How to choose your hair coloring ?
Did you know that over 60% of women dye their hair? And that 55% of them do it at home? Because coloring has become a must for many of us, whether it's to change our style or to hide our first gray hair, here's an overview of the different colorings on the market !
THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COLORING
This is the lightest coloring! Perfect for an evening or a day, it will fade in one or two shampoos. It is ideal for temporary highlights or to revive a color. It is a non-oxidizing hair color that will simply deposit pigments on the cuticle without damaging the hair.
Vegetable hair coloring covers the first white hairs and revives the color very well. It remains 10 to 12 shampoos and does not damage your hair! It is superimposed on the natural color and acts transparently on white hair. The downside of this natural solution is that it is not very easy to apply alone at home, it requires a rather long application time and offers a rather limited and random palette of shades for the uninformed! For those who like to do their own grubbing, vegetal coloring is a good option.
Semi-permanent or tone-on-tone coloring
Tone on tone deposits colorants on the scales and cuticle. This type of coloring will have the same natural look as a vegetable coloring by transparently covering white hair. Synthetic dyes will allow a beautiful palette of shades and a color setting that will be more intense and faster than a vegetal coloring. The hold of this type of coloring is 10 to 12 shampoos. This is the technique we have chosen for our line of clay coloring: without oxidizing agents, to respect the hair and scalp as much as possible.
It is this type of coloring that uses oxidation with peroxide, which tends to be aggressive to the hair and scalp. There are two types of permanent hair coloring:
- The one with a low to normal level of peroxide: their use will allow the color to last longer with a very high coverage. It lasts for 16 to 18 shampoos but produces a rather marked root effect.
- The one with ammonia or a high concentration of peroxide: it covers 100% of white hair and even helps to lighten the hair. It is the strongest coloring that exists, it is totally permanent with a very wide choice of shades but it is also the most aggressive coloring for the hair and scalp and produces a very visible root effect over time.
