Get a New Look by Coloring Your Hair
Among the most popular ways today, among men and women especially, to create a new look and excite their personality is to change the color of one’s hair. Color is simply described as the way light reflects from pigments, and you have these two main kinds of color which are the warm shades like red-yellow and the cool shades like red-blue.
To know what sort of coloring you will take, there are some pointers that you can follow.
For people having a skin tone of ivory, peach, creamy beige, light or dark golden brown, or coppery colored, and with eyes color in blue, blue-green, hazel, light green, amber, or coffee colored, then your category is a warm color, and for this your hair will look best in shades from gold with red highlights, gold or honey brown, copper or mahogany.
If you have a skin tone in the category or rosy pink or beige, dark olive, dark brown, or ebony, and your eyes show light or dark blue, deep green, brown or black, therefore your coloring is in the cool category and you should choose the shades of burgundy highlights, ash or platinum blonde, brown, dark brown, black, gray or white for your hair color.
A permanent hair color for your information has two basic ingredients such as ammonia and hydrogen peroxide. The objective of ammonia is opening the cuticle of the hair shaft which afterwards pave the way of color molecules to enter. The objective of the hydrogen peroxide on the other hand is for bleaching the hair so that your new color can be added and the desired shade can be created.
From dark hair to lighter, know that there are two steps that will be done, and the first is to bleach and second is to add the new color. If your hair is light colored and you want to have it darker, then you only have one step to undergo which is the addition of the new color.
Hair coloring has three levels depending on how long the coloring would last, and these are the semi-permanent hair color or level 1, the demi-permanent hair color or level 2, and permanent hair color or level 3 .
For a semi-permanent hair color or level 1, the color molecules are very minute that they go through the cuticle of the hair, into the cortex where the natural hair color is, and do not mix with the natural pigment of the hair. For level 2 or demi-permanent hair color, the color molecules are also very small, they go through into the cortex and combine with each other forming bigger molecules.
