Mother’s Day is around the corner and most moms are waiting for their families to shower them with gifts, and while there is nothing wrong with that, moms need to start showing themselves some love too! We believe the best gift you can give yourself as a mother or woman is to take care of yourself from the inside out. That means making sure you nourish your body from within as well as use products that take care of your body, every day.
That also means, when you come to pamper yourself for Mother’s Day by either getting your hair or your nails done you have to pay attention to what products you’re using, especially for your hair. Hair care can make or break of your hair (quite literally) and since dying one’s hair is sometimes a big part of a woman’s life, knowing how to take proper care of your hair will give you lush locks that can be any color you want without any damaging effects.
So, here are the most important tips you need to know about dying your hair safely with damage-free results:
1. Choose a Product That Allows You to Dye Your Hair with Care
There are so many hair dyes in the market now, one sometimes doesn’t know on what basis does one choose. We’re telling you now that you should go for the product that dyes your hair with care, and that means choosing a product like the New Palette Intensive Color Creme by Schwarzkopf.
This New Palette (Intensive Color Creme)with its triple care system with Keratin, Panthenol, and Nutri-Oils Provides you with more care than ever*. The formula contains Keratin, Panthenol and Macadamia Nut Oil giving this dye its unique edge and giving your hair the care it deserves with better combability (who hates knots? We sure do) with a supple feel.
*In Comparison to its Previous Formulas.
The Keratin and Macadamia Nut Oil act as care agents whereas Panthenol is the active ingredient in the conditioning aspect of the dye. It is also the provitamin of D- Pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5).
Benefits of Macadamia Nut Oil:
- Adds shine.
- Strengthens Hair follicles preventing brittle hair.
- Nourishes hair as well as follicles.
- Help stop hair loss.
You should know that the Keratin used in this product isn’t the same one that’s used to flatten your curls and straighten your hair. So, even if you’re a curly head who wants to experiment with color or cover your white roots, this product is still perfect for you.
2.Pick the Right Color for Your Skin Tone
Some women dye their hair any color they feel like which is something to commemorate as it definitely takes guts. However, if you’re dying your hair for the sake of choosing a color that works great on you there are a few things you need to know.
Know and Respect Your Skin Tone
You may not know this but your skin and hair color have the same underlying pigment, that means they complement each other. So, unless you’re going for a totally unnatural color like purple you should stick to tones that work with your skin tone.
How to Find out Your Skin Tone?
Do the Vein test:
Check the color of your veins under natural lighting. If they appear to be blue or purple that means you’re cool toned. If they appear more greenish, then you have a warmer skin tone. If you can’t tell if your veins are blue or green (or if you have both colors) then you are neutral skin toned.
Eye color matters
Believe it or not, the color of your eyes plays a role in which hair colors work best on you. If your eyes are deep shades of brown/black, dark/grey-blue then cool toned hair colors are best for you. If you have light golden brown, baby blue, green or hazel eyes with gold in them then warm toned hair colors compliment you the best.
If you have cool skin tones:
Blonde hair shades work well with your cool skin like the New Palette ICC Arctic Silver Blonde (10-1), Light Blonde (8-0), Marsala Brown (6-80), Black (1-0), Dark Mahogany (3-68) will be your best bet.
If you have warm skin tones:
Darker shades like New Palette ICC Black (1-0), Medium Brown (4-0) or Sparkling Nougat (7-65) and Soft Brouge (7-17) will work great on you.
3. Perfect Your After-Dye Hair Routine
You can prevent a lot of unfortunate hair dye situations just by reading the instructions provided in the pack first. You’ve got to understand that they wrote these for a reason and just because you dyed your hair before doesn’t mean that this specific brand instruction is the same.
The first thing you can do is use the Care Mask Sachet that comes with the New Palette Intensive Care Creme directly after dying your hair and leave it on for 2 minutes. Then you should wait a full 72 hours before shampooing your hair again or use the recommended shampoo in the leaflet that comes with the dye. Also, you could use Sulfate free products on your hair while you at it.
You can leverage on the fact that the New Palette Intensive Care Creme has long-lasting color intensity by making sure you wash out your hair with cooler water because hot water will open your hair cuticles making the color wash out.
That’s it, if you just pay careful attention to what you use on your body, skin, and hair you will be rewarded with an evergreen body that’s thankful you’re taking proper care of it. It doesn’t matter really what hair color you have, how fit you are or what your skin tone is, you are beautiful the way you are because just like Schwarzkopf says ” Beauty comes from you.”
