Caring for Your Hair: Changing Color, Choosing Wisely

Caring for Your Hair - Changing Color, Choosing Wisely
By Cindy Tawiah, C.E.O. of Diva by Cindy Hair Products


Summer is a hot time to consider a cool color for your hair. A change in hair hue can alter a woman's appearance and attitude. But before going fire engine red or honey blonde, here is information that can help with deciding if a semi, demi or permanent color is the best option for you.


Add Depth

If you are seeking to add depth to your natural color, then a semi-permanent (rinse) is for you. It requires no mixing and lasts for approximately eight to 12 washes. Semi-permanents are great for adding red tones to brown hair. Two examples of semi-permanent color brands are Adore and Jazzing.


Add Degrees

For an intense, longer lasting color, select a demi-permanent. It’s ammonia-free, and lasts longer than a semi-permanent, while causing less damage than a permanent. Demi-permanents are healthy alternatives for covering grey and using immediately following a relaxer or permanent wave services. Clairol Radiance is an example of a demi-permanent hair color.


Add Drama

Whether you decide to go fire red or jet-black, a permanent is the best option when selecting a color that is shades lighter or darker than your natural color. It is best to have permanent color applied by a professional stylist, to minimize the breakage and damage to your hair.

Revlon and L’Oreal Paris have permanent hair color options.


After any type of color service, defeat dryness and damage by utilizing a conditioning treatment such as Diva by Cindy Ultimate Treatment to balance the ph, seal the cuticles, and soften the hair.


Remember, hair coloring is a process that can bring about disastrous consequences if the right type is not selected, so chose wisely!
