Best Ways to Dye your hair

1

Use a box dye

A box dye, while frowned upon by the professionals, can be a cheap and effective way to spruce up your look if done correctly.

For best results, use a rattail comb (or any comb with a pointed end), a hair dye application brush, and some alligator clips.

Before you use the hair dye or any harsh chemical on your body, make sure to test a small patch of skin with the product to ensure you won't have an allergic reaction.

Once done, you can start dyeing your hair. Apply Vaseline to your forehead, neck, and ears, anywhere that dye might seep, to avoid dyeing your skin. Mix your dye as per the manufacturer's instructions and separate your hair into sections using the rattail comb, and securing with the alligator clips. Apply the dye to your hair using the brush, or gloved fingers, one section at a time, trying to get as little dye as possible on your scalp.

Let sit according to the manufacturer's directions and then rinse until the water runs clear. Follow with shampoo and conditioner.

Use Bleach

If your hair is darker, and you want to color your hair any color lighter than it already is, you need to use bleach.

It is recommended that you bleach your hair at a salon, but it is possible to do at home. Depending on how dark your hair is, and your desired result, you may have to apply two or more times. It is best to lighten your hair little by little. If you do it all at once, you can cause serious damage. The maximum that you can go at once is three shades, or levels, at a time.

You will need a rattail comb (or any comb with a pointed end), an application brush, and some alligator clips.

Before you use any harsh chemical on your body, especially bleach, make sure to test a small patch of skin with the product to ensure you won't have an allergic reaction.

Once done, you can start the bleaching process. Mix your bleach and developer as per the manufacturer's instructions and separate your hair into sections using the alligator clips. Apply the bleach to your hair using the brush, orĀ glovedĀ fingers, one section at a time, trying to get as little as possible on your scalp.

Let sit for as long as the manufacturer recommends (you can also rub some bleach off of a strand to see approximately how light it is) and rinse immediately. Follow with shampoo and conditioner. Make sure to be extra careful while you're handling your hair, as it will be extra sensitive.

Home Dye

The first thing you need to do before thinking of dying your hair is washing it 24 or 48 hours before you apply the dye. This will allow the dye to bind naturally with your hair. Then start by picking the color you want, brush your hair, gather the necessary tools. And then do the strand test to assess the result on your hair. Afterward, you want to apply the color, add some heat, and rinse it.Home Dye
