12 Senseless Hair Colour Myths Busted For You!

12 Senseless Hair Colour Myths Busted For You!

Simply put, coloured hair is a creative expression of self and the self is ever-changing. Are you the person you were yesterday? No. We evolve every minute of our existence. If we are changing, why can’t the colour of our hair? Whenever you colour your hair, you might look and feel like a whole new person. Imagine getting brilliantly vibrant highlights, subtle lowlights, soft balayage, or even fun global hair colour to replace your rich black hair! People you see on a daily basis might not even recognize you at the first glance. But that’s the fun part, right?
However, a lot of people restrict themselves from the crazy world of hair colours for men and hair colours for women giving into the out-of-the-world myths surrounding the whole process. You must have come across some weird myths too because we sure have. So, ‘hair’ we have some of the silliest hair colouring myths that are simply untrue!

# Myth 1: Hair colouring causes irreparable damage!

Hair colouring causes irreparable damage!

A common misconception associated with colouring your hair is the severity of the damage. Let’s get to the root of this myth. Does hair colour cause damage? Yes. When you colour your hair, the developer opens up the hair cuticle for the colour to get deposited. However, a good post-hair colour routine including hair colour-protect shampoo, conditioners and others, helps you maintain the colour and steer clear of damage. Isn’t that the same case when you apply make-up on your face?

Also, if you’re scared of long-term commitments and damage, you can always try temporary hair colours. They leave a coating on the outer layer of the hair and can be washed off according to your convenience. Temporary hair colours do not damage your hair as they do not alter the natural hair colour you own.
At the end of the day, your hair will get damaged if you won’t maintain a good hair care routine – coloured or otherwise!

#Myth 2: Colouring at home is super tough!

Of all myths we’ve heard, this one takes the cake. When it comes to permanent hair colours, yes, we kind of agree. But colouring altogether? No way. Temporary hair colours can be applied in minutes within the four walls of your home without bleaching! The best part about using temporary hair colours is that you don’t need external help at all. One shampoo is all it takes to wash it off.

#Myth 3: You can shampoo your hair soon after colouring

You can shampoo your hair soon after colouring

It is advised to not subject coloured hair to shampoo right away after colouring. With temporary hair colour, one shampoo session is all it takes to lose it entirely. While dealing with permanent hair colours, it is ideal to wait for 72 hours before shampooing. In this manner, you give the colour enough time to settle.

#Myth 4: It’s totally okay to use regular shampoo for coloured hair

No. When you get your locks permanently coloured, you shouldn’t use a regular shampoo. There are a number of colour-protect products available in the hair care market specifically designed for hair subjected to permanent hair colours. Using regular shampoo will not do anything for coloured hair and also might even fade the permanent colour you got.

#Myth 5: Colouring is expensive

Colouring is expensive

We can guarantee that whoever started spreading this rumour about hair colouring has no idea how it works! A lot of people subconsciously associate colouring with expensive parlour visits. Colouring isn’t expensive at all. Colorisma’s range of 5 vibrant temporary hair colours is available in a kit that costs just 999rs! Colouring is expensive only if you want it to be!

#Myth 6: Colouring is a trap with no escape.

People assume that if you colour your hair once, there’s no going back. You have to keep colouring it over and over again, which is simply not the case. Recolouring your hair is a choice totally up to you. After colouring your hair, you can retain your natural hair colour again after some time. If your colouring phase is over, you don’t have to colour again!

#Myth 7: Colouring increases grey hair

 Colouring increases grey hair

What even?! Not at all. Greying has nothing to do with colouring and everything to do with genetics. Our hair begins to turn grey only when melanin in our hair stops producing the colour pigment as it used to. Colouring in no way accelerates greying.

#Myth 8: Switching one hair colour to another is difficult

Switching one hair colour to another is difficult

Keeping permanent hair colours aside, switching one colour to another is a cakewalk. With temporary hair colours, it doesn’t even take more than 15 minutes to switch from one colour to another. You wash off a bright red hair colour and dab on a funky blue hair colour before heading to a night out after brunch. Doesn’t it sound similar to changing an outfit?

#Myth 9: Hair colouring often leads to hair thinning

Hair colouring often leads to hair thinning

False. Hair thinning is a result of unhealthy eating habits, changing environmental factors and lifestyle changes. When your hair isn’t getting sufficient vitamins and minerals, you’ll begin to experience thinning. Colouring sadly gets the blame. Temporary hair colours do not damage your hair at all.

#Myth 10: Maintaining hair colour is costly and time-consuming!

Maintaining hair colour is costly and time-consuming!

Ideally, you should have a good hair care routine to maintain healthy hair. Once you colour your hair, you can follow the same routine but with colour-protect products instead. The time you used to spend on hair care doesn’t change. Colour-protecting products are available at reasonable prices in the hair care market.

If you want to colour your hair and you have the best hair colour in your mind, do not think twice. Just go for it. Have fun. Maintain a good hair care routine, pamper your hair once in a while with the right products and you’ll be fine. Do not lend your ears to false myths. It’s only hair, it’ll grow back again.
