Who hasn’t, at some point in their lives, stood in front of the drugstore or supermarket aisle, contemplating on whether you should pick up that box of Kolours and do a DIY hair change? Or maybe you’ve just marveled at other people’s amazingly-colored locks and thought to yourself: “Someday, someday…”
Well, we’re here to help you make that decision. We’ve listed down a couple of reasons why you SHOULD color your hair - and the things you have to consider before making that colorful jump.
Coloring Highlights Your Other Features
Whether you want to direct more attention to your eyes, your lips, or even your skin color, changing your hair color can highlight other body features. Brown eyes, for example, pop the most with an ashy blonde or golden browns. Wanna complement your morena skin? Skip the really dark tones and go for ambers or burgundies. Depending on the shade you pick, a very good dye job creates the perfect backdrop for you to make your other features stand out.
Coloring Adds Body
If you have limp locks and want to give your tresses a good plumping, coloring it can actually add more body. That’s because the dye gets deposited into the shafts of your strands making it look fuller than ever before. So you’re not only lifting your spirits, you’re lifting your locks!
Coloring Gives Your Hair Sun Protection
It may come as a surprise but coloring your hair properly - that is, making sure the dye penetrates all the strands - actually helps protect it from sun damage! Melanin, the pigment that gives hair its color, helps protect it from sun exposure. So the darker your hair, the more melanin it has, and the more protected it is from the sun. In a study, researchers discovered that melanin is only found in the cortex of your hair; but when you dye your hair properly, the color gets deposited deep into the cuticles and even the fibers of your locks, protecting your hair from prolonged exposure to the sun!
Coloring Gives You More Confidence
Just like how a great cut boosts your confidence, coloring your hair adds a lot of excitement to what otherwise would be an ordinary look. Whether it’s adding a highlight, lowlight, or changing the whole color scheme of your hair, coloring is a great pick-me-upper for those times when you just need a little bit more attention.
Coloring Can Be A Form of Self-Care
Aside from forcing you to sit still for a few minutes, patiently waiting for the color to set in to see the end results, being able to say that you are in charge of what your hair looks like gives back that sense of control for you. It may sound like a stretch for most people, but coloring your hair can be a highly empowering experience!
Coloring Can Be A Lesson in Commitment
Once you’ve decided that you want to color your hair, understand that it will require some commitment. Making sure your hair stays healthy during and after coloring will require time, effort, and some money. Always make sure to prepare beforehand, do some proper research, put some trust in yourself and in the right brands, and commit to the process even when things won’t always go right every time. With Kolours, you’ll love your hair colors for a long time, as long as you don’t forget to retouch your roots every now and then for lasting results. It’s a commitment that may seem intimidating at first, but the results are definitely worth it. And if you’re ready to try out something new, like, let’s say trying out a different hair color, Kolours is always here to help make your new hair color a reality!
Coloring Can Teach You About Making Informed Choices
Choosing the right hair dyes from an expansive selection of brands can indeed be overwhelming, but being spoiled for choice can be a great opportunity to inform yourself of the many aspects to consider when coloring your hair. Making informed choices can also teach you a lot about your own personal hair care needs and the right brands to address them.
