Thinking of going red? Rick Wellman shares tips for finding your perfect match with Daily Makeover.
Rick Wellman hears this question a lot, but he recommends against it.
“Your hair below naturally doesn’t see as much sun as the hair on your head,” he explains. “So you should expect it to be a couple of shades darker.” Additionally, says Rick, it has a much different texture and, for obvious reasons, the skin around it is much more sensitive to the kind of coloring your scalp may be used to. “I’ve had clients at the end of a coloring ask me if they could sneak off to the bathroom with whatever color there might be left over. And simply from a safety perspective, that’s just a bad idea.”
If you insist on a more monochromatic look, Rick recommends using products specifically suited for changing color down under. Betty™ Color offers a variety of buffered colors that have added emollients and anti-inflammatory ingredients to protect sensitive skin. The key is to keep the chemical off the skin and, above all, to follow instructions.
