Dark/ Med/ Light Brown Hair
People with brunettes usually think that the darker hair is difficult to change. Moreover, the appealing shades for people with brown hair are either too bright or super vibrant. Thus, it is also true that most of us (like myself) are not confident to color our hair in an entirely different or vibrant color. The reason may vary, like;
If a vibrant or lighter shade is not the right choice?
If it damages the hair? Or,
What if the new growth look worsen?
Well, hair coloring at home is not as difficult as it used to be, and if You are bored with deep or dark brown hair color, and willing to go for some lighter or brighter shade for your hair? I have doable and result-driven suggestions about how to change your hair color without any damage to your hair and what shades can be the best choice for you
Color for Dark Brown Hair
If your natural hair is level “3” Dark brown, and the desired color is level “5” or Light brown: chose level “7” or Medium Blonde to color your hair. It will give you a lighter brown shade without using strong or higher peroxide (vol-30). You can also dye your hair with any shade of level “6” with Gold or Copper tone, like Dark Blonde copper, Dark Blonde Gold, or Dark Ash Blonde. In that case, you will achieve a brighter brown hair color that gives your hair a golden or copper shine
Color for Medium Brown Hair
If your natural hair is medium brown; and you like vibrant colors, choose level “5” or “6” with Red, Violet, Mahogany tones
Color for Light Brown Hair
If your natural hair color is level “5” or light brown: chose level “6” or “7” Copper, Red, Caramel, Cinnamon, Cherry, or Medium Blonde tones.
Color for Vivid Hair
For those who love Vivid colors: people with natural level “5” light brown can use Semi-Permanent Vivid colors to dye their hair in chili Red, Teal, Blue, and ashy tones. All you need is to shampoo your hair with Clarifying Shampoo before hair dye, and do not use conditioner after. Apply Semi-Permanent hair color, always follow the manufacturer’s direction, rinse thoroughly, and take a final rinse with slightly cold water. It will seal the color in your hair, condition your hair, and do not use warm water to rinse the conditioner.
It is essential to know your natural color level. You can’t achieve 100% results of the chosen hair dye if; You assess your natural color wrong if you have dyed your hair previously in a darker tone. Natural brown hair is usually thick and coarse in texture. Washing hair with Clarifying shampoo will open hair cuticles and allow the hair to saturate appropriately. Semi-permanent hair dyes wash-out in about eight washes, so it is crucial to use color-safe shampoo & conditioner. In my next post, I am going to discuss about other type of hair and natural colors. Till then, take care and stay safe.
