The structure of women’s hair is worsened for the last fifty years, as specialists state. Yet, the innovative approaches used to dye hair and improve the structure, are more attractive. One of these approaches is hair highlighting with Elumen means.

History of the product

Hair dying as the hairdresser’s procedure was widely introduced to public in the end of 19th century making a lock of grey hair in the hairdo, so much popular that time. When a brunette found it too hard to have a lock of hair of silver shade, she used to apply some powder of the corresponding color to tone hair which clogged pores and made hair dirty. In the 30s of the 20th century the trend for a platinum blonde was stably exploited and women rushed to use hydrogen peroxide as the substance to have the desired color hair, which caused too much harm to hair. Three hair care products were introduced in 50s of the 20th century which was the hard time to care after hair. Anyway, the products were available to have hair dyed at home achieving all-possible shades. In the 21st century the technologies improved and the progress in the hairdressing industry was prominent, either. The hair care products with dying agents were invented to allow hair safe and not damaged when changing the color drastically. Hair highlighting with Elumen is the first procedure which dyes and nourishes the hair structure at the same time.

What is hair highlighting?

Hair highlighting with Elumen is the persistent dying with the special dying agent called Elumen. The Japanese concern invented the patented formula in 1997 by the order of GOLDWELL Company. The innovative approach the Elumen provided is that it was designed specially for the European type and structure of hair.

The active substance of this preparation is the following when due to the acid environment the microscopic negative molecules are attracted as the physics law states to positive molecules. This allows the possibility to absorb the dye pigments into the hair structure without damaging it and not opening the shell of it. As a result, the surface is covered with the ion film smoothing all the сглаживая rough edges. This dying agent is unique since it does not damage the hair structure as other dyes do kicking out the natural pigment ad leaving huge holes on the hair surface. The Elumen pigment penetrates the hair deeply inside, nourishing and strengthening it, instead. In view of that, the professional remedies used in beauty salons proved the name and purpose. Hair dying with Elumen is the best dying procedure when hair toning is the activity of other dying agents, including those based on ammonium.

The hair dying procedure takes one to one and a half hours in the beauty salon. Hair is defatted before applying dying agent. Then the special preparation is applied that evens the color of hair and after that the special dye is done to hair for thirty minutes. After the hair is washed with special fixing hair conditioner with the stabilizer to keep the color and balm to make hair smoother and softer. All the hair care products should be professional and of high quality assigned for hair highlighting with Elumen and thus, look for the label.

Hair is styled easily, look neat and well-cared, it shines and the color is rich for longer time. For the last ten years the Company elaborated the unique palette of colors and shades which allow using fancy accents to have special hair color. An additionally the volume is added to hair. The active component of the product is the dying agent of the new generation without the hydrogen peroxide. The dye has the accumulative geature when the longer it is used, the more expressed is the effect.

Elumen drawbacks

The drawbacks include the necessity to use the special shampoo and hair conditioner with Elumen effect (effect is not stable if not used). ladies with thick and greasy hair are recommended to avoid using this procedure since dying is done from the hair root to ends but not as with ammonium dye when only roots are dyed.

The high pricing for hair highlighting in the beauty salon is the drawback, either. So, it isavailable for about $100-250 US dollars for long hair and about #50 USD for short hair.

The frequency with which you have your hair highlighted depends on the hair growth, that is once in two months as specialists recommend.

Hair highlighting at home is extremely not recommended since all the technique of substance application requires special additional skills where the masters are taught at special course. It is the procedure done by professionals and the rule should be followed rather than broken.
