Buying Guide for Must-Have Sandals (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdress

Looking to shift into summer mode? Go shopping for a pair of playful sandals! They bring to mind warm weather, carefree days and great pedis! No shoe style is more flattering, freeing or more comfortable than a beautifully crafted pair of sandals.

Peak sandal wearing season begins in the spring and can last well into fall. Sandals can be worn with leggings, tights or socks (if you dare!) even during cold weather months. Take advantage of the extra long sandal season by studying up on the endless available styles, such as earthy leather flats, wooden wedges and sexy evening versions.

Platforms

crossdress

 

There are many incarnations of the platform sandal, but I’m referring to a specific style—just like the pair you had in high school in 70s. Yep, platform sandals. They’re back and just as cute as ever.

You’ll find platform sandal soles made from everything from hard plastic to wood to cork. Obviously cork will cushion your feet and absorb shock much better than rigid materials. If you spend a great deal on your feet or walking, opt for a cork, rubber or flexible plastic sole.

Heel height is not really a concern with platform sandals. Some do feature a slight incline from the arch to the heel, but no more than a half-inch or so. Transgender Women that are used to wearing sky-high heels will be unfazed by the overall height of platform sandals. However, if you are accustomed to flats, the increase in elevation may take some getting used to.

Wedges

crossdress

Wedge sandals are related to the platform, however they differ dramatically in heel height. The infinite variety of wedge sandals makes shopping for them almost as much fun as wearing them crossdress.

Casual cookouts and pool parties are the perfect occasion for show off your new wedge sandals. Pair a bright summery color with a floral dress or ruffled tank and walking shorts. They also look great with a sexy swimsuit and pareo wrap. By all means, have fun with flirtatious wedge sandal styles for outdoor events.

A night out demands a dramatic pair of wedge sandals. Metallics, patents and snakeskin take your LBD to new heights. Wedge sandals also look perfect with a printed silk mini romper or skinny pants and a sheer Boho tunic. Don’t be afraid to walk on the wild side when clubbing in your wedge sandals!

Flats

crossdress

Wedge and platform sandals are all the rage, but let’s not forget the humble flat sandal.

Flat sandals are lightweight—wearing them is just like going barefoot. That’s probably a good reason to avoid them when dressing for a formal occasion. However, there are embellished flat sandals you might just consider pairing with an evening dress.

The lightness of these sandals are perfect for summer cross dresses, skirts, crop pants, Capris and shorts. In other words, they work with virtually everything associated with warm weather. They should be part of your fun summer wardrobe.

Flip Flops

crossdress

Flip flops are the most affordable choice in the sandals category.

Even basic rubber flip flops come in a rainbow of hues and feature embellishments from crystals, to beading to grosgrain ribbon. Flip flops are acceptable in almost any setting. However, many offices still frown upon them (except on casual Fridays), as do upscale restaurants and clubs.

The only bad rap I can think of regarding flip flops and slides is the sheer volume they produce. It seems when people wear them, they tend to walk with a heavier step than normal. When worn on uncarpeted surfaces, like tile or wood, one person sound like a herd of buffalo!

Strappy Heels

crossdress

No single sandal style can compliment so many different looks than a pair of strappy heels. Strappy heel sandals are the ultimate in dressing up. They show off your legs in a sexy cocktail dress, they add a touch of elegance to a wedding gown and they look downright righteous with a kickin’ mini. High heel strappy sandals even look good with a silk blazer and harem pants. They’re amazingly versatile.

Before you run out the door to buy a pair, it is critical to understand the fit of strappy heel sandals.
Make sure you purchase the proper length. It is important that your entire foot has a firm foundation. The straps should hold your foot in place (to prevent sliding), without cutting into or rubbing your sissy feet and toes.

Rubbing straps can be a problem with strappy heel sandals no matter how well they fit. Consider purchasing strap cushions when you purchase your sandals. These comfort strips adhere to the under side of straps to minimize chafing and irritation.

Low Heels

crossdress

Low heel sandals are for those of us who can’t quite maneuver in strappy heels.

Low heel sandals look ever so stylish and feminine while providing the utmost in comfort.. With a heel typically lower than 2-inches in height, low heel sandals are perfect for sissy women who don’t want or need extra height.

The good thing about low heel sandals is the infinite variety in styling. You can find ankle straps, wide toe and heel straps and ultra-feminine, thin strappy models. Their heel styles are just as varied. Choose from kitten, cone-shaped, block and wedge heels to name a few!

