Colouring hair black is a cinch. However, caring for black hair requires more diligence, which must have a lot of luster to look its best. Black-haired beauties like Elodie Yung keep this in mind.
Different from bleaching, colouring your hair black does not interfere with the hair’s ability to show a lot of luster. On the contrary, the new ammonia-free intensive tinting solutions increase the hair’s silky shine because they contain hair care products such as Macadamia oil and argan oil. In the case of black hair care, the challenge is to maintain the luster.
Six Black Hair Care Tips for Perfect Results
The most challenging part of caring for black hair is managing the new hair growth. The lighter the natural hair color, the more visible is the new hair growth. If the natural color is brown intensive tinting is a good solution. The pigments are washed out before the new hair growth becomes noticeable.
If you have used permanent hair color the new growth must be colored every three or four weeks. Root coloring sets are very practical for this purpose. The sets come with a brush and exact descriptions for touching up the new growth. You need to color only the areas around hair partings, visible hairlines and the temples.
Black hair care requires protecting the color pigments from UV light, which would otherwise bleach the pigments and reduce the color intensity. If you are outdoors for longer periods of time you should protect your hair with UV protective hair spray even during the winter months. While on summer vacation you should pull out all the stops in terms of UV protection including a hat or head scarf on the beach.
Every time you wash your dyed black hair you need to use special shampoos and rinses for color treated hair. Weekly intensive cures help to keep the hair cuticles intact and the pigments inside the hair, resulting in longer lasting healthy black hair.
You can visibly increase the shine of dyed black hair by using a flat iron (be sure to apply heat protective spray first). Our tip for a big entrance is to make your black hair as shiny and smooth as possible and wear it in a flowing open style. Your hair will look breathtakingly beautiful.
In order to create the most luster in your black hair, cover the tips of your index and middle fingers with a droplet of silicone-based hair end serum and apply the serum to some of the covering hair. The serum creates sensationally shiny black hair, without weighing it down.
