Do you like the way new releases come to life for your locks? Disrupt your hair color and fix it quickly? Whatever the reason for the change, remember that there are limits to how long you can dye your hair. Excessive use of dyes can turn your hair into a mess and even cause it to fall out.
But where is the line between the beautiful color and the damaged one? You know, it’s different for everyone. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your hair.
Permanent color is a tough color option and also a great commitment. Combined with chemicals such as ammonia and hydrogen peroxide, these formulas open up the hair follicles and permanently alter their internal structure.
It is best to wait at least two months before using permanent paint again to avoid further damage — and only touch the roots.
This type of dye is very hard on the hair, so Choi recommends it whenever possible and usually recommends other options to the client. Basically, you need to wait for it to grow naturally or to retain its color. Choi joked, “I always ask customers, ‘Are you determined to do this until you become a grandfather? ‘”
There is some evidence that certain permanent dyes can be harmful to your health. Many problem chemicals were removed from color formulas in the 1970s, but there is not much recent research to determine whether existing chemicals are safe.
Semi or permanent permanent hair color is much heavier than permanent hair color. And commitment: if you are Phoebe, you can relax – it will not last forever. (Demi shuts down about 30 sinks, partly about 5)
Although it is molded without ammonia, it may contain a small amount of peroxide to remove the paint so that it holds your lock.
Depending on the condition of your hair, you should be able to dye it safely every week for up to a month — or in 4 to 10 washes.
But remember that modesty is key. Do not try to apply too many colors in a few weeks – you will need the existing shade to wash first. “You know when you’re small – if you try to mix your Napolean ice cream, it will turn brown!”
Bleach mainly contains hydrogen peroxide, which “lifts” your natural hair color to a lighter color. Locks may be slightly broken or dry, as the foil will peel off without proper care.
Although bleach can be powerful, Choi says you can make an appointment to touch it as soon as your roots start to grow. Try to stop the heating system as soon as possible, she advises.

Do you like your new look? Here’s how to help keep it that way.
How to prevent injury
When you leave the salon, your newly dyed hair may look incredible, but it takes some effort to keep it green. Here are some things to keep in mind.
- Reduce heat. Limit drying, bending or straightening as much as possible to remove dry, damaged hair. Always use a heat-resistant product when you feel the burning sensation, which will cover your fibers. “It’s not just a daily exercise,” says Choi.
- Use the right products. Choi recommends using a balanced pH product, which prevents hair loss, fights breakage and packs in healthy oils. She also advises you to use “hair sunscreen” because yes – your hair can also withstand sun damage. And don’t forget hair masks, deep conditioners and other moisturizing treatments!
- Think of your skull. “Healthy skulls contribute to long-term hair health,” says Choi. So be sure to wash your shampoo thoroughly (but not too often!) To avoid excessive accumulation, oil or dryness. It is wise to stay away from things that hurt the head, such as very narrow metal brushes and tails.
How to get lasting color
You don’t just have to worry about the health of your hair. There are also many ways to prolong your hair color.
- Choose a color-safe wash and conditioner. Ideally, choose a combination of shampoo and conditioner designed specifically for colored hair. While some products contain strong soaps that can dye your hair, others work to preserve the natural oils. Talk to a professional about your options.
- Tone it. Wait, why is your hair suddenly orange ?! If you go lightly, use a purple candle or toner to maintain your desired color, or go to your colorist for regular toner applications. Do not overdo it on these products.
- Wash thoroughly. Most hair types do not need to be washed every day. To keep your color partial, consider reducing it every two days or a few times a week. Of course, if your scalp is oily, oily or dirty – it’s time to trim.
The general rule is to wait 4 to 6 weeks between hair dyes, but this figure can vary widely depending on your particular hair type, color, and style.
