More men are coloring their hair more than ever before from covering the gray with gentle semi permanent colors to highlighting for that I’ve been at the beach look. Even children are coloring their hair, with a little help from mom.Most men want a low maintenance hair color that gracefully fades away, with no unsightly regrowth.
The answer to this question is, use semi permanent hair color or some of the new demi colors. Semi and Demi hair color won’t alter the natural pigments and they do a great job of growing out gracefully. This means when the color fades, you are left with your natural color in tact—which eliminates a regrowth or a brassy color.
The biggest problem I see is large numbers of men and teens are bleaching their hair to a very yellow stage…we have the answer to these common mistakes in our education section…Oops, what do I do now? See the categories of semi permanent hair color and the bleaching section.
If you want to become very light blonde and your hair is a dark natural brown, you cannot achieve a pastel blonde color with a permanent hair color in one step.
This brassy color is the underlying pigment in the hair. They are always there, just waiting to come out. One solution is to use an on-the-scalp-bleaching product, if the hair is still too yellow, re-color your hair with a semi or demi hair color in a very light blue/violet base.
Most permanent hair dyes will only lighten hair 4 to 5 shades lighter and leaves the hair very yellow/gold and brassy.
So come on guys…you can do it too…have fun.
