How Should Men Style Coloured Hair

There are a lot of things you must look into before choosing a different hair colour, like your natural skin colour or undertone (if you have green veins, you are warm-toned, and must choose warm colours like shades of yellow, orange, and brown hair colours; and if you have blue veins, you are cool-toned and hence should opt for cool colours like ash blondes and shades of blue and purple), your style and your natural hair colour, too!

Does Hair Colour Damage Your Hair?

Now that we’ve talked all about different hair colours, let's jump to a really serious question- Does hair colour damage your hair? The answer is- yes when it comes to permanent hair colours. Excessive usage of bleach and ammonia-based products leads to rough, frizzy hair, prone to breakage, not to mention, increasing the chance of hair loss. These may even lead to an itchy scalp.

So does that mean you should stop colouring your hair? No! Just like there's a solution for everything, there's a solution for this as well. Thanks to the constantly advancing beauty technology, now we have ammonia-free hair colours, such as temporary hair colours. Free from ammonia and peroxide, these hair colours wash out within one shampoo wash, and hence, do not damage your hair. These usually have a gentle formula, so if you have a sensitive scalp, this should be your go-to! Another option is a colouring conditioner, which helps in conditioning your hair along with colouring it, leading to soft, silky smooth hair. However, the convenience and ease of using temporary hair colours makes it the best option ever.

Should Men Dye Their Hair Before Or After Haircut?

It is recommended to dye your hair after you get a haircut because if you dye your hair before and get a haircut later, you might end up ruining the different tones of your new hair colour. And this solely applies to permanent hair colours. Also, after you get a haircut, you’ll have a better idea as to how you wish to colour it.
