5 things you should know before you dye your hair

Now that purple hair has become a huge hit among celebs, it’s only a matter of time before loyal fans become inspired by this new trend. But, before you make the choice to go lilac, here are a few things you might want to consider.

Know your natural hair color
Consider the tone of your natural hair before you choose your shade. Like make-up, your natural tone determines whether a certain color will suit you.

Be patient
Drastic hair colors take much longer to achieve so make sure you are realistic about what you want and how long it will take to get it.

Try on a wig
This is a timeless way to see whether or not you can pull off your desired shade.

Buy a shade lighter
Since hair dye always comes out darker than you expect, buy a hair dye that’s one or two shades lighter than the color you want.

Know about formulas
If you have sensitive skin, go for a mousse-like formulas. Gel or liquid formulas are better suited for those with thicker hair.
