Hair Coloring
 
        Though originally used to color grey hair, Hair coloring now has become a fashion trend among people, particularly youngsters. However, for different people, the purpose of using hair color can be different. Hair coloring is most commonly used to change gray hair to its original color; it is also used to get desired shade of hair color. Sometimes it is used to restore the original color of hair, which has got discolored after using chemicals like tints, relaxers, sun bleaching, etc. Hair coloring products are characteristically categorized on the basis of time length they effect the colored hair. The most common classifications of hair colors are temporary, semi-permanent, demi-permanent (also known as 'deposit') and permanent.

Temporary Hair Color
        Temporary hair color has large pigment molecules and thus, do not enter the cuticle layer, allowing only a coating action that can be removed by shampooing. To coat the surface of hair, acid dyes are used that have a low affinity to hair and thatís why they can be easily removed after a shampoo. The color strength of temporary hair color can be improved by applying bleach before the application of the hair color. Temporary hair color is available in a range of product forms, such as rinses, shampoos, gels, sprays, foams, etc. This type of hair color is generally used to provide brighter and more vibrant shades, such as orange or red.

Semi-Permanent Hair Color
        This type of color is devised to deposit color on the hair shaft without lightening it. Its formula has smaller molecules than those found in temporary colors, and thus capable of partly penetrate the hair shaft. Such color has no developer, but can be used with heat for deeper penetration. As compared to temporary hair color, it also lasts longer, generally intact up to 4-5 shampoos. Semi-Permanent Hair Color are best for damaged and fragile hair. Moreover, this type of hair color has no ammonia.

Demi Permanent Hair Color
        Demi Permanent Hair Color has smaller color pigment molecules that those of semi permanent hair color, however still larger than molecules of permanent hair color. This type of coloring is done by mixing permanent hair color with low volume developer that avoids the ammonia from the permanent tube, and deposits color molecules only into the hair shaft. Since Demi are gentler than permanent hair color, they are best for tint-backs and colorpriming. Demi Permanent color also works great for toning pre-lightened hair.

Permanent Color
        Permanent Color has very small color pigment molecules, allowing penetration to the hair shaft. The products and lighteners that come under this category have a developer, or oxidizing agent, and an alkalizing ingredient. This color serves the purpose of raising the cuticle of the hair fiber so the shade can penetrate; helping the formation of shades within the hair fiber, and bringing about the lightening action of peroxide. Permanent Color is just apt for grey hair coverage as it contains an oxidizing colorant (containing ammonia and peroxide), to lift and deposit the new color into the hair shaft.

One should be careful while selecting and applying this color, because this color will not fade or become less vibrant if it's doing its job. When your roots start to grow, you natural hair color will reappear and you must color it more than once to maintain the new color. To get rid of the new color, you have to either remove the color with a stripping process, or color it back to its natural color. Either way, permanent hair color is usually hard to maintain, and to get rid of.

Hair Coloring Tips
 
        Are you bored of your hair color? Do you want to revamp your look? If yes, then the easiest way to change your look would be to opt for hair coloring. A new hair color can add a new dimension to your personality, making you look more confident and impressive. However, with the need to be in sync with the competition around, people are left with little or no time to flock to the salon. Nonetheless, when time or money doesn't allow you the pampering of salon color, you'll find that at home hair coloring preparations are both affordable and easy to use. Here are some handy tips that will make your hair look healthier and glow with the desired color and give you salon-like results, along with quick and easy solutions to common problems related with coloring your hair.

Hair Coloring Tips
 
        
  • Shampoo your hair properly and then condition them. Thereafter, wait for two days, to give the natural oils in your scalp time to resurface. This is an essential step to protect the scalp from chemical reactions and also would help your hair color to set better, giving you uniformed results overall.
  • On the day of hair color, you need to first arrange the toolkit for the hair coloring purpose. Put on an old t-shirt and collect some older towels and washcloths. Get some hair clips for sectioning your hair, a handy timer and a hand mirror, which will enable you to view the back of your head.
  • Section your hair so that you can handle you hair better, during the coloring process.
  • Before starting, make sure you read the instructions at least two times. Each of the coloring brands follows a definite style or process, so if you don't want to do a blunder, ensure that you read the instruction. Also, do not forget the strand test.
  • Put on the gloves and start the coloring process. If you are touching up the roots, be sure that this is the area that you target. You shouldn't be applying the color to the entire head as in the first application.
  • For those of you, who are coloring for the first time, start at the crown or at the nape of the neck. This because it is here that the natural hair color is darkest.
  • For the ends, apply hair color that is one level darker, without adding the developer. The color at the ends of the hair tends to fade faster than the rest, because the ends are porous and does not hold color.
  • Once you have applied the color, use a timer to keep track of the time. Often while reading a magazine, we completely forget to keep a track of the time. So, a time would be beneficial in this case.
  • After the specified time is over, rinse your hair thoroughly. Rinse, until the water runs clear.
  • Make sure to condition your hair properly. After the coloring process, hair becomes very vulnerable to damage.
 
Precautions
 
        
  • Always color your hair, when they are fully dry because color of damp and wet hair may get diluted later.
  • If your current hair color is darker than the next shade chosen, use a color remover to completely lose the old tint. However, they are effective on only artificial colors and not natural hair color.
  • For gray hair, use a shade darker than the shade of color used on the rest of the hair.
  • After coloring your hair, do not perm or straighten for several weeks.
  • If you go out in the sun or swim regularly, your hair color may wear off quickly. To avoid this, condition your hair regularly to negate the effects of summer heat and water.
  • If light-reddish blonde tones fade to orange color, you can use a little red-gold accent to give fashionable highlights
 
Understanding Hair Color
 
        Sometimes, the color we choose for our hair does not come out to be the same, as it appears in the swatch book of the product. It may be because of the 'underlying color pigment' of your hair that plays a key role in the final outcome of the hair color. To determine that you get the desired look, you need to identify the color of this pigment, melanin, in your hair. Melanin is generally of two types - Eumelanin, which is responsible of shades of brown and black in hair and Phaeomelanin, which brings yellowish blonde tones of hair to ginger and red colored hair.

White and gray hairs are the result of absence of melanin in hair. The tone of your hair color can be warm or cool. While red, orange and yellow are considered warm tones, shades of blue, green and violet fall under cooler tones. Hair can also be classified according to the level of color within each tone, on a scale of 1 to 10. As per this scale, 1 indicates black and 10 signify the lightest blonde hair. The intensity of hair color lightens, as you go down the scale. The level of hair color usually depends on the saturation of the hair pigment or the degree of concentration of melanin in the hair. The scale can be graded as follows:

1 - Black
        2 - Very Dark Brown
        3 - Dark Brown
        4 - Brown
        5 - Medium Brown
        6 - Light Brown
        7 - Dark Blonde
        8 - Light Blonde
        9 - Very Light Blonde
        10 - Light Platinum Blonde