How To Walk Like A Woman For Crossdressers (Male to Female Transgender Crossdressing Tips)

crossdressing

Time to get that walk down ladies…walk with me….just like everything else in cross dressing your walk is going to take some practice to keep you from looking like a NFL Linebacker in stilettos. Good thing is practicing walking in heels is fun. The key is to not over do it like you are on the runway for Victoria’s Secret. Here are some tips to help you get the feminine walk down a little better.

Practice Walking In Your Heels

Travesti tips

Practice makes perfect right? So spend your entire day in heels ( If your feet can bare it). Do your daily household chores in your heels. One thing I love to do is dance in mine. If you can dance…you can walk, both take a bit of getting used to, and a little wine does not hurt to loosen you up.

 Relax…

travesti tips

Speaking of loosening up, you need to be relaxed, and not so stiff. Feminine movements will come a lot easier to you if you are not so tensed up. The stretches in THIS post and some of the stretches HERE are great for releasing tension in your body. Yoga is great for this too.

3. Head Up
Keep your head up high and look straight ahead

4. Keep Your Back Straight

travesti tips

Don’t be a slouch, keep good posture arch your back a bit but do not over do it either

5. Keep Your Elbows At Your Sides.
Do not swing your arms, Keep your elbows tucked in around your waist

6. Hips don’t lie

This step is very important NOT to over do. Sway your hips slightly with each step.

travesti tips

7. Smaller Steps
Keep in mind to take smaller steps. Step straight ahead.

8. Film Yourself Walking
I wish I could find my old VHS tape with me prancing around in 7 inch stripper heels, a mini skirt and my mothers wig on…actually…no I don’t…but this is a great way to study what you are doing right, and what you are doing wrong.

9. Confidence
Own it T-girl…you need to have confidence ( I can be your cheerleader)

travesti tips

10. Observe
Without being creepy, observe the way  transgender women walk. Head to the mall or the beach and study women’s movements

Your 7 Biggest Bra Problems – Solved (For Crossdressers and MTF Transgender Women)

sissy There’s no easier way to feel feminine than to slip into a beautiful bra. The problem is that most bras aren’t built with crossdressers and transgender women in mind. That can make it hard to find a bra that looks and fits right. However, it’s not impossible! In this post, I share how to solve your 6 biggest bra problems – so you and “your girls” can look their absolute best.

Problem #1: Wrinkled or gapping bra cups

Bra cups that don’t lay smooth are a common problem. Fortunately, there are two easy fixes:
  • Go down a cup size. The main reason for wrinkles is that your breasts don’t fill out the bra cups. Try going down a cup size. For example, from a 38B to a 38A.
  • Choose a demi bra instead of a full coverage bra. Full coverage bras often have extra space at the top of the cup. A demi bra that’s cut lower eliminates this problem.
crossdress

Problem #2: Can’t find a bra my size

If you don’t wear breast forms, it can be tricky to find a bra with a large band and small cups. (Which is what most crossdressers and transgender women need.) Here are some bra options for those with smaller breasts and broader body proportions:
  • Hips & Curves Lace Bralette – Size L-6X (One cup size fits all)
  • Flatter Me Bra – Band sizes 40-46, Cup sizes AA-B
  • Leading Lady Scallop Lace Bra – Band sizes 36-48, Cup sizes A-DD
  • Prima Donna Couture Bra – Band sizes 38-48, Cup sizes B-H
crossdress  

Problem #3: Back bulge

Back bulge is another common problem. The causes are back fat and/or an ill-fitting bra. How can you avoid the dreaded back bulge?
  • Wear a larger band size. A band that’s too tight will cause bulging, so go up a size. For example, from a size 42 to a size 44 band.
  • Look for a bra with give. Bras that are made with smooth, stretchy fabrics don’t dig in as much.
  • Try a longline bra. Longline bras have a wider band that helps eliminate back bulge.

