Haircut faux pas to watch out for

Haircut faux pas to watch out for
A lot can go wrong when it comes to maintaining your hair or getting a new look. From waiting too long between colour treatments to failing to properly maintain your hair’s condition, here are Beauty4me’s top hair faux pas to watch out for:

Having continuously dark roots

For those who dye their hair, avoiding dark roots it an important part of having a quality colour technique. Try to avoid waiting too long between hair dye sessions to prevent dark roots from clashing unpleasantly with your colour. If you have highlights or an all-over hair colour dye, have your hair redone even six weeks at least.

If you’re willing to try something trendier to avoid frequent salon visits, try the Balayage colour style, which gently fades colour into your roots to avoid the unsightly straight line of contrast that happened when your hair grows out.

If you dye your hair at home, you can ensure that dark roots are a thing of the past by strategically timing how long you apply the dye to certain areas of your hair. Apply the dye first to new hair that has grown out and has no colour yet. Let the dye do its work for ten minutes before applying the product to the rest of your hair.

Failing to maintain the quality of your hair

It is all very well trying out new haircuts and colours, but when it comes to having a good head of hair, quality is your top priority. Care for your hair by experimenting with different masks and conditioning treatments until you find the product that works for you. 

Forgetting about hair hygiene

Hair hygiene is about more than just shampooing and conditioning. Scalp issues such as dandruff and pest problems like lice are also important to keep your eye on. If you have dandruff, make sure you use shampoo with anti-dandruff properties and ensure you take care of lice by checking your hair regularly and by acting swiftly with an anti-lice wash if you discover any pests.
