Dying My Hair with Lush Caca Rouge Henna – Light Brown to Ginger

My Hair Colour

Do you like the color of your hair? Or, maybe you like it, but you just want to give it some shine and depth. There are many different types of hair color, and if you understand the differences, you can achieve more satisfying results.


Many women say, “I hate my hair color” and never think about their skin color. It is good to consider skin and eye color when choosing hair color. Most professionals recommend that you choose no more than two or three shades darker or lighter than your natural hair color to ensure that it “matches” your skin tones. However, if you are looking for a dramatic effect, choosing the opposite hair color can achieve the desired effect.


There are essentially three different types of hair color on the market today.

1. The permanent dye is perhaps the most stressful hair color and should be applied by a professional, although there are many sets for home use. Permanent hair coloring is generally a two-step process in which the natural color is removed from the hair and then the desired color is applied. Because this type of hair dye contains peroxide and ammonia, it can produce unexpected results on your hair, so you should weigh this treatment carefully. Permanent hair coloring is probably best if you want to achieve dramatic results. You can touch up the roots of your hair as they grow.

2 Semi-permanent dyes and semi-permanent vegetable dyes are generally used to darken the hair. Since they don’t remove the color, they just add it and make it darker. It is very important to take into account the natural color of the hair, because when two colors are mixed, third color results, which should be tested first on a hair color card. Semi-permanent dyes give your hair shine and are removed after a dozen washes, so you don’t need to touch up the hairline.

3. Henna conditioners have been used for centuries by many cultures for hair and fabrics. The color is permanent and henna reacts differently to every natural hair color and texture of the hair that is colored. Write it on a small piece of hair before applying it anywhere, as the results may not be what you expected. Although modern henna conditioners are commercially manufactured, they still contain some henna extracts.

4 Commercial conditioners also give your hair shine and depth. Conditioners are gaining popularity again after overcoming the “blue hair” label disadvantage of 20 years ago. People who had gray or white hair noticed that their hair was taking on a dirty yellow hue, so they smeared conditioners on their hair to remove the yellow. Unfortunately, these conditioners left a blue shine instead of yellow. This is no longer the case, as the chemicals have become more versatile. These conditioners are available in any color you want and can be washed out quickly.


I dyed my hair for the first time and of course, went for the most permanent option of henna (I don’t do things by half!) and I love it!
