Things to Know Before Dyeing Your Hair

The seasons are changing, and that means hairstyles are changing as well. As summer approaches, you might be tempted to dye your hair to cover up grays or add some flair. While going to the store and picking up a box of dye might be appealing, it is not as simple as you might think. We’ve compiled a list of tips to keep your hair dye from becoming a hair fail.

Ask for Advice

If you are preparing to color your hair or if you need to color your hair in a pinch, speak with your colorist to determine the color level they would recommend. Your colorist will have valuable information that you can use to guide you to the proper color for your needs.

Go for Semi-Permanent Dye When Coloring Gray Hair

If you are looking to add color to gray hair, it is best to choose a semi-permanent color instead of a permanent dye. Doing this will blend hair with minimal damage, especially since it needs to be treated more frequently.

Choose One Shade Lighter

When you are choosing a box color, make sure you pick a shade lighter or half a shade lighter than your natural hair color. This is a safe bet so you don’t end up with a color that doesn’t match your natural color.

Experiment with Root Touch-Up Products

If you don’t want to dye your hair at home but want to mask some of your grays until you can book an appointment at the salon, then use a temporary hair color spray to covers the gray hair.

Apply Your Color in Sections

Although applying color at home is not recommended, if you really need a quick fix, then be sure you part your hair in sections before applying color. This makes the application process more manageable and helps to distribute the color evenly.

Let Professionals Color Your Hair

In theory, you should be able to go pick up a box of dye, follow the instructions, and look like a supermodel with your newly colored hair. Unfortunately, dyeing your hair on your own can be tricky, and there is plenty of room for error. The best way to make sure your hair comes out the way you want it to is by letting professionals dye it for you.
