The first thing that you need to do to find the right hair color for you is to decide how long you want the coloring to last. If you want to add a pinch of color to your hair for just a party, a special occasion or to make up your mood, then you would use a temporary hair coloring. Temporary hair coloring is usually an acid based formula that is designed to only coat the hair strand instead of penetrating the hair shaft. This results in coloring getting washed out after a few hair wash.
Semi-permanent hair coloring is another hair color option that you have. If you are looking for a more permanent hair dye, then you may want to consider a semi-permanent hair coloring. This treatment uses a hair color cream that has a mild developer. This type of coloring will typically last a few months. Moreover, this option is great for covering grey hair.
Semi-permanent hair coloring lasts longer than temporary hair coloring because it has small molecules which get soaked into the hair shaft. However, semi-permanent hair coloring does not use a strong developer so it doesn’t last as long as permanent hair coloring does.
After selecting the length of time that your hair color will last your next choice is to determine whether you want natural or chemical hair coloring. Natural hair colorants will typically create a temporary hair tint. Some of the natural hair tints that you can use include cranberry juice, tea, and henna. Chemical hair coloring agents can be found in do-it-yourself hair coloring kits and they can also be found at your local hair salon. Natural hair colorants are gentler on your hair and skin then chemical hair coloring agents.
The final thing is that you need to decide the color for your hair. If you are looking for hair color ideas, then you can always look for a hair model celebrity who has the same skin tone as you do to analyze which hair color will suit you the best. You can also ask a cosmetologist to help you select the right hair base color and highlight colors.
