The 5 Most Common Myths About Coloring Your Hair

hair colorYou Shouldn’t Get Hair Color When You’re Pregnant

While there is no scientific proof that coloring your hair is risky during pregnancy, many women choose to wait until their third trimester to color their hair. Alternatively, highlights provide an option, as the dye is applied to your hair and not your scalp.

Only Colored Hair is Prone to Breakage

While coloring your hair and not properly maintaining it can often lead to breakage or split ends, a general maintenance routine can repair this damage. UV rays and heated styling tools can cause damage in addition to coloring your hair. 

Coloring Your Hair Damages It for Life

While coloring your hair opens up the cuticle and can cause damage, the proper hair care routine can return it to complete health. Innovations in conditioning treatments and weekly hair masks are often used to repair split ends.

Your Eyebrow Shade Should Match Your Hair

This old wives tale is not proven. As a friendly rule of thumb, most stylists suggest dying your hair one shade lighter if your hair is dark, and one shade darker if it’s light.

Summer Causes Your Color to Fade

Hair color, in fact, fades year-round when exposed to sunlight. If you’re in the sun for longer periods, wear a hat or sunshade to reduce the exposure to the color-fading sun.
