Dyeing Dangers

June 27, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

I recently wrote a blog about Katy Perry’s hairstyles that make her who she is. Katy Perry is so famous in todays industry because of her brave attitude to come out each day as who she is and be herself. I briefly talked about the styles that Katy sports because she inspires many girls to stay true to who they are and express themselves. Although she does a great job at expressing her own attitude and personality, there are a few precautions she should take when she styles her hair. I’d like to take a moment to talk specifically about the colors that appear in her hair. Hair dye can actually be quite a danger to your hair if you’re not careful.

When girls want to look just like their favorite celebrities, the measures they go to can be surprising. Today, there are girls out there who will dye their hair blue just to be like a certain superstar in the magazines. If they’re not careful with their dyeing techniques, a huge toll could be taken on their hair.

The reason stars like Katy Perry have a new hair color each time you see them on TV is because they can afford expensive wigs that look like real hair. Whether those wigs are blue, black, yellow, or pink, they look so real and when fans see them they want to look just like that. However, we can’t really afford the thousand-dollar wigs that celebrities can so we go for the next best thing: hair dye.

It looks so cool to walk around with blue streaks in your hair or to just have pure pink hair but have you ever wondered how much damage it could cause? Well the truth is, if you aren’t careful when you dye your hair, you could damage your hair worse than you would if you straightened it every day for the rest of your life. It’s kind of a wakeup call when you find out that hair dye can be more dangerous than a hair straightener, isn’t it?

The reason it’s more harmful is because of the process it takes to properly dye your hair. If you do it by yourself, you could seriously damage your hair because you don’t know what you’re doing. The color will probably not show up the way you want it if you don’t have a hairdresser help you. The funny thing about dyeing your hair is that most of the time you have to bleach the area that you plan on dyeing. For brunettes especially this is hard because it’s a long process to bleach your head of hair to be white and then go to a completely different color like pink or blue. It’s difficult not to damage your hair by completely bleaching it.

After so many times of repeating this process, your hair could be dry to the bone and frizzy with no shine or volume. That’s why it’s so important to dye hair the right way or just not do it at all. Realize that some trends are cute for movie stars or singers but you can still express yourself in the way you dress or act. Be smart with your hairdressing decisions.

Men Can Straighten Their Hair Too!

Growing up my older brother had really curly hair, which he used to spend what seemed like hours in front of the mirror trying to tame. His only hairstyle choices were extremely short so the curl would be cut out of his hair or something that involved curl. He just like many men born with curly hair would have done anything to get straight hair since to many of these guys curls are a girly thing they do not like on their own heads.

Of course many men do not think of it but they too can use a flat iron on their hair to get rid of their naturally curly hair and get those straight hairstyles they see on the men in Hollywood that the ladies love. Some guys might be reluctant to try this depending on their personality since to many this kind of grooming is just too feminine. But many of the companies that make hair irons try and actually cater to guys by creating models that they would not mind using as much. The popular pink hair irons that are all the rage with the women just would not work in a guy’s bathroom so you can get things such as a camo design from Chi flat irons that a guy would not mind using at all.

Since many men have short hair it is important that they use a flat iron that has a small plate size so that it is easier to run the hair through the iron to get the hair straight. And just like with women it is essential that men use a quality professional straightener that will not damage their hair and leave it dried out and unhealthy. After all the whole point is to look good for the ladies and you want them to still be able to run their fingers through your hair.
