What type of hair do I have?

Your hair type will dictate how your hair responds to colouring. For each type of hair, there are different techniques to use, to create strength of colour. Have a look at this guide to help you colour your hair successfully.

How to dye coloured hair:

Coloured hair has already been processed or possibly damaged and this may affect the results of further colour treatments. Definitely take this into consideration and perform a strand test before carrying out Smart Beauty hair colour.

How to dye fine hair:

Fine hair is not necessarily thin hair, it is simply a way of describing the character of your hair, fine hair is often silky and smooth and generally hard to style and hold volume. When coloring, a shorter development time may be needed, but always go by your personal strand test development time for best results.

How to dye normal hair:

Generally, normal hair is considered to be easy to style and is neither too thick or thin in texture, it will sometime have a natural wave. When coloring, an average development time may be needed, but always go by your personal strand test development time for best results.

How to dye thick hair:

Thick hair is very coarse in texture and the owner of such a thick head of hair will generally have a lot of it. When coloring, a longer development time may be needed, but always go by your personal strand test development time for best results.

How to dye caucasian hair:

This tends to be finer than other hair types. When coloring, an average development time may be needed, according to the results of your strand test. The palest shades of blonde are usually achievable.

How to dye Asian hair:

This tends to be thicker than Caucasian hair. When coloring, a longer development time may be needed, according to the results of your strand test. Black hair will not be able to be processed to the palest shades of blonde, although deeper shades of blonde are achievable.

How to dye Afro hair:

This tends to be thicker than Caucasian hair with a strong wave or tight curl. When coloring, a longer development time may be needed, according to the results of your strand test. Black hair will not be able to be processed to the palest shades of blonde, although deeper shades of blonde are achievable. Be sure to check that Afro hair can withstand the processing of hair colour by performing a strand test. Although Afro hair may appear strong, it is often even weaker than other hair types and is prone to breakage and dryness.

Permed/relaxed hair:

Permed or chemically relaxed hair will probably already be damaged and this may affect the results of further colour treatments. Take this into consideration and perform a strand test before carrying out Smart Beauty hair colour. Wait at least 2 weeks after treatments or perming or relaxing before colouring the hair.
