At-home Hair Color: Seven Tips for Great Results
Doing your own home hair color for the first time can be
intimidating, to say the least. Have I chosen the right
color? What if I make a mistake and wind up with green hair?
What if I end up with overprocessed, dry damaged hair?
If you know what clothing colors suit you, you can also use that to help
in choosing hair color:
4. How do I get ready to color my hair the first time?
It's a good idea to gather a few materials together before starting: an old T-shirt, a few old towels and a washcloth that you don't mind getting stained, some hair clips for sectioning your hair, a timer, and a hand mirror to see the back of your head.
5. If I color my hair at home and hate it, what can I do?
There are some home hair color products you can use to repair the damage, but it isn't easy. The problem is that if you used a home hair color kit to obtain a lighter color, your hair has been bleached and colored in a single process. So the color needs to be added back in a process called "filling" before using the final color formula. Whatever you do, don't simply buy a box of your original color and try to cover over a bad dye job... it won't work. Fixing hair color gone wrong is a multi-stage process so a trip to the salon may be in order.
6. I already have permed hair. Can I color it without damaging it?
If your hair has been permed or relaxed, color has to be applied carefully or it can weaken the structure of your hair. Salons have colors specially formulated for treated hair. But if you insist on home hair coloring, choose a shade darker than you want since processed hair may come out lighter than expected. Then do a strand test to make sure your hair can handle the chemical stress.
7. I love my new color... now how do I keep it looking good?
You'll probably want to recolor every four to six weeks. Make a record of the hair color product and shade you used, and how long you left it on the ends and the regrowth. Use shampoos and conditioners formulated for color-treated hair to prevent fading. Stay out of the sun and chlorinated pools. Hair that has been previously been bleached is prone to such effects and should be rinsed as soon as possible. Don't use heavy conditioners and oil treatments after coloring... they can lift the color.
Now go out and enjoy your new look and all the money you saved by doing it yourself!
