Hair Colouring Myths and Facts

Hair colour has the power to transform your look and boost your confidence. However, with the abundance of information available, it's easy to fall victim to common hair colour myths. We have asked our team of experts to separate fact from fiction and debunk some of the most prevalent misconceptions surrounding hair colour.

Myth 1 : Hair Colouring Always Damages Your Hair 

Whilst it is true that some hair colouring processes can cause damage, modern hair colouring techniques and products have come a long way. Thanks to Josh Wood Colour, at home colour is now equipped with advanced formulas that are gentler on the hair, causing minimal damage when applied correctly. 

To protect your hair from damage try our Miracle System, professionally designed to cover your greys, whilst treating and protecting your hair from damage. The Miracle System has been clinically proven to deliver stronger, shinier, healthier hair with each colour. 

Additionally, maintaining a proper hair care routine that includes regular deep conditioning using the Miracle Mask and using Josh Wood Colour colour-safe Shampoo and Conditioning products can help minimize any potential damage.

Myth 2: You Can't Colour Your Hair If It's Already Damaged

Contrary to popular belief, damaged hair can still be coloured. However, it's crucial to consult with a professional colourist who can assess the condition of your hair and determine the best course of action. With the right approach and proper care, you can achieve gorgeous colour even on damaged hair.

For those at home without the need for grey coverage, try opting for our Semi-Permanent Glosses. Specially formulated to improve not only the colour but the condition of your hair.

Myth 3 : Home Hair Colouring Products Are Not as Effective as Salon Colouring

Whilst many prefer to go to a professional colourist, it is easy to achieve salon like results from the comfort of your own home.

By booking a video consultation with us, not only can you speak directly with an expert with years of experience in the game, but they can also customize the colour to suit your skin tone and desired outcome to ensure you achieve the best possible professional results at home.

Myth 4: You Must Bleach Your Hair to Achieve Lighter Shades

Bleaching is not always necessary to achieve lighter shades. Depending on your hair's natural colour and the desired outcome, you are also able to lift your colour up to one shade with our permanent colour. However, it is important to note that Josh Wood Colour is not transformative in nature so for a dramatic change i.e brown to blonde we would always recommend visiting a salon.
