If you have never colored your hair before, it can seem daunting. How can you cover gray to make it look like your natural hair color? Should you do it yourself? We wanted to give some answers on commonly asked questions when it comes to coloring your hair.
Should you use a professional?
Yes. Especially if you have never colored your hair before, have a professional do it for you. They will help you pick the best color for you based on your skin tone, ensure it is applied evenly and correctly, and get results wanted without damaging your hair.
What type of color should you use to cover gray hair?
Use a permanent color to cover gray hair. If you have more than 50% gray hair, a permanent hair color will cover gray hair depending on what formula and brand is used.
Will you damage your hair by coloring it?
This depends on how healthy your hair is and what type of color is used (permanent, demi-permanent, semi-permanent). Always ask a professional at Aveda Institute what they suggest.
How often should you color your hair?
Typically it is suggested to wait 6 weeks between getting colored. This also depends on the health of your hair. Consult a professional at Aveda Institute if in doubt.
Is it safe to color your hair while pregnant?
If you want to start or continue coloring your hair while pregnant, your best bet is to use ammonia-free hair color and opt for highlights over all-over hair color. Always consult your doctor if you have questions.
