There are many options. The best thing to do is to call and set an appointment for a consultation. There is no charge and by seeing you in person we will assess your skin tone and eye color to determine what color and coloring technique would be best to address your specific desires.
There are many temporary colors and depending on the stylist. I use Goldwell Color. Arguably one of the highest quality colors on the market .
If we use a permanent color it may last from several weeks to several months depending on the porosity of the hair.
If we use a permanent color it may last from several weeks to several months depending on the porosity of the hair. Though through that time it will gradually fade. The other issue would be that there would be a re-growth. That is because the hair is growing and as the new hair comes out it will not have any of the artificial color be it lighter or darker. A retouch is recommended every four weeks or so. A semi permanent color only lasts about 4 to 6 weeks. If we have removed the color as with highlights it too will gradually fade and lighten through the growing cycle. Highlights need to be retouched every 8 to 12 weeks depending on the technique used and how much contrast was achieved. There is no way to achieve a temporary highlight.
Permanent color works by opening up the cuticle and going through a lift and deposit process. It is a chemical process and if the correct product is used, the amount of damage that occurs in usually minimal. That is why it's important to go to a highly trained professional. The humorous saying comes to mind here is: DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!
I would say 4 to 8 weeks depending on the situation
Hair is somewhat like rope and split ends are like that rope becoming unraveled. By using quality products, being gentle with your hair and having it trimmed regularly.
Dandruff is usually caused by an over production of skin and not getting it sloughed off fast enough. So a build up
of skin occurs. Dandruff is dried up, tiny bits of scalp skin. Generally a scalp brush will help with this challenge if this is not enough then a product containing zinc pirothione should be used If this does not handle the situation consult with a doctor.
I recommend once a day depending upon the conditions. Often , a thorough rinse is enough. If you have dry scalp, it could be every two to three days.
On curly hair it can make it more curly or frizzy. On straight hair in may cause it to go flat especially if there is a no fixative involved.
Thinning or male pattern baldness is a result of genetics. Science has recently discovered that an abundance of the male hormone testosterone will cause the advent of male pattern baldness. Is there any thing that can be done to prevent or at least slow it down? There are two products on the market that have been shown to help slow down or arrest the condition. One is Monoxidill the other is Propecia. Both require you to consult a physician for a prescription. Do products like Monoxidill and Propecia really work? They have been shown to work with some people, however discontinued use will result in the condition to revert to its previous state. How about hair transplants? They do work however they are expensive. It is also a surgical procedure. We recommended that if you were to use this method, that you find an extremely proficient doctor to perform the procedure.
As far as a negative effect, I can say this. In going through the process of either one of these chemical services, the cuticle is raised and it never settles down completely. That is why we use only the highest quality Color, Perms and Smoothers. Also a quality conditioner should always be used regularly after any chemical service.
Our whole body changes as we grow. Some of the most noticeable changes that one might notice is: As we grow older our hair tends to thin. The texture tends to get more course as the structure of Grey Hair (or what Mark calls Mature Blonde!) is different. Sometimes Curly hair may lose some of it's curl. And sometimes hair may gain some curl. Getting old is tough. But we work with our clients to maintain a healthy relationship with their hair.
