It is easy for many women to access and find their hair color in a variety of forms: whether its creams, tubes, gels, and in shampoos.

After time most hair coloring does fade. The color will not be permanently changed if it is not the part of an oxidation chemical reaction.

Fine textured hair can be damaged easily from coloring of the hair. The fine hair has less cuticle layers so the penetration of chemicals occurs faster. Coarse textured hair has more cuticle layers. This type of hair is more resistant to coloring. Coloring on any type of hair can damage it if the wrong level of peroxide is used or you are over-processing your hair.

If you constantly change your color you must regularly use deep conditioning treatments. Over-processing is the main reason if your colored hair looks dull.

One of the most important elements of hair coloring is determining your hairs’ underlying pigment. When you combine underlying color and artificial color in the right way you get the desired result.
