The present fashion demands different types of hair colouring that includes highlighting and using unusual colours as well. Before you opt hair colouring, you should know about its side effects and if possible take precautions and then go for hair colouring. Learn about everything related to hair dye. Read on to know all about this.

Hair is termed as our crowning glory. Women as well as men are changing colour of their hair more often than ever. Is it that they are looking for a perfect colour for their hair or simply want to change the look? May be both reasons are right. But just as there are different colours, there are varieties of brands that claim to be the best.

Before you go for hair colouring, you should be aware of the side effects of hair colouring. Although dyes have their effects on hair, the condition of the hair before colouring also matters a lot.

Side Effects of Hair Colouring are

  • Poor quality - If the quality of the dye is poor it will have adverse effect on the hair of the person. Many people like to save money and do not opt for good quality hair dyes or colours. However it is not essential that the hair colour that is the costliest will not have any side effect on your hair. There are other factors also that matter and other reasons of bad effects of hair colouring.

  • Application not done properly- Nowadays youngsters are going after highlighting their hair. This has very bad impact on the health of the hair. However, applying it properly and with proper precautions can save your hair to a great extent. The looks also get affected if highlighting is not done properly.

  • Over treating - Over treating happens when the colour or the dye is left on hair for longer period of time. Even if a relaxer or perm is left for longer time on the hair for more than it should be left, it affects the hair badly.

  • Under treating - Colouring of hair takes time and the colour has to be left applied on hair for some time period. If the colour is not allowed to set and it is removed or washed before time, it will not be able to cover gray hair. If the intention is to highlight your hair, it will give faded results and you will not get the outcome that you wished.

  • Reactions due to allergy - Hair colour causes allergy to many people. This is why every hair colour company advices to take a patch test before applying the colour to your hair.

  • Bad effects of chemicals - Usually the hair colour that you will buy in the retail shop contains chemicals and since there are varieties of chemical used they have their effects on your hair. The chemicals may have adverse effects on your hair so it is essential that you find out the whereabouts of the dye you are using and then take the patch test so that you know whether it is safe for you or not.

Types of Hair Damage

Short-term hair damage is one that you can overcome as soon as you leave using that brand of hair dye. These are not dangerous and cause damage to your hair that can be rectified. However, there are long-term effects of these hair dyes also. Also, you will see allergic reactions even after you have used it for a long time. It has been observed that people develop and allergy even after a long time in life.

Another type of permanent damage is done to a women's hair when she straightens and colours her hair. Apart from this, overuse of dyes or leaving the dye for longer period of time and so on, also has bad impact on your hair and its health. If you can take precautions, hair dye is good for you.

Comments:   Ok, I definitely suoprpt people who wear their hair natural. I tried to wear it natural but I have a lot of hair and the only way I could wear it and have it look nice is if I cut it (my beautician told me this) but I love my hair so I could never do it. Plus, it´s a lot of work since my hair is really thick and it´s long My mom wears her hair natural and it´s beautiful and looks amazing on her. But I hate when people say to wear it any other way but natural is selfhating and it´s unnatural. So are white people who bleach their hair and curl it or straighten it everyday selfhating ? Or the term only apply to girls who wear weaves or perm their hair?i meant to say, it´s, well, unnatural Isn´t it unnatural for white girls to alter the look of their hair, too?White girls wear weaves too what do you call those clipon things? That´s not real hair.A lot of white actresses wear weaves too!WINTER BLOSSOM you are the same girl who said that you don´t like when black women wear weaves because it´s unnatural so my question for you is why do you care about how black women wear their hair?yeah sunshine same here!
