Ethnic Color

 –  The search for the perfect hair color is filled with many choices, including temporary, permanent, highlighting, touchup, and conditioning styles. Ethnic hair care products include specialized formulas that are designed for textured, curly, or coarse hair types, featuring lower water content and requiring gentle handling during the dyeing process. If you have ethnic hair, it's important to select a product that has been formulated specifically for your hair type.

Choosing Ethnic Hair Care Products

To achieve the best results when you color your hair, you should look for products geared toward your particular hair texture rather than selecting a product because it is labeled for your ethnicity. Read the product description and make sure that the formula is right for your hair. Doing so provides you with a formula that is going to deliver the type of hair care that you need by offering appropriate conditioning or moisturizing capabilities along with the coloring process.

Ethnic Hair Care for Women

With so many options available, how do you know what to pick? The most important task that you have is to choose a hair care product that has been designed specifically for your hair's texture. If you aren't quite sure what color you want, you might consider using a temporary or semi permanent color. Each of these formulas allows you to try something new without making a long commitment to it. With temporary (rinse) formulas, you can rinse the product out in a single washing in most cases. Semi permanent color formulas generally last a little longer, taking approximately 8 to 20 washings, depending on the brand. Permanent color is a great choice if you know exactly which shade you would like to use, and you are content to keep that color until it grows out or enough time has passed to allow you to color it again.

Ethnic Hair Care for Men

Although the availability of hair care products for men is not quite as abundant as it is for women's formulas, quite a few options do exist, including shampoo-in hair color for a temporary change, semi permanent color that lasts a week or two, permanent color that stays in until it grows out, and color for the mustache and beard. As is the case for women, men choosing ethnic hair care products should look for formulas that are tailored for their specific hair texture and issues. While other products will still transform your natural color to your new shade, it is likely that some damage (drying, breaking, or weakening of the hair shaft) might occur.

Should You Relax and Color?

As you probably know, many hair stylists will recommend that you allow several weeks in between coloring and relaxing your hair. This is one of the reasons that hair care products that do both at the same time are becoming so popular. Before choosing this type of formula, it is important to ensure that it has been formulated for your specific concerns, including the texture, coarseness, or curliness of your tresses.
