What You Need to Know About Coloring Your Fine, Thin or Thinning Hair
Although coloring hair can put your locks at risk for breakage when hair is fine, there are some techniques that can be used to help minimize damage while maximizing color results. Although the safest thing to do when coloring your hair is going to a professional, if this isn’t an option for you be sure to read the full instructions and follow the directions on the box when coloring at home.
Here are some expert tips to guide you along the way:
- Spot test to verify that your hair and scalp does not have any adverse reactions to the hair dye.
- Hair dye works faster on fine, thin hair so it has the tendency to come out darker or more extreme. Be mindful of the time and do not leave it on longer than described in instructions.
- Divide hair up into multiple sections and color small areas at a time to ensure that the application is even and precise across the hair, especially thin hair.
- Dye less often because fine hair is better at holding onto the color molecules, helping color to last longer and not fade.
- Mix a variety of tones and highlights to add dimension and depth.
Enhance any dye job by styling with products that add color in addition to thickness to your hair. Color Sprays like Toppik’s Colored Hair Thickening Spray add fullness and body to hair when sprayed into the roots.
