Coloring your hair is easy; when it comes to change, women take charge. But the beauty industry is rich with hairdressers that will do whatever you want without consideration of forfeiting texture, porosity or the damage that can occur from over-coloring hair.
But, I'm here to give you the low down on what you should expect when you go for the gold. Anyone considering changing their color should ask themselves, "how light do I want to go, how natural will it look with my skin tone and can I maintain it when the roots grow in"? And they do.
Conversely, if you're thinking of going darker to cover gray, you should know that no matter how dark your natural color was, too great a contrast from regrowth can point a painful arrow that says, "she doesn't have time to cover her own gray." So, think of your lifestyle, your work schedule and how low maintenance can equal high performance. Avoid the hair color disasters and you'll avoid the need for hair color repair.
Great color should compliment you and play up the features that need accent. It's okay if it's for fun or maybe you just want some drama and change. Stirring up the pot can make life more interesting, as long as you have control of the spoon. There are always solutions, and together we can avoid some of the problems.
