How to dye hair
A few things you should keep in mind: You'll want to save major hair color changes for the salon. The biggest DIY dyeing snafu is thinking you can transition from, say, black to platinum hair at home (or even from brown to blonde). Changes from one color family to another can require multiple processes, which are best left to a salon colorist who knows how to assess tones and minimize damage. Remember that your result will be somewhere between your natural color and the photo on the box.
Is it safe to dye your hair at home?
Yes, it is generally safe to color your hair at home as long as you follow the directions on the product's packaging. A few exceptions: You should skip a DIY dye job if you've recently relaxed or permed your hair since both processes can cause damage. And remember that treated hair will process color more quickly, so you don't want to leave it on as long.
What you'll need:
• Color brush and bowl
• Makeup removing wipes
• Disposable shower cap
• Handheld mirror
• Latex-free disposable gloves
• Clear solid lip balm
Now, let's get started with top hair color expert and GH Beauty Lab tricks for how to dye your hair at home like a pro!
#1 Select your best shade
To locate your best shade at the store, eye those near your present one. Enclosed colors are typically shown shading requests on a rack: Hold an area of your hair up to a case to find a nearby match, at that point browse the following two shades on either side.
#2 Buy two boxes of hair dye
You don't need to run out of color part of the way through the cycle. If your hair is shoulder length or more, you may require two boxes to cover your entire head, depending on hair thickness. In the event that you end up with an extra box, you can generally spare it for next time or bring it back.
#3 Don't mix shades for a "custom color"
Except if you're a professional, combining numerous various shades of hair shading isn't suggested (ever!). None of the significant organizations we addressed would ensure that the subsequent shading would be an anticipated mix. Truth be told, in any event, when you stay with a solitary shading, the outcome generally shifts marginally based on what's envisioned on the case. Your smartest choice is to just pick one shade and adhere to the guidelines precisely, strand test included.
#4 Don't skip the strand test
In spite of the fact that bypassing it is enticing, the strand test is critical, particularly while attempting another shade. Color a couple of cut or concealed hairs to start with, at that point take a gander at the outcome before you commit. A basic ghastliness story from analyzers who didn't do this: hair that turned orange and purple!
#5 Wear old, easy-to-remove clothing
To abstain from recoloring garments, put on an old robe or catch front shirt (or as some GH analyzers revealed they do, go naked!) so you won't need to lift a top over your head when it's an ideal opportunity to flush. Spread surfaces (floor, sink) with trash containers or layers of paper you can throw thereafter rather than sheets or towels that can get splashed through and need washing.
#6 Protect your skin from the dye
There's nothing more terrible than winding up with obvious stripes of shading on your brow. As opposed to utilizing a goopy treatment to shield skin from color, monitor your skin against stains by gliding a reasonable solid lip balm along your hairline, including around your ears, before applying to shade. "Its little size makes application exact," Hill says.
#7 Take on a similar mindset as a specialist and set up your devices on the counter before you start
Peruse the included guidelines before you hop in. That way, you'll be sure about the means and won't need to stop mid-process, which could prompt mix-ups like leaving the color on too long or missing zones.
#8 Stock up on extra gloves
You slipped on the container's plastic gloves to ensure your hands while putting on the color, however you have to wear them while cleaning the color out, too. Have an extra pair of disposable gloves on hand to protect your skin from staining when you rinse the shading off, in case your original ones are too soiled to use once more.
#9 Start dyeing on dry hair
Hair shading specialists (and hair shading bundling directions) recommend coloring your hair when it is dry. When hair is immersed with water, the color may not take to the hair strands or become weakened, delivering an unfortunate outcome.
#10 Stop squeezing from the bottle
Spurting the color out and spreading it everywhere on over your hair might be simple (and fun!), however, this technique can be untidy and imprecise. Get a bowl and a brush, similar to salon colorists use, to mix and paint on color with less wreck and the most even, proficient outcomes.
#11 Start dyeing at the roots
You should start applying hair color at the roots. Since they are the place regrowth happens first and the least harmed part of the hair, they need the most shading and preparing time. Let the hair shading produce for the measure of time demonstrated on bundling bearings. At that point go it over the remainder of your hair to convey it equally and maintain a strategic distance from a two-tone impact. Work in four to six segments like salon stars does (use hair clips as you go in the event that you wish) to guarantee full inclusion.
#12 Look into two mirrors
Coloring the back of your head can be tricky. Use a handheld mirror to check the back of your head in the bathroom mirror as you color so you won’t miss spots.
#13 Highlight hair with a toothbrush
Here’s a smart trick from GH testers who color their hair at home: When applying highlights or lowlights, use a clean toothbrush or mascara wand to paint on the dye precisely and subtly. Genius! Place them sparingly where the sun would hit — around the hairline and stemming from your part.
#14 Remove dye spills ASAP
To sweep away any dye splatters as they occur so they don't get an opportunity to set, have facial purifying wipes on hand like GH Beauty Lab.
#15 Put a shower cap on while you wait
Place a disposable shower cap over your head while the color processes to prevent it from dripping. Then you can don't hesitate to prepare supper or Netflix-gorge.
#16 Avoid water to make your dye last
It's standard number one for making shading last. Regardless of the accuse put for cleanser, "water is really the fundamental offender in shading blurring." Your smartest options: Apply dry shampoo at night to broaden time between washes; connect a channel to your showerhead to eliminate harming components, and cleanser toward the finish of your shower to diminish water introduction. When swimming, abstain from wetting hair, or ensure it with a dip top or a covering of conditioner.
#17 Swap in a color-safe shampoo
No cleanser is thoroughly shading safe, since all shampooing requires wetting hair — and water itself strips color.
Expand your shade's existence with a cleanser or conditioner planned explicitly for shading treated hair, like the GH Beauty Lab's best shampoos and conditioners for hued hair. Look for phrasing, for example, "shading ensure," "shading protecting" or "for shading" on the packaging. They're more uncertain to strip away included shading (which different items may), so your new shade endures longer.
#18 Use a color-boosting gloss weekly
The GH Beauty Lab has discovered that utilizing a color-saving cleanser, conditioner, or hair-sparkle treatment once every week between color occupations can renew hair color. Try Beauty Lab test winner John Frieda Color Refreshing Gloss, which comes in seven shades and stores a low degree of color, from blonde to red, earthy colored, and black. It beat the Lab's test for upgrading and extending the life of analyzers' shading and leaving healthy-looking sparkle.
#19 Prevent color from fading in the sun
Avoid the sun (or wear a cap) to shield hair from helping. "The sun works like dye, separating counterfeit shading as well as the melanin that gives common hair its color." So UV assurance is similarly as significant for your hair with respect to your skin. Since there's nothing of the sort as sunscreen for hair, "spread it up with a cap or a scarf when you're uncovered for a significant stretch of time, for example, at the seashore," he suggests.
How to care for hair after dyeing
- Choose nourishing hair care products. Dyeing hair will cause some damage to the scalp, so it is best to use some products that are easy to absorb and protect the scalp to moisturize and repair
- Wash your hair with warm water. If the water temperature is too high, the pigment will be lost, so use warm water to wash your hair after dyeing your hair.
- Use a gentle conditioner. The too heavy conditioner may accelerate the loss of pigment, so choose a light conditioner is particularly important at this time.
- Use spray. The spray can enhance the shine of hair, and can also play a role in moisturizing.
- Essential oil + gesture massage the scalp. Choosing an essential oil that can soothe the scalp, and then adding the correct massage technique to do "SPA" for the scalp is also a good way to maintain and dye your hair.
