1- Hair’s integrity.
Hair ’s integrity.
When going lighter with your hair color, such hi-lighting you are actually compromising your hair’s integrity.
-The lighter you want to go the drier the hair will feel and appear. Also
-the darker the base color the harder it is to lighten without orange. However, it does not mean that you cannot get there. Most of the times it requires multiple applications.
Coloring hair is a science and an art, it takes time and a lot of thinking to create color formulations throughout the process. Formulating applies for toning and coloring
When going to a salon for the first time. The stylist will need to know the services that were previously performed on hair. So be truthful. . . . TIP, whether you are going dark to light or light to dark hair, will need multiple visits. To go from dark to light you will need multiple visits to achieve the desired level.
Going too light too fast will result in dry, brittle, hair that can crack. Most important no matter what service you decide on, hair treatments are a must to improve the health of the hair. This is mandatory after each hi-lighting service.
When going from dark color to lighter color during the hi-lighting process, such as brunette to blonde. Hair color goes in different stages of undertones, such as red, red-orange, orange-gold, gold, blonde than lightest blonde. Most of the hair colors get stuck on red, orange and gold. This happens because of 2 reasons
A- the lightener stops working or weakens after 50 minutes,
B- red and orange undertones are the hardest to remove from hair. This is simply the law of color.
So, in this case, you as a consumer (your hairdresser’s help) should decide whether you want to go lighter or tone down orange pigmentations. If you decide to tone highlights could look darker. If you decide to go lighter again you are weakening hair fibers.
