Winter is almost over, and we are looking forward to spring. Autumn colors are starting to fade and spring tones will become the new curly hair style. This change will boost your spirits and get you ready for the warm weather. With the proper hair care and product selection, blondes do not have to be brassy, reds do not have to fade, and browns are able to hold their true shine. Highlighting your curly hair avoids color commitment so you will not have to have the pressure of monthly upkeep. Choosing tones that provide brightness, richness, and depth will create more versatility and show definition in individual ringlets. Selecting the right hair color is the quickest and easiest way to make a person look and feel younger.
The right color application will depend if the stylist knows and understands the dynamics of curly hair. For instance, people with naturally curly hair usually have more hair at the root area than at the bottom. With curly hair, if you braid a section of hair starting at the root area, by the end of the hair shaft there is very little left. Adding highlights and lowlights to curly hair, especially to the root area, will give the illusion of more body and volume. Further, the density of curly hair is vastly different compared to straight hair. When you are looking at curly hair, you almost always have to look at the ends of the hair, not the root area, to see how many hairs there are and determine what color you want the ends to be.
As fun and refreshing as it can be to spice things up with some color, curly hair is vulnerable to color damage that can cause problems for curl and style management. It’s important to add strength and moisture to color treated hair, since chemical treatments often leave hair feeling drier and much more brittle. To re- strengthen brittle hair that has lost its elasticity, one should use CHS Treatment Shampoo. It has a large concentration of magnesium and panthanol that when deposited, repairs the roughest hair cuticle. With consistent usage you will have stronger, fuller hair that has a deeper “S” formation to the curl. Afterwards, you can then apply the deep curly hair conditioner, Pure Silk Protein, to your hair. It contains copious amounts of silk proteins that add significantly more moisture to colored hair, leaving it feeling softer and giving you lasting vibrant color because of the perfect pH balance of 3.5-4.
With spring around the corner and having the urge for a change, choosing the right colors, using the right application methods and products to maintain your new look is important.
