When dyeing your hair, try to avoid the most common mistakes that can affect the results or even damage your hair.
1. Washing Before Dyeing
Do not clean and dye your hair on the same day. Oil on the scalp and hair will lessen the chance of irritation.
2. Taking A Huge Jump
When you dye your hair at home, you should avoid taking a drastic change. Instead, opt for a maximum of 2 shades darker or lighter than your current shade. If you want a big makeover, then go to a salon.
3. Dyeing The Eyebrows
Using hair products on your eyebrows is dangerous because it is so close to the eyes. Anyways, eyebrow hair and the hair on the head are different.
4. Washing Too Quickly
You can try coloring your resistant grays to see how long you actually need to keep the dye to get the right result.
5. Not Following Instructions
Read the instructions properly, especially when you are about to rinse the hair. Some brands state add water first and create a lather. This helps the color spread, plus you can rinse it out more quickly.
6. Wrong Product
If you have less than 30% gray, opt for semi-permanent color instead.
7. Using One Color
For a more natural look, use 2 different shades. First, use the permanent, ammonia-based color on the roots. Towel-dry your hair and then dye again with a semi-permanent non-ammonia product that’s a shade lighter. Leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing and conditioning hair.
