The ability to change your appearance, experiment, eliminate flaws, give a zest to the image - these are the main advantages for which the fair sex loves ordinary and professional hair dyes so much. Photos of hairdressing experiments confirm this: due to a change in color, you can radically change and even visually “throw off” several years.
Today, the shelves of hair products stores are literally littered with cosmetics for coloring, so it is sometimes quite difficult for customers to decide which product to give preference to - regular or professional. Recently, however, more and more women are leaning towards the choice of the latter type of paint. In no small way, such a step is influenced by the qualities that professional paints have, the rating and positive reviews about these products.
The difference between professional paint and regular paint
The principle of action is the main difference between professional cosmetics for hair coloring and ordinary ones. This kind of paint is hard enoughpick up without certain knowledge and skills, mix and apply - only a master stylist can do this. That is why such products are called professional.
Professional hair dye colors are missing on almost every package. This is due to the fact that the manufacturer does not guarantee the same result on strands of different colors, textures and types. To achieve the desired result, the hairdresser uses only his skills in the field of coloring. Each end case is individual, but guaranteed.
Another difference between professional coloring cosmetics is high durability and the absence of an oxidizing agent in the kit. Home use products are equipped with an oxidizing agent that is most suitable for all options, the strength of which is at least 12%. When using a professional product, the master focuses specifically on your type of hair, for which, perhaps, even a concentration of 9% may be too heavy. For example, Loreal professional hair dye is considered safer than regular hair dye of the same brand.
To choose the right coloring agent and oxidizing agent, a direct consultation in a beauty salon or a qualified seller of this cosmetics will help.
Professional paint benefits
Despite the fact that inconventional products are favored by such factors as easy availability, low price and ease of use, special cosmetics have their advantages over them:
- Professional hair dye colors are more accurate.
- Shades can be mixed with each other or refreshed by adding special products - the so-called mixtons.

- Professional paints are sold exclusively in specialized departments, distributors or beauty salons, which guarantees the quality of the product.
- The coloring process is difficult only for those who do not know the nuances of mixing and applying the product.
- Minimum hair injury due to individual selection of the required amount and concentration of the oxidizing agent, even for separate areas on the same head.
- If an error occurs, the color can be removed with a special "wash".
