Q: What method of DIY hair colouring at home is the safest? How can one achieve a salon-quality look at the home?
A: Hair colouring is an art and one really devotes time to achieving perfection in mastering it. I would personally recommend you to visit a salon for hair colour and let the experts do their job.
Q: Is the only way to achieve the ideal colour for hair dye bleaching?
A: Not at all! You do not have to bleach your hair to achieve the desired hair colour. Professional brands like Schwarzkopf Professional are working on curating colour formulations that do not harm your hair while protecting the roots. The latest revamp of the hair colour range by Schwarzkopf Professional addresses this very concern, offering an incredible formulation curated for all kinds of hair. Igora Royal assures stunning performance and 100 per cent reliability. All the shades are perfectly inter-mixable, so it’s easy to work with Dual Application Techniques for a true colour match across the different Igora ranges without damaging the hair. Most colours are integrated with fiber bond technology that minimises breakage.
Q: What hair colouring product do you prefer to use?
A: As an artist, I am not in a position to compromise with clients who invest their faith in me. I only believe in using the best to deliver the best. The latest hair colour range — Igora Royal by Schwarzkopf Professional is my holy grail these days. The formulation is great, the packaging is sustainable and it guarantees protection to virgin hair.
