If you are coloring your hair, you have probably wondered whether there are natural alternatives to all the “chemistry” in commercial hair-dyes without the nasty smell of ammonia and the effects of Hydrogen Peroxide.
The simple truth about all-natural hair dyes is:
Ø They are not always all-natural, despite claims to the contrary.
Ø They are inconvenient to use, messy to apply and need to develop for a very long time.
Ø They don’t cover grey hair well.
Ø Range of available shades is very limited.
Ø They cannot lighten hair
IF ALL-NATURAL COLORS WOULD TRULY WORK, EVERYONE, INCLUDING SALONS WOULD USE THEM.
What's your skin tone?
You've probably heard of cool and warm skin tone.
You may have read about summer type, autumn type or spring type, categorising skin tones into four seasonal types.
Pull your hair back into a ponytail and look straight into the mirror. What is your shape?
Why do most people and even hairstylists find it so hard to determine facial shapes?
It's due to the fact that most people don't have a textbook round or square shape.

Use only high quality tools like combs, brushes, clips and ties for good results and healthy hair. Especially heat-styling tools like hot irons can ruin your hair..
Is this what you are shown when you ask for a color consultation? If your stylist is showing you a color-chart to choose from, beware, you're in the wrong salon. It is akin to your doctor showing you his medical school books to discuss your symptoms. A good doctor would not do that and neither would a colorist who is any good. Bring a magazine, pictures from the web on iPad or phone.
An experienced colorist will ask about previous treatments, such as re-bond, highlights, henna etc.
A well-trained colorist may suggest a test-strand or an allergy test before the actual procedure.
Tip: If you plan on a new hair color, don't wear a blue, yellow, red or green shirt/ blouse.
Why? Because strong primary and secondary colors will reflect on your skin and change your natural skin tone. Instead, wear beige or off- white for best results.
