Dr. Phillips, Florida 32819 haircolor advice for the consumer!

“Which hair color works best on grays?”  If it is done right, permanent hair color doesn’t damage hair and it’s the best way to cover gray, that’s what it’s made for. If you’re concerned that your hair will get damaged from coloring it too often, simply touch up your roots when needed — no need to color the entire strand. If you dye it from roots to ends every time, your ends will gradually become more saturated and you’ll end up with unintentional two-tone hair.

“I touched up my gray roots a week and a half ago and within a week they were already lighter than the rest of my hair. I already use color-treated shampoo and conditioner.” It sounds like you’re using the wrong color when doing the roots. Hair color should last three to six weeks or until the roots start to grow out. The ashier the color, the less gray coverage. The warmer the color, the better for covering grays.  Also, be sure that you’re using a permanent color that’s intended for covering gray because semi-permanent color simply can’t offer the same coverage. And, continue using color-treated hair products in the shower because they will help keep color truer longer in our salon we use Kalea Rose Haircare!

“I have really dark hair and I’m considering coloring it red. What’s the healthiest and most effective way to get the specific hue that I want? Should I go to a professional or buy a box at the drugstore?” The best way to get the right hair color is to go to a professional.  If you pick the wrong red shade you (or we) may not be able to get it out or fix it. And, when it comes to choosing the hue. When you go red, it should be a red that appears naturally, not a red that appears on a clown or a vegetable. Look for coppery, cinnamon, strawberry and auburn reds. Avoid aubergine, cherry, orange and pumpkin hues. If it doesn’t appear in [natural hair color], it won’t appear natural on you. Never use store bought hair color.

“How can you extend the life of hair color while combating dandruff? I haven’t found an anti-dandruff shampoo that doesn’t cause my hair to fade.” Unfortunately, all anti-dandruff shampoos cause color fading, because they are like a medicine for your scalp. The only way to extend the life of any hair color is to use the right [color-formulated] shampoo and conditioner. But, I recommend asking your doctor how long you need to use the anti-dandruff formula and to inquire whether there are other options for treating it.

 “Can I get highlights if I’ve already dyed my hair?” This is absolutely an acceptable practice. In fact, for most clients, I color them and, highlight them at the same time. Highlighting color-treated hair is that “it looks more natural.”

Highlighting Very Dark Hair From Joseph Kellner In Orlando, Florida 32836

The trend for styling and coloring hair always keeps on changing. All of us like to experiment with our hair to look different and younger than our age. Hair highlighting is a simple method to add style and color to natural hair. In contrary to the hair coloring method, hair highlights involve dyeing a few strands of hair. Usually, highlighting is done in the focal points of a haircut style in order to make it more defined. It is an ideal solution for those who do not want to completely alter their hair color.

Hair color highlights mostly come in brighter shades, of which some have metallic tints. The suitability of the highlighting shade varies as per the natural hair color and skin tone of the person. Hence, while choosing the right hair color or hair highlights, certain factors are to be taken into consideration, so that you will not regret with the results of highlighting. Selecting the perfect highlights for dark hair is really a challenge, as the shades of highlights and natural hair are contrast to each other. Nevertheless, with some careful tips, you will look glamorous by highlighting dark hair.

Choosing Highlights for Dark Hair

While choosing highlights for any hair color, the color should be such that it is two shades lighter than the natural hair color. Nevertheless, for those who want to sport a hairstyle with contrasting strands, then golden and reddish shades are perfect options. Many of the brunettes look fabulous with any sort of hair highlights, while some require hair dyeing again, as the highlights do not match with their hair color. Another preferable alternative for highlighting dark hair is weaving in more than three shades.

Whatever be the option you have decided, the basic trend behind selecting highlights for darker hair is to opt for lighter shades. At any point of time, do not finalize shades that are more than three-times lighter than your original hair color. An easy way is to check out highlight kits for dark hair that are available in the market. While purchasing, make sure you select a reliable brand with a good track record, which has many satisfied customers. Highlighting dark hair  is a simple procedure. You can do on your own if you are familiar with the basic hair coloring tips. In case, you are confused with the shades, consult an experienced hairstylist for suggestions. He/she is the best person to give you tips about the perfect highlight shades and application methods.
Tips for Highlighting Dark Hair

So, you have finalized the highlights for your hair and are planning to apply them. There are two ways of highlighting your hair, either you can get it done by a professional hairdresser in a salon, or you can do it on your own at home. If you are new to hair highlighting and hair coloring, then do not take the risk of self-applying them. Rather, visit a hairdresser for highlighting your tresses. Once you become aware about the basic tips and tricks, you can surely do it yourself.

There are several ways to apply highlights for dark hair. To mention a few, you can opt for hair painting (brush used for highlighting), foil hair highlighting (applied by using foils), lowlighting (highlighting with a lighter shade), and chunking (applied in chunks of hair). Your hairstylist will follow a suitable method depending upon your hair type and highlighting option.

Dark hair highlights can give you a stylish and sophisticated look. Select shades that blend with your natural hair to give you a more subtle look.