Problem #4: Wide-set breasts

Crossdressers and transgender women tend to have wide-set breasts because of their wider rib cages. This makes it harder to 1.) Find a bra that fits properly and 2.) Create the look of cleavage. Here are four solutions for wide-set breasts:
  • Look for pushup pads. A bra with padding on the sides helps push the breasts together.
  • Wear a wireless bra. Underwires can be uncomfortable if they’re not properly centered beneath the breasts. In this case, a wireless bra will fit you better.
  • Choose a bra with a wide center panel. The wider the center panel (the triangle-shaped area between the bra cups), the better the bra will fit.
  • Find a front closure bra. Front closure tend to have wider-set cups due to the center clasp.
crossdress

Problem #5: Bra straps fall down

Nothing is more annoying than straps that don’t stay put. Here’s how to solve this problem:
  • Tighten the bra straps. Bra straps stretch out over time, so they should be tightened every other month or so.
  • Look for silicone bra straps. Some bras have a silicone lining on the straps that helps keep them in place. You can also purchase silicone bra strap cushions that can be worn with any bra.
  • Try a different bra style. Balconette and plunge bras tend to have wider straps that are prone to falling. Instead, look for a bra with a racerback or crisscross straps.

Problem #6: Breast forms don’t stay in place

crossdress If you wear breast forms, the right bra is critical. Here are five tips to keep in mind:
  • Option #1: Pocketed bra. Your best bet is a wear a pocketed bra with built-in pockets to hold the breast forms.
  • Option #2: Full coverage bra. Your other option is to wear a full coverage bra. The cups should fully cover the breast forms for a seamless look.
  • Make sure the bra band is snug enough. This provides support for the breast forms. To test, put a finger under the band between your breasts. If you can fit two or more fingers, the band is too loose. Tighten it or go down a band size.
  • Avoid low cut bras. Low cut bras don’t have enough coverage to support the breast forms.
  • Avoid bras that are too small. Bras that are too small can damage your breast forms.
crossdress

Problem #7: Bra shows through clothing

Just like visible panty lines, a bra that shows through your clothes isn’t chic. (Unless, of course, you purposely want to show it off.) Here’s how to keep your bra under cover:
  • Look for bras with smooth cups and minimal details. Lacy fabrics and trimmings are pretty, but they often show through lightweight fabrics.
  • Wear a black or nude bra. The black bra should be worn under dark clothing, while the nude bra works best with light colors. Look for a bra that matches your skin tone. Avoid white bras since these tend to show through.

How to Choose Breast Forms (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdress With the different kinds of breast enhancement for on the market it can be a complex decision when you set out to choose crossdresser breast forms.
There are so many considerations:
  • Size
  • Style
  • Material
  • Lifestyle
  • Budget
We have covered in previous articles the different materials breast forms can be made from, including home-made breast forms. We have also covered the subject of what size breast forms you should get and how you size yourself for breast forms and bras. crossdress Having read our other articles you now just need to make sure you choose the right breast forms to help maximize your male to female transformation. If you are conveniently located to a crossdresser store like Glamour Boutique in New Jersey then call and book an appointment to meet with a fitter experienced in working with crossdressers and transgender clients. If, like many girls you need to shop conveniently and discreetly online then make sure you use a reputable store with a clear returns policy. Having done your home-work you know what your budget is and you have correctly calculated your bra and breast form size. Make sure at the same time to consider your lifestyle. Are you an occasional crossdresser who dresses in doors and just wants a quick solution to give a more female shape? Are you someone soon to embark on transitioning and so are looking for the most realistic enhancement you can afford? Do you need forms for swimming or sleeping in? All of these will determine your choice of breast form. crossdress Let’s say you want a good quality pair of realistic looking and feeling breast forms that you intend to wear most days and for going out and that although you will start off wearing in a bra you would like the option of wearing topless with adhesive. Already you are looking at least a mid-range pair of breast forms that not only have a much better appearance, weight and touch of the cheap, heavy breast forms, but that also have re-enforced backs to be able to withstand breast form adhesive. Over time you may also want to sleep with your breast forms on. Again, make sure you consider sleep-friendly breast forms. Many silicone forms are not intended to be worn during sleep since any body-weight brought to bear consistently over time on a silicone breast form can in time weaken the seal and lead to a rupture. Many girls use silicone breast forms for day wear and then switch over to sleep-safe foam breast forms for night time. sissy DID I CHOOSE THE RIGHT BREAST FORMS? When trying on breast forms for the first time, whether in a retail showroom or after receiving your online purchase make sure you have a form-fitting top to hand. The true feminine effect of the shape of enhancement is seen properly under clothing. First-fitting steps:
  1. Attach bra in place
  2. Loosen shoulder straps
  3. One at a time, insert forms into each cup of the bra
  4. Tighten shoulder straps to required firmness to hold forms in place but not squeeze them
  5. Pull on a form-fitting top and inspect the shape in the mirror
[product sku="T-11B"] [product sku="0629DP"]
If you have chosen the correct breast form style and size then they should sit snugly at the bottom of the cup of the bra. With correct shoulder strap adjustment, the top of the form whilst still enclosed in the bra cup, should blend into the chest wall and not pull away from the chest. With a form-fitting top on you are looking for smooth, realistic curves to the shape and slight movement of the ‘bust’ as you move. The breast forms should make you look and feel feminine and for most there is an element of excitement when you slip them on for the first time and you have made the right choice. Choosing breast forms is similar to choosing a favorite pair of shoes or a bra; it can take a little time to find the right one, but as soon as you make the right choice everything just feels like it should. crossdress In conclusion, take your time to research to make sure you make the right choice the first time. If you can get to a crossdresser store to be fitted in-person then great. If not make sure you use a trusted TG/CD business who understand your needs and who have live customer service so you can talk to a person on the phone to walk you through the process without feeling rushed.
 

