So, you want to add color to your hair but you aren’t quite sure which color or how long you want it to last. What are your options?
If you plan to add color to your hair, the first thing you want to determine is “How Long?”. How long do you want to wear this color? Will a weekend or a day do for you or do you plan to keep this color for a couple months? The next question is “Which Color?”. With all the variation of colors available, the sky is the limit,….literally.
If you only plan to wear the color for a day or so, there are plenty of color creams or sprays that you can use on your hair to add color until your next wash. If you plan to wear the color for a week or so, there are some semi-perm colors that will work perfectly. For additional color stay, you can apply heat during the process to keep the color an additional week or so. If you are considering something more “long term”, try a permanent color. (Please note: Temporary shades will fade and possibly bleed onto light colored clothing.)
Do you have a favorite color, team or school you want to represent? Or maybe a blend of colors is more down your alley. Again, the sky is the limit however if you plan to use different shades, be sure to keep the colors separate so they do not bleed into each other. Also note, the lighter your hair, the brighter the color will be. If you hair is dark brown or black, the color may only show up in the sun if you use darker shades such as red, hot pink, purple, burgundy, etc. whereas shades like yellow or orange may not show up at all. If you have dark hair and desire brighter shades, you will need to lighten your hair for the colors to show “true”.
