All about: Professional hair colour treatments

Choosing a professional hair colour treatment depends on the type of look you are going for. Here are some of the common treatments for styling hair through the use of colour.

Application methods

All over colour
The most popular choice for hairstyling with colour is by doing an all over colour. With this selection, the customer chooses a shade that they would like the colour of their hair to be overall. Most of the time, this choice is one dimensional, and no other shades appear in the hair. When deciding to colour one's hair permanently, it is best to choose a shade that is only a few shades different from the hair's natural shade. When the hair is dyed one colour, it is often applied with some sort of brush, and the dye is painted onto the hair in strokes. To achieve the best application, it is best to start at the roots and work your way down to the ends for an even coverage. Highlights and lowlights
The latest hair treatments include highlighting and lowlighting. The application for these two treatments is similar, but the treatments are different. Highlighting is the process by which lighter coloured streaks are placed in the hair, and lowlighting involves darker streaks placed in the hair. These two treatments can be applied by either the foil method, using a cap, or by balayage. In foiling, sections of hair are separated and covered with foil to keep the coloured hair from mixing with the hair that is not being coloured. When a cap is used, the cap is placed on the head and strands of hair are pulled through small holes in the cap. Once all the hair is pulled through, the hair is then covered in dye using a brush. The balayage method is followed by simply painting strands of hair with colour without using any foils.

Side effects

Allergies
There is always a risk involved when colouring hair, and one of those risks is an allergic reaction. When someone who is allergic to a particular chemical in hair dye comes in contact with the product, their skin may become irritated. Some other signs that one is having an allergic reaction may include redness, itchiness, discomfort, or a burning sensation where the hair dye was applied. Hair breakage
Another risk to colouring one's hair is hair breakage. The chemicals used in hair dye can be strong, and sometimes they can cause the hair to break if it is already weak to begin with. Over colouring hair can also increase the risk that it will break during the colouring process. It's best to wait 4-6 weeks before dyeing hair again.
