Hair Color

What’s your home hair coloring IQ?

by Bionic Beauty on 30.May.2010 · 14 comments

In preparation for my upcoming 4-part article series on at-home hair color, I thought we’d start with this quiz from Total Beauty. It basically asks you questions to “test” your knowledge about coloring your hair at home.

There are a few nebulous questions, such as how soon you can color after a perm or other chemical process. I would agree that you should always err on the side of caution, especially if you inexperienced with coloring your hair; however, the time frames given could be too long in my opinion, for someone who has many years of experience. In any case, the quiz did it’s job. I didn’t pay too much attention to the brands they recommended since it’s “sponsored” content, but like I said, it helps you understand your at-home hair color “IQ”.

Bionic Asks: Do you color your hair?

Bionic Beauty Asks - Makeup and beauty question blog article series

This week’s Bionic Asks Do you color your hair?
Whether it’s at home, or at the salon, hair color is one of those beauty rituals that many women indulge in. Some of us do it for the range of colors, others to cover grays, and some just for highlights to add dimension; or any combo of the above. I guess I color mine for all three of those reasons… plus, I get bored with my hair color very easily.

So, do you color your hair? At home, at the salon, with a stylist friend? Do you even change colors with the seasons or your moods?

The Bionic Beauty blog's Best of 2009 beauty awardsIt’s always interesting, and sometimes quite surprising, which articles become popular. And it’s not always the initial subject that makes the article “popular” but in many cases the comments section has taken on a life of its own! Fellow Bionic Beauties making their own suggestions, sharing tips, asking questions. That spontaneous conversation is one of my favorite aspects of blogging… even if we get a bit off topic.