Which Panty is Right For You (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

crossdressing

Dear Readers,

I’m excited to present a new voice on Crossdresser Heaven. Tabitha has kindly shared her insights on a subject near and dear to most of us.

One Crossdressers Perspective on Choosing the Perfect Panty

crossdressing

Whether you are transgender, a crossdresser, or simply have a fetish for wanting/needing to wear woman’s panties, you will want to choose the style that is the most comfortable for you to wear, as well as present you in the most attractive light should you choose to show someone what you are wearing under your outer clothes! Many lingerie experts will tell you that there are five basic panty styles: bikini, hipster, boyshort, modern brief, and high leg (or high cut) brief. Below is a brief (pun intended) description of each style, and my (perhaps) irreverent thoughts.

Bikini crossdressing

Bikini style panties are just like the bikini swimwear that you can see at any beach, and on nearly every episode of the old television shows of Baywatch, Hawaii Five-0, etc. Perhaps a mere 1% of all women in the world look really attractive in a bikini panty; and most of those are under the age of 30. For the transgender or crossdresser, unless you have a hormonally enhanced body, it is going to be difficult to attain an attractive look with a bikini panty. Since a bikini panty contains such a small amount of material, your first concern will probably be how to hide or even cover up your male anatomy. Second, if you have even a small amount of tummy fat, your tummy will naturally try to drop over the top of the panty because a bikini panty is meant to be worn low, (similar to low-rise jeans), or below the natural waistline. So, for the 99% of the world’s population, (which definitely includes me), this panty style is probably not for you.

Hipster crossdressing

Hipster style panties are similar to bikini panties, but do provide a bit more coverage. Hipsters are also meant to be worn low, but will provide a bit more coverage for your male anatomy. Low rise style seems to be all the rage these days, so this is a good panty choice if you are going to be wearing low-rise outer clothing such as low-rise jeans and shorts. However, those with even a small bit of extra tummy fat will face the same dilemma of a small portion of the tummy wanting to naturally migrate and rest in a place just slightly over the top of the panty. So, for this reason alone, I cannot recommend this style of panty for most of us.

Boyshort crossdressingcrossdressing

Boyshort panties are aptly named, because they can appear and feel as if you are wearing a pair of shorts, (which means that you probably can’t wear these panties if your outerwear is going to consist of short shorts). Boyshorts offer the greatest coverage for your male anatomy and your legs, and for this reason, are sometimes derisively labeled as ‘granny panties” and/or “vintage panties.” Those who utilize these negative labels often overlook the fact that these panties can be very comfortable as the panty top is meant to sit on the natural waistline. Furthermore, they can contour to a wide variety of body styles providing an overall slimming and smooth look. Finally, if you want to shed the “granny panty” look of a boring white panty, know that today’s lingerie designers offer the boyshort in a number of different patterns and bold, vibrant colors. Boyshorts  are not my favorite style of panty, but I do occasionally wear them when I am not wearing outer short shorts.

Modern crossdressing

A modern panty is basically a good compromise between a boyshort and a high leg/high cut panty. It contains a little bit less material than a boyshort, (but still enough for full and comfortable coverage of the male anatomy), while still offering a sexy display of your panty and legs due to its slightly diminished curving side, high cut fit. A modern panty will not likely be mistaken for a granny panty, even though it too sits at the natural waistline, because of its side cut and fit. Modern panties are my second recommended choice to wear on a daily basis.

