Need to Tame Frizzy Hair?

If you’ve got natural curls and waves, then chances are you often get frizz. Curly, coarse, wavy, and thick hair always scream for an extra dose of TLC. They do this (and you can tell they’re in dire need of attention) by becoming frizzy. In other cases, frizz is genetically determined. In places where heat is a force to deal with, it’s a by-product of humidity, pollution, and sun exposure.

In an attempt to tame the frizz some people tend to go to extremes such as altering the texture of the hair through rebonding or perming. This, ladies, isn’t going to be effective. Neither will ironing it flat and stick straight. The key is to get to the root of the problem.

Let’s take a look at how frizz happens:

You get frizzy hair because of the lack of moisture in your strands. Your hair the cuticles swell up in an attempt to  trap moisture in the environment, and this causes it to become unmanageable and frizzy. This happens when hair is dry, parched, and damaged mostly because of too much chemical exposure, frequent exposure to heat, and (sometimes) your heritage.

So what do you do about it?

First, you need to have an arsenal of moisturizing products. This means stocking up on intense moisturizing conditioners, masks, and hot oils. You’ll also need serum for that quick after-bath treatment.

Second, you’ll need a regimen. Do not shampoo everyday as it washes away your hair’s natural oils along with the dirt and grime that you want to do away with. Instead, wash it a couple of days apart. Use a sulfate-free shampoo. Use a moisture rich conditioner every time you shampoo your hair to replenish the moisture that’s lost in the process of washing. Deep conditioning and intense moisturizing ones are great investments. As much as possible, go for products that target dry, frizzy hair.

Your hair will also benefit from using hot oil at least twice a month. All it takes is 10 minutes, so I’m sure you’ll be able to find time for that. If you’re willing to go the extra mile, deep moisturizing masks done every week will help bring back life and luster to your crowning glory.

After rinsing your hair from conditioners, masks, and hot oils, you might have developed the habit of rubbing or wrapping it with a towel to get it dry. This you must avoid. Wet hair is at its most vulnerable state. Instead, use a paper towel, an old shirt, or a super absorbent microfiber towel to pat the hair dry and gently squeeze out the extra moisture.

Lastly, when styling your hair, try to avoid heat as much as possible. If you absolutely must use a flat iron invest in a ceramic one to minimize the damage. It uses infrared ionic heat to prevent damage. The same principle applies when you’re on the hunt for a blow-dryer. Ionic dryers use the same kind of heat and compresses the cuticles thereby locking off moisture that will make your hair go haywire. Before subjecting your locks to heat, always remember to apply a hairstyling protectant.

Love your hair the way it is. Your hair may be a handful when they’re dry and damaged, but once you infuse life to them, they’re such a pretty sight for all ladies.

Top 5 Tips in Managing Curly Hair | Asian Hair And Beauty

Charming big hair curls and playful small hair curls are prevalent in the fashion industry, with the entire asian hair trend moving towards a “Fun with Curliness” hair culture. Curls in hair give a luxurious beautiful look but at the same time are difficult to maintain. Unruly curls leaves many  women stressed and frustrated causing them to give up on going for permed or curly hair. However, it isn’t as hard as one might imagine in keeping  permed or curly hair in line.

1. Washing oily hair more often

If your hair tends to be oily, your curls will lay limp on your scalp, making the originally airy texture look shapeless. To add volume and texture to your curls, the easiest way is to increase the number of times you wash your hair. In this way, oil secretion can be reduced allowing your asian hair to remain bouncy.

2. Handy DIY curls maintenance method

This is a curling method which will not damage your hair and is more suitable for dry hair. When your hair is 70% – 80% dry, divide your hair to about 1cm to 3cm width and then evenly roll your curls. Use hairpins to fix your hair in place and spray on styling products. Let down your hair after it has dried completely.

