The truth is, there are more services every year, they are more alike than different, and each new service has its turn in the sun as the hottest new hair trend. Today, we cover babylights.Read More
Color Correction Can Mean Many Things
You likely associate color corrections with color catastrophes. However, color corrections aren’t just emergencies. Color correction commonly means taking your color two or more levels either lighter or darker. That’s it. Let’s talk more about what this service is, cost, options, and best products for color treated hair.
One Common Color Correction Story
Hair color emergencies are unfortunately common. You’ve heard the horror stories and maybe lived through one or two. One familiar story is a daughter wanting blonde hair, dad buying box color off the shelf, and an awful ending that includes green hair and a dad in a panic. Another common one is chlorine damage.
Other Common Correction Cases
You heard about box color, but brass blondes, black brunettes, and over-processing often need a fix too. Furthermore, some color corrections are easier than others.
Your Window for Hair Repair is Brief
Color takes two to four days to set in your cuticle. If you encounter an emergency, talk to a stylist immediately. Move quick, and the possibility of a full recovery/reversal is likely.
About the Color Correction Process
When we lighten your hair with balayage, full highlights, or another service, color-remover is used to remove pigment from your strands. Consequently, color-remover strips protein and other essential properties required for healthy hair. We need to “fill” your stripped hair. The complexity of the correction process depends on how much damage needs filling.
How Much Does This Service Cost?
The time required to color-correct hair is difficult to estimate without consultation. For complicated corrections, be wary when anyone promises overnight recovery.
It May Take Time to Recover
Often the recommended route is multiple sessions. The downside of multiple sessions is you won’t leave the salon with perfect hair the same day. The upside is you will leave with hair on your head left to save.
How Long Does This Service Take?
Critical, irreversible damage happens when attempting too much color correction in one session. Color-remover or lightener strips essential structural properties of your hair. At that point, your only solution is a short haircut.
Calculating Time and Cost
Time and cost for color corrections are impossible to estimate without a consultation. Again, to save time, do not wait and talk to a stylist immediately.
