toned.


If you are getting the entirety of your hair dyed, touch-ups are going to be your number one concern until you decide to let the color fade out. For example, if you have naturally blonde hair and you decide to get your hair dyed purple, you will have to frequently get touchups because your hair grows half an inch every month. If it’s difficult for you to get a touch up every month or two, what you can do is get a hair color closer to your root color. This way, it isn’t as noticeable when your hair grows out.

Like we mentioned before, you should always do your research before getting your hair colored. In addition, you should never try to color your hair at home.