3. Hair care solution which contains almond oil

Hair care solution which has high nutrients content is most suitable for dry asian hair with spilt ends after a perm. Hair specialists recommends the use of hair care solution which contains almond oil as it will increase the strength of hair stands and allow it to be healthier. This is because essence of almond oil is more easily absorbed into damaged hair strands and repairs your hair from within, allowing your hair to undergo speedy recovery!

4. Hair dryer which does not damage curly hair

When using a hair dryer, it is vital to blow in the direction from the hair root to the ends of your hair. If not, your hair cuticles will be blown in the wrong direction, causing your hair strand to be damaged. In addition, your hair dryer should also follow the movement of your comb in order to produce glossy beautiful asian hair which will not go out of shape easily.

5. Effective styling products

In styling curly hair, most people would opt for hair gel. Hair gel causes hair to have a flat look and hence is more suitable for people with thick hair. When applying gel, rub it gently into your hair in an upward pattern as rubbing it downwards would cause your curls to be pulled straight, damaging your locks. It is advisable to apply gel when your hair is 70% to 80% dry. If your hair is thinner, mousse, wax and foam wax are recommended as these styling products have a lighter texture and will not alter the curliness of your hair. When choosing gel products, do opt for products which can be applied by hand. This application method is more even and can increase bounciness of your asian hair and its styling power.

3 Treatments for Healthy Hair | Asian Hair And Beauty

Here are 3 special concoctions for healthy asian hair.

Robert Hallowell brings us his exclusive Honey Whiskey recipe: 2 spoons of Vodka + 2 spoons honey + half a ripe avocado + one egg yolk

Using a spoon, mix all the ingredients well in a cup until it turns creamy. Wash your hair clean and then apply this concoction and leave it on for 30 minutes.  Wash it off with water followed by small amounts of shampoo and conditioner.

How it works: Vodka rids hair keratin build up, oil and chemical residuals. Honey and avocado nourishes your hair while egg yolk gives a smooth finish to your asian hair from the roots to the ends.

Orlando Pita’s exquisite sea salt breeze formula: a handful of sea salt + water + your favourite hair styling product + spray bottle

Mix the salt and water inside the spray bottle and then add in your choice of asian hair styling product. Spray onto dried hair and blow it dry with a hair dryer whilst using your hand to flip through your hair to give it a loose tousled beach look.

How it works: Salt water spray gives your hair a unique texture but causes your hair to be dry. Hence, it is important to add in hair care products and to perform daily hair treatments.

Danilo recommends foamy mixture for frizzy curly hair: a cup of natural non-flavoured yoghurt + 3 spoons of olive oil or wheat germ oil + a sprig of rosemary + a sprig of mint or half a spoon of mint oil

Blend all the ingredients using a blender until it becomes foamy. Apply it evenly on towel dried hair after wash. Wrap a warm wet towel over your hair and wait for 20 minutes. If your hair is frizzy, rinse it all off with water. If your asian hair is in normal condition, use warm water to rinse off instead.

How it works: If “Refrigerator Treatment” isn’t your style, you might want to try Pantene’s Time Renewal tonic to help your dull hair with split ends. This tonic nourishes your hair from the roots to ends to give a luscious look.  You can also use Rene Furterer’s Shine Moisturising Leave-in Spray as an initial styling step. It will give your hair shine and strength to counter damage done after you had your asian hair dyed.?

How to Protect Your Hair in the Cold Winter | Asian Hair And Beauty

The chilling wind during winter makes it exceptionally easy for your asian hair to be tangled. With problems like dryness and lack of moisture, there is a worsening of hair condition. So how does one go about maintaining smooth and shinny hair in this extreme weather? Here are some tips in protecting your hair.

Drastic fall of temperature in Winter is accompanied by decrease in humidity. The declining moisture in the air results in drying up of hair strands, causing your hair to become dry and brittle. This is especially so for thin hair strands which will get tangled easily and difficult to comb. Breakage of hair will also occur during combing and styling of hair.

