If you get your hair dyed regularly at the salon, you might have a good relationship with your hair stylist. Yet, there are probably some things he or she would like to tell you. Here are some things that hair stylists would like to tell their clients to do or to avoid doing:
- Don’t jump from one salon to another. If you’re worried about cost, you might use coupons or only go to salons when they’re having a special. But it can be difficult for stylists to color your hair properly when they’re always working with someone else’s work. It can take a few times for them to really get acquainted with your hair or find your perfect color.
- Use products designed for color-treated hair. Be sure to use shampoo, conditioner and deep conditioning treatments for color-treated hair or your hair can become very dry, damaged and even lose color faster. Remember that you might be spending a lot of money to color your hair, so you want it to look great and healthy for as long as possible.
- Don’t forget to get a trim. Your hair needs regular trims to stay healthy. If your hair is damaged at the ends, it will not grow as fast and it will stay dry and damaged.
- Don’t blindly follow trends. Ask your hairstylist what they think would look best on you with your natural hair color and skin tone. You can also incorporate trends in more natural ways. For example, instead of dying your hair totally pastel pink, you can add a few highlights underneath for a cool look that is easy to change when the trend ends.
- Stay within four shades of your natural color and ask your hairstylist for advice if you’re unsure of what colors will look best on you. If you get highlights, get them redone every 10 to 12 weeks. Coming in too soon for a highlight refresh can damage your hair.
- Lastly, this should be common sense, but don’t be rude. Be on time for your appointments, be polite, and don’t miss your appointments unless it’s a true emergency.
