You’ve got a big date with your favourite tiger to get your hair coloured this week, you’ve got your your Instagram posts and pins saved in your phone but what else should you do to prepare? How do you ensure your prep work gives you the best colour result.
Firstly, and most importantly if you are going any shade of blonde, we want to see one to two-day old hair!
We don’t want hair that is freshly washed as it is often too slippery to work with and will cause issues for you, but we don’t want hair with an extreme build up of oils or stying products either.
One to two-day old hair is perfect and allows the natural oils that are found on your scalp to do their thing. These oils will protect you from the tingling and burning sensation you may feel when dye or bleach touches your scalp. Something every blonde knows about.
It’s also important not to wash your hair too vigorously before you come in as this can break the skin on your scalp resulting in a stinging sensation when we put the colour or bleach on.
Ideally avoid dry shampoo and other root disguisers too as they can create a barrier between your hair and the colour, making it hard for the colour to penetrate and for you to get the desired colour outcome. They also eat up that oil we need to protect your scalp.
Dry hair is also best, even though colour can be applied to damp hair, it will be much more comfortable for you to start with a dry head of hair.
At Tigerlamb, we love blonde hair and we can work with you to work towards any shade or style you desire from a crisp, clean platinum to a buttery blonde, a balayage or just some beautiful baby lights.
We love it all and we are ready to bring the babes of Brisbane the blonde of their dreams.
