The Semi-Permanent Colorant

The best way to change your hair color to a lighter shade is slowly and properly with little cost is to start using a Semi-Permanent colorant. It will blend in the roots with the hair shaft and also give shine to your over all hair strand. For the first few application you should only use the shade closest to your present hair color if it is tinted. Then you can mix this formula with a lighter shade and it will blend in better as it grows out. This is also the very best way to color your hair at home for a color change, if you simply can’t find the money in your budget at the moment.  Semi-Permanent color will help your hair stay healthy and have the shine you want. If you just can’t wait then you will need to go to the professional and book for a color consultation. The Semi-Permanent way is also easy to keep up because this formula shampoos out within about two weeks.

It is much easier to go darker because you won’t damage your hair so much. All you need to do is go deeper than the base shade of your natural hair color. If already tinting your hair all you need to do is go deeper than your new-growth at the scalp. Then bring the color out through the ends to make sure you match the whole hair strand. If you do decide to go deeper you should shampoo and dry your hair before color so the color will take better. The professional will know this so you won’t need to worry when you go to the salon.

When you go to the salon be sure you do the consultation for a full hair color change because as you may have been told all hair colorist know the same thing…this is flat out wrong. I am sorry to say this but as in any profession there is a big difference in the education and the desire to be the best in their profession. I wish this was not so in the profession I love but it is. This being said, it is not a reason to do your own hair color if you don’t know how, because this could cost you a lot more than your time.

My final note on changing your hair color from dark to a lighter brown is to never do it yourself. You will be sick if you do it yourself, because you will have red-brown roots and dark brown ends. It will never turn out to be what you want because of the underlining rules of hair color.

I have more information coming up about this problem with color changes, so watch for it.

Also you may not know this but not all hair colorist in these areas are over the top with their pricing.
