Whether you’ve been covering up those pesky grays since your early twenties or you’ve dabbled with coloring over your natural hue, there are some myths floating around out there about hair coloring. Fear not, we’re here to set the record straight. Below, seven myths about coloring your strands that simply aren’t true.

Myth 1: Colouring Hair Strips Away Volume

Truth: Quite the contrary. The lightening agents used to colour your hair make the cuticle swell, so individual strands appear thicker and fuller. And when it comes to colouring your hair, swelling is actually a good thing. The more swollen the hair shaft, the easier it is for the colour to stick.

Myth 2: Colouring Your Hair Can Be Damaging

Truth: When you apply dye to your hair, you’re opening the cuticle so that colour can be deposited, and yes, that causes damage. But using the right product can help prevent it. At TrimX, we carefully choose only products that we can totally trust to be beneficial for your grooming needs. We only use damage-blocking technology manufactured hair colours and conditioners that help keep your strands hydrated and help block breakage.

Myth 3: You Should Colour Your Eyebrows To Match Your Hair

Truth: Not necessarily. In fact, we’re huge fans of having a slight contrast between your hair colour and your brows. Plus, darker brows frame your face better than lighter ones do.

Myth 4: It’s Ok To Wash Your Hair Right After A Colour Treatment

Truth: You should wait at least a full 72 hours before washing your hair after colouring. Why? That’s how long it takes for the hair cuticles to fully close, which traps in the colour. Once you start washing your hair again, use lukewarm or cool water to prevent your strands from drying out. Oh, and the pool is a no-go for at least two weeks—the chlorine will strip the cuticles, allowing minerals to get into the shaft and alter your hue. No thank you.

Myth 5: At-home Hair Colour Kits Are Hard To Use

Truth: It’s an option you have if you wish to. As it’s tricky to see that back of the head, I would say, just get to the salon and get a professional take care of it for you.  TrimX, is India’s largest and No.1 Men’s Grooming Salon Chain that   offers the best in hair colouring services at honest prices. The stylists are well trained and have deep knowledge regarding hair colours.

Myth 6: You Can Apply Hair Colour At Any Time

Truth: In order for the colour to effectively bond to your hair, your locks need to be somewhat clean. Why? Since the dye needs to penetrate the cuticle, your hair needs to be free of any built-up product (especially wax). This can also prevent the colour from distributing evenly. It’s best to colour hair that has been washed 24 to 48 hours prior, because the natural oils will protect your scalp from any irritation.

Myth 7: Fancy Shampoo For Colour-treated Hair Is Overrated

Truth: Investing in products that are specially designed for colour-treated hair is worth it and can save you money in the long run. Here’s why: These products not only prevent colour from fading fast (limiting the number of trips back to the salon) but also help restore shine and moisture (two qualities that can be stripped away after a colour job).