Fine sand and dust can easily “attack” your hair in the midst of the cold winter winds. When combing, styling and tidying of asian hair, friction caused by bristles in the comb can cause your hair cuticles to be damaged, giving rise to frizzy hair.

After identifying the cause of frizzy hair, how does one prevent or solve hair problems? Below are some tips which may help you.

1. The most basic and most important tip is cleanliness. One should cultivate the habit of washing hair as good quality hair cleaning products not only get rids of dirt and oil but also maintains ample nutrients and moisture in hair. This will in turn allow for your hair to be healthy and strong.

2. Hair tonic and hair moisturizer is essential after washing of asian hair. The ingredients in hair moisturizer will allow for the surface molecules of hair to be arranged such that electrical charges between hair fibers are reduced. With the decrease in charges, an anti-static protective film is formed, allowing your hair to be moisturized, silky smooth and soft.

3. It is advisable to perform deep layer hair treatment for your hair at least once a week, using intensive hair treatment products. You can perform such professional treatment in the comfort of your own home. After washing your hair, your hair cuticles are opened and can easily absorb nutrients. Use a hair dryer at low temperature 20 minutes after wash. Be sure to keep your hair dryer at a distance from your hair.

4. Using combs made from natural materials like wood, cow’s horn or mane, can help to lessen the damage caused by static electricity.

5. More than 90% of hair is made up from protein, iodine and vitamin B1. These nutrients allow for your asian hair to maintain its natural colour and shine. Therefore, food, like fruits, bean sprout and fish liver oil, which contains necessary nutrients, are some of the food which are otherwise known as “food for hair”.

6. Regular consumption of green vegetables, beans and seaweed can promote healthy hair growth. Green vegetables aid melanin production, hence giving your hair a rich black colour. Seaweed-like food has high calcium, potassium, and iodine content which can help to delay graying of hair. In addition, too much salt or sugar intake can cause androgenic hair loss and make your limp and brown. Hence, if you want strong healthy asian hair, it is important to decrease your consumption of sweet food and pickles.

Lin Chi Ling and Barbie Hsu’s Hair Secrets | Asian Hair And Beauty

The 2 beautiful Taiwanese celebrities Barbie Hsu and Lin Chi Ling are not only famous for their good complexions, but also for their silky shiny hair. Here, they are going to disclose their closely guarded secrets to having gorgeous asian hair like theirs.

Lin Chi Ling believes that beauty radiates from the head (and hair..)

Lin Chi Ling Asian Hair Style

Lin Chi Ling believes it is crucial to pamper your hair as much as your skin and it needs equal protection against the sun too. She had observed that most people tend to only remember their beauty regimes for skincare when they are outdoors during summer. Yet, they have neglected to ensure equal protection for their hair against the harmful sun rays, UV light and the adverse effects of sea water. Hence, she would always don a stylish hat every time she’s outdoors, and also apply moisturizer to her hair. In short, you have to adore your hair as much as your skin.

Be persistent in having a regular hair care regime

Lin Chi Ling Asian Hair Style

Lin Chi Ling has to dye her long hair or change her hairstyle frequently due to work, both of which are extremely harmful to the hair follicles.

She added: “I no longer dye my hair to a shade that is too light in contrast to my original hair colour. Because by doing so, the black pigment in my hair is bleached, and after the hairstyling my hair becomes lifeless; I would need to do proper hair care everyday for a week to restore some of the moisture lost from my hair. Therefore, I would advise ladies with long asian hair to dye to a shade that is within 6 to 7 degrees of your original hair pigment for a more natural and radiant hair colour.”

She also mentioned that she would adhere to a rigorous hair care regime regardless of how late or how weary she is.

