With warmer temperatures creeping around the corner, you might be itching for a change. If a new cut or protective style isn’t what you’re looking for you might want to consider coloring your natural hair. Color is a great way to refresh any hair style and can help you fall in love with your hair again. If you want to experiment with color without committing to anything permanent, hair color wax is definitely something you should try.
Hair color wax is a semi permanent method of coloring your hair that does not cause any damage and can be washed out at any time. Color wax can be found in a range of colors such as hot pink and deep blue and can be changed within a matter of days without harming your hair.
While most people will tell you that you should probably head to the salon for any kind of permanent color application, you can use color wax to color your natural hair at home. Application is very simple and almost foolproof: simply apply the color to washed and conditioned hair that is slightly damp. For a more intense color, allow hair to dry slightly and reapply to the areas you want to color. Next, style your hair as desired.
Color wax can be used as an all over color or as highlights. Some naturals have even created beautiful and creative ombre looks with color wax. While looking at your gorgeous new color you may be wondering if your color wax will transfer onto your clothes or furniture. The good news is that most transfer occurs when the wax is applied although there will be minimal transfer throughout wear.
Hair color wax is great if you love to switch up your look often without compromising the health of your hair. Hair wax offers versatility without commitment and allows you to try fun new colors. Will you be trying hair color wax this Spring?
