The hair colours we choose depend on our tastes as well as the type and condition of our hair. Discuss your requirements with a professional and let them take the reins.
I want to hide my grey hairs. “If grey hairs represent less than 30% of your hair, you can use temporary colours. These offer a lighter coverage and are less harmful for your hair. You’ll also be able to keep your natural colour.” If your grey hair is more of an issue, use a standard all-over colour.
I want to go from brown to blond. First of all this involves bleach. “For a natural result, the best thing to do is play around with different shades of blond for a well-blended, varied colour.”
I want a dip dye. “The dip dye is like the colour treatment on a shoestring! It gives the effect of you having dyed your hair lighter and let it grow out for 6 months.” Only the mid-lengths and ends are treated. Let the professionals apply it for a natural result.
I don’t really know what colour I want. Avoid permanent colour treatments at first. If you’ve never had your hair coloured or you’re unsure of which shade to go for, stick to temporary treatments. “At Jean Louis David, this is called Gloss. This allows you to test several colours. These colouring treatments are less powerful which means you can have a few test runs before going the whole hog.”
