"Healthy" is an arbitrary term and while there is no general consensus on what the "healthiest" hair color is, there are
a few principles that can help you determine what is right for you.
First and foremost, be picky about who you allow to color your hair! Even the safest product on the market can give
unintended or unwanted results if used by an overly-aggressive or poorly educated hair professional. Ask
questions! A truly competent beauty professional should be able to answer basic questions correctly and/or have a
resource within the salon (I.E. Artistic director) that knows how hair color will affect your specific hair type on a
physical and chemical level. DO NOT be afraid to walk away if you are not comfortable prior to the service
beginning or if you sense your stylist is apprehensive or scared.
Secondly, there are products available to prepare your hair prior to a color service that will equalize porosity and
offset the transformation of cystine to cysteic acid during the chemical process (thus creating breakage). We
recommend the Zerran APS system but there are other ones on the market as well. Salons that care about your
final result will invest in this dynamic technology to ensure that you have a damage-free and long-lasting result. Your
beauty professional should be able to explain each additive and what its purpose is.
Finally, in my opinion the "healthiest" color is using the least invasive method in order to achieve a desired result. In
order to do this a proper pre-color scalp and hair examination will indicate to a beauty professional the current
condition of the hair fiber and allow them to diagnose the best way to achieve your goals.
As in everything, there is simply no substitute of expertise and competence.