Give your hair a deep cleansing

Lin Chi Ling Asian Hair Style

Lin Chi Ling shared: “A lot of people think that washing their hair every day will do damage to their hair, but I beg to differ. If I do not wash my hair for one day, I would feel extremely ill at ease. The first thing that I would do when I wake up is to drink a cup of plain water before washing my hair. I also use deep cleansing hair products to ‘spring clean’ my hair on a weekly basis too. Well, some question the necessity of deep cleaning the hair if one washes his/her hair religiously every day. Actually, many do not know that Fluorescer is present in the daily hair wash that we use. Although Fluorescer helps to keep our hair smooth and manageable, it will also form a residual layer on the surface of our hair. Over time, this causes damage to our hair follicles, hence the need for an all natural deep hair cleansing regime weekly to eradicate these toxic particles. Our asian hair can only absorb nutrients better when the follicles are able to breathe freely.”

Barbie Hsu’s secrets to her luscious hair: Keep your hair from things that they should avoid

Barbie revealed that she has high expectations for her hair and would keep her hair away from things that it should avoid. For instance, flicking her hair to the front before sitting down on a seat to ensure that it will not be mercilessly sandwiched between the seat and the back of her shoulders!

No ponytail—it is the root to severe hair loss on the hairline and front part of hair

Barbie do not really wear a ponytail even at home, as she believes it can cause hair loss on the front portion of hair. Wearing a hair band is another big no-no.

Distribute the weight of hair in a balance manner by letting it hang down on both sides equally

Whenever Barbie is at home, she will definitely let her hair down on both sides of her chest, making sure to separate them equally. By doing so, the weight of her asian hair is balanced and this will minimize the risk of hair loss from unequal weight distribution.

Tips For Maintaining Beautiful Asian Hair

There are a few things you can do on a regular basis that will improve the overall health and appearance of your asian hair, and also avoid hair damage. In general, here’s a few tips on hair maintenance:

1. Brush your hair

Brushing your hair helps to stimulate blood supply to the scalp and remove dead skin cells from the scalp from building up to prevent infection. It also helps to distribute natural hair sebum oil over the hair shaft for moisturizing and protection. When brushing your hair, use a natural bristle brush or other gentle brushes. Do not rush through the brushing and pull at tangled hair. It is better to go slow than go fast and risk breaking or pulling out your hair. Get into the habit of brushing your hair and detangle it before washing your hair.

2. Massage your scalp

Before brushing your asian hair, make it a point to do a quick scalp massage first. Massaging your hair scalp helps in blood circulation to your scalp and will also help your hair to grow faster and more healthily. Place your finger tips on your scalp and massage in small circular motions. Using your finger tips will keep your hair from breakage, while scratching your scalp with your fingernails might cause infection.

3. Give Your Hair A Break

Get into the habit of giving your hair a break once a week. It is not necessary to wash your hair every day (unless you tend to work up a sweat every day in your job, activities etc). If you are over the age of 20, and do not have any rashes or infections (like dandruff), do give your hair a break for a whole day by not washing it. Pick a day where you normally do not go out, or just do housework and run errands. Do not wash with shampoo and do not blow dry your hair. If you are not used to it, simply wet your hair and apply a little conditioner on hair ends and rinse well thereafter. Washing your hair too much will remove your natural hair sebum, which is good natural hair oil moisturizer for your hair. Give your hair a break from shampooing once a week, and whenever possible, from blow-drying and heat styling.

4. Conditioning Treatment

Unless you have dry hair, get into the habit of applying a deep conditioning treatment to your asian hair only once a week. Deep conditioners are not the same as daily conditioners and they are much more intense than daily hair conditioners. Coconut oil is especially good for hair conditioning. Brush your hair, wash and then towel it dry. Apply your deep conditioner and then wrap your head in a heated towel to open the hair cuticles and allow the conditioner to soak in. Leave for about 10-30 minutes then rinse thoroughly in warm water to remove the conditioner residue, follow by rinsing with cold water to close the hair cuticles. Rinsing your hair in cold water can be a little uncomfortable, but it help closes the hair cuticles close to the hair shaft, which help increase shine and also help to keep hair strong. Adding some lemon juice to the cold water can further improve your hair’s shine and strength (a half of a teaspoon of lemon juice in two quarts of cool water is sufficient).

