If you're on the hunt for the best new hair products and trends for August 2019, our editors have the inside scoop. Here's what to look for.
Thank heavens, yes, hair color can be removed! Whether you got a little experimental with box dye after consuming a dangerous cocktail of white wine and YouTube tutorials or just want to change up your look, know that it’s very possible to remove hair color (both natural and dyed). We recommend letting a salon professional do this to protect the structure of your mane and ensure you leave with healthy hair—not glasslike, damaged strands in danger of snapping off any second.
“Some of the reasons someone might want to strip the hair are if anyone who has natural or artificial color wants to go lighter with their hair color and if someone has multiple layers of built-up color, the only way to remove that would be to strip it,” La Monaco explains.
If the time has come for change, embrace it! Call your stylist and make an appointment to have your hair color removed.
When you say strip, what is really happening is that the lightener or color remover is eating away the pigment in the hair...This usually takes place in the cortex—inner layer of hair. This can occur in both natural and artificial hair color
Stripping color from your hair almost always includes the use of bleach, which is inherently damaging to your hair’s structural integrity. There’s a big difference between you bleaching your fragile mane over your bathtub and a trained salon professional doing it—and the two are entirely different experiences. During the latter, your stylist has access to pro-only formulas designed to keep your hair feeling strong and looking, well, like non-damaged human hair. What more could a girl ask for?
Once you’re home with your fresh new shade, aftercare is the name of the game. La Monaco recommends Matrix’s Total Results Keep Me Vivid Shampoo, Conditioner, and Lamination Spray to help keep minimalist, adventurous, and expressive fade-resistant, long-lasting colors looking bold, feeling addictively soft, and radiating with megawatt prismatic shine—all with a stop-everything scent you can’t get enough of.
Still in doubt? Your best resource is your stylist. A consultation appointment is doesn’t cost anything and it can help to put your hair-loving nerves at ease—our salon locator is a great place to book one.
