Colored hair has been a growing trend in 2015 for both ladies and gents. This trend has inspired youtube Gurus, Tumblr fanatics and DIY bloggers to skip out on salons and do it themselves. I personally have been experimenting with colors for about 6 years ranging from blonde to blue, pinks to auburn, and back to black. Obtaining these various colors can be a tricky process and very dangerous to the hair follicles so #checkmycloset has a few tips to help keep your hair sprouting. Before Dying your hair any color it is important to know the products that you are using and their purpose.
Developer is the oxidizing agent that allows the haircolor to do its job. Most permanent haircolor today uses hydrogen peroxide as a developer. The peroxide opens the cuticle so that the color can penetrate.
10 Volume Peroxide is a standard oxidizing strength for permanent, no-lift haircolor. Designed for use when you simply want to add a tint or color tone to hair of the same lightness level, 10 Volume Peroxide opens the cuticle layer of the hair allowing the color molecules to penetrate and color to be deposited in the cortex.
20 Volume Peroxide is also a common strength with permanent haircolor and opens the hair cuticle like 10 Volume, but also offers lifting of the hair's level by 1-to-2 levels. 20 Volume Peroxide is used to best effect when the hairs starting level is no more than one shade darker than the color you are trying to achieve.
30 Volume Peroxide works just like 20 Volume except that it will lift the hair's starting color by 2-to-3 levels and works best when the target color is no more than two levels lighter than the starting color. It's important to remember that the stronger the developer is, the harsher it can be on your hair. You should always use a moisturizing conditioner after applying a stronger haircolor.
LIke any product the longer you allow the product to stay in your hair, the more of an effect it will have. Some hair textures are more receptive to bleach and and some hairs simply reject the strong chemicals. If you are doing this yourself be very conscious of the kind of hair you have. After dying your hair you should check out #Checkmycloset moisturizing post. We share some of our favorite revitalizing serums.
Bleach comes in powder form and hydrogen peroxide is added to activate the lightening process. When mixing the two create a consistent thick texture. If the consistency is to thick add more developer, If too runny do the opposite and apply more bleaching powder. If bleach is mixed to a thick consistency it tends to dry out faster and not be as effective.

To me theres no limits when it comes to fashion. Fashion is any form of art that can be worn on the body, thought up by the mind or created by the eye. Here I allow my many alter egos to Roam freely providing diverse aspects of fashion.
