Hair colouring can be harmful for your hair and scalp. If not done professionally, it can trigger negative side effects such as, eye swelling, watery eyes, and a burning scalp. The reason is that normal hair dyes contain damaging ingredients, namely coal tar and formaldehyde. Though coal tar is a common shampoo for itchy scalp ingredient, it is a carcinogen and so is formaldehyde. PPDs and Ammonia can even cause dermatitis and blisters.
Opt for botanical hair dyes which are free from harmful additives. Here at PHS Hairscience, we only use premium botanical hair dyes. Get a new look with these hair inspirations for the festive season:
1. Rose Gold
According to fashion magazines and experts, rose gold is turning out to be the color of 2016 in Singapore. You can look subtle and pretty and do not have to commit to too strong a color. You can also try variations like coral pink and baby lights with strawberry balayage.
Delay washing rose-gold dyed hair until 2-3 days after the coloring. Use cold water and a color protecting shampoo, and wash your hair as infrequently as you can. You should never try to dye your hair rose gold on your own.
This is a highlighting technique, where the transition of color is such that it looks natural to the hair. The re-growth lines are less noticeable.

Model Irene Kim sported a multi colored strand during the NYFW 2015. You can get it camouflaged beneath a natural layer, or add streaks towards the ends. However, familiarize yourself with the color wheel before getting your hair colored. Put lighter colors above the darker ones and avoid color takeover. It’s a great way to get pops of colour for the festive new year!
Things to remember while getting your hair colored
As mentioned, box dyes often contain ingredients that can damage the scalp. The ratio of pigment to protective ingredients is higher in box dyes, which can be dangerous. People commonly experience scalp problems and inflammation after using dyes bought off the drugstore. However, dyes formulated at acclaimed salons come with extra elements and procedures to help protect the scalp.