5. Daily Conditioner

Apply a daily conditioner to your hair ends every time you shampoo. This will reduce split ends, hair discoloration and reduces damage caused by heat styling and reduce the need for frequent hair trims. Do not apply hair conditioner to your hair roots, as this is the part rich with natural hair sebum and applying hair conditioner on top of hair sebum will cause your hair to be greasy and drop easily.

6. Haircuts

Get into the habit of getting your hair trimmed regularly. This reduces split ends and keeps excess weight off your hair (which can cause breakage). Go for a hair cut about once every 8 weeks if you ahve shoulder length or longer hair and once every 6 weeks if you have shorter hair styles.

7. Up-Dos

If you have long hair and want to keep it that way, try to pin up your asian hair up when possible. One of the reasons that women grew such long beautiful hair back in the “olden days” is because they wore it up all the time. The weight of your hair can cause damage to your hair. When hair is long, it weighs down, stops growing and falls out, or simply breaks off. Putting your hair up frequently will keep that weight or stress off the root of the hair. You can pin it up gently with bobby pins or a hair clip when running errands, doing housework, cooking dinner, doing yard work, or working on your computer, watching TV, etc. Now, this depends on your hair style and hair length. If you have a short hairstyle, this step is unnecessary. However, if you have shoulder length or longer hair, and want it to look thick, shiny and healthy, make it a point to bun it up and keep the weight off your hair roots.

8. How to Wash Your Hair

There is a right and wrong way to wash your hair. Treat it like the finest silk! If you’ve ever made the mistake of running a pair of expensive silk clothing in your washing machine, you’ll know what I mean. Here a few tips to avoid causing any excess damage to your hair while washing it:

1. Let your hair hang naturally when you wash it; either standing in the shower or with your head leaning over the bath, or in a sink. Do not squeeze shampoo directly on your head to wash and don’t keep your hair straight when washing your hair as this will cause hair to tangle easily and cause breakage.

2. Wet your hair with warm water (not hot water) to prepare it for a shampoo. Lower the pressure on the showerhead so that it is gentle enough to avoid excess water pressure on your hair.

3. Pour shampoo into the palm of your hand and lather it, do not squeeze shampoo directly onto your hair or scalp.

4. Work the shampoo into a lather in your hand, and apply to your scalp. Work the shampoo into your scalp all over your head by massaging with your fingertips (not your fingernails). Do NOT drag  your fingers through your hair. Remember, hair is the most vulnerable to damage and breakage when it is wet. If your hair is particularly dirty or oily, you can work the shampoo through to the ends. If your hair is very dry or damaged, you may just want to wash your scalp, and let the residue shampoo rinse out any dirt on hair ends as you rinse your scalp.

5. Rinse hair thoroughly with lukewarm water. Ensure that you allow it to hang reversely. You may comb through it gently with your fingertips if it’s long and needs extra help rising out the shampoo.

6. If you chose to use a conditioner, only apply conditioner to the ends of your hair, and then onto the rest of your hair with any remaining hair conditioner, follow by a rinse.

7. Towel dry gently. Once hair is towel-dried you can apply a leave-in conditioner while hair is still wet.

8. ALWAYS comb wet hair with a wide-tooth comb and never brush wet hair.

9. NEVER sleep with wet hair, as it is vulnerable when wet and can break easily as you turn and toss about on your pillow. Even if it doesn’t break, your hair cuticles will become rough and will make hair look dull. Therefore, always dry your hair naturally or with a hair dryer whenever possible.

Hair Beauty Secrets From The Professionals | Asian Hair

For most people, grooming their asian hair seems like a daily chore. As such, we tend to stick to more convenient regimes and things that don’t require much of our time. The problem with this is that it sometimes it leave us with many bad hair days or dull and limp hair. Do you want a much healthier, shinier and sexier hair? Then it pays to heed these tips from the professionals and we will find that managing our hair can be so much more easier.

