- Cut Dye Irritation with Artificial Sweeteners
Hair dyes have chemicals like ammonia in them that often cause irritation and itchy scalp. Adding a few packets of artificial softeners to the colour mix helps prevent such problems. The pH levels of the sugar substitute help offset or lessen ammonia’s uncomfy side effect.
- Hidden ponytails help keep sleek styles in place
A low-maintenance hairstyle best suited for office and travel that looks super chic and polished. When creating a tucked-behind-the-ear look pull the front section of your hair tight and anchor in a low pony behind the nape of the neck from the sides. The pony will hide behind the rest of your hair resting on top of it, and your tuck will stay in place all day.
- Espresso colours hair
A shot of espresso gives you much more than just an energy boost. When the hair goal is a deep chocolate hue, espressos are often a go-to. Many hairstylists add this strong drink to the colour mix to achieve that perfect chocolate colour.
