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.

Choosing The Right Shampoo For Your Asian Hair Type

There are many different brands and types of shampoos out there for the asian hair, from the cheaper and common brands you can purchase at the local supermarket, personal, pharmacy stores to branded and more expensive shampoo brands like Kerastas and Philip B. that can only be bought from speciality salons and stores. So how do one chooses?

First of all, you got to know your hair type. It is easier to determine what type of shampoo your hair will need if you have permed or coloured your hair recently. If your hair is permed, you might want to use a specialty shampoo for permed hair in order to protect the curls.  If you had your hair colored recently, then you will need a shampoo that will protect the color and not strip it from your hair. Good shampoos for colored hair are also those with higher moisturizing content because your hair is usually very dry after a colour job. Is your hair dry? Oily? Thin or full and coarse? Then you will need different hair shampoo formulated to meet your special needs. You can get your trusted hair stylist to suggest a  product, or do a search on the beauty or hair forum to see what people recommend for asian hair.

Always be aware of claims made by shampoo manufacturers, as some don’t really live up to their claims. The only thing regulated by the Food & Drug Administration is the list of ingredients on the back of the shampoo bottle and they have to reflect the contents used in the product truthfully. This means that manufacturers can make claims like their shampoos can moisturize hair or add volume to asian hair, whether or not they actually do. However, most  consummers don’t even bother to read the list, let alone know what are the significance of the ingredients. If the product is cheap and affordable, you can buy it on trial and error to see if the shampoo really live up to its claim. If it’s expensive, you probably want to seek others for their opinion and experience via personal contacts or from online forums, before deciding if you really want to invest in it.

You also have to understand that most shampoos and conditioners work on your hair only temporarily by leaving traces of product residue behind on your hair after washing. They do not have long term effect on the condition of your hair at all, you will require regular usage of hair treatment conditioning mask in order to see improvement and it usually requires a longer term period. There are people who will rather buy cheaper shampoo and conditioner and then invest in more expensive treatment products. Of course there are also people who can afford and only buy the higher-tier and more expensive brands only. The thing is there are no hard and fast rules here.

Lastly, you do not have to believe that you have to use the entire hair product line from one brand in order to achieve best results. Every shampoo can clean the hair and every conditioner can condition your hair. It’s ok to mix and match products from different asian hair or non asian hair brands and stick with something or a combination once you find it working for you.
