Coloring Fine Hair - Color & Processes - iVillage Beauty Hair and Nail Salon

It's best not to try to change your color by more than two shades -- fine hair is particularly susceptible to damage, so you could end up with a lot of breakage and split ends. Semipermanent color, temporary color and high lighting are better choices than permanent color. But because permanent and semipermanent colors rough up the cuticle, you'll get a bonus: Your hair will probably appear thicker after coloring. If you do it yourself, keep in mind that fine hair tends to absorb dyes fairly quickly, so always do a strand test to get the timing right.
