5 Common Myths About Hair Coloring Debunked

January 9, 2020

You shouldn't believe everything you read or hear about hair coloring. There's a lot of information out there about hair coloring, but unfortunately it's not all accurate. To help clear up some of this misinformation, we've compiled a list of the five most common hair coloring myths.


#1) Coloring Damages Your Hair


While certain types of dye can damage your hair -- typically by drying it out -- this doesn't apply to all hair dyes. There are dozens of high-quality hair dyes available that don't dry out or otherwise damage hair. By choosing a high-quality dye, you'll reap the benefits of both beautiful and healthy hair. And if you're still worried that your hair will dry out after being colored, consider using a color-protecting conditioner.


#2) Colored Hair Looks Unnatural


Another common myth is that colored hair looks unnatural or fake. When properly done, most people can't tell the difference between colored and uncolored hair. High-quality dye will evenly distribute itself into your hair, resulting in a natural appearance. The key thing to remember is that you need high-quality hair dye, as low-quality hair dye doesn't offer the same level of performance.


#3) DIY Coloring Is Just as Good as Salon Coloring


Don't assume that a do-it-yourself (DIY) hair coloring kit is just as good as a professional salon coloring service. The allure of coloring your hair with a DIY kit may sound enticing, but you'll get better results from a professional hair coloring service offered by a salon. DIY hair coloring kits often contain harsh chemicals that can damage your hair and irritate your scalp. In comparison, salon hair coloring services use high-quality dyes to protect against hair damage and scalp irritation.


#4) Hair Coloring Isn't Popular


You may not realize it, but a significant number of women, as well as many men, have colored hair. Statistics show, in fact, that roughly 30% of women aged 30 to 59 dye their hair at least once a month. Rates of hair coloring are even higher among younger women. Regardless, it's safe to assume that about one out of every three women have colored hair.


#5) Coloring Doesn't Reach the Roots


Hair coloring can most certainly reach the roots. There's even a specific type of hair coloring service that's designed to target the roots. Known as a root touch-up, it involves the application of hair dye to the roots. As your hair grows, the roots may require additional dye to maintain a balanced appearance with the rest of your hair.
