Your dream hair is waiting! In fact, instead of asking how to colour your hair at home, maybe ask yourself if you should colour your hair at home? Annnnnd probably proceed to scold you about 'colour banding', and 'drying' and 'harmful chemicals' and all of that extremely important stuff.
While ideally colouring would always be left to the professional, a trip to the salon just isn't always in the budget or the time schedule. And as someone who has left more than a few salons after telling the stylist how much I love the particular shade of yellow, they have somehow made my naturally white-blonde hair, only to later cry in the car - I GET IT.
Cream Blonde 20C Styled by pinklablonde. Whether you're after home highlights, an all-over-colour or a brighter blonde, there are a few common steps when it comes to how to colour your hair at home. Using the right tools to colour your hair at home is equally as important as using the right colour kit.
Old school aluminium foil is still the go-to for many pro hairstylists, so this is what you should use for a DIY job too.
In fact, the only difference between the foil used in salons and foil in your kitchen draw is; in salons, it's pre-cut. The reason I suggest this is because one, you probably already own it and two, it is a heat conductor. They're also flexible meaning the dye will not be applied too perfectly, creating a more subtle, blended look rather than harsh streaks. Image credit: sittingprettyhalohair. While I usually skip washing my hair for a few days before seeing my stylist apologies for whatever you find in thereit is ideal to DIY dye one day after your last wash. Make sure your hair is dry and wear an old zip-up hoodie or button-down shirt so you don't have to pull anything over your hair.
To avoid all of your hair falling out, scolding your scalp or, any other tragedies, always do a strand test. This is not only for your own safety, but it will also help you see how long to leave the colour on for and help you achieve the best end. If not, apply again to the same section and check the development every five minutes until the desired colour is achieved. Pro tip: If you're just touching up your roots, cover the mid-lengths and ends of your hair with a coconut oil hair mask. This will prevent the colour from leaking down and seeping into other parts of your hair.
There are many different at-home hair colouring kits, so make sure you chose one specifically for highlights. All-over-colour hair kits won't lift or lighten pigments, they also won't remove the older dye, rather just build on or mix with to create a weird, dark hybrid colour situation. If you ever tried to give yourself blonde highlights in high school, you know what I'm talking about. All over colour also has a much creamier consistency than highlight kits, which can run into other sections of hair and create a blotchy look.
You should also choose a highlight kit which is suited for your current hair, not the hair you're trying to achieve. If you have brown hair with a red base and you want blonde highlights, grabbing the first box you see that re "bright blonde," could have some pretty dire. Beige Blonde Now that you've chosen the correct kit, prepped your locks, done a strand test and changed into a hoodie; it's time to begin.
When colouring your hair at home for highlights it is super important that you keep the strokes consistent with specific sections of hair. Start with the sections which frame your face as it doesn't matter if these sections develop for a little longer. Place the colour onto your chosen tool, take an inch wide section and start the colour a few cms away from the scalp. Pull the colour downwards in a consistent sweeping motion until you reach the end of the section. Work you way backwards to the middle of your head gradually thinning out the sections to half an inch as you go.
Once you reach the back and under-layers of your hair, you should be applying dye to quarter-inch sections of hair. Pro tip: don't be too neat with it. Natural highlights are not uniformed, and placing them too perfectly will create them early s tiger stripe streaks we've all tried so hard to forget. Light Brown 6. Styled by alanamevissen. Shampoo your hair thoroughly ensuring all dye has gone bye-bye and then use deep conditioning treatment.Drake - Hold On, We’re Going Home ft. Majid Jordan
Choose a toner according to your natural hair, the colour of your kit and the overall look you're trying to achieve. For example, a gold toner helps to tone down icy blonde, and vice versa. And icy toner will help beat brass and a green toner takes the red tinge from brown. This is because the developer in at-home hair dye kits is much stronger than the one's salons use, and usually, the model's hair on the box has been done by a professional, at a salon. So, instead, use the chart on the back or top of the box which indicates what the colour will look like on different shades.
Medium Brown 4. If you're using permanent dye, I'd suggest choosing a shade which is slightly darker than the colour you're wanting to achieve. However, semi-permanent dyes do not contain developer, meaning they get darker and darker the longer they're left in your hair. So go a lighter shade. Dark Brown 2 Styled by jodycallanhair. This is especially important if you have thick, coarse hair or hair which is past your shoulders. Pro tip: always use a plastic bowl to mix your colour.
A metal one will oxidise the dye and cause it to change colour. The texture of your hair is an important thing to consider when it comes to learning how to colour your hair at home. The texture of your hair will affect the way the colour-dye develops and how the colour turns out.
Colour absorbs quicker in curly, frizzy or coarse hair and usually in a cooler, ashier tone. Dyes which are light such as beige, or champaign blondes yet still slightly darker than your natural locks are more suitable. As with styling, sectioning your hair is super important when it comes to colouring your hair at home. Split your hair into four sections, two in front of the ears and two behind them and clip them to keep secure.
Pro tip: when you're adding the colour to your hair, avoid the ends. The ends of your hair are dry enough without having dye applied directly to them. Instead, when there is about three minutes left before rinsing add two pumps of shampoo and some water to the dye bottle and give it a good shake.
Rinse this through the ends of your hair so they can get a tinge of colour without being exposed to the harsher stuff. Once you've applied the dye you'll probably be tempted to wrap your locks up and leave them until the timer goes off, but keep them down. Leaving your hair down ensures that the formula stays even and doesn't spread to different sections of hair.
Leaving your locks down until it's time to rinse creates an even, natural and blended all-over-colour. Dark Brown 2. Going blonde, or blonder is an extremely delicate process so if you're a home dye rookie, I'd probably steer clear - or at the very least use a semi-permanent dye. Ash Blonde Styled by krystalwarton. Cream Blonde 20C. Do everything the same as the all-over colour section- except work from back to front when applying the colour.
Once the colour is covering all sections, massage it into your hair so that all strands are evenly covered. Cream Blonde 20C Styled by taylahelizabethhair. Let the dye sit for as long as the strand test indicated you should, but check it every five minutes. Seriously, if you over-bleach your hair you might as well just shave it off because it's gonna fall out anyway. While I did say leave them for a more natural look, it is important the contrast isn't too stark.
So, when there are about minutes left on the timer, apply the remaining colour to your roots. If it's not, apply more dye to that section and leave it for an additional five minutes. Continue until you reach your desired colour. So if you're having trouble rinsing the colour add a bonding repair treatment, I love Olaplex to help strip the bleach. Once you have rinsed the bleached, and you've shampooed and rinsed that out too, towel dry your hair. Also, follow up with a hydrating treatment during the week, just not right away.
