Hair Color: Guide to Every Shade

Updated on June 20, 2015

Guide to Every Shade

Red hair colors tend to fade faster because they have the largest molecules. The molecule size makes it more difficult for red dyes to penetrate deeply into the hair, thus they dissipate more rapidly. So when going for a red, be sure to you are using hair color that maximizes high-definition color results with minimum stress to the hair’s cuticle. To keep your red hair in a deep shade of red do not forget to look for an intensive treatment hair care products. Be sure you have protective colour treatment mask which nourish your flocks as using it regularly. Shea butter, emollient and disentangling moisturizing inulin and protective Corallina officinalis extracts could be the composition of product.

When you wash color-treated hair, be sure to use a color-protecting shampoo. Using a good shampoo will help your color last longer and help maintain the health of your processed hair. Be sure to condition your color-treated hair every time with a color-protecting conditioner. Conditioned hair will help your color look shinier and even more. Even if you have fine hair, condition the tips, which are the oldest hairs on your head and have the most damage. Start at your ears and work your way down to the ends. It is strongly recommended to have a pair of the products - shampoo an conditioner of the same line of the products. For the coloured hair which need more attention, use special products for dyed flocks which are enriched with the anti-aging vitamin E, protective Corallina officinalis extract and moisturizing inulin.

Dark-dyed hair requires uncompromising dedication to the right hair care. Black hair can notoriously fade well before you want to make another trip to your stylist, but don’t fret. Preserve the color in your hair and you will make it last longer. You must diligently care for dark hair, which must have a lot of lustre to be appealing.

The colour pigments in your hair must be protected from UV light, which would otherwise bleach the pigments and reduce the colour intensity. If you are outdoors for longer periods of time you should protect your hair with UV protective hair spray even during the winter months. While on summer vacation you should pull out all stops in terms of UV protection. To keep your dark side in control use deep moisturising and conditioning products, masks or sprays, which will protect your hair from the undesirable UV impact to your flocks.

Every time you wash your dyed black hair you need to use special shampoos and rinses for colour treated hair. Weekly intensive cures help to keep the hair cuticles intact and the pigments inside the hair so that the hair colour lasts longer. For the longer lasting effect consider using masks for coloured hair or change the routine once or twice a week by combining using conditioner or mask every few days.

In order to create the most lustre in your black hair, cover the tips of your index and middle fingers with a droplet of pure keratin extract . These products are ideal for very damaged and chemically treated hair. Due to the antioxidant effect and linseed extract, the product leaves hair shiny and textured and can also be mixed in with hair colour. The extract does not weigh your hair down but it creates sensational shine (for example “Revi: Schock + Therapy” product).

Whether you were born with blonde hair or you’ve decided to lighten up your look at the salon, having more fun can come at a price, because blonde locks require a pretty specific maintenance routine. From keeping the color from turning brassy, making sure your ends don’t get dried out and protecting your hair from UV rays, there are some very important things to take into consideration when you’re a blonde.

If possible, use powdered bleach instead of liquid. Powdered bleach is less harsh than liquid, and will be much more gentle on your strands. For the perfect result and hair care we recommend Ammonia free bleach powder.

As a blonde, you should be gentle and wash less, whatever that means for your hair type. When it comes to choosing a shampoo and conditioner, look to formulas designed specifically for maintaining and protecting your color. Avoid anything harsh or stripping and opt for sulfate-free products.

Deep condition often your blond flocks. If you’ve bleached your hair to be a blonde, you’ve already stripped it of some color and moisture. To avoid looking like you’ve got straw for hair, use a deep conditioning treatment, and use it often.

If you're not a natural blonde it generally means your hair is damaged and dehydrated, or in other words, extremely thirsty. You've got to nourish it daily with a leave in-treatment that will repair and seal the cuticles.

Hats and scarves are the best immediate defense, but if you're hair is going to be in direct sunlight it's imperative that you prep it using a heat protection product with UV filters. Especially in the summer but also year round, use a UV protective spray and make sure you’re guarding your hair against harmful UV rays that can change the color and dry out strands.

As blondes, we're paranoid every dip into the pool is going to turn our light locks into an unsavory shade of green. The fact of the matter is, it's definitely a risk but there's plenty you can do to guard against it. Apply conditioner before entering the pool or ocean to create a barrier between your hair and the salt water or chlorine. After you come out of the water, rinse your hair as soon as possible to get rid of residue." If you swim frequently and notice a buildup or a greenish tinge, use a clarifying shampoo to remove it.

No Matter Which Color You Choose One There is Only One Tip You Shouldn’t Forget - Long-Lasting Hair Color Depends on Well-Conditioned Hair

Coloring your hair can cause it to become dry, especially if you don't use products that condition properly. However, colors are not the only danger. UV rays and heated styling tools like a blow dryer, curling iron or straightening iron can cause dry, split ends too. For extra shine, pamper your color-treated locks once a week with a deep-conditioning treatment. Even if you've never dyed, protect against heat damage (and add shine to your hair) with a creamy fluid (for example “By Techno Filler”). Pre-drying and pre-straightening product with re-mineralizing hydrolysed pearl. Ideal for fragile, brittle and damaged hair, it is packed with wheat and silk proteins, natural keratin and olive oil derivatives which nourish the hair, enhancing shine and fortifying.

Hottest Hair Color Trend of 2015?

Thinking of going lighter (or darker) for the sunny months? It's a good year for hair-painting purists and anyone tempted to try dye for the first time. But don't reach for the dye without checking out our guide to the hottest hair hues of the season, first. Move over, ombré! There’s a hot new hair color trends in town, and it's saturating the tresses of Hollywood's finest.

There's no doubt that ombre was the hair obsession of 2014, but the hot new color trend of this year might just be ecaille:

* The French word for tortoiseshell, this trending color is comprised of rich, warm tones—gold, caramel, chocolate, honey, mahogany—painted (not foiled) into the hair for a multidimensional effect.

To achieve the look, have your stylist focus on a few bolder, face-framing pieces in the front, complimented by softer, lighter painted pieces all around.

To get the look, use the balayage, or hair painting, technique with bleach to create different tones in the hair. The bleach is used to lighten the hair and will produce varied results based on the specific strands it’s applied on, as all the hair on your head isn’t generally one color. If hair is especially dark and hard to lift quickly with lightener (or before it dries out), they might backcomb the hair and apply lightener in something around the hair that will allow it to lift slower in areas you want without drying out the hair.

How to take care of it? After dyeing the hair do not forget to take a very good care of them - to make them look shiny and fabulous. Apply products enriched with the oils, such as aragon oil. Serums, masks or conditioners with the rich oils will make you flocks healthy and easy to style.

That's not the only trend we'll see this year. A few others are creeping into the color competition.

* There has been a real trend with platinum hair and I don't think it is going anywhere.Use silver shampoo for an ice white hue that's free from brassy tones. Platinum blonde locks may be prone to showing up roots, but don't feel you have to hide them - slick hair back into a low chignon to show off the contrast. Platinum waves are a great match for a tan.

* Meanwhile, reds will be deeper, richer shades of auburn. Metallic reds are on fire this year. Traditional red hues highlighted with hints of bronze (hence the "ronze") and copper for a glimmering, ultra-glossy effect.

After colouring your hair red you should not enter a swimming pool for up to two weeks because the negative effect of chlorinated water on the colour is even stronger than the effect of tab water. As soon as the red hair fades between colour treatments you can use a colour rinse in the matching shade. The rinse maintains the brilliance of the red colour.
