At some point in their lives most women have colored their hair. It may have been a slight change- a few streaks, a temporary hair color or maybe a few highlights. But many people know the fact that hair color styles can be the best way to change your overall appearance.
Understanding hair growth and structure can help keep you from making mistakes when it comes to coloring your hair. Hair is dead and is made from protein. It grows from hair follicles and new length is added at the top instead of the ends. This is how you can trim your hair and have it still grow. Your hair can look rough and damaged if the top layer is uneven. The more peroxide your hair dye contains the more permanent the dye job will be.
Truly permanent hair color needs to grow out as no amount of washing can remove it. This is because the peroxide locks it inside the hair shaft. Some hair colors are longer lasting due to the size of the dye particles. Red hair dye has the smallest particles and is the hardest to keep looking fresh. But oddly, it is also the hardest color to remove or color over and may unexpectedly show up in future dye jobs.
Whether it is a color found in nature or a more shocking shade, hair color can radically change your appearance. If you opt to lighten your hair it can make you look younger and can give a boost to your looks that you never expected.
