Have you thought about coloring your hair but there was something holding you back? Well, your reason for sticking with your natural hair color may actually be a myth! If you’ve heard that a box dyed blonde hair color can never rival the real thing, or that root touch up is bound to be the bane of your existence when it comes to gray hair coverage, think again. If you ask us, there are far too many myths out there—and something should be done about it. That’s why we’re breaking down five of the biggest myths surrounding coloring your hair. So, read on, once we’ve banished all your biggest fears, you can go ahead and start planning your next hair color.
Professional colorists hear it all the time—clients are afraid that refreshing their hair color will leave them with a hair color that looks fake and obvious. In reality, hair dyes have evolved a lot over the years and nowadays there are plenty of options for achieving a natural-looking hair color—even if it’s far from the shade you were born with.
We’ve all been told that dying your hair causes damage, and there’s some truth to that. If you bleach your hair, it does cause damage. However, not every hair dye formula will lead to damaged hair, or damage it to the same extent. It’s also important to know that what you may assume is damage from the dye is actually caused by not following a proper hair care regimen for color-treated hair. So, if you do decide to switch-up your hair color, remember to ditch your old shampoo, conditioner, and hair mask for color-safe options. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair & Defend Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Repair Remedy Balm.
Don’t buy into the idea that colored hair will be duller than your natural hair color. With the right hair dye, there’s no reason that your strands have to look dull after coloring. In fact, the L’Oréal Paris Féria offers multi-faceted shimmering hair color that promises to never appear dull or flat, in just about every shade you can imagine. And if you’re still worried, you can always consider adding highlights or lowlights for extra dimension. Either way, your hair is sure to be far from dull.
We won’t deny that coloring your hair can be a real process. To make a dramatic change you may need to dye your hair in multiple sessions and more complicated coloring techniques—like balayage—can require several hours at the salon. However, if you want to make a change that won’t eat up most of your day, that’s possible, too. At-home hair color kits typically take well under an hour from start to finish—just be sure to read the instructions.
No one wants to deal with new growth when it means having visible roots and thankfully, there are ways to get around that not-so-little predicament. A popular option is to stick with dye, like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color, which washes out in 4-10 shampoos. That way, the color has faded before your roots have a chance to grow in. If you prefer to stick with permanent hair dye, you can keep roots at bay with the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up until you can make it to the salon for a touch-up. Or, one last suggestion, if your roots start to show on a day when you’re feeling a little funky, try covering them up with a temporary hair color spray from the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray range.
