Radical highlighting is the coloring of the hair roots grown after the preceding highlighting. This hairstyle is adjusted depending on the speed of growth of curls in 2-6 months after the initial highlighting, as they grow from half a centimeter to one centimeter per month.
Features of highlighting the hair roots
Partial coloring in question has a number of features that are distinctive from other types of painting. Here they are:
The paint is applied only to the hair roots.
Highlighting on regrown roots is the most gentle, since the area of application of chemicals is minimal.
California or gradient highlighting for a long time does not need tint - about six months.
Highlighting on regrown roots, as well as usual, starts from the back of the head.
If your highlighting is done by a master at a barbershop, the right decision is to go there again. After all, the technique for performing root highlighting should remain the same as with full highlighting.In addition, a hairdresser who knows the characteristics of your hair, just navigate to the necessary measures to correct the color of the roots.
The complexity of the considered type of painting: when applying the solution, it is impossible to go beyond the boundary between different colors, otherwise chemical burns, loss or damage may occur.
Despite the ease of harmful effects during the procedure of highlighting the hair roots, be sure to regularly feed the curls. This can be done with the help of special cosmetics (balms, masks, special purpose shampoos).
Highlighting the hair roots makes the overall look of the hair fresh. It also helps in the transition to a different color of hair.
Radical highlighting makes the hair look visually freshly colored, and it takes much less time and resources.
In the practice of hairdressing, it is customary to distinguish hair color according to the level of depth of tone (UGT is abbreviated), where UGT 1 designates the darkest color - black, two - it is black, three - brown, dark, four - just brown, five - light brown , seven - blond, eight - blond blond, nine - very blond blond, a dozen denotes the lightest hair tone.Note that a weak brightener will “lift” the hair color by 1-2 tones, and this applies only to non-dark shades of the initial material.
In contrast to the full-color (full) coloring, basal color change is difficult to maintain in a first-class condition, so this task is not always easily accomplished at home.
When, why and what you need to do basal highlighting
To help answer the question “When is it time to make a correction of regrown roots?” Will help your girlfriend or a mirror. If you see that the hairstyle has ceased to shine naturally, the regrown roots are visible and this is striking and looks untidy and dirty, then an update is required. This procedure is required to:
Create a contrast between strands of different colors.
As your hair grows, create a refreshing effect on your look.
Always shine a unique shade of hair.
Make adjustments to the style at least every week.
Change hair color quickly and "with minimal loss" (with reduced harm to the hair).
Now a little about the compositions, with the help of which they make the procedure of such highlighting:
Powder for discoloration.It is used in cases when you need strong bleaching of hair roots. To prevent yellowness on the burned parts of the curls, toning is performed. The composition of the clarifier is prepared on the basis of the following proportion: one and a half part of the oxidizer per one part of the powder. For thick, thick, dark hair, take more oxidant.
Special Blonde Such dyes will need brunettes, brown-haired women with a dark shade of natural hair. Since the substances from this group are used for non-previously colored hair, they are suitable for radical staining. The ingredients are mixed in a ratio of one to two, that is, one part of a nine percent oxidizer (maximum of twelve percent) and two parts of a lightening blond.
Gentle colorants. Suitable for simple, shallow staining of the roots - a couple of tones, to create a glare effect, halftones of the transition from unpainted grown roots to the previously painted ones. Interfere with it with an oxidizing liquid in equal shares - one to one.
To perform tinting the roots of your streaked or fully colored hair, you need:
select the desired tone of paint, and it is better to remember which color was used for the initial highlighting (the tolerance from the previous color is one or two tones);
Do not wash your hair immediately before starting the process;
prepare the foil (buy the cut strips in the store or cut the usual food foil paper used for baking);
prepare a convenient brush, spicule, gloves, paint solution;
determine how to select the strands for highlighting, how far apart they are - painting step (if there was no highlighting before, choose narrow strands with wide highlighting step);
divide all the hair into 5-7 large parts in order to fasten each one alternately with hairpins and choose strands previously strewn; stab the strands twisted with flagella so that they do not interfere;
to separate, starting from the back of the head, the part of the hair, the roots of which need tinting;
take a strip of foil, holding it horizontally;
prepare the first curl for coloring;
put on the foil a bit of hair and evenly dye them, while trying not to go to the “border of color”;
with light, neat movements, dialing a small amount of colorant, apply the solution to the overgrown roots;
wrap the foil on the sides or put another piece on top and clamp it; only colored roots are to be wrapped;
do the same procedure all over the head, moving from the back of the head to the forehead and moving at the end to the temporal parts.
