In today’s world, there has been a rise in the hair dye trend. Dyeing hair is a practice common in every age group in the modern world. Some dye their hair to cover the whites and grays whereas most commonly teens dye their hair according to the trends, coloring their hair to a color that’s considered more fashionable. Hair dyes can be permanent, semi-permanent, and temporary too. Permanent dyes last the longest and all the hair dye types have a certain limit of hair washes after which the dye starts fading, and washes away eventually. Temporary dyes are washed after one or two dyes and are mostly used for darker, vibrant, or funky hair colors.
One could dye their hair as one overall color or dye according to the different hair dye trends. Streaks and gradation are produced by different coloring techniques. There are off-scalp and on–scalp application techniques. Off-scalp techniques are highlights, lowlights, balayage, ombre, dip dye, etc. In addition to these, the on-scalp methods such as root touchups serve the purpose of covering grays and all-over colors when one wants to dye their hair with one solid color. Moreover, hair must be bleached before coloring in order to lighten the original hair color.
Hair coloring is a very common practice that could be done at home using a box dye or one could get it done by a professional hairdresser. Hairdressers earn a huge amount of money in this specific field. However, hair coloring and hair bleaching have adverse effects such as skin discoloration, allergy, skin irritation, and hair breakage. The experts have also suspected the presence of carcinogenic and mutagenic chemicals in some hair dyes. In addition to this, it is not guaranteed that the desired color would be obtained after the final results which might leave one disappointed.
