The coloured hair crave
Hair colouring is all about the reactions that take place in between the pigments in your hair, dye, peroxide and ammonia.
While it can be fun experimenting with colours, the damage they can cause in the form of dry and brittle hair can dampen the fun.
Most celebrities like Shatta Wale, Medical, E.L and others who colour their hair do so for the fun of it and sometimes to brand themselves.
Ms Linda M. Appiah, a hair stylist said the hair colouring was in vogue and this time round both the youth and the old were interested in colouring their hairs.
“It is a long-term commitment that will have you rushing back to the salon every month” she told The Spectator in Accra on Monday.
According to her, hair colouring was one of the trends that many followed to give a change to their overall look.
“It is an intensive process which includes several steps and extra care,” she said.
There are a variety of colours one can choose from to use on their hair, but most used colours are blue, green, gold, blonde, red and pink.
On the other hand, she added that over treating hair with these chemicals could cause it to loose the shine and break easily.
While processed hair can be revived to a certain extent with hair care treatments, the only way to get rid of the damage from over-processing is to chop your hair off.
