We’ve all been there. You try to save time and money with a drugstore hair color kit that promises salon results in the comfort of your own home, but the results are nothing like you expected and far from salon quality. Don’t despair. Corrective color services can help to save your hair from a DIY gone wrong.
Color Correction? What Is It?
Color corrections are a hair color service that can help to restore your hair as close to the desired color as possible. This is a rescue service for hair color related accidents. This is usually a multi-step process and may require a few visits to complete, so you’ll need to be patient. After all, beauty is worth the wait, and hurrying the process could damage your hair.
Correcting Color That’s Too Dark
If your color turned out too dark, the first step in the process will be to remove as much of the dark pigment as possible with a color cleanse. With that completed, we can then begin the process of lightening your strands. This part of the process must be carefully customized based on how healthy your hair is and how much lighter it needs to be. We may need to schedule a few visits for this, but it’s important to not do too much too fast to protect your hair from damage.
Correcting Color That’s Too Light
If your hair turned out a few shades lighter than you intended it’s usually a little easier to correct. A darker shade can often be applied on top of the existing color or perhaps a few lowlights added in, but don’t be tempted to try this at home. Choosing the wrong type of dye or the wrong color will make matters worse. The last thing you want is to end up with a brassy, green, or orange mess and more steps added to your services. Your colorist has been professionally trained and knows how to mix the dyes and colors to get the desired effect.
