Want Coloured Hair? Be Sure To Do The Following First – ZUMI

coloured hair

Coloured natural hair is very much in vogue now, and girls are not stopping at wearing the ‘predictable’ colours alone like before. Oh, no! Girls are bringing the drama with bold coloured hair, and we stan a queen with dramatic hair colour.

Changing the colour of one’s hair is a daring move, no matter what colour you decide to go for. The same way you prepare yourself mentally to go through with the process, you also have to prepare your hair for the task ahead.

It is not enough for you to just pick up a hair dye and go have the process done. Take a look at the following things you are advised to do first before getting your hair coloured.

  1. Consider the health of your hair

If your hair is limp, dry, shedding, or flaking, girlfriend, put down that box of hair dye! The process of dying the hair is a very excruciating process for the hair, and it requires intense treatment before and after for the hair to recover. If your hair is not healthy at the time, then you really aren’t ready, boo.

For about two months before a dye job is one, deep condition your hair intensively, as deep conditioning helps restore the hair’s moisture and nutrients, and your hair will be needing all the moisture and nutrients it can get.

Repair your hair strands by doing a protein treatment at least once a month, while using a clarifying shampoo to prevent any product buildup.

Ensure that you trim your split ends as well. The whole point of this is to make sure that your hair’s health is at 100%.

2. Picking the right colour

Naturally, you’ll want to consider your skin tone while choosing a colour, but there is more to picking the right colour. It is not advisable to go more than three shades darker or lighter than your natural hair. Anything more and your hair could very well be on its way to the ER. This is because anything more is bleaching, that is, stripping the hair of the pigment responsible for its colour. This process places a lot of stress on the strands, so it advisable that you avoid it. So, take baby steps in your colouring process.

A rule of thumb to consider is that going shades darker deposits colour on your hair, which is less damaging, while going shades lighter requires stripping your hair of colour, and is ultimately more damaging. Think about that.

3. Selecting the perfect product

Not just any hair dye will do. You can’t just select any product to use on your hair! You have to read product labels and confirm that there is no ammonia or any other harsh chemical. You might be hard pressed to find one, but you can. We recommend Creme of Nature and Sheamoisture as they have ingredients that are milder on the strands.

4. Book an appointment with a professional

Whatever you do, don’t do your dye job by yourself, and don’t let a half baked stylist come close to your hair with a bottle of dye. Find a professional that has experience with dyeing natural hair, and book an appointment with them.

5. Buy Hair Products!

If you thought maintaining your natural hair is expensive, maintaining coloured natural hair is even more so. You will need to get hair products that are specific for taking care of coloured hair. Throw in a good leave-in-moisturizer, deep conditioning moisture masque, and a mix of essential oils, and you’re good to go.

Astha starts with a bronzer. She uses Chocolate by Too faced. She uses the bronzer to add dimension to her cheeks and contour her nose & jaw line. Astha uses a blush brush by Real Techniques for contouring the jaw line.

If you want to suppress your chin you can apply bronzer over it. Don’t forget to blend properly.

Next Astha adds some pink color with an Inglot Eyeshadow called double sparkle. Make-up products can be used in innovate ways guys! Remember do not apply too much pink just a little bit.

For the eyes astha is using Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. You do not need an eye primer for an everyday look so Astha is not applying it.

Astha starts with a warm shade called Buck for tracing her crease. Be as light and diffused as possible. So blend properly.

If you are really keen you can put on an eyeliner as well. Astha uses Sigma E 10 eyeliner brush. Use an eyeliner to give definition to the eyes. Use a very thin line as close to the lash line as possible.

Next using an angled brush (Astha is using one by MUD). Pick the black eyeshadow from the palette called Black Out and dab it over the eyeliner. If you do have a fall out the use light motion of your blush brush to flick it away.

To give your face a light and dewy finish use MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Soft and Gentle. Use highlighter brush to apply the skin finish. Apply the highlighter to the highest points of your cheeks, nose, forehead and cupid’s bow.

Line your lips suing Pinky #835 by NYX. Use detailer brush (Astha uses one by Real Techniques) and blend the lip liner inwards. Using lip liner prevents lipstick from bleeding. You can also shape your lips using a lip liner. Astha uses Mac Mehr lipstick which is pretty awesome.

Brush your eyebrows. Use a MAC Brow Set and colour your eye brows.
