If you want to change your hair color at home, you may want to learn these 9 tips that I will recommend to you as a professional hair dye expert.
I know how scary it can be to change up your hair color, especially when you are doing it at home. I am here to tell you that if done right, changing your hair color yourself is actually pretty easy! Here are 9 tips for making the process go smoothly and successfully.
With 23 years of experience, I have acquired a lot of information and I think I have obtained right and wrong results.
I dyed my hair with box dyes because I was curious about the results.
Again, with the hair lighteners you use at home, I lightened my hair color from dark to platinum.
As a result, I prepared this article by bringing together the experiences of changing hair color at home from women around me and my own professional knowledge for 23 years and I wanted to serve you as a guide.
If the shade difference is large, dye it stage by stage.
You can get the desired result by dyeing your hair step by step. By doing this, you will reduce the damage to your hair.
For example, if your hair is black and you want to get a honey foam hair color first, switch from black to brown. After resting your hair for two months, you can switch from brown to honey foam. Remember! Changing hair color at home needs patience and practice.
Do not rely on the colors in the Hair Boxes.
You can never get exactly the same hair color on the hair dye boxes.
If you want to lighten your hair color, you should get the lightest shade of the hair color you want. If you want to darken it, you should get a few tones of the hair color you want.
For example, your hair is 6.0 in color. If you want 3.0 shades. Opt for 4.0 shade hair dye.
Because you always obtain a darker tone than the picture.
If you don’t want orange and redness, use ashy hair dyes
If you do not want your hair to be orange, red and copper tones, you should choose ashy hair dyes.
Which Hair Color Should I Use for More Vivid Colors?
For more vibrant tones and colors, you should use hair dyes containing gold such as honey foam and golden brown. You can also add depth and shine to the hair by mixing these hair dyes.
Changing Hair Color at Home With Balayage and Ombre
If your hair has different colors, for example, balayage or shadow or ombre, and if you want it to be the same color, you should dye the balayage parts after the parts without balayage, so you will get a more natural look. If you are going to darken your hair, you should first paint the parts with balayage, that is, light color, and apply the paint to the whole after 15-20 minutes.
When Hair Dye Achieves Its True Color
At least 1.5 – 2 weeks after dyeing your hair, your hair color will settle and take its original color. For this reason, I recommend that you do your hair dyeing procedures at least 1 month apart. In this way, your hair will be less damaged. In the meantime, if you care for your hair, it will be more resistant.
