How to Color Your Hair at Home

A quick and easy approach to switch up your appearance is to colour your hair at home. This is a detailed tutorial on colouring your hair at home:

1. Choose the Right Hair Color

Choose a hair dye based on your hair colour, skin tone, and desired shade. Read the directions and choose a permanent, semi-permanent, or temporary hair colour package.

2. Gather Supplies

Buy a hair colour kit with gloves, applicator brush or bottle, developer, and colourant. Protect your clothes from dye stains using old towels, shirts, or capes. on avoid stains, use petroleum jelly or barrier cream on your hairline, ears, and neck.

3. Perform a Patch Test

Try a patch test by placing a little dye mixture behind your ear or on your inner arm before colouring your whole head. Check for skin or allergy symptoms after 24-48 hours.

4. Prepare Your Hair

Wash your hair a day or two before colouring to remove buildup and oils, but don't condition. To ensure dye distribution, detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb.

5. Mix and Apply the Dye

Mix the developer and colourant in a plastic or glass dish according to the hair colour kit instructions. Apply the colour evenly from roots to ends using the applicator brush or container. Section your hair for easier application and complete coverage.

6. Wait for Processing

For heat retention and processing, cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic wrap after dyeing. Follow the directions' processing time for your selected colour intensity.

7. Rinse and Condition

Rinse your hair with lukewarm water until clear after processing. A deep conditioning treatment or the kit's conditioner will nurture and moisturise coloured hair. Rinse again and towel-dry hair gently.

8. Style and Maintain

Use heat protectant products to style your hair with heat tools. Keep your hair colour vibrant with color-safe shampoos and conditioners. Avoid overwashing your hair to prevent colour loss.
