Home Hair Coloring

Salons can be very expensive, and sometimes the price is just out of the question. Instead, people turn to color that they can apply to their hair at home. It can be scary at first, going into a store and not knowing where to start. There are so many shades of each basic color! To keep the overwhelming feeling to a minimum, try not to rush yourself. Spend a good amount of time picking out a shade you like, and then compare it to similar versions by other brands. Keep in mind that just because a product is more expensive, that does not necessarily mean it will be better.

When you pick out your color and take it home, don’t be afraid of it! With a few small tips, you will become an expert on doing your hair at home.

What I suggest, is to either have a friend help you apply the color, or to use a lot of bobby pins to pin up sections that you have finished with. Don’t be afraid to put too much color on, only worry about not having enough! As for the gloves the package comes with.. throw them away! They are usually very thin and break easily, allowing the color to stain your fingers. You can pick up a cheap pack of rubber gloves from a store that will work much better.

After the color has been applied, use a hair clip to keep it off of your neck. After you let it sit for the correct amount of time, all you need to do is wash it out and add conditioner. See? It’s not that scary! I bet you became an expert before you even finished reading this!

I like to use home hair coloring as an “extender” to my professional hair color from my stylist. Sometimes those roots just start showing way too soon before I’m ready to come in to the salon, so I do a touch up at home to make it last a few more weeks.

Did you know that Amazon has tons of cool makeup products?
