Why This dramatic color correction on long hair took two years

Earlier this year, I went through the emotional Space Mountain that contained me with a horrendous, undesirable hair coloring result and subsequent seriously excellent color correction, which was later achieved by a reputable professional in just a few hours. But it was more or less a miracle; Depending on the starting point and goal, not all corrections – or should – happen in one day, and colorist Hannah Edelman recently shared an example of why it is worth waiting.

"BEFORE SAVE IT FOR INSPO, please, Jasmin has been my client this year, comes 3-4 times a year and cumulatively spent $ 1000s," wrote Edelman in one of the captions of the latest photos she posted by her client, Jasmin, whose hair is really inspiring. Her thick waist length waves are all their own – no extensions – and the incredible surroundings are things of prominent dreams. But the amount of hair Jasmin has, her naturally almost black color, and the fact that this started as – stick yourself – a box color correction contributed everyone to the long journey.

"Jasmin had many layers of black, brown and red box paint on all different brands. Because she has so much hair, it was applied unevenly," says Edelman attract, explains that most people who color their own long hair do not realize a box is not enough. "There were areas of warm brown, some reddish stains, dark bands, brighter brown bands and then her natural black hair at the root."

From there, Jasmin would initially have a modest brunette, but, "Soon after, the blonde bug and we have gone easier ever since," says Edelman. But everything that looks like the blonde was still a way away – and that's a good thing. "Whenever it's so intense of a color story as she's all bets off, I explained that your hair could shine, or it could turn out to be orange or it could do absolutely nothing." And at the beginning, in November 2016 it raised to "a million shades of red, brown and orange."

Jasmin visited Edelman one month later for another round, and the photos she published on Instagram reveal a beautiful medium brown with significantly less red. "Jasmin has boxed colored hair black, red and brown" 7 or 8 times "and has rough, straight hair in level 2. In other words, very hard to lift! If you have the box dyed your hair, prepare to stay a little form of brunette for a while, "wrote Edelman in the caption. "I'm sure there are dyes out there that will take a more aggressive approach, but it's not me."

Next time Edelman wrote about Jasmine's hair in May 2017, blond started finally putting back her wonderful head. "This is Jasmine's hair after drastically draining it," she wrote in Instagram caption. "This is our third session, working through layers of brown, red and black box color. Her hair goes unheardly every time and I would always have to tone her down, so getting some kind of blonde is the cause of the celebration!"

Edelman tells attract that for the first meetings she did full painting using the balayage technique, but then switched to foils and coloring Jasmine tones, which led us to 2018.

"As time goes on, her color is getting colder in tone and lighter," says Edelman attract. "It's a smoother and more perfect blend every time. Now her maintenance is relatively simple – usually foil, a partial highlight that takes care of the hair in the chronicle. It's essentially a veil of brightness. In six months or so, I'm will go through and foil all her hair. "

Unfortunately, patience has been decided, because Jasmine's hair looks incredible, and it's still in good condition – a lesson for anyone who is looking to make a big change to long box-colored hair. "Hair is a porous, sensitive material. Still harmless things like air, water, sunshine will affect the hair. It's obvious that bad products, heat styling and staining will endanger your hair," says Edelman. "If you connect these harmful things to seven For ten years, the approximate age of bum length ends – you can see why long hair simply is not robust enough for aggressive dyeing. If you press the chemical envelope just a little bit too much, you can be for years growing before it's back to what it was like. "
