Our top 10 tips for colouring your hair at home

1

Get best Consultation

Seek expert online consultation. We have the worlds leading stylist and colourists available to help you colour, style and look after your hair.

2

Don’t overdo it

If you’re looking for a whole new look, leave it to professionals, drastic colour change won’t work at home as they require skills and expertise

3

Touch up your roots, and only your roots.

If you’re just doing your roots, we recommend putting a coconut oil or conditioning mask on mid shaft and ends to help preserve any. We also recommend adding Vaseline around the hairline to prevent dye from staining your scalp.

4

Brush Your hair

Make sure your hair is untangled before you begin, even the smallest knot can cause problem.

5

Section, section, section.

to avoid patchiness, create a middle part that runs to the back of your head and split the hair into four sections, two in front of the ears and two in the back. Be organised about the application use small sections .50 cm and use clips for your section and work through them front to back.

6

Don’t tie it up

Always keep your hair down when the colour is developing, sweeping hair into a bun or pony can cause uneven colour.

7

Timing matters

Processing time can majorly affect your colour outcome. To achieve the colour and coverage you want, make sure to leave the dye for the full recommended

8

Add Shampoo

If your ends are very dry and you’re dyeing your entire head, don’t put dye on your hair. Instead 4 minutes before you suppose to rinse, add two squirts of shampoo into the dye left in the bowl apply the mixture to your ends. It dilutes the dyes but still gives you a pinch of colour and shine.

9

Add Water

Before you rinse out the colour, sprinkle a little water on the head and mush your hair around with your hands for 2 minute “it emulsifies the dye, so you don’t end up with lines or streaks”

10

After care is crucial

Use a shampoo and conditioner that is suited to the colour and texture of your hair and to the tone you want to protect from fading.