2. We should always go for products that work for us. According to professionals, the proper way of cleaning your hair is achieved by first lathering the shampoo or conditioner in your hands before to applying on hair. Massage onto the hair roots and then downwards the hair.

3. While washing hair on a daily basis will make you feel clean, but in reality, washing your hair daily can be damaging and drying to your hair. We should wash our hair every alternate day or three times per week instead. If you must wash every day, just rinse with water and apply some conditioner at the ends on your ‘non-shampoo’ days.

4.  Asian hair that is permed and dyed needs to have intense conditioning at least once a week. If your hair is extremely damaged, professionals will recommend an intense hair mask (for use from mid-hair down) instead of using your daily conditioner.

5. Many hair dryers are  great at speeding up the hair drying process, but professionals note that they are supposed to be held high above the hair instead of near it or touching it, so as to avoid overheating and damage. Experts recommend removing the hair dyer nozzle and point your dryer in a downward motion when drying your hair. It is also advisable to apply a heat-protectant leave in hair treatment or conditioner on damp hair before you use the hair dryer, this will help to protect your asian hair against the heat.

6. Use your fingers to loosen and comb through your hair as you are drying your hair, until it is about 80 percent dry. After that, use a hair brush to comb through. This will ensure minimal hair breakage and hair loss, as wet hair is more vunerable and easier to break.

7. Many anti-frizz and silicone based hair products will help to keep hair smooth and tamed. Professionals suggest applying them only after drying your hair in order to achieve the best results. Otherwise, it will have a “shrinking” effect and stripping the moisture out of your asian hair.

8. According to professionals, the best hair brushes are those made of natural or boar bristles, as they will help to distribute your scalp’s natural oils evenly on your hair and keep them well oiled.

9. We should always pay attention to our diets as what we eat will affect our hair. According to the professionals, he best vitamin for hair is found in omega-3 fatty acids. So it is good to eat fishes, especially salmon and tuna. We also need to consume nuts and cheese, as they usually contain protein great for the hair.

10. If you had dyed your hair, regular hair color touch-ups can help to patch up the colors on new hair that is grown out and making it look more even. Touching up means only your roots and new grown hair will be worked on and the hair dye will not be left on hair for long, so this also mean less damage.

11. If you just colored your hair, experts suggest refraining from washing your hair for the next 72 hours, so as to protect the hair color from fading and washing out. This will also allow more time for the new hair dye color to get absorped into our asian hair. When you wash your hair, be sure to use only color-safe hair shampoo and conditioner that can help to protect the hair color.

12. One of the quick fixes for frizzy or stray ends is to simply apply a good leave-in hair treatment on our asian hair and then tame them with a hair dryer, if need be.

Hair Oil Can Work Miracles For Your Hair | Asian Hair

Hair oil is one of the essential things that we can include in our daily beauty regime for our asian hair care. Many of us have a busy schedule and using hair oil on our hair is often the last thing on our mind. However, if you want to have healthy and shiny hair, you can try implementing the massaging of hair oil in your hair.

Getting the right kind of hair oil is very important. There are so many hair oils in the market and most will promote the benefits it provides. Before  you make a purchase, be sure to check out the manufacturer and the ingredients that are being used. As a rule of thumb, buying from a more reputable and trusted company will give a peace of mind than an unknown company.

Some of the more popular and effective hair oils that will give a beautiful asian hair are:

Jojoba Oil – this natural ingredient can be used for treating dry hair and helps to give the proper moisture that your hair needs. It can also soften your hair and can be used for detangling your hair before a shampoo.

Olive Oil –  it will help strengthen your hair and provide nourishment for your hair. It can also help to reduce stress on hair due to harsh environmental exposure and helps to build up a healthy hair by improving its elasticity.

