Measures to Consider When Applying Hair Color and Dyes

Applying hair colors and dyes can make your hair seem more vibrant and interesting. Furthermore, they protect the hair against the sun’s damage.  However, some dyes can dry out your hair and make it brittle. As such, below we have highlighted some of the safety precautions to consider when applying hair color and dyes. Nevertheless, you can first consult with your beautician since some dyes can cause irritation, redness, and burning when they come in contact with the skin.

Consider Your Scalp

You should know the condition of your scalp before coloring your hair. If you have an irritated or damaged scalp, avoid hair colors and dyes since they can worsen the condition. Additionally, avoid brushing your scalp three days before using dye to prevent causing scalp injuries.

Always Wear Gloves

Protective gloves help to keep the product off your skin thus preventing dermatitis. Additionally, research studies indicate that gloves protect the skin from ingredients such as paraphenylenediamine (PPD) that may cause harm.

Do a Patch Test

Moreover, before using hair colors and dyes, you should conduct a patch test. Patch tests are essential since they help to determine if the dye or hair color will cause allergic inflammations. The test involves applying a portion of the product on the skin and letting it rest for 24 hours. Afterward, if there are any signs of redness, itchiness, rashes or swelling, the dye is unsafe for use.

Follow the Directions

Additionally, be patient and wait for at least 72 hours before rinsing your hair. Once you start rinsing your hair, use warm or cool water while paying attention to the scalp.

Wait It Out
