Thinking that Chennai’s ruthless climate has made my hair look brittle and lifeless, I decided to come to Bangalore to study. I have tried all sorts of hair coloring to look attractive, but alas, the colours look weird on my already ruined hair. It looks like somebody chewed Pan and spat on my hair! *sigh* But, I, being your true friend, am going to share some tips hat you could try at home and rejuvenate each strand of your hair from root to tip. Here I am presenting some myths and myth-busters about your hair.


#1: You should always consider your skin tone and natural hair colour while colouring your hair.


You should use your natural colour as the baseline and consider going two shades lighter or darker to achieve the most flattering finish for your hair. If you have a fair skin, it would be lovely if you chose to go for neutral tones, such as: light to medium browns, shades of reds and beige blondes. For those who have medium to olive skin tone should go for darker shades of brown, deep rich hues like cocoa brown and golden blonde. It is believed that the right colour would make you look younger, and you would require less makeup.


#2: Only the hair which is coloured is prone to easy breakage and spits.


If you are not conditioning your hair properly, you will face hair dryness and dullness. However, it is not necessary that colouring only would cause dryness. Other culprits for this problem are the UV rays and the heated styling products, such as the blow dryers, curling machines to name a few. Dyed or not, you should protect your hair from heat and sunrays. It takes quite a time to undo heat damage to the hair.


#3: Mayonnaise is a better solution for deep conditioning dry and coloured hair.


It is true that mayonnaise is rich in fatty oils that are known to condition hair deep within, but it also weighs down your hair, making it look sticky and unattractive. Hair products for deep conditioning are better option than mayonnaise.


#4: The summers make your hair colour fade quicker.


Not just the summer sun, hair is damaged due to the UV rays. No matter which season, it could fade your hair colour and make it look dull and dry. It is suggested to use hair products that guard your hair from UV rays and moisturize each strand of your hair everyday. Protect your hair by covering them while you are outdoors.


These were few tips to save your coloured hair from damage and dullness. Want to know more about it from my side? Ummm….well, let me discover some new innovative tips and I would get back to you soon. Take care!
