Women lighten their curls in two cases - after unsuccessful coloring, when you want to change the color of the hair, or to give your natural shade of lighter tones. Lightening is carried out with a rather aggressive chemical components, as a result of which in the absolute majority of cases the hair structure suffers - the hair rod dries out, breaks down, falls out. Also, the expected outcome may be completely different from what you want to see on your head.
It is best to lighten natural strands of hair. If you want to lighten up after persistent permanent dyes - the result is never accurately predictable. Skilled and responsible specialist is unlikely to agree to provide you with a service for hair discoloration, whether they have been exposed to henna or bass.
On natural strands after clarification the problem is usually yellowing. If the discolouration expose the hair previously dyed, they may become any color - green, blue, brown, red. In such cases, many women do not dare to go to another stage of clarification, but try to paint an unfortunate shade with persistent dyes.
How long will it take?
Having received unsatisfactory bleaching results for women immediately raises the question as to when it is possible to paint the loops in another color.Of course, any woman would like to look beautiful quickly, but its not that simple. First of all, you need to assess the condition of your hair after lightening. If the strands are dry and brittle, it is possible to affect them with chemical dyes in not earlier than 10-14 days. Neglecting such terms can result in total hair loss - they fall apart and fall.
So that during these two weeks you can feel more or less calm, not hesitating to go outside, experienced craftsmen give a number of useful tips.
Use shaded shampoos - they will help not only to eliminate yellowness, but also to tone slightly in any shade you choose your curls. Shadow shampoo will not dry your hair any more than it has ever happened, but will help correct their color. In addition, the resulting shade through several procedures of washing the head with a conventional shampoo will be washed off your hair. A further advantage of shadow means that, after them, you can safely paint the strands with any persistent paint. These two products do not come into conflict - the paint will perfectly lie on your hair and close the shade that was left after toning with shampoo.
Prepare your hair for the upcoming coloring - for those two weeks that you need to take in the form of a pause between lightening and subsequent permanent coloring, you need to try to restore your curls. To that end, they must be provided with appropriate care and treatment. Pay attention to the shampoo - now your hair is better suited to products without sulphate. Water for washing the head should be used soft - profiled and boiled. After washing, rinse locks with herb decoctions - camomile, stinging nettle, sage, mint, burdock roots. Be sure to apply feeding masks and oils twice a week.
During this time, you will have to give up the use of a hot hair dryer, ironing and curls, which you would use to dry and style the hairstyles.
After two weeks of care for a couple of days before the moment of staining, your locks need to moisturize. To do this, special hydrating masks suitable for industrial production or homemade cooking.
How is staining done?
To paint the lightened strands of hair, it is necessary to perform the procedure carefully, adhering to the following rules:
- hair is divided into 4 working areas and we apply paint first of all to the root area of the hair, so we do with each zone;
- now you need to quickly distribute the paint along the entire length of the strands;
- for uniform distribution of the color, the hair is combed with a comb with rare teeth;
- we bear the time demanded by the instructions for the effect of the paint on the hair;
- 5 minutes before the end of the period of exposure of the paint, it should be emulsified - the hair is slightly moisturized, and massage moves distribute the paint on them;
- wash off the paint with water using shampoo;
- apply a nourishing balm over the entire length of the hair.
- It is undesirable to wash the hair for up to two days, because during this period the coloring is fixed inside the structure of the hair stem.
Coloration of the hair after lightening can be either towards even more lightening or in the direction of transition to dark color.
Transition to a lighter shade
To get a clear tint of blonde, you will need to lighten with a special powder, then give the desired tint of hair toned with paint.Only then can be painted brown, ashen or blond honey. Remove the yellowness of the lighted hair with the help of ammonia-free paints. To solve this problem, you need to take ash shades.
There are some rules that colorists use when you need to make the transition of color in a lighter shade:
- the relief must be made immediately not above 1-3 tonnes;If the original hair color has a yellow subtype, then the paint should be chosen with the content of purple pigments;
- determine the initial shade - warm or cold;
For cool shadow we choose cool spectrum colors, for warm shades - hot spectrum.
It is sometimes necessary to lighten the previously colored hair in several ways - the procedure has to be repeated at a two-week interval.
To color your hair properly after the thinning procedure, colorists suggest you follow simple rules.
Coloring discoloured strands in darker tones is best started with ash tones. Only then can you go through the repetitive steps of colouring, and already apply dark shades. If you start with dark colors at once, there is a risk that the paint will lie in the stains, and will not stick on the hair.
After lightening, choose shades of natural colors, avoiding radical - black, red, copper-red. On dry hair, these tones look bad, are often unevenly located, and can give undesirable nuances.
If you want to return the hair to the natural color, then after lightening the paint should be chosen for 1 tone lighter than you expect to get as a result. The fact is that on bleached hair, the normal tone will be a little darker.
In order to successfully cope with the task of correcting the unfortunate staining, it is best to trust a competent colorist. Do not act on your own, because you can definitely spoil your hair, but not get the desired result.