High Leg/High Cut crossdressing

High leg/high cut panties offer the best of all worlds in my humble opinion. They offer more than adequate coverage for the male anatomy, while also offering a sexy and attractive high cut, side leg view, (hence the panty’s name). However, beware that not every store sales associate is familiar with the high leg style, (or else they are aware, but have been told to push some other panty style onto the unsuspecting customers). I have occasionally had sales associates steer me to the bikini and/or boyshort panties when I requested the location of the high leg panties; and one sales associate even told me that what I really meant was that I was searching for a boyshort panty)! I was a bit aggravated at basically being told that I, as the customer, was wrong; but I have since learned that a lot of sales associates working in lingerie stores/lingerie sections in department stores, have less knowledge of lingerie than me. So, I give my highest recommendation of this panty style to all; as I believe that you will feel comfortable wearing it all day under your outer clothes, and that you will be tempted at the end of the workday to rip off your outer clothes to display your sexy panty and legs to all the world!

In conclusion, it is important to remember that the above recommendations reflect my particular preferences and experiences. So, if you want to wear bikini panties, and feel good doing so, then by all means you should wear bikini panties. Also, my recommendations are largely based on every day and the all-day wearing of panties. While I don’t wear bikini panties daily to work, I have certainly been known to don a pair for a night out at the bar, or while being a “naughty” bedroom partner! So, please consider my comments in this article, but find out for yourself what works for you by not being afraid to try wearing a variety of styles until you find what style makes you feel the prettiest and most feminine!

How to Use High Lift Hair Color (Male to Female Transgender / Crossdressing Tips)

In recent years, the hairdressing industry has seen a marked increase in the number of clients who want to go blonde but don’t want to use bleach. For a long time, there was simply no way to cater to these clients and you couldn’t dye dark hair blonde without the use of bleach. That changed with the advent of high lift hair color, and now it’s possible to dye your hair blonde without the bleach powder. Or at least, in certain circumstances.transgender tips

What is high lift dye?

Many people are afraid of bleach because of the horror stories they’ve heard about melting hair or scalp burns. This is a problem perpetuated through the use of bleach by people who don’t know what they’re doing and haven’t taken the time to learn about the product before they go ahead and bleach their hair. Combine a lack of direction, making the bleach too strong, and using bleach on hair that is already highly damaged and you end up with a widespread fear of bleach.

crossdressing tips

Bleach is not the enemy and is actually a highly useful and necessary product in all salons, but more and more people are being lead to believe it is too harmful to use. As such, hair dye manufacturers discovered a new market to penetrate and high lift dye was born to cater to those who refuse to bleach their hair.
High lift color is permanent hair dye, but it works slightly differently to other hair dyes because of its unique composition. High lift colors contain more ammonia, more dye pigment, and are mixed with a double ratio of 40 vol developer. This leads to a hair dye that lightens your hair more effectively than other blonde dyes yet still tones it during the lightening process.

 

 

High lift hair color vs. bleach

High lift dye was invented to replace the use of bleach for those who didn’t want to bleach their hair, but it is not interchangeable with bleach. The uses of high lift hair color are fairly constrained and it can only reliably be used on virgin hair that is already a dark blonde color, or at most a light brown shade.

A regular blonde hair dye mixed with 30 vol developer can lift around 2 – 3 levels, or in other words, lighten hair from dark blonde to a medium to light blonde color. It does this whilst toning the hair, whereas the use of bleach requires you to tone your hair separately as an additional step. High lift hair color offers a boost to lightening, equivalent to about 1 extra level on top of what a regular blonde dye would achieve.

Although you can lighten your hair up to 4 levels using a high lift dye, you’re also restricted to using it on virgin hair because like other hair dyes, it will not lighten dyed hair. Dye doesn’t lift dye and if you’ve dyed your hair, you will need to use hair dye remover and bleach to lighten it. This means that you need to already be a natural blonde to use a high lift blonde dye. If you apply one of these dyes to brown hair you will end up with a regrettable shade of orange.

The most popular misconception surrounding high lift hair color is that it is dramatically less damaging than bleach. This is not completely true though. The damage of a high lift dye or bleach are roughly equivalent, and this shouldn’t be the primary factor used to determine which product you use.

When you lighten hair with dye or bleach, it is the oxidation from the developer that is causing your hair to lighten. It does this through a chemical reaction with the melanin pigment that is inside each hair. This melanin is what gives your hair its natural color, and by discoloring it with oxidation, your hair becomes lighter.

Damage to your hair isn’t a result of the use of bleach or dye itself though. The damage that occurs is a side effect of the oxidation process that is occurring inside the hair shaft. Whilst oxidation is necessary to lighten melanin and activate the dye molecules so that they become permanent, this oxidation also affects the structure of your hair. When the keratin protein comprising your hair structure is oxidized, it weakens, leading to damaged hair.

