Hair Dye Damage

Q: Id like to color my hair, but I am concerned about using a hair dye that would damage my hair. My hair tends to fall a lot and I have some frizz as a result. My natural color is black, and my hair is thick. I would like it to be chocolate brown. What do you suggest as a good hair dye?
 
back view of long dark straight hair A: Well, since you plan to go from black to a lighter shade, you have to look for a hair color that will provide some lift of the hairs natural light level. The specific brand is up to you, but you need to make sure you check the packaging completely to see what the starting color is for the color they show on the box. (These images are found on the back of the packaging usually.) You cannot use a deposit only color since that will not make the hair any lighter.
 
      You may want to visit your local beauty supply store and look at swatches on the shelf to find the color you want. Then be aware that you need to use a developer of sufficient strength to lighten the hair enough to make the new color visible (probably a 30-volume developer).
 
      You will have to have a color kit (or separate color and developer) that offers lift. Because of this, demi-permanent and semi-permanent colors are NOT appropriate.
 
      I do encourage you to try to be honest about the condition your hair is in. If you have any reservations about the condition of your hair, strongly consider visiting the salon for this color service. Often, much of the damage done by haircolor services is due to a lack of knowledge and experience.
