Many women prefer to dye their hair at home, without the help of a specialist. Most of the time, hair dyeing at home is more affordable than hair dyeing in the salon but it may happen that the results are not what you want.
Dyeing your hair at home
Hair dyeing at home can pose many challenges, but with a little skill and with the help of the tips below, you can get excellent results even at home.
- Decide what shade suits you
First of all, if you prefer hair dyeing at home, you need to know how to choose the right color.
When you buy the hair dyer, opt for a shade that will be in harmony with the shade of your skin and your eyes. So, whether you choose to lighten up or darken up your hair color, it is very important to opt for a dyer that is two to three more darker or lighter than the natural color of your hair.
It is advisable, if you have skin in cold tones, to choose shades of chocolate, brown, dark gray, or black. If your skin is in the category of warm tones, then choose to color your hair in shades of blond gold, light brown, brown, or red.
Many times there are exceptions, so before you buy your dyer, it’s good to know for sure whether the hue that you want to color your hair is right for you or not. To get rid of the doubts, you can dye a very small section of your hair (above your ear), which can easily be covered with the rest of your hair to see if your shade suits you or not.
- Pay attention to the ingredients
Hair dyeing at home requires increased attention to the ingredients that a good paint should contain. When you do not have a handy specialist to show you the right product, you have to choose a dye with a formula that protects your hair during the dyeing process. So try to opt for a paint containing nutritious oils, keratin, vitamin C, and UV filters.
These ingredients will protect and feed your hair while protecting it from solar radiation.
