So, you’re looking for a way to put a little oomph to your hair for summer? Whether, you opt for a temporary or permanent hair color, there are a few pros and cons to coloring your hair. Here are some of them.
Enhance your appearance
If you are tired of the same old look, you can enhance your appearance by coloring your hair. Lighter hair gives you a fresher appearance and makes you look younger; while darker hair makes for a more mature and dramatic look.
Time for a change
Whether it is ombre, highlights or a full-headed color, dyeing your hair allows for a change of appearance. This change could be as dramatic or as subtle as you want, depending on the color or shade you choose.
Temporary hair dye is a gift to women as it allows you to alter your appearance to suit the occasion or your mood. For instance, you can decide to wear a wild shade in preparation for a night out with friends then wash it off as you prepare for work.
May cause damage
Let’s face it. Coloring can make you look beautiful, but it can also damage your hair. This is especially true if you color your hair often. Dyes and colors use a high pH in order to force the hair strands open and deposit color into them. That being said, your hair should be properly cared for during and after the process.
This might be quite obvious, but we would like to reiterate the importance of maintaining your hair color. If you have a full-head hair color, we recommend having it touched up every 4 to 6 weeks; highlights, on the other hand, needs to be touched up every 8 to 10 weeks.
Can be expensive
As mentioned earlier, hair color requires maintenance. Salon visits cost money. That being said, it is important to sit and down and talk to your stylist about the cost of color application and touch ups. You can also work with your stylist to formulate a color that would suit you best.
