Before I started coloring my hair, I had a lot of doubts and misgivings about using Hair Color. Even though I needed it to cover my white strands, I was worried that hair color might be difficult to apply at home and would damage my hair terribly. In this post, I have addressed some common myths regarding hair color ~
Myth #1 : Hair Color gives a dry, damaged look to the hair
It depends on the type of color you are using. Permanent dyes and bleach do cause visible dryness and damage but semi-permanent hair colors are much gentler on the hair and cause minimal damage. I have been using semi-permanent hair colors for a while now and my hair doesn’t look dry or damaged. But few years back when I had experimented with highlights (which was done by bleaching few section of hair), my hair did look excessively dry and straw-like. To preserve the shine and health of your hair, I would recommend going with a ammonia-free, semi-permanent hair color like the L’Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss.
Myth #2 : Hair Color causes premature graying of hair
This is completely false. Graying of hair is governed by genetic factors and to some extent, stress. Gray hair results due to deterioration of the pigment producing portions of the hair follicles. As we get older, the production of the type of melanin that gives a specific hair color decreases and hence hair gets lighter and more translucent with age. So all this action occurs at the hair follicles which are not affected in any way when we color our hair!