Rosemary Herb Oil – this will help to reduce flakes and dandruff problems. Before using, warm up the oil a little and apply it onto your hair by massaging evenly thorough hair and rub it well on the scalp. Wrap hair with a hot towel and leave it on for 30 minutes before rinsing it off.

Coconut Oil – this is an oil that can help to lubricate the asian hair. Coconut oil contains elements like iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium, which are the vitamins your hair will need. It is also very effective for damaged hair and will help to strengthen it.

For best results, always massage your scalp with the hair oil and leave it overnight. If you are afraid of staining your bed sheet, you can wear put a towel on your pillow to absorb the oil. If you don’t want to leave it overnight, you can also use a hot towel to wrap your hair for 30 minutes after applying the hair oil, this will help to speed up the hair oil absorption.

The massaging action on your hair also stimulates blood circulation, which can help your hair to grow faster and healthier. The hair oil residue on your hair will also protect your hair against the hot sun and other harsh environmental elements. Besides, the hair oil will also gives your hair an extra shine.

If you can keep up with this regime for at least thrice a week, you will see that your hair will become more beautiful, shiny and healthy. It does make a lot of difference if you keep doing this regularly as compared to doing it once a month or once every 3 months. Consistency is the key here.

Of course, simply by relying on hair oil is not enough if your diet is in a mess. Eating the right kind of food will also help to make your asian hair healthy. Eat less unhealthy food like canned and processed food, which not only does not protect your hair but will damage it instead. Avoid eating too much instant food like instant noodles, instant soup, instant pasta etc, as many of these food contain msg that will cause hair loss. Snacks like potato chips and crackers should be eaten in moderation as they usually contain too much salt that will cause further harm to our asian hair. We should eat more fresh food, vegetable and protein instead.

Things You Need To Know Before Getting Your Hair Dyed | Asian Hair

Imagine you come across a luscious red head on the hair color box and you think you can simply apply the hair dye to your black asian hair and viola!  – you get the exact same hair color after an hour!  But is it really that simple and achieveable?

The truth is that the same red color is not going to turn out exactly as the one seen on the hair dye box. In fact, the color you achieve will depend on your existing hair color. If your asian hair is at its natural black or already have darker color like dark brown due from the previous hair dye job, it will come out as a dark red. But if you already have very light or blonde hair from a previous hair dye job, then it will turn out as bright red color! So don’t always think that what you see on the box is what you will get!

Many asians like to get bright hair colors like flaming red or purpleish red or pink highlights. To do that, they will need to bleach their hair in order to attain such bright colors. Bleach is not a hair dye and can cause damage to your hair if done frequently. It merely remove your existing hair color pigments and act as a base before a lighter hair dye colour like bright red, pink or blue is applied. Asians usually do more bleaching than caucasians because asians have naturally darker hair color and bleaching will help to bring out the light and bright color that they desire.

You need to know that all hair dye products will cause some damage ot the hair to a certain extent. If you seek a 100% all natural hair dye, then its best to go for plant-based henna hair dye. Otherwise, a temporary hair dye  like semi-permanent hair dye and and hair highlights should be able to color hair without harsh chemicals involved. Permanent hair dyes contain this element call hydrogen peroxide, which can be used to cover graying hair more effectively or to lighten hair color.  Semi-permanent hair dye usually won’t get washed out so fast but it will also won’t last as long as the permanent ones. However, semi-permanent hair dyes are less harmful to the hair then permanent ones.

One thing to remember is that you should never mix different hair dye products, such as buying another hair dye brand to mix with the first bottle when the first one is not enough. This will evoked potentially harmful reactions to your hair and worst still, an uneven hair color. After you had a hair dye or hair color job, you need to do touch-ups to sustain the color at least every 3 months as your hair starts to grow out and the color starts fading due to exposure sun, harsh environmental conditions and regular washing of hair.

So next time when you get your asian hair coloured, remember to set the right expectations and know what you are getting into.
