Color Corrections are Common
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.
Removing and Filling
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 Long Does it Take to Color Correct Hair?
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.
It Takes Multiple Sessions
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.
