Colouring your hair adds depth, sheen, and highlights and is more than just touching up the grey strands. People consider their hair an expression of personality, and in some cases, creativity, but hair colouring doesn’t always go as planned.

Many factors play a part in how your hair colour will turn out, and every hairstylist has had to perform an emergency hair dye correction.

There are ways, however, to prevent hair colour mishaps and achieve the perfect hair colour style for you. Picking a nice salon is not enough; do your research and work with a reputable and experienced stylist.

Trust Your Hairstylist to do Your Hair Colour

Boxed hair dye is inexpensive, quick, and convenient. However, you have to rely on the box’s colour interpretation and hope it is accurate. In addition, your hair tone and previous dye jobs will affect the outcome of your at-home treatment.

Trained to match hair colour properly, a professional hairstylist has dye samples to match directly with your hair. Bleaching your own hair or adding exciting colours could lead to severe hair damage.

Your hairstylist can match, mix and apply quality hair dye products to ensure you get the desired hair colour and avoid disastrous results from trying to dye your hair at home. 

Keep Your Hair Healthy

Hair health greatly impacts how your hair accepts dyes and handles chemical treatments. If your hair is unhealthy, you could experience discolouration, fragile strands, or even breakage.

Here are some tips for keeping your hair in pristine condition:

  • Brush your hair while it is dry to prevent breakage when your hair is wet.
  • Use a nickel-size portion of conditioner, not more, from the mid-shaft of the hair up to your scalp.
  • Use hair masks at least once a week.
  • Maintain a protein-rich and balanced diet.
  • Watch for strengthening ingredients in hair care products like coconut oil, argan oil, aloe, and spirulina.
  • Reduce the water temperature when you are washing your hair.
  • Protect your hair from harmful UV rays.
  • Maintain a healthy scalp. If your skin is stressed, your hair isn’t healthy either.
  • Sleep on a silk pillow to reduce friction on your hair strands.
  • Style your hair with ionic and ceramic hot tools.
  • Keep your hair trimmed regularly.

If you are unsure what condition your hair is in, discuss it with your hairstylist or colourist on your next visit to the salon.

Find Photos for Inspiration

It is common to bring photos to the salon when considering a new hairstyle. Photographs help your stylist interpret what you are asking for with an exact image to use as a guide. A picture can save you from miscommunicating your wishes or using incorrect terminology.

In some cases, your hair colour or texture may make it challenging to accomplish the look in the photo; however, your stylist should be able to offer ideas to arrive at a satisfactory compromise. 

If you are still unsure, you can ask your stylist: What hair colour suits me?

Be Honest and Answer Your Hairstylist’s Questions Truthfully

It can be embarrassing to admit to self-administered hair treatments, but your hairstylist needs to know what products you have been using to assess your hair correctly. 

Without an accurate hair history, your stylist may not be able to accomplish the nice hair colours you want. 

With an accurate history and understanding of your hair care regimen, your stylist can recommend a hair dye and aftercare plan to ensure your colour lasts as long as possible between visits.
