If you're going to do your own hair in the pandemic.
By now it seems we might need to be settled down for a while and if you are lucky, you have prepared for this by either embracing those sparkling greys or being blessed to not have them. (I honestly think greys are quite beautiful so don’t feel bad that you have to let your sparkles show) There are a few products I can recommend to get you through this weirdness and hopefully not feeling as if you want to pull a Brittney and shave your hair off entirely. More specifically our Eufora Conceal. This product can be applied to the regrowth area to cover those pesky greys, or even add a shadow root by going with a darker shade. You can purchase online with the code below to help support Arcane Hair Parlour, we receive 25% of the sale and we greatly appreciate the support!
I want to start off by highly encouraging you to avoid grabbing that box color or your scissors and resorting to cutting yourself, or even worse letting your significant other take a whack at it. (I am quite literally cringing at the idea of them hacking off a chunk of your gorgeous hair) in all honesty the best thing you can do is wait for your stylist. Believe me, I don’t like this any more than you do. I absolutely miss doing your hair.
All that being said, if you have resorted to home color or cuts, I am not going to make you feel bad about it. This is the one and only time you will get a pass from me. Hopefully it looks amazing, but if it doesn't I am here for you and am happy to work my magic. If you have not done it but are thinking about it, I totally understand that you need to feel beautiful and like yourself right now (PS you are stunning even with that regrowth) That is why I am going to give you a few tips to hopefully avoid costly color corrections when we are back to normal. That brings me to my first tip.
Be prepared that you might mess up your hair and make your hair way worse. Who knows, maybe your new bangs will look amazing and that color won’t look too bad, but it also might look terrible and take a long time or cost a lot of money to fix. Hopefully these few tips help you avoid that.
1.Avoid the box and opt for a Demi permanent that is the same shade as your base color and if it is not, its okay to be a bit darker.
-Demi will not fully cover grey, however it will not go lighter than your base color and give you hot roots. It has no lift which means it is less damaging and easier to fix if the color isn’t right. If you do feel you need to cover your grey 100% permanent will do that but make sure the color is not too light.
2. Don't change your color. Specifically going lighter or more vibrant
- If you have been coloring your hair already and you attempt to apply a lighter color over it, you will get hot roots and banding. Color does not lift color.
