If you are looking for a hot new color, then choose orange for a change. It’s a shocking color that really stands out. You won’t find a brighter more eye-catching color than this one.
If you are going to color your hair with a bright shade, then there are a few things that you need to know. Personally, we think that everyone should try a bright shade at least once, but you need to know what you are getting into first.
Here are just a few things we have learned when it comes to bright shades.
- It Requires Bleaching Your Hair
There is no possible way to get a bright color without bleaching your hair. Unless you naturally have platinum blonde hair, you are going to have to lighten it up in order for the color to be vibrant. Most fashion colors are only semi-permanent, so they can’t lift the color of your hair. If you try to put a semi-permanent over your dark hair, it won’t do anything. If you are worried about damaging your hair, then a fashion color may not be for you.
- Drastic Color Changes Don’t Happen Overnight
Lightening your hair can be damaging, so you need to have your hair in pretty good condition before you start. To avoid a lot of damage to the hair, it’s best to take the bleaching process slowly. If you have a hair appointment, then try to avoid straightening to curling your hair for a few weeks to avoid damaging it further.
- Don’t Bleach It Yourself
It’s very important that you make sure that you have a professional bleach your hair, do not do it yourself. You run the risk of totally destroying your hair and that’s the last thing that you want to do. Trying to correct a bad bleaching job can be almost impossible to fix, so always go to a professional for these things.
- Products Are your New Best Friend
When you start bleaching your hair and using fashion colors, the best thing that you could do is to invest in hair care products. The kind of products that help to minimize color fading and help to replenish moisture back into the hair from the bleaching. Salon quality shampoos and conditioners will help to keep your hair as healthy as possible.
- The Color Will Fade
So now you have your bright orange hair and you are walking around like you are on cloud nine. Then after a few weeks, you notice the color has faded. When it comes to fashion shades there is a lot more upkeep involved then there would be with normal colors. It’s a little more high-maintenance. So as long as you are okay with constantly adding color to it, then you’ll be fine because you will have to get used to the fact that the color is always fading. When orange fades, it gets a really ugly coppery color so you may have to color it every week.
- You Will Have to Wash Your Hair in Cold Water
You will have to get used to washing your hair in cold water in order to preserve the color as much as possible. The cold water helps to prevent the color from fading.
- Some Colors Don’t Come Out
When it comes to fashion shades, they can be a little tricky and some of them won’t come out of the hair. We don’t mean that they will never come out, but it could take a while. The only way to get colors out that like to stick around is to either bleach it again or put a darker color over top of it.
- Prepare for Your Color to Be Everywhere
We are talking towels, shirts, pillow cases and your bathtub. Fashion colors fade easily and that means the colors is dripping somewhere when the hair is wet. It will stain anything white, your towels, or the pillow case that you sleep on. The best investment you could ever make is black towels and black pillow cases.
- Some People Won’t Like It
The thing about fashion colors is it brings about a lot of attention and some of it isn’t going to be good. Some people love fashion colors and you will receive a lot of compliments from them. But there are still some people that think it’s “too wild” or “attention-seeking” and they will not have a compliment to throw your way. You have to be prepared for people who aren’t going to like your hair.
That’s the best advice that we can give for anyone that wants to try out a fashion shade. Go in with all the knowledge that you can and do your research. This is not the kind of shade that you do yourself. It’s important that you go to a professional because they know how to handle different types of hair and the things that can go wrong when bleaching. So, don’t make the mistake of doing it yourself, get professional salon service when it comes using fashion shades.
Stick to these rules and you are sure to be eye-catching this summer with your bright orange hair. Fashion colors are incredibly fun to try, and we hope that everyone tries them out.
