Planning on changing your hair colour at home? Here are some things you should keep in mind
Changing your hair colour or going for a vibrant colour needs a little bit of forethought. Here are some pointers you should know before you begin the process.
We are all slightly fed up with self-isolation and if you still haven’t reached a point where you’ve given yourself bangs then I am sure you are contemplating an at-home colour job. A change seems like the only thing that can keep you going at this time, and we are all for it. While we do have a step-by-step guide to colour your hair at home perfectly BUT there are a few other factors that count when you are not just dyeing your roots.
Here’s a list.
Pick a colour
If you’re brunette it would serve you well to choose a colour that doesn’t require a bleached base. So be it a red, mahogany, bronze or dark aubergine (violet) would be something you would pick. But the quest doesn’t end there. You need to first find your undertone as you would when you pick your makeup (Here’s a guide). The undertone will help you decide the shade of red or violet and then also help you pick the vibrancy.
Colours need to sit
If you pick red or violet then you need to understand that these colours usually start off darker and then slowly reach the shade you like. So don’t panic if you don’t see the shade you want to see immediately, one wash will help your hair colour settle in and reach optimum vibrancy.