And you know that sebum (sebum), located at the roots of the hair, performs a protective function?
After processing all the roots, you need to make sure that each curl is wrapped separately and the paint does not penetrate the adjacent hair, the foil should be fixed. For a smooth transition, they use the following technique: they paint over a couple of curls next to the rest, previously painted.
After aging from fifteen to forty minutes (depending on the desired degree of color), rinse thoroughly with hair. By the way, you can "spy" how the coloring goes in the middle of the procedure, if you are not sure of the time that you need. Apply a mask (vitamin, nutritious, for colored hair) and after waiting for the right time indicated on the package, wash your head again.
Read about the small secrets, they will help you look 100% full, even if you make highlights for the first time:
The border between the two colors on the hair for hedging make the so-called tie. To do this, take in the foil and a few hairs from the unpainted area.
From the scalp to the very end, it is necessary to dye two to three thin, barely noticeable locks that partially cover the unpainted ones. This will mask the uneven application of the clarifier.
The lower the percentage of oxidizer, the longer the delay time (exposure) of dye on the hair is made. This gives a lightening for a couple of tones. The rule for fair women is valid, and 2% oxidizer will not take chestnut and darker girls.
Non-ammonia powders, which are suitable for quick and high-quality clarification of regrown roots, are commercially available.
A simple calculation of the length of the pieces of foil for tinting (highlighting) the roots: measure the length of the regrown pieces (say, 4-5 cm), multiply by 2 (8-10 cm), add another couple of centimeters (10-12 cm). It turns out the length of the foil for wrapping colored areas in this case is from ten to twelve centimeters.Another option: take two foils of 5-6 cm, but the first method is more convenient.
To control the painting of just the right hair between them, lay cotton pads or pieces of cotton so as not to stain the neighboring areas.
The back of the head and the temples are tender, so the highlighting of the roots in these areas is different from the rest of the hair. Be careful when painting the hair in these areas, because there brightener grab faster because of the subtle curls.
The warmer the roots, the more intense the color becomes. Before heating the painted roots, make sure that you have a staining solution that can be heated. Such heating can not be done with a hairdryer and similar devices, only with infrared radiation. In beauty salons, climases are used for these purposes.
If you choose a long strand, the roots of which you want to polish, the earlier will be burned out.
To avoid yellowing of the burned-out roots, take an oxidizing agent with a lower percentage: it is better not to paint over, than to think up later how to remove yellowness. Instead of effective strong clarification, choose a small percentage, as already mentioned above, but keep longer.
For dark curls, correction is required more often than fair-haired girls.
If you did not do the staining and highlighting sessions yourself, but with your favorite master hairdresser, you should not change this “tradition”.
It makes no sense to start the correction of the color of the hair roots, if less than two and a half centimeters have grown.
Once any woman of fashion comes a moment when it is no longer possible to carry out the “repair” of unpainted grown roots, as the boundaries of the transitions become apparent and shift. In this case, complete staining should be done anew.
To remove the ridiculous transitions from one color to another, hiding errors, getting rid of yellowness after finishing work with the roots, perform a tint. It eliminates the natural and chemical colors and merges into one composition.
If you are temporarily unable to go to the salon or do the tinting of the roots, buy a special brightening spray. The principle of operation is simple: liquid is sprayed onto the curls when pressed (like a lacquer or hair spray with a spray bottle). The advantages of this method are that gentle spraying looks more natural than coarse coloring by a brush. Flick three or four times using the tool every day to get the desired result after five approaches.
