I decided to add purple highlights to my hair on my second visit to Naoki Yoshihara by Ash. I tried purple highlights earlier this year when I was holidaying in Taipei and I was yearning to recreate the look once again.
One of the easiest ways to change your look is to add highlights to your hair. Not only is it less damaging than changing your base colour, it also adds interest and dimension to your hairstyle. What I like most about highlights is that you can experiment with bolder hues without compromising on professionalism and style.
Amazingly, Naoki Yoshihara by Ash did not use bleach to achieve the purple highlights I desired. The dye was ammonia-free too, which is impressive as most salons require the use of bleach or hair dyes with ammonia to achieve striking, vibrant colours.
The problem with having ammonia in hairdyes is that it is actually really harmful to your hair. Ammonia has adverse effects on a protein called Tyrosine which is found in hair shafts and Tyrosine produces the melanin pigments in your hair. Ammonia damages Tyrosine, which greatly affects your hair's ability to absorb colour.
If you realize that your hair colour seems to fade quickly, perhaps it is time to switch to ammonia-free hair dyes for longer lasting hair colour and stronger, healthier hair!
I love the trendier and fashion forward vibes that the contrasting purple highlights lend to my overall appearance. It also gives my hair more movement and makes my hair look more voluminous than before.