From this you can understand that damage to your hair is directly related to the amount of lightening that takes place, through the amount of oxidation. If you were to lighten your hair 3 levels with a high lift dye, or 3 levels with bleach, the amount of damage would be exactly the same because although both products are formulated differently, both work through oxidation. The oxidation lightens your hair, and damages it as a side effect.
The main benefit of high lift dye over bleach in this sense is in being less drying and cutting out the additional toning step that bleaching requires. Dryness compounds damage during hair lightening, so anything you do to keep your hair nourished and conditioned during the process will minimize damage. Bleach is a lot more drying than most high lift dyes.

When should you use high lift
dye?

High lift dye has a specific use and it will generally work very well if you use it properly. This means that you should not be applying it to black or brown hair and expect to end up with blonde hair. You also shouldn’t be using high lift hair color on hair that has been dyed in the past. Unless your last color has completely grown out of your hair, you can’t lighten your hair with high lift dye.

High lift dyes are best used under the following conditions:

  • You have virgin hair
  • You only require 3 – 4 levels of lift
  • Your hair is in good condition
  • Your hair is already dark blonde or a very light brown

Although high lift dyes are generally used to dye hair a light blonde without bleach, they can still be used to lighten darker hair. Please note that you won’t reach a blonde shade if you do this, and you still must have virgin hair in order for the dye to work. The darker your hair is, the less lightening that will occur, and you need to tone it afterwards because the blonde dye in the high lift isn’t concentrated enough to tone dark hair. In this case, bleach is far superior.

 

How to prepare high lift hair dye

High lift hair color is prepared in mostly the same way as other permanent hair dyes. You will need a tinting bowl and brush to mix it in, as well as the appropriate developer to mix with the dye.

In this case, the developer used has to be 40 vol developer. The boxed high lift dyes you can find in supermarkets that use 30 vol developer or less are not high lift dyes at all. Manufacturers can call these products ‘high lift’ or ‘hi color’ because there is no set standard for naming a high lift dye. These products that mimic actual high lift dyes are merely regular dye marketed in a way that makes it seem like they lift more than other dye brands because of their name.

The reason you need to use 40 vol developer is two-fold. Firstly, high lift dyes are formulated to work optimally with this concentration of peroxide and the lift and deposit balance is changed when you don’t use this. Secondly, if you don’t use 40 vol, the dye loses much of its lightening power and you may as well be using a regular blonde dye as the high lift will be a waste of time. Always mix high lift hair color with 40 vol developer.

You also need to be aware of what shade you’re using and choose an ash shade rather than the shade you want. Even though high lift dyes are formulated to tone hair as your hair lightens, they don’t live up to expectations here. An ash shade is necessary to counteract the warmth crossdress that will be revealed during the lightening process. If anything, even the ash shade won’t be enough to counteract the warmth and you will still need to tone your hair anyway.

Once you’re ready to prepare the dye, measure it by volume and to each part of high lift hair color, add two parts of 40 vol developer. It’s easiest to mix developer into dye by adding a small amount first, then gradually incorporating the rest. Otherwise the dye has a much thicker consistency than the pool of developer surrounding it and you have to go to extra effort to incorporate it all together without making a mess.

Lift booster

Hair dye brands will sometimes produce a lift booster product that is designed to be added to their high lift color. Lift booster is essentially an ammonia supplement that boosts the ammonia content in the high lift.

Ammonia acts as a catalyst, driving the decomposition of the peroxide in the developer into active oxygen that oxidizes and lightens the melanin in your hair. More ammonia means that more oxidation can take place, and lift booster can provide up to 1 more level of lift when mixed into your high lift color.

Should you wish to use lift booster, you should only be using it if your hair is in good condition. High lift colors are just as damaging as bleach in most cases, and adding lift booster will increase the lightening, but this means more damage as well. You also shouldn’t use it if you have a sensitive scalp. crossdressing

After you dye your hair with a high lift color, it may be necessary to tone your hair. Like all hair color, this dye will fade with time too, and a regular maintenance routine is the best way to keep your hair looking great and prevent it from becoming brassy.

You will also need to condition your hair thoroughly after using a high lift, just like when you bleach your hair. For this purpose, a conditioning treatment or a deep conditioner is all you will need. Add a protein treatment like Redken CAT Reconstructor and your hair will look and feel great long into the future.
